Jennifer Aniston turned down a comedy career as a Saturday Night Live regular to star in FRIENDS.
The actress' longtime pal Adam Sandler revealed the fact that Aniston was once approached to become an SNL castmember during a TV chat with Oprah Winfrey on Wednesday (02Feb11) as the two movie stars were promoting their new film Just Go With It.
He explained that the actress was hot comedy property when he was a writer/comic on the weekly satirical show.
He said, "We wanted Aniston to be on the show with us and I remember... seeing Jen come in. I was like, 'Oh my God, there's Aniston; is she about to be on our show?'
"I was like, 'I'm gonna be working with Aniston,' and then she said no: 'She's gonna do that Friends; what the hell is Friends?'"
Aniston recalled, "They thought I was making a huge mistake."
