The Emmy Awards are just around the corner, but sad news for “Friends” fans: Jennifer Aniston won’t be in attendance.
The actress confirmed she is skipping out on this year’s Emmys, scheduled for this Sunday, due to her caution surrounding the coronavirus.
“No, I will not be going,” Aniston announced on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Monday.
