Jennifer Aniston Dabs Her Eyes During James Burrows Tribute: See the Video, GIF

The feels of a Friend. Hollywood superstar Jennifer Aniston was captured getting uber emotional from her seat during the filming of NBC’s special tribute to TV director James Burrows, which aired on Sunday, February 21.

Aniston, 47, was clearly moved during the beloved TV director’s speech, delivered last month inside West Hollywood hot spot Sunset Tower. Photos showed the star picking up a napkin to gently dab at her tear-filled eyes, while Matt LeBlanc, seated to her right, listened to Burrows with a proud smile.

The honoree of the evening, 75, directed 15 episodes of the smash ’90s sitcom including the pilot. Evidently, he played a pivotal role in launching the careers of Aniston (Rachel), LeBlanc (Joey), Courteney Cox (Monica), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe), David Schwimmer (Ross) and Matthew Perry (Chandler).
