Who is Jennifer if not a constant, adoring presence in all our lives?

The two previously co-starred in the 2016 movie Office Christmas Party.

In a new cover profile for InStyle, Jennifer revealed that her first reaction to the impression was that she's "not impression [-worthy]."

She continued, "They played it for me and [gasps], 'That is so not the way I sound.' Then I was like, 'Uh, oh. Oh, I see.'"

"Everyone said it was a compliment, but I had to really get my brain around that and tuck my little tail between my legs, thinking I'm being made fun of," Jennifer shared. "That's always the gut instinct: 'They're making fun of me.'"

Vanessa did the impression back in 2015 while on Jimmy Kimmel Live! She channeled Jennifer's character Rachel on Friends, and reenacted how the core group typically interacted with newcomers.

But all's well that ends well! Jennifer eventually made peace with it and later even joined Vanessa on an episode of SNL in 2016.
