Jennifer Aniston has once again ruled out the possibility of a Friends reunion and revealed that the reason why the show will not work in today's modern world. In an interview with ITV, the actress looked back and spoke of her time on the beloved NBC series.
The Emmy-winning actress, who played Rachel Green in the series, said that Friends being set in the pre-cellphone era is the core of its nostalgic appeal. The 47-year-old noted, "I don't know what we would do. I think that period of time was sort of nostalgic, you know?"
"I think people have such affection for it, even though it was only 12 years ago since it ended ... there was something about a time where our faces weren't shoved into cellphones and we weren't, like, checking Facebooks and Instagram, and we were in a room together, or at a coffee shop together, and we were talking ... having conversations. And we've lost that."
However, The Horrible Bosses actress admitted that the show has become a "comfort food" for people. "Not only was it a gift for us, but it's something people have been able to carry with them. It's comfort food and it makes them feel better when they are feeling down, when they want to distract themselves," she continued,.
The popular NBC sitcom's cast included stars such as Courteney Cox (Monica Geller), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe Buffay), Matt LeBlanc (Joey Tribbiani), Matthew Perry (Chandler Bing) and David Schwimmer (Ross Geller). The sitcom aired for 10 seasons between 1994 and 2004.
