Jennifer Aniston—who is still engaged, yes, but not pregnant, no (thank you for asking; it’s fine)—has a lot of friends. Friends who get Oscar nominations; friends who are her hairstylists; friends who proposed to her over two years ago but don’t seem to want to set a date; friends who were on Friends; friends who are so much younger than her it’s insane. One of those friends recently spoke to a radio station about her relationship with Jen.

That friend was none other than former Disney star Selena Gomez, who was born on July 22, 1992. Selena gushed about Jen in the interview, insisting, “She’s amazing.” She added,

...[W]e met through my management—they manage her as well—so it was kind of like a friendly meeting and instantly she’s, like, inviting me to her house. She has a pizza oven. Like, we’ve made pizzas at her house. She’s very cool and very sweet. She kind of gives me a lot of, like, maternal advice.

She’s amazing. She has a pizza oven. She’s childless; it’s true. She’s like a mother to me. Well, at 46, she’s older than my mother, who is 39. But she’s like a grandmother to me.

This isn’t the first time Selena has made her love of Jen known. When Jen’s unfortunately not-Oscar-nominated (but it was fine) film Cake came out last year, Selena posted a photo of the two of them on Instagram with the following caption:

I have not only been following her career as a fan since I was 8 and now get to watch her completely transform in her new movie CAKE, I have gotten to have real conversations with such a real heart, made my entire year.

Since she was eight! In the year 2000!

That is so nice and fine, my dear. I love your neat tattoo!
