Jennifer Aniston has denied a Friends reunion could be in the pipeline, claiming she had no idea about speculation the series would return.

The actress poured cold water on speculation that the stars of the '90s sitcom could be getting back together.

During an interview for The Ellen DeGeneres Show due to air tonight, the 44-year-old addressed the rumours circulating that characters Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, Ross, Joey and Rachel will be back in 2015.

“I’m responsible for the entire Friends reunion that’s going to happen. Or is it?” Ellen said, to which Jennifer responded, “Well, you’re hearing it here first… as am I. Did Matthew Perry [Chandler] start that? ‘Cause he's getting some good airtime on this show. I've been watching."

The series’ co-creator Marta Kauffman also denied the reports yesterday. She told Perez Hilton that the cast were too old to pull off the sitcom now.

“I'm going to clear this up - it's not happening! Friends was about that time in your life when your friends are your family and once you have a family, there's no need anymore," she fumed.

Jennifer played ditzy Rachel Green in the long-running show. Matthew, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Lisa Kudrow and Matt Le Blanc joined her on the series.

The actress also opened up about her home life with her fiancé Justin Theroux. The actor has a habit of playing practical jokes on her, which she just can't get used to.

"Well, he calls it trickery," she told Ellen. "But he’s constantly hiding behind drapes. And I’m constantly scared. It’s like it doesn’t get old on me."
