In Hollywood, real friendship may be hard to come by. Yet the lasting bond formed between Jennifer Aniston and Selena Gomez seems to contradict that. The Friends star visited Gomez, who has been going through a devastating point in her life, at the female-only retreat/rehabilitation centre where the singer checked in.
As a patient, Gomez is allowed only a certain number of visitors each day. An insider account revealed how pleasantly surprised she was when Aniston showed up. Gomez appreciated her friend’s show of support.
Nothing like a friend’s sweet gesture and humor to ease anxiety and depression. These were some of the twin effects of lupus, an autoimmune disease that afflicted Gomez in 2015.
The post generated lots of reactions from her followers, who described the throwback photo of Selena Gomez and Jennifer Aniston as “beautiful,” “awesome,” and even “perfection. Some of her Instagram followers reminded Gomez that she was loved by many.
The two popularities became close after meeting at a party in late 2014. Months ago, Gomez even greeted Aniston happy birthday through social media. As the songstress wrote on her Instagram page, she considers Aniston “one of the kindest people” she knows and someone who has served as her inspiration for years.
A year after the release of her second studio album Revival, the Good For You singer has chosen not to let illness nor negativity beat her. She even proceeded to embark on a concert tour that brought her to different countries, including Malaysia and the Philippines.
Unfortunately, when panic attacks and anxiety crept in, the singer had to cancel the rest of her world tour. An eyewitness account showed snaps of the actress in a group outing looking around at food stalls.
Gomez, 24, has come a long way from her Barney and Friends and Wizards of Waverly Place days. She has successfully transitioned from being a recording artist to a film actress. That is the similarity between Jennifer Aniston and Selena Gomez. In her case, Aniston has successfully transitioned from television to film. Gomez has not had a really big film project she can call her own, but her success as a solo musician has been phenomenal.
