Jennifer Aniston has reaped praise on her ex-husband Brad Pitt.
The 52-year-old actress, who recently wrapped the long-awaited Friends Reunion special, described her former love as ‘wonderful’ in a gushing interview.
Jen, who played Rachel Green on the legendary sitcom for ten years, looked back on her time on the show alongside her co-stars Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox as they listed their favourite celebrity cameos down through the years.
While her co-stars named the likes of Robin Williams, Bruce Willis, Reece Witherspoon, and Paul Rudd, Jennifer insisted that her ex-husband Brad, 57, was a ‘wonderful’ addition to the show.
“Mr. Pitt was wonderful, he was fantastic,” the actress gushed.
The couple enjoyed a whirlwind romance during Jennifer’s time on friends and the lovebirds tied the knot in 2000.
One year into their marriage, Brad bagged an appearance on Friends Season 8 when he stole the limelight as Ross’s old friend, Will Colbert, who was the president of the “I Hate Rachel Green Club” in high school.
Naturally, as Brad and Jen were one of Hollywood’s biggest couples at the time, fans tuned in from all over the world to see the real-life couple bicker on-screen.
Sadly, just four years later, the couple called it quits on their love story after Brad fell head over heels for Angelina Jolie while filming Mr and Mrs Smith.
It comes as the long-awaited Friends reunion will finally air this week – 17 years after the beloved sit-com ended.
Jennifer alongside her cast members Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry are set to reunite for the epic one-off show.
Each main star is reportedly being paid between £1.7million and £2.1million for the hour-long reunion special, according to The Hollywood Reporter, with the show set to air in the UK this Thursday (May 27) on Sky One.
