Jennifer Aniston just sat through another awkward interview as she continues to promote Season 2 of her hit series, The Morning Show.
The exchange occurred on UK breakfast program This Morning, on which Aniston and co-star Reese Witherspoon appeared via Zoom.
When discussing the pandemic and social distancing, interviewer Josie Gibson asked the Friends alum if she missed giving hugs to loved ones.
"Are you a hugger?" asked Gibson in her Bristolian accent.
Aniston clearly misheard the question as she replied, "Am I a hooker?" to which a mortified Gibson said, "Noooooo! I did not say that!"

After the clarification, Aniston confirmed, "Yes, I am a hugger. Sorry, I think there was a bit of translation error."
Witherspoon, who was in hysterics the entire time, then chimed in: "She is not a hooker."

This is the second time in as many weeks Aniston has had an awkward exchange on British television.
Last week, the actress was seemingly left unimpressed when The One Show presenter Jermaine Jenas presumed she was not a morning person after she revealed behind-the-scenes details from her Morning Show series.

"I got there at 5 in the morning and the hallways were quiet and people are just slowly waking up, and then all of a sudden, the train starts moving and it gets crazier and crazier. It's utter chaos," she said via Zoom.
Jenas, a former English soccer player, proceeded to interrupt Aniston mid-sentence, turning to Witherspoon to say, "Reese, I've got to be honest with you, Jennifer's pretty much sold it to me that she's not a morning person."
The remark took Aniston by surprise. "Did I sell that to you?'" she asked, seemingly uncomfortably, to which Jenas responded, "A little bit, a little bit."
"Did I get a good deal?" she appeared to snap back.
The exchange caused Witherspoon to let out an awkward laugh as Jenas tried to move the interview along by asking, "So, what about you, Reese?"
"No, I'm definitely a morning person," she replied. "Jen and I talk about this all the time. I'm the morning person and she's more of a night person."
