Jennifer Aniston breaks down on-camera as fans fume at producers: ‘So insensitive’

Jennifer Aniston fought back tears after being asked a question about Friends in a heartbreaking interview.

The actress burst into tears at the mention of the popular sitcom, just months after the death of her co-star Matthew Perry.

When producers spoke to actress Quinta Brunson for Variety, they urged her to question Aniston about her time on the show, and things quickly escalated.

“Oh God, don’t make me cry,” Aniston told Brunson as she was overwhelmed by her emotions.

“I won’t… you’re already crying, do you want a minute?” Brunson asked her, looking concerned.

Aniston wiped tears from her face as she explained that she was fine, alluding to how the mention of the show made her think of her co-star Matthew Perry, who died last year.

“I’m fine. It’s a tear of joy,” she stammered. “It’s so weird to even think that it’s 30 years old. I remember the day it premiered, you know, on TV, on NBC.

“Me and Matthew Perry were having lunch somewhere and we knew Lisa [Kudrow] She was getting her hair dyed, so we ran to the hairdresser and I snuck in and she was standing in the hair washing bowl and I took the nozzle and just started washing her hair.

“And it definitely got out of control and that was unfortunate, but the excitement we had and it feels like yesterday.”

Fans heavily criticized producers for pushing Aniston to talk about such an emotional topic, and many praised Brunson for how she handled the awkward moment.

“I feel so sorry for Jennifer but why are they asking her this question?” asked one fan.

“I don’t care about Jennifer’s opinion, it was really disgusting to ask her that,” complained a second annoyed fan.

Others complimented Brunson, saying, “Quinta is an absolute advocate, she’s such a sweetheart,” with another adding, “The question was so unnecessary. They obviously just wanted a reaction from Jen. To hell with them.”

“This is so insensitive. They just wanted a highlight reel like this of Jen breaking down,” another fan added.

“The question was unnecessary, or they could have asked it differently. Hell, they could have asked Jen if she wanted to answer first. They’re still human! And besides, well done, Quinta, for handling it!”
