Earlier this month the beauty shared some snapshots from set of her Apple TV+ show, The Morning Show.
On the series, inspired by the Brian Stelter book Top Of The Morning: Inside The Cutthroat World Of Morning TV, Aniston plays TV anchor Alex Levy.
Levy is forced to fight for her job after her on-air colleague Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell) is fired for sexual misconduct.
It’s then she finds herself at odds with Reese Witherspoon’s Bradley Jackson, an ambitious, shoot-from-the-hip style field reporter.
Defence: Others praised the actress for her work raising awareness of the pandemic and subsequent guidelines
The project earned both Reese and Jennifer Golden Globe Nominations. (They ended up losing to Olivia Coleman in The Crown.)
Jen and Reese first worked together more than a decade ago as the Green sisters on the classic television show, Friends.
Jennifer will join her former Friends co-stars next year for a reunion after efforts to reunite this year were stalled due to the coronavirus.
She’ll join Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow for a one-off special of their hit NBC sitcom, which will see them reminisce about their time on the much-loved series.
