American actor Matt LeBlanc has revealed that Friends reunion will not happen.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, the 46-year-old actor, well-known for his role as Joey Tribbiani on the hit NBC sitcom, said he is not tired of hearing about the show's reunion rumours.

In the series, LeBlanc was seen with Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer, which ran for ten years ending in 2004.

"I'm not tired of getting asked that question at all. "Friends" was probably the greatest 10 years of my life. I'd be hard-pressed to find something that matches that in terms of success and just sheer fun. So anything that harks back to that has a soft spot in my heart," he said.

"As far as a reunion project, that's just not in the cards. I think that show was about a finite period in your life -- after college and before you start your family where your friends are your family -- and that's what that show was about.

"So to go beyond that doesn't feel like you'd do justice to that. I liken it to that saying that the book is always better than the movie. I think it's best to imagine what those characters are doing now versus to see those characters. No one wants to see us in our 40s (laughs). Joey's still struggling as an actor. It'd just be sad," LeBlanc added.

In April, Cox, who played Monica Geller in the show, told David Letterman that a reunion is far from reality.

Meanwhile, a fake reunion poster announcing a ten-year-anniversary episode has been doing the rounds in social media since sometime.
