The idea of the actress then was not supported by her former producer.
"The director immediately told me that I would only be in three episodes. And so, when we shot everything, I started getting calls from my friends asking me to help them get into the role of Rachel instead of me. I thought, "What?" And I made a fateful decision. I asked the producer if I could stay and continue playing the role of Rachel Green. He said yes," Aniston shared.
"He said he had seen the show and thought it wouldn't make me a star. But he was wrong."
The role of Rachel Green in the TV series "Friends" really brought Aniston worldwide fame. According to the actress, the project became a hit immediately after its first launch. She added that she did not regret her decision to stay on the show and not even believe that she once wanted to leave.
