David Schwimmer Was Fed up With Jennifer Aniston’s Bad Habit

Being great friends with Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer decided to initiate ‘the talk’. Aniston’s bad habit of coming late to the set almost every day, not only bothered her co-stars but hampered the production as well. The shoot would have to wait for her to arrive, which Schwimmer thought was a little unfair to the other actors who reached the set on time. After the actor broke the ice, everyone else in the cast chimed in with Lisa Kudrow politely stating, “You’ve had bad luck getting to work.”
