Jennifer Aniston went out of her way to make the radio intern look good

Jennifer Aniston is truly one of the “friends” who will always be there for you.

In his upcoming book “Good Listen: Creating Memorable Conversations In Business And Life,” author and podcaster Joe Pardavila revealed that the actress went out of her way to give him an interview when he was just an intern at “Scott & Todd in the Morning” at 95.5 PLJ.

He recalled being sent in 1997 to track her down on the set of “Picture Perfect” for an exclusive interview. However, as he approached her trailer in Midtown Manhattan, her bodyguard immediately stopped him.

“He saw me and felt what I was going to do. He walked right up to me,” he claimed in his book.

“I held up my radio microphone and said in my most soothing and innocent tone, ‘Hey, I just want to ask Jennifer a few questions, that’s all.’ The guard informed me that would not happen, his tone was not reassuring or innocent.”

However, Aniston, having heard the commotion, came out and told him she couldn’t speak before hiding in her caravan. With his tail between his legs, Pardavila returned to the station.

But “a few minutes later, Jennifer Aniston had her assistant call PLJ’s front desk to say that Jennifer felt bad about what had happened. In fact, she would love to do an interview with the morning show.”

She “talked us for twenty minutes about the movie she was making, her time on ‘Friends,’ anything you could want to talk about with Jennifer Aniston,” he wrote.

“Friends” shot Aniston to stardom after it premiered in 1994. The show aired the final episode 10 years later.

Pardavila’s book features a number of celebrity stories, including those about Taylor Swift, Jon Bon Jovi, and John Mayer.

“Good Listen: Creating Memorable Conversations In Business And Life” will be released July 12.
