Jennifer Aniston honoured with Award

Actress Jennifer Aniston has bagged the People’s Icon Award at the 2019 E! People’s Choice Awards held on Sunday.

The 50-year-old actor stressed that if she deserves this ‘icon’ status it is only because she was able to do an iconic show ‘Friends’ with an iconic cast and iconic haircut.

Hollywood star Adam Sandler presented the award to Aniston as he described her as, “funny as hell, smart as hell, strong as hell,” to “a great green drink maker”.

In her acceptance speech, she further added that she couldn’t have earned the title of an icon without her fans and the still popular sitcom ‘Friends’.

Aniston said: “I mean, ‘Friends’ was truly the gift of a lifetime, and I would not be standing up here without that amazing show and those amazing five other actors and with an audience who stuck with us for a decade, and through streaming services now, and syndication, and I’m sure coming to a ‘watch soon’ near you or something.”


The actress also thanked the show’s fans for believing in the character’s “impossibly large apartments” and said that ‘Friends’ has ultimately “paved the way” for everything she’s accomplished in her career since.
