Paul Rudd Describes Cringeworthy Jennifer Aniston Moments On ‘Friends’

During an interview on The Graham Norton Show, the 50-year-old explained that he felt out of place when the sitcom wrapped up, saying his insecurities got the better of him and potentially the worst of Jennifer.

Matt LeBlanc asked to have a go and immediately knew how to do it. I then asked to try it, too.” — Rudd “spun round and rolled it right over Jennifer’s foot!”
He said, “The producers look of panic was if to say, ‘Is it too late to fire him? Has his character been established yet?’ I felt awful … such an inauspicious start.”
It would seem their friendship has been salvaged though because in 2012 the two starred as a couple in Wanderlust.
On a final note about his overall experience on Friends, he said, “It was an incredible thing to be part of and the whole experience, but seems a bit surreal and a bit of a blur in my memory,”
