Jennifer Aniston is getting emotional about the iconic show Friends as it marks its 30th anniversary.

During a chat with Quinta Brunson for Variety's Actors on Actors conversation, Aniston, now 55, was asked about the hit show turning 30 and how it feels to watch the show after the tragedy passing of her co-star Matthew Perry at 54 in October 2023.

When asked about these milestones, Aniston responded, "Oh God, don't make me cry!" in a clip shared on X (formerly known as Twitter). The beloved comedy series featured Aniston as Rachel Green, alongside Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe Buffay), David Schwimmer (Ross Geller), Courteney Cox (Monica Geller), Matthew Perry (Chandler Bing), and Matt LeBlanc (Joey Tribbiani) as they navigated life in New York City.

Quinta Brunson, the star of Abbott Elementary, quickly reassured Aniston, "I won't, we won't make each other cry." Aniston, trying to compose herself, agreed, "Okay." However, Brunson noticed the tears, adding, "But, you're already crying. Do you want a minute? We don't have to talk about [it]."

"Sorry, I just started thinking about..." Aniston began, needing a tissue. "It's happy tears," she insisted, trying to lighten the moment. "Okay, and we're back!"

Friends aired for 10 seasons from 1994 to 2004 and continues to attract new fans even decades later. Reflecting on the show's legacy, Aniston joked, "And I'm turning 30, what a coincidence!" Brunson humorously responded, "When you were a baby on that show you were so advanced... your fine motor skills were insane." Aniston replied, "Wasn't I? I was an old soul."

Brunson, recalling the show's impact, said, "That show premiered when I was five, and it continues to be one of the best television shows."

In October 2023, Aniston and the Friends cast released a heartfelt statement about Perry's death, shared exclusively with PEOPLE. "We are all so utterly devastated by the loss of Matthew. We were more than just cast mates. We are a family," the message read. "There is so much to say, but right now, we're going to take a moment to grieve and process this unfathomable loss."

Their statement continued, "In time, we will say more, as and when we can. For now, our thoughts and our love are with Matty's family, his friends, and everyone who loved him around the world."
