Jennifer Aniston on how filming Friends Reunion made her emotional.
Jennifer Aniston, with the rest of Friends’ primary cast, got together for a reunion special episode for HBO Max earlier this year. While filming the nostalgia-filled episode, which was received extremely well by the sitcom’s fans, the actor was taken by surprise by the overall emotional impact and she even had to walk out several times.
While speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, she revealed the shoot’s emotional effect on her. She said, “And it just took me by surprise because it was like, “Hi, past, remember me? Remember how that sucked? You thought everything was in front of you and life was going to be just gorgeous and then you went through maybe the hardest time in your life? It was all very jarring and, of course, you’ve got cameras everywhere and I’m already a little emotionally accessible, I guess you could say, so I had to walk out at certain points. I don’t know how they cut around it.”
