Jennifer Aniston nixed intimacy coordinator in ‘Morning Show’ sex scene with Jon Hamm

Aniston said having “The Morning Show” director and co-executive producer, Leder, on set made her feel protected.

“I never felt uncomfortable,” Aniston told the outlet. “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.”

“I’m from the olden days, so I was like, ‘What does that mean?’” Aniston, 54, told Variety. “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.”

“I’ve known the Hammanator for a long, long time,” she also noted in the interview.

Leder spoke with the outlet in October when the internet was initially buzzing over seeing Aniston and Ham in the buff.

“It was a closed set, and [with] two very grown-up actors who really understood the nature of the storytelling and were very much a part of it,” Leder added. “We wanted it to be sensitive. We wanted it to be sexy. We wanted it to be adult. We wanted it to be emotional. They really let go. They’re great actors. And there you have it.”

According to co-executive producer Kristin Hahn, it was Aniston who insisted that Hamm get the role.
