Her Netflix movie costar Adam Sandler also reveals which major star he got to perform at his daughter's bat mitzvah.
While the late night host wasn't on the flight as Aniston, Courteney Cox and more of her besties made their way to Cabo for a surprise 50th birthday celebration, Jimmy's wife Molly McNearney was ... and he was the first person Molly texted when things got a little rocky.
"Well, it was one of those things where on the takeoff, on the taxi, we heard an explosion, which it sounded like a pothole if it was a car big enough to go over the Grand Canyon," Aniston explained on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Thursday night. "It was that loud,. Then everybody thought, well, that's weird."
Aniston explained she has a "real fear of flying" and even Cox -- whose dad was a pilot -- was concerned about the noise. The plane, however, still took off.
"Two hours in, the flight attendant comes over to me and says the pilots would like to talk to you," Jen continued. It was then she learned they had actually turned around, after some debris from a tire was found on the runway from which they left.
"Everybody starts texting all of a sudden their spouses and their children," said Aniston, "and I was like, what's going on?"
Kimmel admitted he was on Google, looking up "Can you land without a tire," before Aniston revealed his "loving response" to a text from his wife.
"This is the loving response Molly got when she says, 'Jimmy I love you, I love Jade and you've always been an incredible husband,'" said Jen, before Jimmy took her phone and showed his messages to the audience.
"I just signed up for tinder but I PROMISE not to activate it until we know what's what,'" read the text, which he sent with a shirtless photo. "This is my profile pic."
Jimmy added it was "trying to lighten the mood," before joking his dating life after joining the app has been "going great."
Explaining that he wanted "to do something special" for his daughter, he decided to text the Maroon 5 frontman. "I'm texting, 'Sorry to do this to you, my kid's getting bat mitvahed Saturday night. Would you mind coming and singing a few tunes, it would be incredible,'" Sandler said he asked.
"Then you see the dot dot dot immediately and then he writes, 'I can't say no to you, where. What songs do you want?' I was like, 'Oh god, this is really happening,'" he explained.
According to Sandler, Levine and bandmate James Valentine came and performed three songs for the celebration. "It was the coolest thing," said Adam, who added his daughter "hugged me so much" after Levine's appearance.
Deadpanned Jen: "You're a showoff."
