Jen Aniston's 'Friends' Reunion Response Comforts Ross & Rachel Fans

friendsI wonder if Jennifer Aniston hates being asked about a possible Friends reunion. Does she hold back the eye-rolls every time some reporter tries to get her to talk about going back to Central Perk to hang with the gang? Probably. I would if I were her.

That saaaaaid, I'm absolutely thrilled that there are some journalists out there with enough gumption to keep asking Jen what she thinks about reuniting with her Friends. With each inquiry, there's new hope for fans. Will she share something this time that she hasn't before? Will she burst into happy tears and spill her guts about the Friends movie script she just finished reading?

That's what MTV hoped when they asked Jen and Wanderlust co-star, Paul Rudd, which reunion fans would see first: Clueless or Friends?


Jen responded: "No, there will be none. I don't think so. Wouldn't that be weird? I would be like, 'Oh, God, why did they do that?'"

That's not to say, though, that Jen doesn't think about what Ross and Rachel would be up to these days. She told The Hollywood Reporter:

They’re absolutely, 100 percent together. They have more kids! He’s probably still working, and hopefully they’re still hanging out somewhere. It would be really upsetting if they weren’t; it would bum me out.

I guess since we can't look forward to camping out in front of theaters for a two-hour movie about our favorite six friends, we can take solace in the fact that somewhere out there in Fictionland, Ross and Rachel are happily married and spawning little Gellar-Greens. Emma would be, like, 10 or 12 by now and I bet she's got at least two other siblings at this point. I wonder if they all say "wanted" strangely like their dad and compulsively move their hair out of their face like their mom.

I might be over-thinking this too much. But then again, the Friends cast is closer to me than family.

We'll have to wait a few months before another reporter asks Jen about a Friends reunion and then we can start this whole, glorious, not repetitive-whatsoever process over again. Bad for Jen, awesome for us.

Would you like to see a Friends reunion?
