‘Friends’: Why Jennifer Aniston Refuses to Renew Her Driver’s License This Year

The year 2020 is turning into a year that many would like to quickly forget.

For Friends star Jennifer Aniston, it’s no different. The star of the hit NBC comedy has, in her own way, drawn the line on the year that started out with so much promise.

Move on, 2020, just move on.

2020 has claimed the ‘Friends’ reunion indefinitely

The move this year of Friends to HBO Max was received with sighs of relief and shouts of joy. It was surpassed only by the announcement by the cable giant of a Friends reunion, the dream every fan of the iconic comedy had been holding out for.

Plans were made for the reunion to take place in front of a live audience in March 2020. Coronavirus (COVID-19) arrived and the reunion had to wait for the safety of all. It was rescheduled for May 2020 but once again had to be delayed for the same reason.

Speaking with Deadline in August 2020, Aniston, 51, refused to get down about it.

“It’s going to be super,” she said. “You know what? This has also given us more time to make it even more exciting and more fun than it would have been. So I choose to see it as the glass is half-full that it got postponed. Look, we’re not going anywhere. You’re never going to get rid of Friends, sorry. You’re stuck with us for life, guys.”

The ‘Friends’ star has no interest in getting a license this year

The Just Go With It star went on in her conversation to make clear that 2020 has been for her, the year of what could have been and wasn’t.

What Aniston is declaring it won’t be is the year of a renewed driver’s license for her. The actor, who portrayed Rachel Green on Friends, is doing what it takes to avoid seeing “2020” on her license.

“I’m supposed to renew my driver’s license and I don’t want it to say 2020 on it,” she told Deadline. “I just want to get 2020 out and behind us.”

Jennifer Aniston is encouraging fans to make their votes count this year

One thing the actor wants to be known for in 2020, however? Getting as many people to vote as possible.

She posted recently on Instagram, which she just joined in the last year, to support the #WomenSupportingWomen challenge.

Posting a black-and-white photo, Aniston wrote a heartfelt message for the women in her life – and urging her followers to vote.

“Thank you to all the brilliant and beautiful women in my life who sent the most uplifting messages today,” she said. “Truth be told, I don’t really understand this #challengeaccepted thing…but who doesn’t love good reason to support women!  Soooo…. challenge accepted! ⠀

“And while I have you here, maybe the best way we can support other women is to REGISTER TO VOTE for the issues that affect women. Encourage all your friends, girlfriends, sisters, moms, daughters to do the same.”

“The election is right around the corner,” she continued, “and we need to look out for each other AND love each other!”
