Jennifer Aniston attracts criticism for comments on intimacy coordinators

Jennifer Aniston has attracted criticism on social media for her recent comments about why she declined to work with an intimacy

coordinator on The Morning Show.

Featuring an all-star cast of Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Billy Crudup and Julianna Margulies, the Apple TV+ series follows a fictional breakfast show in the aftermath of a prominent news anchor being hit with a series of allegations.

Speaking to Variety alongside co-star Witherspoon, Aniston was asked how she and director Mimi Leder prepared for a sex scene with series newcomer Jon Hamm.

“Having Mimi there, you’re protected,” said Aniston. “I never felt uncomfortable. Jon was such a gentleman, always – I mean every move, every cut, ‘You OK?’ It was also very choreographed. That’s the beauty of Mimi and our gorgeous editor, the music and lighting. So, you don’t prepare.”

Aniston continued: “They asked us if we wanted an intimacy coordinator. I’m from the olden days, so I was like, ‘What does that mean?’ They said, ‘Where someone asks you if you’re OK,’ and I’m like, ‘Please, this is awkward enough!’ We’re seasoned – we can figure this one out. And we had Mimi there.”
