When it came to her “Friends” wardrobe, Jennifer Aniston was often “the one with the tight tops.”
But looking back, the 52-year-old actress says that the body-hugging styles she wore on the beloved sitcom were simply her personal preference.
“No one was saying, ‘Girls, your outfits need to be tighter and smaller and skimpier.’ Absolutely no way,” Aniston explained on SiriusXM’s “The Howard Stern Show” recently.
“It was just sort of what we felt comfortable in,” she added.
While playing fashion-forward city girl Rachel Green, Aniston frequently reached for ‘90s classics like tiny turtlenecks and crop tops. She often selected skin-baring styles, with pleated miniskirts and sheer tights both serving as wardrobe staples.
As for whether the star ditched her bra while shooting the show, as many have speculated?
The Emmy winner stayed tight-lipped on the subject, quipping, “That was a topic of conversation.”
Aniston’s co-star Lisa Kudrow, who often wore flowy fashions as the free-spirited Phoebe Buffay, also discussed her character’s style choices with Stern.
She recalled one look with particularly oversized sleeves, saying she felt like she “enveloped” the other cast members when she hugged them for a scene.
“I felt like this mountainous thing that swallowed them alive,” she said of the look.
She also opened up about being slightly curvier than Aniston and co-star Courteney Cox, admitting that “fittings were not fun.”
“It’s not that I felt horrible around them,” Kudrow explained. “I have a different body type. I’m just bigger and sometimes the clothes, when I’d see the show, were so sort of full of volume.”
While Kudrow, 57, sported a burnt orange jumpsuit for “Carpool Karaoke,” Aniston’s sleeveless turtleneck was quintessentially Rachel Green.
