Hollywood — Friends star Jennifer Aniston truly understands the importance of Covid safety measures.

Since the pandemic started, she had cut ties with unvaccinated people in her life, prioritised public health recommendations and encouraged others to do the same.

It may be that many people are living as if the pandemic is no longer happening but Aniston is not one of them.

According to Buzzfeed, the actor is still avoiding large indoor gatherings which is why she will not be attending this Sunday’s Emmy Award show despite the multiple nominations earned by Friends: The Reunion. 

She shared about her decision to skip the awards show on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night.

“No, I will not be going,” she said, adding that the reunion itself is up for accolades, not her specifically.

She also noted that the special’s producer and director, Ben Winston, will likely attend the event in-person.

“This is a big step for me, to just be here,” Aniston continued, referencing the decision to appear on Jimmy’s talkshow after changing her lifestyle pretty radically with the onset of Covid-19.

“I’ve been in the house a lot,” she said earlier.

And, now: “I’m just… baby steps.”

Born Feb 11, 1969, Jennifer Joanna Aniston is an American actress, producer, and businesswoman.

The daughter of actors John Aniston and Nancy Dow, she began working as an actress at an early age with an uncredited role in the 1988 film Mac and Me. Her first major film role came in the 1993 horror-comedy Leprechaun.

Since her career progressed in the 1990s, she has become one of the world’s highest-paid actresses. Films with her in the leading role have grossed over $1.6 billion worldwide, with 12 of them earning at least $100 million.

Aniston rose to international fame for her role as Rachel Green on the television sitcom Friends (1994–2004), for which she earned Primetime Emmy, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild awards.

She has since played starring roles in numerous dramas, comedies and romantic comedies. Her biggest box office successes include Bruce Almighty (2003), The Break-Up (2006), Marley & Me (2008), Just Go with It (2011), Horrible Bosses (2011), and We’re the Millers (2013), each of which grossed over $200 million in worldwide box office receipts. /TISG
