Jennifer Aniston Nixes ‘Friends’ Reunion
By Breeanna Hare, CNN
(CNN) — Cast reunions of some form or another have become standard these days, but don’t hold your breath for “Friends” to be the latest.
Star Jennifer Aniston, who played Rachel Green on the classic NBC show from 1994 to 2004, has said she doesn’t think it’s in the cards.
“No, there will be none. I don’t think so,” she told MTV of the thought of Rachel, Ross, Monica, Phoebe, Joey and Chandler resurfacing once again. “Wouldn’t that be weird? I would be like, ‘Oh, God, why did they do that?'”
And she’s not the only “Friend” who feels that way.
The Hollywood Reporter pointed out in an interview with the 43-year-old actress that her former co-star Matt LeBlanc, who played Joey on the long-running series, has said that he can’t see “Friends” going the “Sex and the City” route and winding up in movie theaters.
Aniston herself told THR that she “can’t imagine how you would do it, unless you did it years from now. Then it would be, ‘who are these guys? What are we watching?’…’Friends’ is in your living room, ‘Friends’ is not in a movie theater. It doesn’t make sense to me. I think it would be going against its authentic self.”
(Studio Warner Bros. tells CNN that there isn’t a “Friends” movie in the works anyway.)
But let’s say, just for kicks, that “Friends” did let us peek into the future lives of the characters we came to know so well. If that were to ever happen, Aniston thinks we’d see Ross and Rachel building a larger family.
“They’re absolutely, 100 percent together,” Aniston told THR. “They have more kids! He’s probably still working, and hopefully they’re still hanging out somewhere. It would be really upsetting if they weren’t, it would bum me out.”
