Jennifer Aniston Reveals Sweet Gesture from Longtime Friend Adam Sandler: Sending Flowers Each Mother’s Day

Jennifer Aniston, 54, and Adam Sandler, 56, have been close friends for a long time and it really shows, whether they are on or off screen together. And now we have another piece of evidence. While sitting down with The Wall Street Journal for an exclusive interview, The Morning Show star revealed the one thing her dear friend does for her every year: He sends a bouquet of flowers.

Last year, Aniston really opened up about her IVF journey and how she has struggled to have a child over the years. And after making the decision to tell her story to the world, the Friends actress has received an outpouring of support from fans, who have praised her for discussing a topic that is often labeled as taboo or private.

While chatting with WSJ, Aniston candidly shared that the Happy Gilmore actor and his wife, Jackie Sandler, have really been there for her during her difficult journey with IVF. And the beautiful way they have shown their love and support is by sending her an assortment of flowers every year on Mother’s Day.

While the Murder Mystery star is content with not having children, there is still an area of her life that she says still struggles with: relationships. Back in 2018, Aniston divorced her husband of three years, Justin Theroux. And since then, relationships are still something that dont’t come easy to her.

“It was always a little bit difficult for me in relationships, I think, because I really was kind of alone. I don’t know,” the actress told WSJ. “My parents, watching my family’s relationship, didn’t make me kind of go, ‘Oh, I can’t wait to do that.’”

“I didn’t like the idea of sacrificing who you were or what you needed, so I didn’t really know how to do that,” Aniston continued. “So it was almost easier to just be kind of solo. So I didn’t have any real training in that give-and-take.”
