Jennifer Aniston says her fiancé Justin Theroux can pull off a great prank, and if that's the case, Aniston should start taking notes.
The actress tried to scare Ellen DeGeneres backstage while taping Thursday's episode of "Ellen," and failed miserably.
The idea was for Aniston to jump out from a doorway as DeGeneres meandered down the hall. But instead of frightening the talk show host, Aniston just sounded scared herself.
It was so bad that DeGeneres inquired during Thursday's sitdown, "had you not scared anyone before?"
As it turns out, Aniston doesn't do the scaring in her house.
"[Theroux] does that to me. He calls it trickery," Aniston said. "He's constantly hiding behind drapes, and I'm constantly scared. It doesn't get old on me."
The pair also touched on the recent rumors of a "Friends" reunion, which co-creator Marta Kauffman brought to an abrupt end Wednesday when she said it was never going to happen.
While DeGeneres tried to take responsibility for the gossip of a reunion, Aniston thought it might've had a different source.
"Did Matthew Perry start that?" she joked.
