And when Ross (David Schwimmer), Rachel (Jennifer), Chandler (Matthew Perry), Monica, (Courteney Cox), Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow), and Joey (Matt LeBlanc) first burst onto our screens, we immediately fell in love.

Created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, the comedy follows a group of friends who live in the same New York apartment block as they together navigate through the turbulent years of their late twenties.

With ups and downs like Chandler and Joey’s bromance, not knowing if Ross and Rachel were on a break, Chandler relieving the pain of Monica’s sting on the beach, or their flourishing relationship…

We always enjoyed every single part of the character’s journey.

And we watched through our tears as the gang said their final goodbyes to the apartment we had all grown to know and love for the past decade.

As sad as it was, it was so beautiful to watch.

Monica and Chandler were starting a family, Phoebe was newly married, Rachel had a new job in Paris… As with a lot of friendships, the gang had grown apart and were embarking upon their separate journeys.

But, we always have Friends as a comfort series.

Talking to the Hollywood Reporter about previous years being subjected to whacky headlines in tabloid media, Jennifer stood up for many women around the world.

“Well, people certainly project onto you and all that,” Aniston began when talking about how she deals with people’s opinions, “but my job is to go, “Listen, I’ll show you what I’m capable of, and you decide if you want to subscribe,” she said.

“So, you disappear as much as you can, you have fun, you take on these weird roles, you don’t give a shit, you enjoy yourself, you remember that you have a gorgeous group of friends and your life is blessed and you do the best that you can,” she continued.

And then she opened up about a topic that a lot of people are always talking about…

Pregnancy.

“I used to take it all very personally — the pregnancy rumors and the whole “Oh, she chose career over kids” assumption.

“It’s like, “You have no clue what’s going with me personally, medically, why I can’t… can I have kids?” They don’t know anything, and it was really hurtful and just nasty,” she shared.

And then, the sensation said something that will ressinate with a lot of women out there, if not all women.

She said she just wants to:

“Own who I am, where I am, and just how long I’ve f***ing been here.”

Say it, girl.

And for all women out there, never feel any form of societal pressure to start a family if you don’t want to. You are where you’re supposed to be in your life, and if someone doesn’t like that, that’s on them.

We love you Aniston.
