Mayim Bialik’s Glorious #TBT Features Jennifer Aniston Pre-Friends!


Blossom and Rachel Green! Mayim Bialik just shut down the Instagram game. The Big Bang Theory actress posted an amazing throwback photo of herself and Jennifer Aniston on Thursday, Dec. 3.

"Yes this is me and Jennifer Aniston in my childhood bedroom," Bialik, now 39, captioned the grainy snapshot. "We did a show together before I did 'Blossom.' #tbt!!!"

In the pic, Bialik and Justin Theroux's wife, now 46, smiled big and gave each other a sweet hug. They were roughly 14 and 21 years old, respectively, at the time.

The glorious moment happened five years before Aniston's Friends fame. The two co-starred in the short-lived 1990 comedy series Molloy, which also featured Luke Edwards, Turner & Hooch's Kevin Scannell, and Pamela Brull.

Bialik also posted a photo from the set via Twitter in February 2014. "For #tbt here's another of me & jennifer aniston from 'molloy,'" she wrote at the time. "You can tell how much she liked me, right?! heehee."

Molloy was Aniston's first TV gig, and followed Bialik's starring role in the 1990 movie Blossom. (The TV show of the same name aired from 1990 to 1995.) Molloy only lasted seven episodes.
