In the new cover interview for the September issue of InStyle, the “Friends” star revealed that she cut off several people in her life over their refusal to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Aniston, 52, told the outlet that she is no longer close with some acquaintances over their vaccine beliefs.

“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 actress said.

She elaborated, saying that this included people who were part of her social “weekly routine.”

“I've just lost a few people in my weekly routine who have refused or did not disclose [whether or not they had been vaccinated], and it was unfortunate,” she explained.

She was also outspoken about what she feels is everyone’s “obligation” to take the safety step of receiving the vaccine.

“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,” she said.

Aniston has previously spoken out about taking the coronavirus pandemic seriously. Last June, she shared a personal story of her friend dealing with COVID-19 and encouraged people to wear face masks.
