Mark Kirk Jennifer Aniston Photo: Illinois Senator Shares Adorable Message From A-List Actress (PHOTO)

After his heart-warming fist bump with President Obama at this year's State of the Union address, Illinois Senator Mark Kirk is having another feel-good Internet moment.

Sen. Kirk, who returned to Congress this January after recovering from a massive stroke, tweeted an snapshot of him smiling at a "get well soon" message from one of the most famous women in the world:

Though Hollywood stars and GOP members haven't always had the coziest of relationships, the senator has made no secret of his fondess for the former "Friends" star.

According to U.S. News And World Report survey in 2010, Kirk said his "favorite comedian is Sam Kinison and his favorite movie star is Jennifer Aniston."
