Singer and actor Selena Gomez often talked about how she idolized superstar Jennifer Aniston, who played the iconic role of Rachel in the famous TV series Friends.

The singer also confessed in the video that it was Jennifer Aniston who supported her during her darkest hours and Jenny’s wise words and maternal advice helped her heal from inside.
If you are wondering how Jennifer helped Selena overcome something which even rehabilitation failed to do, it was simple but powerful advice—the Friends actress told Selena to learn how to love herself without a man.
