Selena Gomez is showing her love for Jennifer Aniston on Instagram. The Morning Show actress posted a makeup-free selfie to her account on Friday showing off a mug with the new series’ logo. Gomez commented, writing “Queen!”
Aniston recently broke Instagram when she joined the platform last month, causing the app to crash. She also broke the record for fastest account to hit 1 million followers, beating out Meghan Markle and Prince Harry with a time of five hours and 16 minutes. While she currently has amassed 19 million followers, she’s only following a mere 195 people, including Gomez.
The two women have a friendship that goes back years. In 2014, Gomez posted a photo of her and Aniston writing, “I have not only been following her career as a fan since I was 8 and now get to watch her completely transform in her new movie CAKE, I have gotten to have real conversations with such a real heart, made my entire year.”
Later that year, Aniston shared her love for Gomez in an interview saying, “We have the same manager. She’s just like a little cherub that I feel like I wanna take care of. And we’ve just met through our manager. She’s been extremely supportive and wonderful.”
Gomez has been a longtime fan of Aniston. When she was 16 she revealed that she got a little starstruck after running into her idol in a bathroom.
“I was shaking! I ran into Jennifer in the bathroom and she goes, ‘Hi!’ My legs started to shake and I ran. I didn’t know what to do because I freaked out,” she said. “I always say that I worship Rachel McAdams as a movie actress but for comedy—the whole reason I started my show and mannerisms, they were after Jennifer Aniston. It was so funny, they were playing clip reels of the work she’s done and I quoted the whole thing. Every single thing she’d say, I would say it. People were sitting there laughing at me and they’re like, ‘Wow, you’re obsessed.’”
