25 years of “Friends”: the day Winona Ryder kissed Jennifer Aniston

In one of the episodes of the series, Winona participated as a guest star and starred in a memorable scene with Jennifer, whom she defined as a very good “kisser”.

In the decade it was broadcast on television, Friends became the favorite program of millions of viewers around the world, who enjoyed the performances of its protagonists and also the occasional appearance of Hollywood stars, such as Winona . Ryder, who starred in a memorable scene in which he kissed Jennifer Aniston.

Seeing two celebrities kissing meant a big shock at the start of this century, but Winona was very disappointed with the outcome of the scene, the Beetlejuice actress explained in an interview with Wenn.

She said she was upset because viewers missed all the real passion the chapter should have.

“When I saw the episode, all you see is the hair and you don’t see the lips. I was a bit put off because we had a few opportunities for some really nice kisses. (Jennifer ) She’s a really good kisser,” the actress explained.

The protagonist of Stranger Things was a guest in episode 20 of season seven, where she played Melissa Warburton.

The chapter, titled “Rachel’s Big Kiss”, tells how Rachel meets Melissa (Winona Ryder) one of her friends in the famous cafeteria in Central Park. Both studied together in college and in the plot, they meet for dinner and reminisce about the good old days.

What her friends discover is that Rachel and Melissa had a little romance at the time, as Rachel tells Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow).

Her friend does not believe her and Rachel asks her to accompany her to dinner so that Melissa herself can tell her about the kiss they had in college.

Back at the restaurant, Rachel tries to remind her friend of their kiss and that they were wearing a coconut bathing suit, which Melissa, at first, says seems really weird, as she doesn’t remember anything.

After the whole dinner party denies the kissing affair, Rachel kisses him and only then does Melissa admit that she remembers everything about her and has dreamed of her ever since. Rachel doesn’t know what to say, and Melissa ends up bragging that it was all a joke and leaves.

In the last scene of the chapter, Phoebe kisses Rachel on the mouth and says she is doing nothing wrong, much to Rachel’s amazement.

The legendary series premiered on September 22, 1994, and in a decade of broadcasts, its protagonists have gone from unknowns to global stars.

Friends ceased broadcasting on May 6, 2004, and the careers of its members have not been the same.

Who undoubtedly remains one of the Hollywood figures is Jennifer Aniston, who turned 50 last February.

Courteney Cox turned 55 in June and to celebrate she was joined by Aniston herself and Lisa Kudrow.

“How lucky I am to celebrate my birthday with them. Love you girls. Very much,” the actress wrote alongside the image she shared with her millions of followers on her Instagram.

More than 1 million “likes” were captured in a few hours. Aniston’s ex, Justin Theroux, was one of many celebs who messaged Cox on her birthday.

Lisa Kudrow also shared a photo with the birthday girl with the caption, “Remember Court, I’ll always be older than you. Happy birthday beautiful Courteney.”

Cox, for her part, replied, “You only get wiser, sweetheart. Never older. I love you.”
