Ellen DeGeneres has been a well-known TV face in the USA since the 1980s. And her successful talk format “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” has been around for almost two decades. But now the 64-year-old is giving up the show – with a special guest.

Jennifer Aniston will be the final guest on the Ellen DeGeneres talk show. This is reported by the “People” magazine, citing the production of the show. Singers Pink and Billie Eilish will also be guests on the final episode of the show, which airs May 26.

It’s probably no coincidence that Aniston attends The Ellen DeGeneres Show when the hostess last performed. The “Friends” star was also DeGeneres’ first guest 19 years ago. According to US media reports, the 53-year-old actress was on the talk show a total of 20 times.

Other guests speaking with DeGeneres ahead of the show’s finale include Oprah Winfrey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Mila Kunis, Kate McKinnon, Justin Timberlake, Keith Urban, Zac Efron, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Luke Bryan, according to the Twitter video , Kerry Washington, Brad Paisley and Bruno Mars.

Getting started as a stand-up comedian

Ellen DeGeneres announced the end of her show after season 19 in May 2021. Previously there had been reports that employees of the show should have complained about difficult working conditions. At the time, however, the presenter told The Hollywood Reporter that the scandal was not the reason for the decision.

DeGeneres, now 64, began her career as a stand-up comedian. In the 1980s, she was seen more often in comedy formats and talk shows on US television. She also worked as an actress, first in the sitcom “Open House” and later in the series “Ellen”.

In 2003, her talk format “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” went on the air, which blossomed into a hit with audiences in the USA and is also broadcast in numerous other countries. DeGeneres came out as gay back in the ’90s. In 2008 she married her partner Portia de Rossi.
