Jennifer Aniston Reveals Reason She Walked Out Of Emotional Friends Reunion

The Friends reunion was an emotional nostalgia trip for fans when it aired in May this year. After 14 years apart, the cast from one of the world's most beloved sitcoms were back together on set.

However the reunion was also a whirlwind for the cast, particularly Jennifer Aniston, who has revealed for the first time that she was forced to walk off set 'several times' after becoming emotional.

After responding that 'time travel is hard', Jennifer opened up further and hinted that being reminded of where her life was back when the show was in production between 1994-2004, which she called 'jarring'.

"I think we were just so naive walking into it, thinking, 'How fun is this going to be? They’re putting the sets back together, exactly as they were.' Then you get there and it’s like, 'Oh right, I hadn’t thought about what was going on the last time I was actually here.'

She added: "And it just took me by surprise because it was like, 'Hi, past, remember me? Remember how that sucked? You thought everything was in front of you and life was going to be just gorgeous and then you went through maybe the hardest time in your life?'
