A little too friendly?
That was the scene for Jennifer Aniston when she sought some impromptu hosting advice from her former Friends costar Matthew Perry in a funny new skit to promote her Wednesday gig as co-host of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
In the clip (watch it below), Aniston knocks Perry's door to get some tips from her former castmate, who also has co-hosted the show.
"We haven't actually seen each other in like a really long time, 8 years. ... You really should have called," said a nervous Perry, who looked on sheepishly as their mutual pal and former costar Courteney Cox emerges from his house after an obvious sleepover.

After turning 40 in January, Portia de Rossi says she's ready to embark on the next stage of her life.
"The trick for me turning 40 was to really evaluate what I wanna do with this next phase in my life," she explains on the set of her photo shoot for PEOPLE's Most Beautiful issue, on newsstands Friday.
While she may still be figuring out what's next, the Arrested Development actress knows what she won't be doing.
"The one thing I don't wanna do is chase what I looked like at 20," she says.

If you thought Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi's Beverly Hills home was impressive, have a look at their weekend place.
The couple's 26-acre ranch in Hidden Valley, Calif., north of Los Angeles, is the epitome of rustic elegance, pairing DeGeneres's notorious love of art and design with de Rossi's passion for horseback riding.
The property, featured in the May issue of Elle Decor out April 16, had fallen into disrepair. But in the four years since they bought it, DeGeneres and de Rossi have transformed it into a stunning showcase of art and design.

Though the day may be far off, Ellen DeGeneres can see herself and wife Portia de Rossi moving far away – to de Rossi's birthplace, Australia.
"I shouldn't put it out there," DeGeneres, 55, told a crowd in Melbourne, "but I can see us living here one day," reports Australia's News Limited.
"I've wanted to come to Australia for a long, long time, before meeting Portia," the talk-show host also said.

Do you think the koala knew who it was talking to?
During some downtime from her talk show, Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi jetted to Sydney, Australia, for a little R&R, and paid a visit to the city's Taronga Zoo.
While touring Friday, DeGeneres made nice with a koala sitting among some branches, flashing it her signature grin as de Rossi looked on.

Apparently birthdays and breakdancing go hand-in-hand for Justin Theroux.
After granting fiancée Jennifer Aniston her wish by spinning on the floor when she turned 43, he recently showed off his skills at a joint birthday bash for pals Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi. But this time, Julianne Hough, 24, gave the actor, 41, a run for his money.
"[They] decided to have a breakdancing break-off," DeGeneres said Thursday on Ellen. "So we wanted to roll the rug back so they could spin on the floor. And [Julianne] was wearing a skirt and goes, 'I need pants.' ... She and Justin Theroux had a huge dance-off. It was crazy. It was a really fun night. She's an amazing dancer."

A slam dunk for Twilight!
Robert Pattinson stepped out Sunday night to attend Emmy host Jimmy Kimmel's after party at Soho House in Los Angeles.
Joined by a male friend, Pattinson was dressed casually in a baseball cap and jacket, but every girl in the room was "trying to get his attention," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
Inside the star studded event, guests sipped on Don Julio margaritas and Bulleit Bourbon Old Fashioned cocktails and snacked on sliders from Umami Burger.
Samantha Ronson deejayed a set full of current hits and classic rock while nominees, winners and guests including Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi, Downton Abbey's Michelle Dockery, L.A. Laker Kobe Bryant and more enjoyed the evening.
"At one point Rob approached Kobe to say hi and tell him he was a big fan," the source adds. "Kobe said the same right back to him!"

There's plenty of fine art inside Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi's sweeping Beverly Hills home. But there are playful touches, too – like a glass Ping-Pong table in the entrance hall.
The couple invited Architectural Digest into the three-acre compound for this month's issue, and there's certainly plenty to see – a large painting by Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat and loads of other artworks; tables, chairs, blankets and rugs from various continents and centuries; shoe shelves filled with sneakers and stilettos; and a luxurious pool out back with sweeping views of Los Angeles.
DeGeneres is like a kid in a candy store when it comes to real estate and interior design.
