A reunion for the Friends gang at Central Perk? Save a seat on the big orange couch for Jennifer Aniston.
The former Rachel Green addresses the eternal question of a possible Friends revival in a new interview with InStyle, admitting that she does “fantasize” about the prospect of reuniting with her cast mates from NBC’s hit ’90s sitcom. “Courteney [Cox] and Lisa [Kudrow] and I talk about it,” she reveals. “I fantasize about it. It really was the greatest job I ever had.”
Aniston — who’s set to star with Reese Witherspoon in a morning-show drama series for Apple — admits she doesn’t know what a revamped Friends “would look like today, but you never know. So many shows are being successfully rebooted.” (It’d technically be a revival, not a reboot, since the original cast would be back… but who are we to argue with Jennifer Aniston?) But one of her former co-stars is still a staunch holdout, she says: “I know Matt LeBlanc doesn’t want to be asked [about a revival] anymore. But maybe we could talk him into it.”
And if a full Friends revival never comes to pass, Aniston has her eyes on rebooting another beloved TV sitcom: “We [could] just give it some time and then Lisa, Courteney and I could reboot The Golden Girls and spend our last years together on wicker furniture.” Hmmm… would they have to change the theme song to “Thank You for Being Friends,” though?
