In his upcoming book “Good Listen: Creating Memorable Conversations In Business And Life,” author and podcaster Joe Pardavila revealed the actress went out of her way to grant him an interview when he was just an intern at “Scott & Todd in the Morning” on 95.5 PLJ.
He recalled that, back in 1997, he was sent to track her down on the set of “Picture Perfect” for an exclusive interview. However, as he approached her trailer in Midtown Manhattan, her bodyguard immediately stopped him.
“He saw me and sensed what I was about to do. He made a beeline straight for me,” he alleged in his book.
“Holding up my radio mic, I said in my most soothing and innocent tone, ‘Hey, I only want to ask Jennifer a couple of questions, that’s all.’ The guard let me know that wasn’t going to happen. His tone was neither soothing nor innocent.”
However, Aniston, who had heard the commotion, came out and told him she couldn’t talk before hiding back in her trailer. With his tail between his legs, Pardavila returned back to the station.
However, “a couple of minutes later, Jennifer Aniston had her assistant call the front desk at PLJ to say Jennifer felt badly about what happened. Better yet, she’d be happy to do an interview with the morning show.”
