Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon? Sign us in! While none of us knew this was a pair we absolutely needed we just can't complain about them working together since it is a complete delight to see them together.

In a recent interview with People Tv show, the American actress Reese Witherspoon revealed that she can't contain herself and starts laughing every time Jennifer Aniston is near her. Both actresses are working together on Apple TV+'s The Morning Show where Jen plays Alex Levy, co-host of UBA's The Morning Show and Resse plays Bradley Jackson, a local news field reporter turned TMS co-host. In case you have not watched it, the first season premiered back in 2019 and it has been announced that a second season has been released this year.


Reese Witherspoon has revealed that despite their characters are always arguing, in real life, they are completely the opposite. "I have to say, when we do our fighting scenes, it's really hard not to laugh and crack up, because we have to be so mean to each other," Reese said. "We just love each other much." Reese also complimented Aniston, saying that "She's literally one of the funniest people I've ever met," Witherspoon admitted. "Her delivery is perfect on every joke."


Resse, who has been involved in The Morning Show since its beginning, declared that it has been a total honor and a dream come true to be working with Jennifer Aniston. “We'd been looking for a project to collaborate on for years and years, so when this came about, it was perfect."


This is not the first time Resse talks about Aniston. Back in 2019, she revealed in an interview the first time they met. "We met on the set of Friends; I played her sister. I was 23 years old and had just had a baby," Witherspoon said at the time. "I was nursing Ava on set, and Jen just kept going, 'You have a baby?' I was like, 'I know, it's weird.' ... I remember her being like, 'Where are you going?' And I was like, 'I'm pumping!'"

Witherspoon added that Aniston was "so sweet to me." "I was really nervous, and she was like, 'Oh, my gosh...don't worry about it!' I marveled at her ability to perform in front of a live audience like that with no nerves. They would change all the lines and she was just so effortlessly affable, bubbly, and sunny. ... We've been friends ever since."

Could this mean that Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon have become friendship goals? Absolutely! Recently, Jen declared similar sentiments towards her co-star in a recent appearance with Jimmy Kimmel. "It's always fun to fight with Reese," she said.

"Because she's such a sweet burst of sunshine that she's, you know, not someone you wanna go scream your head off to. And I usually always end up bursting into laughter at some point. It's just too hard to be that mad with each other. But we do it." "I guess that's acting, huh?" said Kimmel, to which Aniston responded, "Yeah, that's what we do."

Alongside Jennifer and Reese, the cast includes Steve Carell, Billy Crudup, Mark Duplass, Nestor Carbonell, Karen Pittman, Bel Powley, Desean Terry, Janina Gavankar, Tom Irwin, and Marcia Gay Harden. Greta Lee, Ruairi O'Connor, Hasan Minhaj, Holland Taylor, Tara Karsian, Valeria Golino, and Julianna Margulies all join for the second season.
