Jennifer Aniston has been friends with Sandra Bullock since the 1990s.

"Tonight I'm here to recognize my very good friend, my brother from another mother, extraordinary father, husband and one of the most loyal friends you could ever, ever have: The People's Icon, Adam Sandler!" the Lolavie haircare founder gushed.

The Big Daddy lead accidentally got up from his seat too early, prompting The Morning Show star to tell him to stay put for her speech.

"The Sandman. Who's more iconic that Adam Sandler? I don't remember a time when Adam wasn't a part of popular culture," she shared.

Aniston called his career one "that took the comedy box office by storm, and I was lucky enough to be in a few of [his movies]."

She also noted that he recently won the prestigious Mark Twain Award, quipping, "With all due respect, from Grown Ups to The Mark Twain Award. That's pretty iconic."

"In all of his extraordinary success, he has stuck to his roots. He's never strayed from the friends he's had for 35 years and counting," the Emmy nominee continued. "He created a world where he brings them into his movies, basically getting to hang with his buddies all day. And it doesn't hurt that his friends happen to be some of the most talented, hilarious writers and actors out there."
