The ‘Friends’ alum hints it has nothing to do with her concerns over the coronavirus pandemic
The Emmy Awards are about to come, but sad news for “Friends” fans: Jennifer Aniston won’t be attending.
The actress confirmed that she is skipping this year’s Emmys, scheduled for this Sunday, because of her precautions around the coronavirus.
“No, I won’t go,” Aniston announced Monday on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
Aniston said she believes the “Friends” reunion director and producer Ben Winston will participate on behalf of the cast.
“It’s a big step for me to be here,” Aniston continued to Kimmel, adding that she’s taking “baby steps.”

Elsewhere in her conversation with the Late Night host, Aniston admitted that she’s been extra cautious about going out in public.
“I’ve been at home a lot. I went back to my house to shoot ‘The Morning Show’ from Sony Studios,” she said.
The actress said that apart from work, there are only a few places she regularly visits amid the pandemic. She said she has only traveled to Kimmel’s home in Los Angeles to visit the Bateman home and that of her good friend Courteney Cox.
“It was like this little bubble of friends. Thank God I love you all so much,” she said.
Aniston spent her time in the midst of the pandemic “difficult” mainly to be in the spotlight and acknowledged that the world is going through “strange times”.
The HBO Max “Friends” reunion garnered four Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Lighting Design/Lighting Direction for a Variety Special, Outstanding Variety Special, Outstanding Production Design, and Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special.
