Jen's "The Morning Show" co-star, Reese Witherspoon, was one of the first to wish the actress a happy birthday.

The two have been friends for decades, having played sisters on Friends.

Another former co-star and pal of Aniston wished her well with this hilarious photo.

"No matter how hard you might try... there’s only one Jennifer Aniston. Happy birthday my dear friend @jenniferaniston! I love you!" Courteney Cox wrote on Instagram, along with three hearts.

Jen found their twinning moment especially hilarious:

"This is better than it should be. Good job," wrote actor, David Spade.

"Hella cute," chimed in Mindy Kaling.

As part of her birthday, Jen was interviewed by "Interview Magazine" by fellow A-lister and friend, Sandra Bullock.

As a nod to Jen's Friends days, the article was appropriately titled The One Where Jennifer Aniston Gets Grilled by Sandra Bullock.

Because if anyone else understands the pressures that come with being a '90s star in the public eye, it's definitely Sandra Bullock.

The interview with the two celebs began with them telling the story of how they first met.

"We were trying to remember how we first met, and you and I had completely different memories," Bullock said, as Aniston replied, "Let's journey back. I'm trying to remember the year of the Golden Globes, at that little restaurant. CAA always had that party."

Bullock confirmed this, then said, "and we were introduced by our former boyfriend. I say 'our' because you and I both partook of this one human being."

"Yes, we did. That's a beautiful way of saying it," Aniston replied.

"We both partook of Tate [Donovan]," Bullock said, causing Aniston to reiterate, "We both partook of Tate."

"Friends" fans will remember Tate as the actor who played Joshua (not Josh), Rachel's boyfriend on the series.

In real life, the pair dated for three years, beginning in 1995.

Awkwardly, though, they broke up right around the time Tate had been cast to play Jennifer's love interest on Friends.

"It was just six episodes. I mean, only because we were breaking up. We were like, 'Hey, can we not keep doing this? 'Cause this is really painful and tough,'" he recalled to Us Weekly.

As for Bullock, she dated "The OC" alum before Aniston did.

They were even engaged from 1992 until 1995, after meeting on the set of their 1992 comedy Love Potion No. 9.

Dating the same guy has clearly bonded these stars for life, as they proceeded to gush about each other during the interview.

"I was trying to think of my first impression of you, and, like almost everyone’s first impression of you, it was on the television," said Bullock.

"And I was trying to remember if that was the person who I got to meet. I remember the first thing I thought of you was, 'A beautiful woman who has extraordinary timing is almost impossible to find.'"

"You allowed yourself to look foolish, heartbroken, clumsy, like an idiot. I think that’s why everyone feels so comfortable in your presence," she said.

"You said, “Yeah, I might look like this, but guess what? I have the same failings and insecurities you do.” I remember thinking, “God, I hope she’s really like that. If she’s not, I’m going to be so bummed.”

Thankfully, Jen is like that in real life and, fortunately and unfortunately, a lot of it is due to her parents' shortcomings.

"I think that it comes from growing up in a household that was destabilized and felt unsafe, watching adults being unkind to each other, and witnessing certain things about human behavior that made me think: 'I don’t want to do that. I don’t want to be that. I don’t want to experience this feeling I’m having in my body right now.'"

She continued: "I don’t want anyone else that I ever come in contact with ever to feel that.” So I guess I have my parents to thank. You can either be angry or be a martyr, or you can say, 'You’ve got lemons? Let’s make lemonade.'"
