Jennifer Aniston got emotional during a conversation with Quinta Brunson about the 30th anniversary of "Friends."

"Sorry, I just started thinking about … I'm OK, these are happy tears," Aniston said after grabbing a tissue from a producer.

The conversation comes months after her "Friends" co-star Matthew Perry's death in October.

"It's so strange to think that it's even 30 years old. I remember the day it was going to premiere on television on NBC ... the excitement we had, it feels like yesterday," Aniston continued. "The fact that it's had this long, wonderful life and it still means a lot to people is one of the greatest gifts. All six of us. We never could imagine."
