'The Morning Show': Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon have been FRIENDS for decades
The two have reunited again on Apple Tv+'s 'The Morning Show', where Aniston plays Alex Levy and Witherspoon plays her news co-anchor
'Friends' is a timeless show that was not only enjoyed when it came out but has been on loop for many fans even after it ended. Jennifer Aniston rose to fame as Rachel, and Reese Witherspoon played her sister Jill Green. The two actresses have reunited again on Apple Tv+'s 'The Morning Show', where Aniston plays Alex Levy and Witherspoon plays her relatively new morning news co-anchor.
Aniston previously opened up about working with Witherspoon after being real-life friends for more than two decades, saying it's "hard" to fake being mad at her on the show. The duo share a friendship that predates 'The Morning Show' by decades.
While they may play frenemies on the hit Apple TV series, Aniston and Witherspoon are as close as it gets. In the years since Witherspoon's short stint as Jill, she and Aniston sparked a long-lasting frienship instantly.
When Natalie Portman interviewed Witherspoon in Harper's BAZAAR's Daring issue about her friendship with Aniston before they started working on 'The Morning Show', she replied, “We met on the set of Friends, where I had the role of her sister. I was 23 years old and had recently given birth to my first child.” Talking about Jennifer, Witherspoon said, “She was incredibly nice to me. ‘Oh, my gosh—don’t worry about it!’ she said when I was nervous. I was astounded by her ability to play so confidently in front of a live audience.”
Witherspoon had an instant connection with Jennifer and admitted to being friends with her since then.
Though they are frenemies on the new show, Aniston confessed how difficult it was to pretend to be upset with Witherspoon onscreen. While appearing on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' on Monday, the actress discussed season 2 of 'The Morning Show' and said, "It's always fun to fight with Reese, because she's such a sweet burst of sunshine that she's, you know, not someone you wanna go scream your head off to. And I usually always end up bursting into laughter at some point. It's just too hard to be that mad with each other. But we do it."
The 'Murder Mystery' actress recently posted a beind-the-scenes of 'The Morning Show' on Instagram that showed the amazing chemistry between them. In the video, Aniston says to her co-actor, "Reese, be my Valentine." Reese blows her a kiss in return.
Fans have since then commented on their picture together calling them "Beautiful Sisters". In the word's of Aniston, Reese is her little sister, co-anchor, and her partner in crime.
