‘Friends’ reunion highly unlikely, says Lisa Kudrow
Lisa Kudrow has said that a Friends reunion is highly unlikely to ever happen.
The actress played Phoebe Buffay in the hit sitcom throughout its run, which ended in 2004. Since then there has been regular speculation over a potential movie follow-up. But she has now apparently ruled the possibility out.
Kudrow told E! Online: “I don’t think it will ever happen whether any of us want it to happen or not. I don’t think any of us would do it unless [show creators] David Crane and Marta Kauffman wrote it and I don’t know how they could do it.”
However, she did suggest that a spoof version of the show could be a success in the future, adding: “The Brady Bunch Movie was hilarious because it was a spoof. I can’t wait from 10, 20 years from now to see the younger actors. I think that will be really fun.”
Matt LeBlanc, who played Joey Tribbiani, last week told a similar story, saying: “Yeah, [a reunion] probably won’t happen. There’s no plans for anything like that. Everyone seems to be talking about that these days, but nope, no irons in the fire there.”
