Just like their characters on the beloved sitcom, Friends, actress Jennifer Aniston will always be there for her former cast members.

In honor of Lisa Kudrow’s 60th birthday, The Morning Show actress, 54, posted a photo slideshow filled with throwback pics of the bday girl with the Friends cast. The birthday tribute post (shared on the actress’s Instagram account) begins with an old pic of Aniston and Kudrow posing for a “Got Milk?” advertisement they worked on in the ‘90s. 

Another rare throwback photo shows Aniston hugging her former co-star on a red floral velvet couch. The slideshow also includes a recent pic of the ladies posing with the rest of the cast for the Friends: The Reunion television special, which premiered on HBO Max in 2021.

Aniston dedicated a special bday message to Kudrow in the caption, which read, “Please join me in celebrating one of my favorite people on the planet. LISA KUDROW!! [birthday-themed emojis] She’s been my friend and my family for nearly 30 incredible years.”

She added, “I cherish you…I love you, my sweet Floosh. One of the most talented comedians/actors I’ve had the great honor to work with for all these glorious years and more to come! Happy Lisa’s Birthday!”

Aniston wasn’t the only Friends alum to wish Kudrow a happy birthday on social media. That same day, actress Courteney Cox shared a post of her own on IG, which featured a mix of old and new pics of her and Kudrow throughout the years. 

“Happy Birthday my Loot. This is my second attempt: ChatGPT didn’t give you nearly the amount of love I feel for you,” the Shining Vale star captioned the post. “You are the smartest, funniest, most thoughtful person. I always feel seen and loved when I’m around you. That’s the gift you give to those you love x.”

Cue the song “I’ll Be There for You” by The Rembrandts.
