Jennifer Aniston made a name for herself in television by starring as Rachel Green in arguably the most popular sitcom of all-time, Friends.

Now, Aniston is preparing to return to small screen in The Morning Show alongside Reese Witherspoon.

But the entertainment landscape has changed dramatically since Aniston was last on TV, thanks to the rise of streaming services and, of course, Marvel movies.

While Aniston’s new show sees her venturing into the streaming world, she’s yet to make her way into the Marvel Universe.

Speaking to Variety, the actress discussed why she’s made the move to streaming and why she’s yet to add a Marvel movie to her resume.

“It wasn’t until the last couple of years when these streaming services were just sort of exploding with this amount of quality that I actually started to think, ‘Wow, that’s better than what I just did,'” Aniston said.

“And then you’re seeing what’s available out there and it’s just diminishing and diminishing in terms of, it’s big Marvel movies. Or things that I’m not just asked to do or really that interested in living in a green screen.”

While Marvel movies may be what draws in the audiences these days, Aniston admits she would love to see the return of rom-coms and the more ‘out there’ comedies.

“I think we would so love to have the era of Meg Ryan come back,” she continued. “I just think it would be nice to go into a movie theatre, sit cozy.

“I think we should have a resurgence. Let’s get the Terms of Endearment back out there. You know, Heaven Can Wait, Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, Goodbye Girl.”

The Morning Show will be coming to the Apple TV app this autumn.
