Jennifer Aniston shadowed Diane Sawyer at work to prepare for her role as a news anchor in “The Morning Show”.
Aniston sat down with the New York Times for an interview and discussed a variety of topics including her new Apple show.
The show focuses on the behind-the-scenes of a morning news show. Aniston is joined by Steve Carell and Reese Witherspoon. Carell plays her co-anchor (who is fired for alleged sexual harassment) and Witherspoon plays a producer. The show premieres November 1.
In the sit-down, Aniston revealed she went backstage at “Good Morning America” to learn the news world.
She also spent time with legendary anchor, Diane Sawyer, to learn about the profession. The article notes she researched, “everything from her clothing choices to her caffeine habits, which involved toggling between Coca-Cola, Red Bull and coffee.”
