Jennifer Aniston reveals she once worked as a bike messenger in NYC before hitting it big as an actress on Friends
Jennifer Aniston is currently out on the promotional trail talking about the second season of her hit series The Morning Show.
During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Aniston, who plays news anchor Alex Levy on the drama, took a walk down memory lane and revealed one of jobs she had before she was able to make a living as an actress.
‘I was a bike messenger for a day in New York City,’ Aniston, who moved from Los Angeles to New York City as a child, confessed during the remote interview.
Confession: Jennifer Aniston, 52, was beaming with laughter when she revealed she was a bike messenger for one day when she lived in New York City before her breakout role on Friends
‘I worked at an advertising agency after school. My mom actually worked there,’ the 52-year-old explained.
‘So to make extra money, I would do odd jobs. And one day their bike messenger just didn’t show up.’
Aniston went on to talk about the job, with the staff asking her if she could ride a bike, which she said she could.
However, she would end up being totally unprepared to have to navigate around the bustling and oftentimes chaotic streets of Manhattan.

‘Now mind you, in Central Park I can ride a bike, I mean, with soft areas to land,’ she shared, adding, ‘But so I just boldly said yes and they gave me this bag, and they put all these cylinders in this bag.’
The Friends star went on to insinuate just how dangerous her one day as a bike messenger would be.
‘In my brain, I don’t know how I survived the day, because it was — to be on Fifth Avenue with traffic, and all that I was holding,’ she recalled.
‘I think I might have gotten into a cab just to finish the day.’
