Jennifer Aniston says during the coronavirus pandemic, people have a "moral" obligation to share whether or not they've been vaccinated.

"There's still a large group of people who are anti-vaxxers or just don't listen to the facts. It's a real shame," the former "Friends" star said in an interview for InStyle's September issue, published Tuesday.

"I've just lost a few people in my weekly routine who have refused or did not disclose, and it was unfortunate," Aniston, 52, said.


The actor detailed the challenges she faced filming the Apple TV series "The Morning Show" amid the pandemic, saying the cast was "living in an alternate universe where COVID did not exist" while performing in front of the camera.

Aniston said people have a personal responsibility to be open about their vaccination status, telling the magazine, "I feel it's your moral and professional obligation to inform, since we're not all podded up and being tested every single day."

"It's tricky because everyone is entitled to their own opinion — but a lot of opinions don't feel based in anything except fear or propaganda."

While she's typically a CNN and cable news junkie, Aniston said she had to limit her daily TV intake the past year.

"I've really had to stop [keeping it on too much,]" she said. "We all went through news fatigue, panic fatigue, during the pandemic because we were hoping one day we would wake up and hear something hopeful, and all we got was more insanity."
