Jennifer Aniston surprises nurse with $10000 gift

Jennifer Aniston has spoken about how she is dealing with lockdown during the coronavirus pandemic.

Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Aniston discussed what it has been like staying at home for three weeks.

“I’m a born agoraphobe,” she said. “This is kind of a dream – not a dream, it’s obviously a nightmare. But, for me personally, it’s not been that much of a challenge.

“The most challenging thing is watching news and trying to digest [everything] that’s going on out there.”

Aniston joked that her new “favourite thing in the world” is cleaning plates “because not only are you doing your dishes, but you’re washing your hands”.

On the show, Aniston also surprised a nurse who has been diagnosed with coronavirus, giving her a gift certificate worth $10,000 (roughly £8,100) so she can order food deliveries during the pandemic.
