Jennifer Aniston got the opportunity of a lifetime when presenting with Carol Burnett at Sunday night’s Golden Globe awards.

Aniston gushed on stage with her “idol” and, with Burnett’s permission, the Friends alum tugged on Burnett’s ear in a nod to the legendary comedian’s signature sign-off.

“Kinky!” Burnett joked after the display, asking, “Was it everything you dreamed it would be?”

Aniston replied, “It was everything, everything, thank you.”

“As I said, she’s kinky!” Burnett said.
