Kudrow not eager for Friends reunion

Lisa Kudrow thinks its “sweet” that her former co-stars still try to meet up.

The 51-year-old actress is best known for playing Phoebe Buffay in the hit sitcom which ran from 1994 until 2004. Rumours and hopes of a reunion have surrounded the stars of the show ever since, but Lisa doesn’t have high hopes for it happening.

“I think we would really want Marta [Kauffman] and David [Crane]. If something would happen, they would be the ones to write it, and let’s face it — they’re busy,” she told Vulture regarding the show’s creators. “So I don’t know how or when [it would happen]. And then also, what’s that going to be about? Menopause and midlife crisis? I’m not eager to see that.”

Since the show ended, Lisa has stayed in touch to some extent with all her former castmates, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc. But she added that the fact they can’t find time to get together socially doesn’t bode well for them all being in one place to bring the show back.

“The six of us can’t even meet for dinner. We’re trying, but we don’t all live in the same state. We don’t have the same work schedule anymore,” she explained. “We are constantly trying to — ‘Wait, so when are you in town?’ It’s crazy. But it’s sweet that we’re trying, isn’t it?”

Lisa isn’t the only star of the show to speak about their former alter ego recently. Matt also reflected on the series during a chat with British magazine Shortlist and where his character Joey Tribbiani would be right now in his life.

“Hopefully he’s happy. Making money as an actor somewhere in Hollywood – that’s where we left him," he said."Yeah, that’s probably what he’s doing."
