Paul Rudd admits he upset Jennifer Aniston on his very first day filming Friends


Paul Rudd has revealed his nightmare first day on the set of Friends that saw him upset an injured Jennifer Aniston.

Speaking on the Graham Norton show, the Hollywood actor recalled the horrifying moment he accidentally ran over Jennifer’s broken toe on a Segway.

Reminiscing about the incident, Paul said: “I was on the set for my first episode and Jennifer was on a Segway because she had broken her toe, and everyone was marvelling at it.

Paul said he thought his days on Friends were numbered before they’d began when he injured lead actress Jennifer Aniston

Paul said it was ‘incredible’ to join the hit series

“Matt LeBlanc asked to have a go and immediately knew how to do it. I then asked to try it too. I spun round and rolled it right over Jennifer’s foot!

The producers look of panic was if to say, “Is it too late to fire him? Has his character been established yet?” I felt awful. Such an inauspicious start.”

And Paul’s awkward times with lead actress Jennifer did not stop there.

Paul also had a run-in with Jen on the last day of shooting

He’d been hired to play Phoebe’s temporary boyfriend but stayed much longer

After being hired to play Phoebe Buffet’s new boyfriend Mike, Paul had only been booked to appear in a few episodes but ended up sticking around when producers changed their script.

Paul told chat show host Norton that he couldn’t believe it when he was asked to appear in the iconic last episode of the series.

“The show was a phenomenon and I was in the very last episode, which made no sense to me whatsoever.

“I was on the sound stage and Jennifer Aniston was crying and I thought, “I’m not supposed to be here”, so to break the ice I went over and said, “Well, we did it, what a ride.”

“The joke inevitably fell flat!” he recalled.

Paul said he was grateful to have been asked to take part

But despite a few dicey moments, Paul said it was ‘incredible’ to be a part of the show which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.

Clearly there was no grudge on Jennifer’s part as she went on to play Paul’s wife in the 2012 Wanderlust.

Rudd appears on The Graham Norton Show alongside Robert De Niro, Bruce Springsteen, Sienna Miller and James Blunt.

The Graham Norton Show is on BBC One at 10.35pm on Friday October 11.
