Jennifer Aniston will never reprise her role as Rachel Green, it has been reported.
Is said to be keen to earn respect as a movie actress, Jennifer Aniston has put to rest rumors on "Friends" reunion by refusing to reprise her role as Rachel Green on the possible TV special or movie version of the hit show if there's any.
"There have been whispers of a Friends movie for a while now, especially with the "Sex and the City" film finally getting the go-ahead," a source revealed. "But it can't happen without Jen and she thinks 'Friends' has had it's time and she should move on with her film career."
Further the source explained, "I think if they were given a chance the rest of the cast would probably go for it but Jen sees playing Rachel again - even in a film - as going back, not moving forward. She wants to earn respect as a movie actress in her own right and take on more seriously roles to stretch her acting ability. She sees making a Friends movie as a failure on her part."
Aniston played the role of Rachel Green in "Friends" from 1994 until the show ended in 2004. The program was very successful and she, along with her co-stars, including Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer, and Lisa Kudrow, gained wide renown among television viewers.
