Jennifer Aniston was last seen in The Morning Show and recently bagged a nomination for the lead actress at the Emmy Awards 2020. The Friends actress played the role of Alex Levy who is a celebrity journalist and does a primetime show on one of the leading channels in the world.
Along with Jen, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell also plays a pivotal role in the show. The show is critically acclaimed and showcases the harsh reality of what goes on behind the camera in big news channels.
In a conversation with Los Angeles Times, Jennifer Aniston spoke how playing Alex Levy was so relatable to her in her real life.
That show was 20 years of therapy wrapped into 10 episodes. There were times when I would read a scene and feel like a whole manhole cover was taken off my back,” said the Friends actress.
Jen reveals how doing The Morning Show was ‘Cathartic’ and said, “Cathartic, yes, and also interesting for me to look at how I always have tried to normalize being fine and ‘everything’s great, you know, this is all normal,’ and then there are moments when you have your private breakdown or your ‘Calgon, take me away’ moments.”
Aniston further added, “To actually look at it from an actor brain observing it and acknowledging it, I had to look at it as opposed to pretending it doesn’t exist.”
Jennifer Aniston adds, “There have been moments — not to that level of hysteria — but moments of ‘I don’t want to f—ing go here,’ ‘I don’t want to walk out onto the carpet,’ ‘I don’t want to be seen,’ ‘I don’t want to be looked at and everyone’s going to be talking about me and judging me’ … that’s real. I just loved being able to walk into it and lean into it and not be ashamed of it, but actually just … it was like …”
Thanks to Jennifer Aniston’s huge popularity, the actress has always been in the media for something or the other. But the Friends actress has undoubtedly handled the fame like a pro and we are really proud of her.
