She simply wished to be seen as a dramatic actor.
It is exhausting to call which Mates character is probably the most iconic, however the fact is just one impressed a generation-defining haircut. Sure, that is Jennifer Aniston’s Rachel.
There was some extent, although, when Aniston was so over being referred to as Rachel — and it occurred earlier than the present even ended.
She just lately mirrored on the second when she was making an attempt to pivot from TV to drama movies and recalled, “You simply exhaust your self. I imply, I couldn’t get Rachel Inexperienced off of my again for the lifetime of me.”
“I couldn’t escape ‘Rachel from Mates,’ and it is on on a regular basis and you are like, ‘Cease taking part in that fucking present!'” she stated in a roundtable for the Hollywood Reporter.
Fortunately for Rachel — I imply Jennifer Aniston — she did not have to attend too lengthy to department out: “The Good Lady was the primary time I acquired to essentially shed regardless of the Rachel character was, and to have the ability to disappear into somebody who wasn’t that was such a aid to me,” she stated of her 2002 movie. (Mates led to 2004.)
“When you play comedy, they do not suppose you are able to do the drama; and when you’re solely seen as a dramatic actor, they do not suppose you are able to do comedy,” she added. “They neglect that we’re actors and we even have all of it in there. It is nearly discovering it and accessing it and getting the fabric.”
Now that she’s made a profession out of doing each drama and comedy roles, although, she’s absolutely able to get again into Rachel Inexperienced’s head in an upcoming Mates particular on HBO Max (which hopefully will not be postponed an excessive amount of longer because of the coronavirus pandemic).
