Jennifer Aniston has hosted a mini Friends reunion to watch the Emmy Awards 2020 together.

The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards took place in LA on Sunday night, with the event being held virtually for the first time amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Jennifer was joined by her Friends’ co-stars Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow as they tuned in to watch the ceremony, chatting to host Jimmy Kimmel.

“We’ve been roommates since 1994, Jimmy,” Jennifer replied when asked what the three of them were doing together – referencing the hit sitcom.

While chatting to Jimmy, Jennifer was joined on video call by Courteney – promoting the host to ask: “Courteney’s there?”

“Of course I’m here, we live together,” Courteney joked – referring to her Friends character Monica being roommates with Jen’s character Rachel on the show.

Joining her co-stars, Lisa appeared on camera asking: “Is this live TV?”

Following the reunion, fans of the show took to Twitter to share their excitement – with one fan writing: “It hasn’t been our day, our week, our month, or even our year, but at least we got part of the Friends reunion!”

The reunion comes just days after Jennifer reunited with her ex-husband Brad Pitt, with the former couple reenacting a steamy scene together.

The Hollywood stars, who were married from 2000 until 2005, joined a star-studded virtual reading of the 1982 comedy Fast Times at Ridgemont High on Thursday.


Brad played the role of Brad Hamilton in the virtual reenactment, while Jennifer played the role of Linda – who Brad’s character has a crush on.

Morgan Freeman narrated a raunchy scene where Brad is fantasising about his crush, while Jennifer reads: “Hi Brad, you know how cute I always thought you were.”

Jennifer’s character added: “You’re so sexy. Will you come to me?”

Matthew McConaughey, Julia Roberts, John Legend, Jimmy Kimmel, Morgan Freeman, Shia LaBeouf, Dane Cook, Henry Golding and Sean Penn also attended the virtual event.

The event served as a fundraiser for two nonprofit organisations: CORE – which provides emergency relief amid the coronavirus pandemic, and the REFORM Alliance – which is focused on reforming the criminal justice system.

After watching the flirty scene, fans took to Twitter to share their excitement – with one writing: “Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston infront of each other face to face has to be the highlight of this year.”
