Ellen Grills Jennifer Aniston on Her ‘Close Friend’ Comments

I almost just perched myself
right on the old arm there. You should have done that and
acted like nothing was wrong. Like, that’s the way
you were going to sit. Well, that’s what I did-ish. You handled it very well. Hi! It’s good to see you again. It’s good to see you, always. Always good to see you. I saw you a few weeks ago. I gave you the award,
Power Woman of Hollywood. You’re the most powerful woman– [APPLAUSE] Maybe– I love that you
say that to me though. That means so much. It’s true. You got the award for it. There was a couple of women
that got the award for it. But I was one of five, six. But you were the most
powerful of all of them. And let’s be honest. OK, Ellen. OK. It was wonderful. It was fun. It was fun. The prompter broke. It sure did. Yeah. You were there. First of all, thank you for
coming and doing that for me and introducing and
giving it to me. It was my pleasure
and an obligation. [LAUGHTER] I understand. As a best friend. As a best friend– well, OK. So I said, she’s one
of my closest friends, I’m one of her closest friends. And then she comes
out and says, don’t say that, I have a lot of
best friends in the audience. Well, I did. Well, I know. But why don’t you just
play along with me and let me be your best friend? Well, that’s probably
the “coda” in me– co-dependent, taking care
of my friend’s feelings. Oh. You know? Yeah. That’s sweet of you. That’s why you’re
my best friend. Right. Exactly. That’s how I take care of you. And I take care of– we– I’m coda– Take care of each other. –as well. Great. We make a great match. It’s a wonderful friendship. That’s why we’re not together. [LAUGHTER] So yeah, so the prompter broke. Yes, the prompter broke. They were trying to fix it. I went out and I– You went out, and you danced
with the electrical guy that was– I was giving him time to fix it. So I danced– But wait. Did you show what you
actually did to him? Well, no. I kind of grinded
on him didn’t I? You did. I did. Kind of? You did. He didn’t even know it. Well, could you
imagine if he was like, oh, let me take
a moment and enjoy this– when the world is
falling apart, in his mind? Yeah, I know, poor guy. But anyway, so you
were wonderful. And then you came
the very next day to the Gorillapalooza event,
which was very sweet of you– because you had to get up early
in the morning to do press. Yes. So thanks for that. Thank you. You’re just saying all my
good deeds for the weekend. Yeah, because you did a
lot of wonderful things. I did a lot– even, I went
to visit you after the award, on Friday, when you
were getting a haircut. You sure did. You stopped by. I get a text from Jennifer and
it says, do you have a belt? And I’m like, what do you
mean do I have– of course I have a belt. Why are you
asking if I have a belt? No, first you said, this is
Ellen, who are you texting? And I said, I’m texting you. I need a belt. I thought you’d be
texting a stylist. I mean, why text me,
do you have a belt? Yeah. Let’s jump to this very
important information– not information yet. But you’ll give it to us. OK. When are you going to
guest host the show? Oh, This show? Don’t you want her to
guest host this show? [CROWD CHEERING] I’m dying to guest host it. So when do you want me to do it? For my birthday,
or your birthday. OK. Or in between. In between. Yeah. Why don’t you do that? But you won’t be here. Right? The whole point is– No, the whole point is you
guest host, and I’m not here. Right. Yeah. It’s my day off, and then
you’re here for that. OK. All right, great. Can I call you from the set? Uh-uh. [LAUGHTER] Mary! Yeah, you can. All right, Jen is
here for a while. You’re not leaving
for a while, and we’re going to play a really fun
game, my favorite game. What? You’ll see. Oh. And then she’s going to
make a big announcement about the “Friends” reunion,
which is going to be fantastic.
