She plays a morning talk show host on Apple TV’s The Morning Show, so taking over as host of a daytime talk show should be a piece of cake for Jennifer Aniston, right?. The A-list actress nailed it when she filled in for her good friend Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, while Ellen was out taking care of some errands.
“Ellen asked me to host during my interview with her a couple of months ago,” Jennifer revealed. “So of course I said yes because we’re friends. I mean I hadn’t won my SAG award yet so…”
While Ellen was off at the DMV getting her driver’s license renewed, Jennifer was trusted with the reigns of her show. And she did the gig justice. Not only did Jen interview some celebs and invite the whole audience to come back for Ellen’s 12 Days of Giveaways, Jennifer set up the best prank yet. Best known for her role as Rachel on Friends, Jen went back to the old set on the Warner Brothers lot (where Ellen is filmed) and gave some Friends fans the shock of their lives.
The best part was when fans were asked who their favorite friend was, no one said Rachel. That attitude quickly changed with Jennifer popped up from behind the Central Perk couch. “I was gonna say you,” yelled one fan. Right!
Fans couldn’t control their screams as Rachel was actually in the coffee shop they made so famous. What started out as an ordinary tour of the WB lot and Friends set, turned into the memory of a lifetime.
