Murder Mystery 2 star Jennifer Aniston has opened up about feeling grateful for the current chapter of her life following 'ebbs and flows'. Speaking to Access Hollywood, the Friends actor said that she's 'feeling really great about every single thing' at the moment.

In a new interview alongside her co-star Adam Sandler, the 54-year-old explained what she meant by previous comments describing her current phase of life as 'Phoenix Rising'.

"I feel like I've risen out of some ashes," Aniston explained. "But I think we always have moments of, you know, ups and downs and ebbs and flows.

"And it just feels like that kind of period right now is feeling really great about every single thing. I'm very grateful."

Murder Mystery 2 sees Aniston and Sandler (Nick and Audrey Spitz) join forces as they head to Paris to solve another case - four years after the original film.

On her physically challenging role in the whodunit, she said: “I had a back injury about three years ago and it got really p****d off when I was in the harness. It was literally the last thing I shot. It was one of those things where you wake up the next day or two days later and you’re like, ‘Wow, that got bad.’”

The official synopsis reads: "Full-time detectives Nick and Audrey are struggling to get their private eye agency off the ground. They find themselves at the centre of international abduction when their friend Maharaja, is kidnapped at his own lavish wedding."

The actor said about her co-star and friend of 30 years Adam: "I very much love to take care of him. He's so concerned with taking care of everybody else, which he really does, and he doesn't take care of himself. I'm sorry for calling you out on national television, but you have to know this."

The Morning Show star told PEOPLE in 2021: "I have a job that I love, I have people in my life who are everything to me, and I have beautiful dogs. I'm just a very fortunate and blessed human being."

The actress explained: "Self-awareness is key. I've really gotten a lot out of therapy. Just being a public person, there's a lot of amazing things that come with that. But there's also a lot of tough stuff, because we're only human, and we tend to walk around with bulls-eyes on our heads.

"Sometimes you can't help family members or people sending stuff over going, 'What is this? You're having a baby? Are you getting married?' It's like, 'Oh, good gosh, when and how many years will it take for you to ignore that silliness?'"

Murder Mystery 2 is streaming from Friday, March 31 on Netflix.
