Jennifer Aniston guests hosts for Ellen and shares some ‘deep, dark secrets’ about the star

Jennifer Aniston nails her guest hosting duties on Ellen as she jokes about their real life friendship and being the comedian’s first-ever guest

She was Ellen’s very first guest a whopping 17 years ago, and now she’s guest hosting on the hit show for her beloved ‘real-life friend.’

Jennifer Aniston looked sublime as she guest-hosted for Ellen DeGeneres on her hit daytime show Friday, while Ellen claimed she had to go to the DMV.

Aniston, 50, took advantage of Ellen’s absence to ‘share some dirt’ on the daytime star, getting right to the meat of if with some ‘deep, dark secrets.’

‘She throws pennies away. She throws them right into the garbage, in front of people,’ Jen exclaimed, poking fun at Ellen’s staggering financial success. ‘Good luck pennies!’ 

Another big ‘reveal’ came when Aniston said, ‘I can’t even walk into her dressing room because she’s burning one of those Gwyneth Paltrow candles!’ 

After a few more jokey secrets, the Cake star began reminiscing about the past and shared a true ‘secret,’ or rather, little-known fact about her and Ellen: ‘I was actually Ellen’s very first guest on this show!’

She was referring to her September 8, 2003 appearance on Ellen’s show, which indeed was the first-ever episode of the long-running, Emmy Award-winning talk show.

And while footage of that first appearance on Ellen’s show exists on YouTube, Aniston continued poking fun by recreating the clip on Friday with child actors miming to her and Ellen’s voices from back then.

Jennifer, who this past weekend won a SAG Award for her dramatic performance on the Apple TV+ series The Morning Show, also reminisced about something else related to her guest-hosting Ellen’s show.

She reminded the audience and viewers that The Ellen DeGeneres Show is filmed on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, California, which just so happened to have been Aniston’s professional home way back when.

‘I spent ten years here on a show called Friends,’ she told the audience, who immediately went wild with approval.

And for the occasion, Jen showed another video gag depicting her hiding out on the set of Central Perk from Friends — which still exists as part of the permanent studio tour at Warner Brothers — and jumping up from behind the couch to scare unsuspecting studio guests.

The episode, which airs Friday, will see Aniston welcome guests Will Ferrell and Selena Gomez.
