Jennifer Aniston Shatters All Hope for a “Friends” Reunion Movie
It wouldn't make sense, it was made for TV, star says in new interview
It's been years that fans have been speculating about the possibility of ever seeing a “Friends” movie on the big screen, one that would pick up where the highly successful series left off. As Jennifer Aniston sees it, it is not going to happen.As is customary with all good things that come to an end, with “Friends” too, millions of fans from all over the world were left begging for more.
The series ended with a bang, leaving the door open for a comeback but, so far, it hasn't happened.
According to Jen, who played Rachel on the series, you shouldn't hold your breath for it either. Chances of a movie being made are slim to none, she says in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
“I can’t imagine how you would do it, unless you did it years from now,” Aniston says of the possibility of making “Friends” into a feature film.
“Then it would be: 'Who are these guys? What are we watching?' I can’t imagine what that would be. It’s not normal,” she adds.
The series was made for TV and trying to transfer it to the big screen would be a huge mistake.
“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,” the actress explains.
However, just for the sake of conversation, Aniston says she does have moments when she thinks about what would have happened next to the very close six friends, Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Chandler, Joey and Ross.
She believes Rachel and Ross would still be together, parents to more than one kid.
“They’re absolutely, 100 percent together. 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,” says the gorgeous actress.
In the same interview, she also reveals that Rachel remains one of her favorite characters to date – even though she hated her trademark hair, which came to be known as “The Rachel” back then – and that she basically owes everything to her and the show, “Friends.”
