In an “Ellen” episode that aired Monday, the “Morning Show” star shared a quick and comical kiss with DeGeneres. The moment came about after DeGeneres recalled a similar smooch with Howard Stern on the Oct. 14 episode.
True to form, DeGeneres quickly turned the tables on Aniston when the former “Friends” actor asked the host, who is a lesbian, how long it had been since she’d last kissed a man.
“I don’t make out with guys, but I kiss guys on the lips,” she said, before asking Aniston, “When was the last time you kissed a girl on the lips?”
To the delight of the audience, Aniston briefly adjusted her hair before leaning in for the quick peck.
“That’s what they wanted to see,” DeGeneres said. “They’ve been wanting that for years.”
“That’s the last time I kissed a girl,” clarified Aniston.
As of Monday morning, a snapshot of the instantly iconic moment had yet to appear on Aniston’s Instagram. DeGeneres, however, had already uploaded the image to her account, where it has since received more than 1.4 million likes.
Her first image was an endearing selfie with former “Friends” castmates Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer. The photo set fans’ tongues wagging once again about the possibility of full-fledged “Friends” reunion.
“We would love for there to be something,” she said, “but we don’t know what that something is.”
