In having one of the characters answer that question, I chose Jennifer Aniston. There's no real reason. She just seemed like an actress most people probably don't look up to as their acting idol. I'm not mocking Jennifer Aniston. I have nothing against her. She simply popped into my head when I thought about actresses that people probably don't think of as their acting idols.
But it makes sense, in a way. If you grew up with Friends, and you're a big fan, you might think more of Jennifer Aniston as an actress than most people. I first learned about Alan Alda from M*A*S*H. He's done a lot since then, of course. And who knows. Maybe in 50 years, Jennifer Aniston will be universally admired for her work.
