Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon recently appeared on a British show and things didn’t well smoothly for them, especially Aniston. The host Jermaine Jenas interrupted Aniston several times during a BBC Interview.
The former “Friends” star was on “The One Show” on Wednesday along with Reese Witherspoon for an interview for BBC. The promotional interview for the launch of Season 2 of “The Morning Show” went in another direction altogether.
Both the actresses were on video conferencing in the show, and this interview went viral on social media. The fans of Aniston were upset by the behavior of the 38-year-old English television presenter Jenas.
The Banter on the BBC Interview
“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.
“I got there at 5 in the morning and the hallways were quiet and people are just slowly waking up, and then all of a sudden, the train starts moving and it gets crazier and crazier. It’s utter chaos” the “Bruce Almighty” star continued.
Jenas interrupted Aniston to ask Witherspoon if she was 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,” Jenas commented. Aniston was not happy with the comment and she snapped back, “Did I sell that to you?”
The banter went on when Jenas responded, “A little bit, a little bit.” Aniston definitely did not make former English soccer player Jenas one of her “friends” during the interview.
“Did I get a good deal?” the 52-year-old Aniston was quick to respond. At this point, Jenas laughed awkwardly and tried to steer the conversation towards Witherspoon again. “So, what about you, Reese?” he asked the 45-year-old Witherspoon.
The good part about the show was that Witherspoon tried to strike a balance during the interview to mask the awkwardness. “No, I’m definitely a morning person. Jen and I talk about this all the time. I’m the morning person and she’s more of a night person” replied Witherspoon candidly.
Witherspoon further added, “So, it actually works out because I do kind of the early morning scenes, and then by 4 o’clock I’m toast, and then Jen starts around 11 and 12, and then she can do the night scenes because I can’t even think straight past 4 p.m.”
The reaction of YouTube and Twitter Fans
Quickly the fans took to Twitter and one fan commented, “Just had the unfortunate experience of seeing the amazing Reese Witherspoon & Jennifer Aniston being interviewed by Jermaine Jenas. Tripping over his words and interrupting them. Get the man off prime time tv. He’s a below average football pundit at best.”
Even on YouTube, one fan wrote, “It wasn’t cringe at all. Talk about “manufacturing” controversy at that awful Page Six. It was pretty apparent Aniston had just woken up and sounded a little blurry while Witherspoon was bright and cheerful. They both agreed that Aniston was a night person while Witherspoon was a morning person.”
