Jennifer Aniston Recalls The 'Brutal' Thing About The 'Friends' Reunion Show

"I think it really took us all down way harder than we anticipated."

Filming the “Friends” reunion show that aired back in May was tougher than Jennifer Aniston ever thought it would be, the actor revealed this week.

“It was brutal,” Aniston, who played Rachel Green on the hit sitcom, told Rob Lowe on the latest episode of his podcast, “Literally! With Rob Lowe.”

“I think it really took us all down way harder than we anticipated,” Aniston recalled, describing her return to the set 16 years after the show’s conclusion as “nostalgic” tinged with “a little melancholy.”

Aniston said she and her co-stars Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc all ended up in tears at one point or another.

“I don’t think we broke David (Schwimmer),” she said. “But even LeBlanc broke at one point. You know, Mr. Tough Guy.”
