While the cast - minus Matthew Perry - came together past year to honor the show's director James Burrows, Kudrow's statement echoes that of many other key Friends players, including co-creator Marta Kauffman, who has bluntly stated, "Reunions generally suck".
Could we be anymore excited? When asked by co-host Savannah Guthrie if she thought the group would every get back together, Kudrow replied, "Me, personally? No". "We have convened", Lisa told Savannah Guthrie when she appeared on Today on February 28 to promote her new movie Table 19. Privately. For dinner. It was really fun!
Commenting on whether the old Friends crew - Matt LeBlanc, Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer and Courteney Cox - discussed a comeback of the NBC show, which ended in 2004, Lisa was, at first, aloof... "It was really fun!"
In fact, she gave details about how the group of friends "had such a good time". "It was hilarious. We were laughing nonstop". "They connected with us".
The hugely popular United States sitcom aired for ten seasons from 1994 to 2004, with speculation about a potential reunion persisting ever since.
While that dinner was a private affair, is it possible the cast could be filming an actual reunion that would air on TV?
Admitting that it was "mean" to tell us about a Friends reunion none of us could see, Lisa was then asked if there's any chance for a real one, on our TV screens. "What would it be about?" Think about it. The thing we liked best about the show was that they were 20-somethings and they were their own family. "Now, they all have families, so what are we going to watch?"
Anything, literally anything, Phoebe.
We would be watching Friends, Lisa.
