    Jennifer Aniston Joked That She Handled The End Of "Friends" With "Divorce" And "Therapy"

    "Let's just end everything!"

    Ah, the mid '00s were certainly a wild time — but especially if your name was Jennifer Aniston. Friends ended! Jen and Brad were no more! So many tank tops!

    Well, as part of Ellen's final Ellen episode, J-An was brought back to reminisce about her first time on the show — way back in 2003.

    When asked about how she handled the ending of Friends in 2004, Jennifer laughed and said, "Well, I got a divorce and went into therapy. Then I did a movie called The Break Up."

    "I just leaned into the end. I was just like, 'You know what, guys? Let's make this a completely new chapter.'"

    "Let's just end everything! And start new," she added. "It worked great!"

    Jen doesn't typically talk about the divorce (nor does she need to) — but that didn't stop Brad from poking fun at his failed relationships during his SAG Awards speech for his role in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. "[I played] a guy who gets high, takes his shirt off, and doesn't get on with his wife. It was a big stretch," he joked, as Jennifer sat in the audience.

    Good for you, Jen!
