    People Are Defending Jennifer Aniston After Her Recent Morning Interview With Reese Witherspoon Went Viral

    Ummmm...that got a little awkward.

    Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon are in full swing promoting Season 2 of their hit Apple TV+ series The Morning Show.

    Which means plenty of stops at real-life morning shows to talk about their work.

    One interview in particular is going viral after Jennifer had a weird moment with host Jermaine Jenas on The One Show.

    Jennifer and Reese appeared remotely to discuss the filming of the series, particularly their early morning scenes.

    "I got there at 5 in the morning and the hallways were quiet and people are just slowly waking up, and then all of a sudden, the train starts moving and it gets crazier and crazier. It’s utter chaos," Jennifer explained.

    Jermaine then interrupted Jennifer to ask Reese a question: "Reese, I’ve got to be honest with you, Jennifer’s pretty much sold it to me that she’s not a morning person."

    Jennifer's reaction was pretty stunned and confused, before she remarked, "Did I sell that to you? ... Did I get a good deal?" Watch the moment for yourself around the 4:10 mark of the video.

    The two recovered fairly quickly, with Reese trying to bury the awkwardness of it.

    "I’m definitely a morning person. Jen and I talk about this all the time. I’m the morning person and she’s more of a night person," Reese shared. "So, it actually works out because I do kind of the early morning scenes, and then by 4 o’clock I’m toast, and then Jen starts around 11 and 12."

    Leave it to Reese to have her back! We love to see a solid costar save.

    Many fans didn't actually think the moment was that bad and have been coming to Jennifer's defense on social media.

    One fan said she "did nothing wrong."

    Just seen the one show interview with Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer did nothing wrong it was Jermaine Jenas that was was to blame, first he interrupted Jennifer to ask Reese a question then he calls Jennifer, Rachel.

    Another remarked that there was "some supposed awkwardness," but it wasn't even that bad.

    I just watched the Jennifer Aniston interview after seeing that there was some supposed awkwardness... it wasn't at all awkward. No more than a normal video interview with delays, etc. More non-news.

    One fan told everyone to just "relax." Honestly, he's right.

    Must be a slow news day if the media is trying to sensationalize a normal interview with Jennifer Aniston as "cringe-worthy" and "dramatic." Relax people.

    The YouTube reactions to the video agreed as well. One person said this wasn't "nearly as awkward as reported."

    A different user said Jennifer did nothing wrong.

    While another fan called her reaction "perfect."

    Well, the people have spoken! There's nothing to see here. Except for maybe Season 2 of The Morning Show! What do you think of the moment? Did you cringe?
