Can you imagine having a cringeworthy moment live on television? Jennifer Aniston was able to navigate an awkward situation with a television host.
On Wednesday (Sept. 8), Aniston and Reese Witherspoon appeared on The One Show to promote Season 2 of the Apple TV+ series, The Morning Show. Aniston was discussing what it was like to film in the early hours of the morning before the sun came up before being interrupted.
“I learned the slow burn that it is. It’s a very vampire state of life and mind that you guys live in. Everybody comes alive in the middle of the night, and it’s a slow-moving train,” Aniston said.
The Friends alum explained that she arrived on set at 5 A.M. and that everyone would just be slowly waking up. After a while on set, “all of a sudden, the train starts moving and it gets crazier and crazier. It’s utter chaos,” Aniston shared, before being interrupted by the show’s host Jermaine Jenas who insinuated that she isn’t a morning person.
“Reese, I’ve got to be honest with you, Jennifer’s pretty much sold it to me that she’s not a morning person,” he said. After his remark, Aniston appeared stunned and shocked.
“Did I sell that to you?'” Aniston awkwardly asked. “A little bit, a little bit,” he responded before Aniston added, “Did I get a good deal?”
The reporter then awkwardly laughed and asked Witherspoon if she enjoyed getting up early.
“I’m definitely a morning person,” Witherspoon shared. “Jen and I talk about this all the time. I’m the morning person and she’s more of a night person.”
The Legally Blonde star said that it works out because she does the early scenes and then is finished by 4 P.M. while Aniston can do the night scenes.
Social media was divided when it comes to determining if Jenas’ comment and the whole interaction was rude or not, although almost everyone can agree that the moment was awkward.
