Jennifer Aniston on The One Show

The One Show: Jennifer Aniston interview branded ‘awkward’ by fans

The Morning Show star didn't seem pleased to be there

| Updated:

Hollywood royalty appeared on The One Show last night (September 8) when Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston called in for a chat.

The former Friends star was appearing alongside the Big Little Lies actress to promote The Morning Show season 2.

However, it didn’t exactly go quite to plan.

Viewers were left baffled by how “awkward” the interview appeared to be, and Jennifer looked anything but pleased to be there.

Jennifer stars as Alex Levy, co-host of a popular breakfast news programme, who fights to maintain her spot as top news anchor amid a rivalry with Reese’s character, Bradley Jackson.

What did Jennifer Aniston say on The One Show?

Awkwardness ensued when The One Show host Jermaine Jenas asked Jen if she was a morning person.

Jennifer, who confessed she “hated” live TV, appeared to dodge the question, and Jermaine quickly turned to Reese for help.

He said: “Reese, I am going to be honest with you. Jennifer pretty much sold it to be that she is not a morning person, so I am going to ask you, are you a morning person?”

Jennifer then interrupted, saying: “Did I sell that to you?”

Jermaine replied: “A little bit…”

Viewers at home rushed to comment, with many confused by Jen’s seemingly standoff-ish attitude.

“We’re still all just getting over that moment of talking to Jennifer Aniston.”
