Asked about what she did after “Friends” stopped airing, Aniston replied, “I got a divorce and went into therapy.”
The Emmy-winner and Brad Pitt divorced in 2005 amid media speculation about Pitt’s relationship with his “Mr & Mrs Smith” co-star, Angelina Jolie.
Aniston continued, “Then I did a movie called ‘The Breakup’. I just kind of leaned into the end… Let’s just end everything and then start new.”
She added, “It worked great!”
Aniston then asked DeGeneres to share her future plans.
“I want to lay low for a little while, I want to rest and then I’ll do something but I don’t know what it is yet,” she admitted.
The “Morning Show” star also reminisced about her past appearances on “Ellen” and gave the host a sentimental parting gift.
