Jennifer Aniston Confirms That the Friends Theme Song Is Actually the Worst

There are certain things that will instantly make us think of Friends (lobsters, armadillos, anyone named Phoebe), but few things about the iconic sitcom are as memorable as its theme song, "I'll Be There For You" by The Rembrandts. While you might love the catchy, clap-filled opening, there are a few people who really can't stand it: the cast of Friends. While promoting her new movie Office Christmas Party on BBC's The One Show this week, Jennifer Aniston revealed that the cast is none too fond of the song. "No one was really a big fan of that theme song," she said while noticeably cringing. "We felt it was a little . . . dancing in a pond, dancing in a fountain . . . it felt odd, but we did it." Despite dropping that bombshell, Jennifer did note that she can't help but stop and watch the show when she's flicking through channels on TV, saying, "You get sucked into the nostalgia of it." Celebrities, they're just like us.
