Friends star Jennifer Aniston claims ‘more MeToo allegations will surface’

The former Friends star has also told of how her new series The Morning Show had to be altered after the wave of allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein in 2017 prompted many within the entertainment industry to share their own experiences of sexual misconduct.

The Apple TV drama will go behind the scenes at talk shows in New York while exploring the power dynamic between men and women in the workplace.

Aniston, who also executive produces the programme, told Radio Times magazine that they have "had to regroup and redirect the show to include all that stuff" thanks to the shockwaves caused by MeToo.

The star who recently broke the internet after she joined Instagram claims that Weinstein also attempted to force her to wear a dress designed by his then-wife.

Having found fame playing Rachel Green in sitcom Friends 25 years ago, Aniston said that she has largely "had a pretty easy time in terms of my experience in the business" regarding gender equality.

She added: "But even back on Friends, it wasn't so much about women being paid the same as men – some of the women were being paid more. It was more about, 'We're doing equal work and we all deserve to be compensated in the same way'.
