Reese Witherspoon Jokes That Jennifer Aniston Is Taking Her ‘Morning Show’ Role a Little Too Seriously

Whether she's bending and snapping or celebrating four Christmases, Reese Witherspoon knows how to get audiences laughing when she's on screen. But the 45-year-old actress can be quite funny in real life, too.

Just recently, Witherspoon was goofing off on the set of her Apple TV+ series The Morning Show, where she was having some fun with the billboards of Jennifer Aniston that were hanging around the room. She posted a slideshow of her on-set antics and said, “When shooting during a pandemic, you have to connect with your costars in different ways. Love you @jenniferaniston! New episode of @themorningshow is live! Check it out.”

In the slideshow, Witherspoon smiles and holds up a hand heart next to the pictures of Aniston. In the last slide, the actress even posted a video of herself talking to the image of her co-star.

In the video, Witherspoon jokingly talks to the poster of Aniston, and says, “Jen, I know our characters are mad at each other, should try, I mean—you can speak to me! It's just me. I mean our characters don't talk to each other, but, like in real life...”

Aniston ended up replying to Witherspoon's post, saying, “But I LOVE you!” And she added a laughing emoji and a kissy face emoji.

The actresses are celebrating the second season of their hit series The Morning Show, which just premiered last week. New episodes will be released every Friday for the next two months, and we can't wait to see what drama unfolds.

We're glad to know they have just as much fun on set as we do watching them on screen.
