Hasan Minhaj questioned if Jennifer Aniston liked him while filming their first major scene on ‘The Morning Show’.
The 36-year-old actor plays the role of Eric Nomani, Bradley Jackson’s (Reese Witherspoon) new co-host on the titular breakfast news programme, and admitted the scenes were so “intense” between himself and Jennifer’s character, Alex Levy, that he couldn’t gauge if she disliked him as a person or not.
However, as soon as they finished shooting the scene, he realised the 52-year-old star is just a “really good actor”.
He recalled: “It was the second day I was on set, and I had to do this really intense scene where Eric and Alex Levy go head-to-head and Alex does not like Eric and it was really, really intense.
“While we were filming the scene, she’s such a good actress, there was part of me that was like, ‘Does Rachel from ‘Friends’ not like me?’”
Hasan added to E! News: “And then as soon as they hit cut she was like, ‘Honey, you were great. You did awesome.’
“And I was like, ‘Oh, thank god. But we’re good right?’ And she was like, ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah, we’re fine.’”
Jennifer previously admitted she loved showing her “rage” on the Apple TV+ show.
The ‘Just Go With It’ actress, who also executive produces the series alongside Reese – shared: “My character has a lot of rage. I have meltdowns, which were really fun to do because as a rule I just don’t do that in my personal life.”
Similarly, Jennifer enjoyed the challenge of executive producing ‘The Morning Show’.
The Hollywood star said: “We were very hands-on. It was very different to the last time I was on television. This was like a film schedule. It was such hard work, but so much fun.”
