Jennifer Aniston attended a Harry Styles concert on Thursday — and witnessed a wardrobe malfunction. While the former One Direction member sang “Music for a Sushi Restaurant” to his Inglewood, Calif., audience, he dropped to his knees and split his pants.
After making a shocked face at the crowd, the singer, 28, covered the tear with his hands and good-naturedly rolled his eyes at his bandmates. Styles finished out the performance with a towel hiding the rip. Aniston was far from the only A-list audience member, with Kylie Jenner, Trevor Noah and Ellen DeGeneres also in attendance. However, Twitter users were quick to poke fun at the fact that Styles once admitted to crushing on the 53-year-old “Friends” alum.
“Harry’s first ever celebrity crush (jennifer aniston) is in the audience tonight and he F–KING RIPPED HIS PANTS in front of her,” one fan wrote. Another added, “If I were Harry, just thinking about ripping my pants in front of Jennifer Aniston would send me into early retirement.”

DeGeneres asked Styles about his “first celebrity crush” back in January 2020 during a rapid-fire interview. The Grammy winner paused for a moment before replying, “Probably Jennifer Aniston, I think.”
In August of the following year, Aniston made headlines when she wore the same Gucci suit for an InStyle cover that Styles rocked at the Brit Awards. “Just call me Harriet Styles,” the Golden Globe winner joked via Instagram Stories in 2021.
The “Morning Show” star also re-posted side-by-side snaps at the time showing her and Styles both wearing “Save the Drama for Your Mama” tees. Aniston famously sported the white shirt on a Season 10 episode of “Friends.” The “X Factor” alum later adopted the same style in a selfie with a fan.
The following month, Styles kicked off his “Love on Tour” shows, which will wrap up in July 2023. When the songwriter began the worldwide tour in September 2021, he was in a relationship with “Don’t Worry Darling” director Olivia Wilde.
