Friends, truly the gift of a lifetime: Jennifer Aniston on winning People's Icon award
Aniston also thanked the cast of the much-loved sitcom — Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer
Jennifer Aniston was announced as the People's Icon of the year in the People's Choice Awards that was held in Santa Monica on Sunday.
Receiving the award from her Murder Mystery co-star Adam Sandler, Aniston said, "If I have any claim to this word 'icon,' it's only because I was able to be on an iconic show, with an iconic cast, and an iconic haircut. Friends was truly the gift of a lifetime, and I would not be standing up here without that amazing show, without those amazing five other actors, and with an audience who stuck with us... You believed in us, you really did, and you believed in those very impossibly large apartments."
Crediting Friends for her successful career, Aniston also thanked the cast of the much-loved sitcom — Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer.
Friends is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
