Jennifer Aniston is enjoying her holiday time with close friends, and even though they aren't the usual cast everyone expected, Aniston still has some serious star power in her inner circle. The "Friends" star took to Instagram on Monday and posted a photo of some of her besties, including Laura Dern, Rita Wilson and celebrity hairstylist Chris McMillan.
"Say CHEESE!! 🥂🍾❤️ Lotta love in that room ☺️ Happy Holidays!" she captioned the warm photo.
Being a part of Aniston's holiday pic definitely caused a stir in Hollywood among stars who didn't quite make the cut.
David Spade was one such star who sent a little reminder that he was left out.
"I guess I was in the kitchen getting more chili during the photo shoot," the comedian commented.
He followed up that, "Jan [sic] I’m actually still in the house. I couldn’t find my way out. So embarrassing . I’m in sector 42J. I’m walking north try to find me."
Chris McMillan, who actually was part of the picture, responded that "♥️ was definitely going on. ALWAYS the party of the year. MERRY MERRY!!!!!"
Coveted Holiday Parties
The gathering with Jen and her friends is just another example of her exclusive gatherings that regularly feature big-time celebrities. Back in November, the "Friends" star hosted her annual Friendsgiving dinner, which takes place the night before the actual Thanksgiving feast. Jimmy Kimmel is a regular at Aniston's Friendsgiving, and he got a special surprise after roasting her on national TV.
Kimmel brought Aniston on his late-night show and claimed she was ruining his own Thanksgiving by serving turkey and other traditional dishes the night before he serves the same thing. After hashing it out, Aniston surprised the talk show host with a plate of delicious enchiladas this year. He was very excited.
What About Brad?
With so much talk about who Jen is hanging out with these days, naturally, Brad Pitt has been worked into the mix. In fact, the "Once Upon a Time In Hollywood" star attended Aniston's holiday party a few weeks back.
Ellen DeGeneres, Gwyneth Paltrow, Netflix chief Ted Sarandos and Courteney Cox were some of the other stars who attended, although there were no photos of Pitt and Aniston together that went public.
Many fans have been hoping that they get back together following Pitt's divorce with Angelina Jolie, however the two stars insist they are going to remain friends.
