Just when you thought you had come to terms with the idea that a Friends reunion was totally off the cards, Jennifer Aniston reignites hopes that the gang will get back together again.
The actor appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday for Ellen's 60th birthday special.
During the conversation, the Friends star reminisced about meeting Ellen and joked about rumours in the 90's that she was gay.
But then, Ellen said:
Y'all should do a Friends reunion.
I know people keep asking that.
Is it even in the realm of possibility?
Jennifer Aniston teased:
Anything is a possibility.
I mean, George Clooney got married.
The conversation marks possibly the first time the star has opened up to the idea of a reunion.
When posed the question in 2016 by Lorraine Kelly on ITV, Jennifer explained why a reunion would probably never happen. She said:
I don't know what we would do.
I think that period of time was sort of nostalgic, you know.
There's something about a time where our faces weren't shoved into cell phones and we weren't, like, checking Facebooks and Instagrams, and we were in a room together — or a coffee shop together — and we were talking…
And then, in 2017, Jennifer told Ariana Huffington in an interview that if Friends happened today, everyone in Central Perk would be staring at their phones.
Now you have a computer, a television, and a phone. There's no room.
We were jokingly saying that if Friends was created today, you would have a coffee shop full of people that were just staring into iPhones. There would be no actual episodes or conversations
And as little as three days ago, fellow Friends cast member David Schwimmer said on the Megan Kelly Today that he doubted a reunion would take place.
And as if that wasn’t enough, even Gunther spoke out against the idea it on Good Morning Britain, calling the idea tragic. James Michael Tyler who played the character said:
Would you really want to watch a show about people in their forties who are still struggling as much as the Friends were?
But with 90’s sitcoms making a comeback left, right and centre; Will & Grace, Full House and Rosanne to name a few - could we soon see Rachel, Ross, Phoebe, Chandler, Monica and Joey on the sofa’s at the Central Perk again?
