The former Friends star appears with the Pretty Woman actress in comedy movie Mother's Day, which follows several intersecting stories about different mums on the special occasion. While both women are admired by many and are good pals in real life, Jennifer admits she felt rather intimidated acting alongside Julia due to being such a fan of the Oscar-winner.
The former Friends actress no longer feels pressured to take on so many projects, revealing that when she was younger she worked and worked. But these days has been cutting back more, and that includes saying no to projects she doesn't believe in.
