To celebrate the Friends 25th anniversary celebrations, actor Cali Sheldon has shared a couple of rare behind-the-scenes photos of Jennifer Aniston.

There’s been a lotta Friends content kicking around recently. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that the 90s sitcom is celebrating its 25th anniversary. 

As part of the celebrations, we’ve seen Ralph Lauren launch a special Rachel Green collection. Google also paid tribute with interactive character icons, which included Ross Gellar’s classic “PIVOT!” moment. And special Friends screenings have taken place around the country. 

Just when we thought we’d covered every Friends fact, photo and think-piece that’s out there, the TV gods have given us a final little memory to treasure.

Baby Emma was played by Cali Sheldon and her sister Noelle in the show. Emma was, of course, the child of Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston) and Ross Gellar (David Schwimmer).

To mark the celebrations, Cali has now shared a couple of rare behind-the-scenes photos taken with her on-screen mum. One of the photos also features her on-screen aunts Monica Gellar (Courteney Cox) and Phoebe Buffet (Lisa Kudrow).

The first photo shows Cali as Emma at her birthday party, with the three other actors posing for the camera. She captioned it: “The one where it all began…. #friends25.”

The second photo shows Aniston holding Cali while smiling at the camera. It is captioned: “Mom 🥰 (pt 2) #friends25.”

In case you want a reason to feel old (sorry!), the twins are now 17 years old and continue to work in the film and TV industry. The photos are a sweet ribute and show the genuine bond that the stars had on set. 

Friends celebrated its official 25th birthday last week.

The leading stars also shared their tributes last week, with Cox uploading one of the original promo shots and captioning it: “Celebrating a Thursday night 25 years ago. Thank you to all of our loyal fans across the world. You’ve certainly been there for us!”

Kudrow added: “Celebrating a Thursday night 25 years ago.We might be in different places but we are connected. #STILLTHEREFORYOU #FRIENDS #friends25thanniversary.”

Kudrow also called for Aniston to create an Instagram account, adding the hashtag: #COMEONALREADYJEN.” 

Although we’ve loved looking back at one of the most beloved TV shows, this seems like the perfect moment to end with… until the next anniversary!
