Reese Witherspoon just revealed that we could've seen more of her character, Jill Green, little sister to our beloved Rachel Green, on the hit TV show, Friends. And as it turns out, Witherspoon's one-time co-star on the show, Jennifer Aniston, was just as surprised as the rest of us.
In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Witherspoon was joined by Aniston to promote their latest series together, The Morning Show, where she explained that she declined an opportunity presented to her by the producers of Friends to return to the iconic sitcom as Jill Green. The actresses previously played on-screen sisters in two consecutive episodes as part of the sixth season of the show back in 2000.

"Did you know they asked me back and I said I can't do it?" Witherspoon asked Aniston. "I was too scared."
Visibly shocked (and understandably so), Aniston replied, "How doth you say this? You got scared?"
Laughing, her co-star replied, "Yeah, they asked me to come back and I was like, 'I'm too nervous.'"
