Jennifer Aniston, who’s just terrific, is feeling nostalgic. She tells InStyle magazine she’s up for a “Friends” reunion or reboot. Aniston says:
“Before that show ended, people were asking if we were coming back. Courteney [Cox] and Lisa [Kudrow] and I talk about it. I fantasize about it. It really was the greatest job I ever had. I don’t know what it would look like today, but you never know. So many shows are being successfully rebooted. I know Matt LeBlanc doesn’t want to be asked that question anymore. But maybe we could talk him into it. Or we 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.”
“Friends” is now more popular than ever in reruns thanks to their deal on Nickelodeon. And imagine a reboot two decades later. All the kids are college age– Phoebe’s triplets, Ross’s kids, etc. Plus there were probably more after the show went off the air. They should do it as a one hour comedy-drama.
As for Aniston: she jokes about the tabloids, her “being pregnant three times a year,” and so on. I’ll say this about Jennifer Aniston– every time I’ve seen her or talked to her she’s been one of the most gracious, “real” actors. I think she has a terrific sense of comic timing– I wish she’d do a series where she can be acerbic and sexy. We need to see her on a weekly basis!
