Jennifer Aniston reveals why “the boys” are responsible for ‘Friends’ not returning

"The boys are a little less excited about it for some reason"

Jennifer Aniston had discussed the prospect of a Friends revival, and says that the three boys from the titular companions are preventing its return.

Speaking to James Corden on the Late Late Show, Aniston explained how Matt Le Blanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer are seemingly reluctant on reviving the iconic sitcom, which finished in 2004.

“Listen, the girls always say we would love to do it again, and the boys are a little less excited about it for some reason — I don’t know,” she explained.


“And so, we’ve decided that we’ll just do … a remake of The Golden Girls in 40 years.”

Although all three are yet to respond to Aniston’s comments, LeBlanc explained why he didn’t favour the show’s return earlier this year.

“I understand that people really want to see that reunion,” he said, “but that show was about a finite period in those characters lives, between 20 and 30.”

LeBlanc – who played fan favourite Joey Tribbiani – added: “To see what those characters are doing now, I think it’s almost a case of that the book is better than the movie. Everyone’s imagination of what they’re doing now is better.”


“I don’t think anyone wants to see Joey at his colonoscopy. I think it’s better for people to just leave it.”

Schwimmer made headlines earlier this year when he went viral for responding to reports that Blackpool Police are hunting for suspect who ‘looks like Ross from Friends‘.

Meanwhile, Netflix confirmed last week that Friends will remain on the streaming platform amid fears that it could be taken off at the end of 2018.
