Jennifer Aniston says the entire cast of Friends had dinner together at Courteney Cox’s house on Saturday, October 5. Yes, you read that correctly: All six cast members of Friends—Aniston, Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc, and Matthew Perry—together again.
Aniston revealed this during an interview with Howard Stern on Monday, October 7. “We just had dinner this week, on Saturday night,” she said. “The whole gang. Everyone was there.”
“Schwimmer was in town,” she continued. “We all happened to have a window of time, so we all got together.”
The actress, who played Rachel Green for 10 years on Friends, says “not one” person in the cast has ever annoyed her. “[It was] lightning in a bottle,” she said.
As for the dinner itself, Aniston says the gang “laughed so hard.” “We just laughed a lot,” she continued. “We all miss [Friends] every day. I would be nothing without it.”
This doesn’t necessarily mean a reboot of the series is in the cards, though. While Aniston has said on multiple occasions the cast would be down to get together again, they don’t want to ruin the legacy of the show.
“I really think there’s an idea that if there’s a reboot of the show, it won’t be even close to as good as what it was, so why do it?” Aniston told Stern. See this interview for yourself in the video, below:
A few Friends cast members have opened up in the past about why a reboot wouldn’t work. “I doubt it—I really doubt it,” Schwimmer said in a 2018 interview. “Look, the thing is, I just don’t know if I want to see all of us with crutches [and] walkers.” Kudrow expressed a similar sentiment: “They’re rebooting everything. I don’t know how that works with Friends, though. That was about people in their 20s, 30s,” she told Conan O’Brien. “The show isn’t about people in their 40s, 50s. And if we have the same problems, that’s just sad.”
