Jennifer Aniston Has a History of Forgetting Lines

In a years-old behind-the-scenes feature of the show Friends, Jennifer Aniston's Friends co-star Courteney Cox revealed that Aniston was the one who had the most trouble at memorizing lines. "Who flubs the lines the most? Jennifer, I don't think she's gotten one right since we started the show.

It is like take after take," Cox had said.

Another Friends star Matthew Perry agreed with Cox on Aniston being forgetful.  In the feature, shot when the show was still going on, Perry said, "…she's correct, I've never heard her say a smarter thing in her life." Neither of them was joking when they said that Aniston was the one who forgot lines most frequently if the numerous unscripted scenes caused by the Leprechaun star are anything to go by.

Jennifer Aniston's Forgetfulness Resulted in Many Unscripted Scenes

In the Friends' episode The One after Vegas in the sixth season, the line- "this is the world's worst hangover" was completely made up on the spot by Aniston.

Another one of these unscripted scenes happened in the 16th episode of the 7th season of Friends. This scene, however, was not because Aniston forgetting her lines. It was because David Schummer pranked her by throwing a dummy down the stairs that elicited a very genuine but exaggerated reaction out of The Morning Show actress who wasn't aware about the scene happening.

Aniston also said that sometimes they were given really long monologues. "There were scribbles all over that set," she said.
