Jennifer Aniston, Sebastian Stanbond to friend and talking cock

certainly Jennifer Aniston and Sebastian Stan Will definitely talk about the 1990s. Stein won an Emmy for playing Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee in Hulu’s limited series “Pam & Tommy,” which is set in Aniston’s decade as a “Friends” star. In fact, as Aniston thought, she could see Stan chilling on the café couch famous in her previous sitcoms. But they disagree on one thing: is he Joey or Chandler?

Then time travel to the early days of COVID to discuss Aniston’s transformative turn as anchor Alex Levy on “The Morning Show” season 2. In the latest episode of the Apple TV+ series, her character flies to Italy to confront her disgraced colleague and best friend Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell) — but it’s not always is the program plan.when they finish exchanging stories typeof”actor to actor” Presented by Apple TV+, Aniston and Stan are so comfortable that they’ve thrown themselves into a dream project together.

Sebastian Stan: I am your huge fan. I have been for many years, so this is special. Where I want to start is to do a show during COVID and have COVID as the theme. How does this approach it from Alex’s perspective?

Jennifer Aniston: When we started filming, there was apparently no COVID, despite the rumors. It was, like, January. We’ve been shooting for about a month. All of a sudden, companies are shutting down and working from home. We’re all saying, “Where’s the cast? We don’t have the luxury of social distancing. We’re on set together.”

Stan: Yes.

Aniston: They were like, “Screw up the cast.” So we closed. It took us a while to realize that Season 2 was missing something. It had to be completely reimagined. The same thing happened in Season 1, where we outlined about seven shows, the #MeToo movement happened. I feel like our show is a bit of a place where we actually deliver news literally, like in real time.

Stan: I find it heartbreaking and exhausting to watch the news in the midst of a pandemic. Sometimes it makes me paranoid. Did you find that you ended up seeing more news?

Aniston: In fact, quite the opposite. I used to watch more news because I like morning shows. But when we started filming, I stopped watching. Too much. You also filmed “Pam & Tommy” during the pandemic.

Stan: We did it. We started this time last year, so the vaccine is just coming out. Everyone feels safer or more relaxed. But that’s weird because it was the 90s, 12 hours a day.

Aniston: By the way, it feels like yesterday.

Stan: I know.

Aniston: I have about a thousand things to ask you about “Pam and Tommy.” Can I ask a really blatant person to get out of the way?

Stan: certainly.

Aniston: So you have a scene where you’re talking to your penis?

Stan: Yes. let’s talk.

Aniston: How do you prepare for this? How does it read to you on the page?

Stan: The train of thought begins to go into panic mode. It’s a difficult scene to shoot because we don’t know if it’s going to actually work — if it’s going to be too much.

Aniston: Did you shoot both ways?

Stan: No. There are components, things like manuals and prosthetics, and people who use wires to plug things into sockets.

Aniston: too crazy.

Stan: um, yes. Look, we have the benefits of CGI. But we went old school for this and it was a fun experience.

Aniston: very bold. very brave.

Stan: His penis is a character in the book he wrote. So the writers appreciated that and tried to find a creative way to get the guy to confess his love for this woman.

Aniston: How much have you researched Tommy and Pam? Are you familiar with them in the 90’s?

Stan: I am originally from Europe.

Aniston: from?

Stan: Romania. Then I lived in Vienna for a while. We moved to New York in ’95. I remember “Baywatch” more than anything. Even in Europe we used to watch religiously. You know, communism or not, you have “Baywatch”. But I really don’t know what’s going on. That’s what’s amazing about doing this show – how many people really don’t know the tape was stolen or that they have nothing to do with it.

Aniston: It was at a time when the internet really shaped a new culture about people becoming famous. People who are famous for basically doing nothing. I mean — Paris Hilton, Monica Lewinsky, all of that.

Stan: Yes. When you look back at the ’90s, you do see how much happened in that decade. Even the OJ Simpson incident was actually the start of 24 hour news.

Aniston: I always say I’m lucky that we knew a little bit about the industry before it became what it is today, it’s just different – more streaming services, more people. You are famous on TikTok. You are famous on YouTube. You are famous on Instagram. It’s kind of like diluting the work of our actors.

Stan: This brings me to something about “The Morning Show” that I’d love to ask you about. Did you find it any different as a streaming service? Or how did you approach this conversation?

Aniston: Well, Friends is — half an hour is way too easy by comparison… I mean, you have an audience.

Stan: This sounds like the scariest thing ever.

Aniston: By the way, every movie actor who came to our show, they were scared. Like, “Who are these people laughing at for what I’m saying?” I think “The Morning Show” feels like you’re shooting a movie, even though you’re covering more real estate every day. For me, I would have conversations every Sunday, and I would hammer out the whole week with my acting coach. We would spend three hours, sometimes four, watching every scene just so I was comfortable. I speak like someone who is much smarter than me.

