Unfortunately, Jennifer Aniston will be skipping the 2021 Emmys because she’s still avoiding large indoor gatherings. Despite the multiple nominations earned by “Friends: The Reunion,” the star explained she’s not comfortable being around so many people just yet. “No, I will not be going,” Aniston said during an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on September 12. “I think Ben Winston, our producer and director, [who’s] incredible, who put the whole [reunion] together [will go].” Aniston went on to say that even going on the late night show was a “big step” for her, adding, “I’m just [taking] baby steps.”
Though the actor is vaccinated, she previously revealed she’s still worried about spreading the virus. “If you have the variant, you are still able to give it to me,” Aniston wrote on her Instagram Story (via Vanity Fair) in response to a user who asked, “But if she’s vaccinated she’s protected correct? Why be worried about unvaxxed around her?” She continued, “I may get slightly sick but I will not be admitted to a hospital and or die. BUT I CAN give it to someone else who does not have the vaccine and whose health is compromised (or has a previous existing condition) — and therefore I would put their lives at risk.” It seems like Aniston’s mind is set, and she’s stepping back into the normal glitz and glam of Hollywood on her own terms.
