The Phoebe Buffay depicter says, 'There was never a 'Friends' movie. Ever,' in response to the 'Friends' reunion rumor.
Fans have long been expecting the reunion of "Friends" cast ever since the NBC sitcom ended its final season in 2004. Thus, when an image of the iconic orange couch from Central Perk with the words, "Friends. The One With The Reunion. Thanksgiving 2014," hit the web, it raised people's hope even more. A clarification on the report is now provided by Lisa Kudrow.
In an interview with CNN, Kudrow, who starred as Phoebe Buffay on the series, addresses the "Friends" movie rumor. "Well, I knew there wasn't ever a movie. There was never a 'Friends' movie. Ever. So I've always known it's not happening," the 49-year-old actress says. She admits that she herself was even fooled by the teaser image that surfaced online last April.
"So I've always known it's not happening. But with this last rumor someone came up with a great graphic with the couch and it looked like a real teaser and I went, 'Wait!'," the "Web Theraphy" star said.
" 'Wait a minute, was I not invited? Oh my God, maybe there is one and I wasn't asked to do it.' I even had a moment where I believed it because everything around it looked real. It was a good setup."
Kudrow is not the only "Friends" alumna who dismisses the false report. Back in April 2012, Matt LeBlanc told Entertainment Weekly, "Everyone's going to have different vision of what those characters are like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people."
A few months later, Matthew Perry gave a response to the said image on his Twitter account. "There is zero truth to this rumor," the Chandler Bing depicter tweeted.
