Jennifer Aniston was initially put off by SNL star Vanessa Bayer's impression of her
When Jennifer Aniston first saw Vanessa Bayer's impression of her, she gasped.
The actress shared her initial reaction to Bayer playing her Friends character Rachel in her new cover story interview with In Style magazine.
"I remember someone saying, 'Did you see your impression on SNL?'" Aniston recalled editor-in-chief Laura Brown. "My first answer was: 'What? No, I'm not an impression [-worthy].' They played it for me and [gasps]: 'I don't sound like that.' "

However, Aniston said that after taking a moment to process it, she could see its worth.
"Everyone said it was a compliment, but I really had to take care of it and put my little cock between my legs because I thought I was making fun of myself," she said. "It's always the gut feeling: 'They're making fun of me.'"
The actress later even competed with the comedian - who was dressed as the early version of the character, in jumpsuit signed Rachel 'do - on the 2016 SNL Weekend Update in a segment where she jokingly pleaded with an obsessed Bavarian for the harassment cease them and drop the dentition.
"You really have to try to stop texting me every day," Aniston said. "You know, Friends was five million and five years ago, so I guess we just have to keep going."
Aniston finally relented and hung out with Bayer as Rachel while the two shared a large plate of nachos together.
The Friends star also commented on her latest TikTok doppelganger who lip-syncs Rachel's lines from the show.
"A friend sent me this - I checked it out and it freaked me out," she told InStyle. “She's not exactly like me, but of all the people who said, 'I look just like you,' she was pretty close. Sometimes you say, 'Thank you?' And sometimes you say, 'Wow, thank you.' "
