Steve Carrell, Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston speak during an Apple product launch event on March 25, 2019, in Cupertino, California.

(CNN) - Jennifer Aniston is opening up about her co-star Steve Carell and the effect he has on people.

"He's just better with age," she said about her co-star on Apple's yet-to-be-released series, '"The Morning Show."

"He's like a silver fox now," Aniston, 50, said of the 56-year-old. "He just came in and no one expected -- everybody was so cute, and he's so shy and fantastic."

The actress dished on 'The Talk' on Friday and said everyone on the set of her new show has a crush on him.

In addition to Aniston and Carell, actress Reese Witherspoon is also part of the cast of '"The Morning Show."

The show pulls back the curtain on "the power dynamics between men and women in the high-stakes world of morning news shows," according to Witherspoon. She said the show's release date will fall be 2019.

The series will air on Apple TV+, a new streaming service featuring "original shows and movies across every genre," according to Apple, also coming this fall.

Aniston, who marks her return to TV with the project, said it will tackle the conversation people are "a little too afraid to have unless they are behind closed doors."

CNN's Chief Media Correspondent Brian Stelter is a consultant on the show.
