Jennifer Aniston reflected on her incredible career as she took home the icon award at the People's Choice Awards on Sunday night. Following a heartwarming introduction from her Murder Mystery costar and friend Adam Sandler, the 50-year-old actress took to the stage to give an endearing speech. After cracking a few jokes, Aniston got serious for a moment as she reflected on one of her biggest roles to date: Rachel Green on Friends.

"If I have any claim to this word 'icon' it's because I was able to be on an iconic show . . . Friends was the gift of a lifetime," she told the crowd. Aniston went on to gush about her former costars before adding how grateful she is to be back on the small screen with Apple TV+ The Morning Show. Get a glimpse of her speech ahead.
