It took less than 24 hours for Jimmy Kimmel to need to address the quasi-“Friends” reunion he hosted on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Aug. 27. Apparently a large majority of viewers who commented about the bit online didn’t realize the entire thing had been staged.
“We’re clearly acting right? Right? For some reason maybe half of the people commenting online, if not more, seem to think that was real,” Kimmel says to kick off his Aug. 28 show. I’m not kidding.”
He then revealed an array of comments that were very convinced Jennifer Aniston was completely surprised when Kimmel revealed the clearly staged reunion. “Well she was acting — apparently very well, too. She should probably get an Emmy for that acting,” he says to laughter.
