Jennifer Aniston's Feelings About Possible 'Friends' Reunion Break Our Heart

If you miss the witty banter of the coffee-swilling singles who spent hours inside Central Perk, we've got some disappointing but understandable news: Jennifer Aniston recently explained why a Friends reunion would never work, and while her reasoning makes sense, it's pretty sad at the same time. 


The star who spawned a million haircuts as the loveable Rachel Green sat down with Lorraine Kelly, host of ITV's Lorraine, and shared why the show, which ended in 2004, just couldn't work today. Take a listen. 


Sorry, Friends fans, Aniston has a point, especially when she says, "... there was something about a time where our faces weren't stuffed into cell phones. We weren't checking Facebooks and Instagrams. We were in a room together, in a coffee shop together. We were talking, having conversations. We have lost that."

Wow. Sadly, she's right. Even when friends go out to lunch or dinner their phones are never far from reach. And people think nothing of checking an email or responding to a text as you're chatting. You see it with everyone from tweens to octogenarians.

But, still, wouldn't it be fun to see Ross and Rachel's daughter as well as Monica and Chandler's twins? A gal can dream!

But, as the Cake star points out, even if you're missing Monica, Chandler, Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, and Joey, they're always "there for you" somewhere around the dial just waiting to brighten your day. 

"It's comfort food and it makes them feel better when they're feeling down when they want to distract themselves, because it is always on!" Aniston said. "You can pretty much find it anywhere!"

But just because the actress won't be reuniting with her Friends castmates any time soon, that doesn't mean she's opposed to returning to the small screen. Aniston fans will delight in what she has to say to Chelsea Handler in this Chelsea clip. 

We have to agree when she says, "Television is where it's at." Look at how many amazing shows have come out on Netflix and Amazon Prime as well as premiere and network stations. 

So, all hope is not lost. You might see Aniston back in your living room before you know it. Here's hoping!