Stan: Do you pay attention to anyone in particular?

Aniston: My dream man is Diane Sawyer. Before we started, I had a great dinner at her house. The stories are endless and fascinating. Galkin is great. Chris Cuomo is great. Hoda. They’re also excited because it’s a behind-the-scenes world.

Stan: I’m always amazed that their day starts at 3am.

Aniston: This is a very strange nocturnal presence. There were nights when Diane said she wanted to live her life with her husband and go to the theater, she just stayed awake. Then, resume over the weekend. She said she couldn’t make coffee at home because her husband would smell it and wake up – so she would sneak out of the house, run to work, and make her coffee. Very considerate to her.

Stan: As far as Alex and Mitch’s relationship goes, did you guys always know where it’s going at the end of season one? And some twists and turns, especially in Italy and so on?

Aniston: No, we have to reimagine. After summer vacation, [showrunner] Kerry Ehrin will think about season 2 and give us some highlights. I should start with recovery, like mental health. We always knew Mickey would die. He went to report on a war. He blew up in a building or something. Like, “This is so violent.” But then it all worked out well, and he was exiled to Italy to live in his disgrace. Have you always wanted to be an actor?

Stan: I think I’m really good at impressions and stuff. My mom used to take me out when we had people over.

Aniston: Your first big break was “Gossip Girl”?

Stan: “Law and Order”. Jerry Auerbach.

Aniston: I went to high school with his son. Are you a good auditioner?

Stan: I have no idea. I don’t mind that much.

Aniston: That’s very good. I was horrified by it. I would walk into that room shaking. It was a shock that I got hired. Let’s be clear. My first job was a big boy ad for Bob.

Stan: Really?

Aniston: I didn’t get hired for two years because I just walked into a room with my own worst enemy. You’ll be a good actor for “Friends”. You will be a Joey.

Stan: There have been many times I’ve had a lot of lonely nights with “friends” and I’ll tell you.

Aniston: Sometimes there is a friend in the room.

Stan: My friends are always walking around and asking, “Who do you look most like?” I’m always closest to Chandler because I’m a bit neurotic. And I just used to die laughing. Going back to Rachel for a “Friends” reunion, I can’t even imagine how surreal that experience must have been. How does it feel to see everyone? Is it catharsis? Or oddly enough, the same goosebumps are back? It’s all too familiar.

Aniston: Honestly, all of the above. I don’t know we expect it to hit us as hard as it does in the emotional gut. We just thought it would be fun – we’re going to get back to the scene exactly the way it was. Literally every corner of the shelf is the same. This is so creepy. But each of us, we walked in and was like, “Oh!”.

Stan: Yes.

Aniston: time travel. It ended in ’04. We are different. We are too young. Our lives are ahead of us. And a lot has changed. We are kind of like rose-tinted glasses. And then, it was like, “This is really a lot heavier than I thought.” But I wouldn’t change that at all. Every time we get together, it’s like no time has passed. We basically grew up together and taught each other a lot. We are each other’s substitutes because the world is happening. We’re exploding, and this notoriety is sudden. We’re doing shows on these four walls, and this madness is happening. Thank God we have each other because we really can’t talk about it outside. That was before social media, so we still have some sanity.

Stan: I’m thinking, if you had social media when Friends aired, it was almost like I was sure the network would say, “Hey, can we get your TikTok videos?” A lot of that stuff stayed on screen. That’s why I sometimes wonder: don’t we have some mystery?

Aniston: I miss the past so much. I also find it interesting that people still love it today because what are they related to? You look at a table for four people eating. A phone call is usually three people, just scrolling casually.

Stan: You read newspapers on the sofa, chatting over coffee.

Aniston: I have a very strange question. This has nothing to do with anything. You know the new thing where everyone says “it’s a technological bottleneck” because you’re looking down at your phone? Don’t people do the same when reading newspapers and books? So why is the tech neck a new thing?

Stan: I –

Aniston: I have no idea. Just thought I’d throw it out there. By the way, working on a green screen, what do you think of Marvel movies? I mean, this must be tedious, right?

Stan: I think there are more opportunities for distraction. You look over there, it’s a planet, there’s a cliff, and all these people are coming — and you’re just staring at a wall. It’s weird. I want to be able to have something to interact with.

Aniston: An actor, a real person.

Stan: rather than tennis. However, it also just lets you use your imagination in a different way. I never differentiate between genres of any kind.

Aniston: Do you have a favorite?

Stan: If I could live in the movie Notting Hill forever, I would.

Aniston: Is that romcom? Why do they have such a bad reputation now, because isn’t it fun to do so?

Stan: This will be.

Aniston: Want to do it?

Stan: do you want?

Aniston: I would.

Stan: Do one with you every second.

Aniston: Filmed in New York City?

Stan: yes. sounds good. They may be able to write it soon.

Aniston: great. We’re going to do a romantic comedy. So exciting.we’re going to bring them back
