Apparently Thanksgiving presents are a thing for Jennifer Aniston! The 47-year-old actress visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Wednesday, where she opened up about a very special surprise she got from her husband, Justin Theroux, on Turkey Day.
“My husband, who’s been away for almost a year surprised me on Thanksgiving, came home from Germany,” she told DeGeneres.
She explained that every year they host a Friendsgiving for fellow “orphans,” but that this year Theroux told her that his schedule was too booked to make it.
“Everyone came to the house and no one really understood that Justin was not going to be there. You just saw everyone’s face start to fall,” she explained. “The whole room was depressed. I was like, ‘Guys, I’m here!’”
Thankfully, Theroux made the perfect cameo.
“Everyone was just very somber and next thing you know, turkey walks in, and there was another turkey holding that turkey and that was my hubby,” she quipped.
“I [wrote] it at first, really, just for myself. I had kind of hit a wall,” she said. “I was pretty raw at the time. We had just come back from vacation. My mother, she passed.”
So Aniston penned the piece, and she still has some inspirational words for other women out there.
“We as women do a lot of incredible things in this world other than just procreate. And not that that is not [incredible], but they just get boxed in. They love the narrative, they love the story,” she said. “We have to stop listening to [tabloids]. And we have to stop buying them. Because we have to support each other, especially at this time… it’s up to us, what makes us happy and fulfilled.”
