The comedic talents on display in Just Go with It nearly led Jennifer in a different career path. After Adam landed a job on Saturday Night Live at 23 years old, he says he wanted Jennifer to become a cast member with other young comedians like Chris Farley, David Spade and Rob Schneider. "I remember being on the ninth floor where [Saturday Night Live [creator] Lorne Michaels' office was, and seeing Jen come in," Adam says. "I was like, 'Oh, my God. There's Aniston. Is she about to be on our show?'"

Jennifer told Adam she was turning down an offer to be on Saturday Night Live. "It was a boys' club," Jennifer says. "They thought I was making a huge mistake."

Instead, Jennifer took a part on Friends. "Did alright," Jennifer says.

"People liked that one, yeah." Adam jokes.
