At last night's 24th Annual Beat the Odds Awards hosted by the Children's Defense Fund, Conan O'Brien revealed he had a close encounter with Jennifer Aniston earlier in the day after she finished taping a guest appearance on his show, Conan. "I actually walked in on her while she was putting her pants on," O’Brien tells InStyle. "Fortunately, I didn't time it perfectly, so she was safe." The TV host admitted he has yet to tell his wife, who was by his side at the charity event in Los Angeles: "I'm going to wait till she has a few drinks."

But this wasn't the first time he has wandered into Aniston's dressing room. "I've done this to her several times, so she's come to expect it. She actually accused me of having a peephole, and I said ‘I'm not going to say yes or no, it's more of a periscope.’ But, I will say that this is the third time I've done it," he shares. "It doesn't happen with Ed Asner, it doesn't happen with Tony Shalhoub, it only happens with Jennifer Aniston—that's it. I'm always like a nerdy kid with a crush [when I'm] around Jennifer Aniston. It's great; she's a great crush to have because my wife approves."
