Is Jennifer Aniston trying to do some damage control?
After rumors have been circulating that she has been feuding with The Morning Show costar, Reese Witherspoon, the Friends alum claimed that their onscreen fights are nothing but “fun.”
During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday, September 13, the 52-year-old actress seemed to tiptoe around speculation that she may be clashing with Witherspoon by insisting that it’s “hard” to act angry towards her pal while filming.
“It’s always fun to fight with Reese," she said of the Legally Blonde actress. “She’s such a sweet burst of sunshine that you know, she’s not someone you want to go scream your head off to.”
“I usually always end up bursting into laughter at some point,” she continued. “It’s just too hard to be like, mad with each other.”
The interview with Kimmel comes just days after the two actresses have been in the limelight for having some alleged tension between them.
As OK! previously reported, the cast of their hit Apple TV+ series posed together for photos at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles, Calif., but the Horrible Bosses actress was nowhere to be found.
Some assumed that her absence at the event may have had something to do with her reported rocky relationship with Witherspoon, who was present for all of the photos.
An insider previously told OK! that “there was some friction” between the two mega stars while on set of The Morning Show’s second season. The source also noted “some eye rolling and whispering going on” between the pair.
"They used to hang out when the cameras weren't rolling, but not now," the source added.
On Wednesday, September 8, Aniston and Witherspoon appeared on BBC’s The One Show, where Aniston seemed to be on edge.
Fans seem to notice the tension too, as one user wrote on Twitter, "Did anyone else catch Jennifer Anniston's negative reaction to the male presenter regarding the morning person bit? Awkward #theoneshow."
Another tweeted, "Jennifer Anniston's 'tude in this interview is cringe. She keeps on looking to the side. Awkward."
