Jennifer Aniston pops in to SNL to meet... Rachel Green

Jennifer Aniston made a surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live to give her opinion on Vanessa Bayer’s impression of her Friends character.

Vanessa has been impersonating Rachel, the New Yorker made famous by Jen in the hit show, for months.

But in the hilarious sketch, the actress dropped by to playfully suggest Vanessa’s take on her famous alter ego wasn’t so great.

“Friends was five million and five years ago … so I think we just need to move on,” she said.

When Vanessa said she couldn’t let go of her Friends fixation because she does “a great bit” as Rachel, Jen asked: “Is it a great bit though?”

The pair co-star in the upcoming comedy Office Christmas Party.
