Jennifer Aniston was recently in Italy at the Giffoni Film Festival to receive a lifetime achievement award. Giffoni is one of Europe's largest film festivals for children and teens. At the event, one young person reportedly moved Jen to tears.

During a question and answer session, a young woman asked the actress if she has ever experienced waking up in the morning and not knowing who she was.

According to reports, the star wiped her eyes as she told the audience, "There are not enough fingers and toes in this entire room to count how many times that moment has happened to me.

"We're all human beings at the end of the day, whether we're a waitress or a baker or a student or whatever we are, at the end of the day you kind of hit walls and think I kind of can't go any farther. Or this is too much. My heart can't take it or the pain is too great, or am I good enough? Will I survive? And you just have to sort of somehow miraculously overcome. You just go, 'I can't, yes I can, yes you can."

She added, "And also know that your actors, your idols, your icons, whatever you call them, have all had that experience in their lives many, many times. There's nothing that separates us from you, because we all started at the same place. We all came out of nowhere."
