Reese Witherspoon Praises Jennifer Aniston’s Humor: ‘One of the Funniest People I’ve Ever Met’
Reese Witherspoon recently opened up about what it is like to perform on set with "Friends" star Jennifer Aniston, who she considers to be "one of the funniest people" she has ever met.
According to the 45-year-old, Aniston, with whom she has been friends for a very long time, is quite the comedian, so much that it makes it hard for her not to laugh while filming.
Witherspoon, who stars on Apple TV+'s series "The Morning Show" alongside Aniston, shared that they often have to pretend to fight for their scenes but it is hard to do so due to the latter's funny vein.

TWO PEAS IN A POD
On the show, the Witherspoon plays the role of Bradley Jackson while Aniston gives life to Alex Levy, two anchors who find themselves exposed to a toxic workplace in their network.
Aniston also appeared on "The Ellen Degeneres Show," which is in its final season.
During a chat with People host Kay Adams, Witherspoon explained that their characters get into quite a few arguments during the story but that the energy on the set is so much lighter than what appears on the screen.
The actress said they love each other so much that it is hard for them to be mean, and the fact that Aniston is always cracking her up doesn't help. She said, "Her delivery is perfect on every joke."
The "Legally Blonde" star also stated that they have been looking for a project they could both work on for several years, which was why she considered this opportunity to be "perfect."
Witherspoon's comments came after Aniston's guest appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," where she claimed to be "hard" to fake being mad at her. She added:
"It's always fun to fight with Reese because she's such a sweet burst of sunshine that she's, you know, not someone you wanna go scream your head off to."

According to Aniston, who recently attended the "Friends" reunion alongside David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, and Matthew Perry, they always end up laughing "at some point."
Aside from Kimmel's show, Aniston also appeared on "The Ellen Degeneres Show," which is in its final season. The actress was visibly emotional as she was the first guest in the history of the famous talk show.
While the audience cheered loudly as she walked out, tears could be seen pooling in her eyes as she tried to compose herself, with DeGeneres telling her that the show was just about to start.
