Jennifer Aniston exposes Jimmy Kimmel's text to wife during emergency plane landing
Jennifer Aniston doesn't hold back when she's poking fun at Jimmy Kimmel.
The actress was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday with Adam Sandler to promote their new Netflix release, and during the segment Aniston called out the host for a hilarious yet inappropriate text he sent to his wife, Molly McNearney, earlier this year during a rather rocky flight to Mexico for Aniston's birthday.
''On the take off, on the taxi, we heard an explosion,'' she said. ''It sounded like a pothole if it was a car big enough to go over the Grand Canyon.''
The plane left Los Angeles for Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, but was rerouted to Ontario International Airport in Ontario, California.
This was due to a tire issue which forced the pilot to circle over the airport to burn fuel for hours prior to landing. ''I have a real fear of flying, obviously, and nobody else does,'' Aniston continued. ''Two hours into the flight attendant comes over to me and she says, "the pilots would like to talk to you."'
Aniston jested that she would never go talk to the pilot, so sent her "best friend Dre" instead. As it transpired, the plane had completely lost a tire, and they needed to head to another airport for an emergency landing.
After the incident, which took place in February, fellow Friends star, Courteney Cox, who was also on the flight said she was "really scared", despite having a pilot as a father.
"Everybody starts texting all of a sudden their spouses and their children and I'm like, "What's going on?"' Aniston continued. "I was one of them too,' Kimmel corroborated. ''I'm on google looking up things. Can you land without a tire? I was, I'm not kidding.''
The actress then proceeded to bring out her phone to reveal the exchange between Jimmy and his wife.
"This is the loving response that Molly got when she says "Jimmy, I love you and I love Jane and you've always been an incredible husband," the 50-year-old said.
The text read: "I just signed up for Tinder but I PROMISE not to activate it until we know what's what." Kimmel also included his "profile picture", which was a shirtless selfie with a backwards cap.
"You know, I was trying to lighten the mood," Kimmel counteracted.
"On a plane with some of America's most beloved national treasures," he said, reminiscing about the trip, before adding that Tinder was "going great".
Sandler and Aniston's comedy Murder Mystery will premiere on Netflix on June 14.
