Jennifer Aniston Refused To Work With An Intimacy Coordinator For Steamy Scene With Jon Hamm

Jennifer Aniston served some piping hot tea regarding the infamous sex scene she shot with Jon Hamm for the AppleTV+ series, The Morning Show.

The Morning Show’s third season was released in September, but it wasn’t before October that passionate discussions about the series started to circulate, when its sixth episode titled The Stanford Student was released.

In the episode, Jennifer, who plays the role of reporter and morning show host Alex Levy, joins Jon, who plays tech billionaire Paul Marks, in a sexy scene.

As the steamy moment builds up, Paul is contemplating buying the UBA Network, the fictional American network that airs The Morning Show, for a whopping $40 billion.

The pair seemingly put the serious exchange aside, as the tension reignites an old spark between them, and it’s not long before the pair end up falling into bed with one another.

The scene sparked heated reactions on X (formerly known as Twitter), as a user wrote: “Actually incredible how Jennifer Aniston and Jon Hamm are two very beautiful people and yet their sex scene in tonight’s Morning Show is going to haunt me for the rest of my life.

“Their post-coital cuddle is Jon Hamm lying fully on his stomach with Jennifer Aniston lying completely on top of his back. Both fully naked.”

Another person penned: “Okay, I gotta say the sex scene with Jennifer Aniston and Jon Hamm in the latest The Morning Show episode on AppleTV was, pretty pretty pretty hot…”

Mimi said: “This is a mutual, genuine affection. And that’s why we chose not to do the rip-your-clothes-off sex scene. 

“It was looking into each other’s eyes, finding the tender center of the scene. That first, deep emotional connection. Two people just caught up in each other, taken away by the moment.”

The 71-year-old television director went on to reveal that whilst filming the scene, it was a closed set, “and two very grown-up actors who really understood the nature of the storytelling”.

She further explained: “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.”

Mimi admitted to enjoying the scene, describing it as a “sort of a rom-com episode, but it’s also a very important, political episode and a turning point in the series.”

The 54-year-old actress continued: “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.

“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.”
