The comedian said, "We wanted Aniston to be on the show with us. And.I remember being on the ninth floor where Lorne Michael's office was and seeing Jen come in. I was like, 'Oh my God, there's Aniston. Is she about to be on our show? Her going in, having a talk, leaving. I was like, 'Wow! I'm gonna be working with Aniston?'" However, Sandler said he was told shortly afterwards that the actress had turned down the role and he jokingly added, "I remember thinking, 'She said no?' She's gonna do that 'Friends'? What the hell is 'Friends'? That was the truth". Aniston said she received plenty of criticism for turning down an established series for a new sitcom, saying, "They were like, 'You're so stupid".
