Would hairstylists never have learned the Rachel?

In the early '90s, Lorne Michaels offered Jennifer Aniston a spot on Saturday Night Live, but the Just Go With It actress turned him down to work on Friends.

"They were like, 'You're so stupid,'" Aniston, 41, told Oprah Winfrey during Wednesday's episode. "They thought I was making a huge mistake."

"It did alright," she joked of the hit comedy that launched her career and eventually paid her $1 million per episode.

The star went on to say if she could go back in time and talk to her 20-year-old self, she'd say, "Enjoy it."

"No fretting," Aniston said. "This is a really wonderful thing we get to do. I'd say listen when people tell you how much joy you bring them."
