Any idea which star turned down being a 'SNL' cast member to be on 'Friends'?

To say "Saturday Night Live" is the mecca of comedy is a tremendous understatement.

Many say it's comedy boot camp, while others say it's what a comedian works towards their entire life. Any way you slice it, "Saturday Night Live" is legendary for producing the top minds in comedy. However, trying to choose a favorite cast member, or even season, is a pretty difficult task.

It's hard to say, which season is best, because let's face it, they all had moments that made us laugh our butts off! However, if we had to choose, some of our favorite were definitely the early '90s, a la Adam Sandler, Chris Farley, and Mike Meyers. Classic sketches from these guys have sustained the test of time, forever proving how funny they truly were.

But, in a fun twist, we found out a "Friends" star who was almost a "Saturday Night Live" cast member! Back in 2011, Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston sat down with Oprah to talk about their new movie, "Just Go With It," when Sandler revealed Jen actually turned down the offer to be a cast member! Check it out at the 7:40 mark below.

Needless to say, "Friends" wasn't a bad choice after all.
