"The funny storyline was that I started dating Ross because she and Ross were ‘on a break,'" she said, referring to how her character, Jill Green, falls for Ross (played by David Schwimmer). "And [Rachel] was – gets really jealous and she's like ‘You can’t date Ross.' And I was like ‘I can’t? The only thing I can't have is dairy."
"I still remember the line," she quipped. "Their writing was so good on that show, so it's really memorable … I have all sorts of funny, famous Friends lines that are stuck in my head. Don't y'all?"
"I was terrified, but Aniston was so sweet to me. She was like, ‘They don’t care if you mess up. They actually like it better when you mess up,'" the blonde beauty said.
Witherspoon also recalled what it was like what she first walked into the famous coffee shop.
"Walking into Central Perk, that main coffee place, and sitting on the couch, I was like ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe this is happening. Oh my God, there's Joey. Oh my God,'" she stated.
