“Friends” fanatics hoping for a reunion of the beloved sitcom will be crying into their oversized Central Perk coffee cups when they hear what Jennifer Aniston has to say about the possibility of seeing Rachel, Ross, Phoebe, Monica, Chandler and Joey back together again.
Aniston joined her “Wanderlust” co-star Paul Rudd for “MTV First” to take Twitter questions from fans — one of whom happened to be film critic and entertainment journalist Ben Lyons, who got a little ribbing from the two stars as well as MTV News” Josh Horowitz for not asking the question himself, before the team got to his question: “What will we see first? A “Clueless” or “Friends” reunion?”
The actress” reaction was slightly flustered but swift. “No, there will be none,” she said. “I don’t think so. … Wouldn’t that be weird? I would be like, “Oh god, why did they do that?” ”
Rudd also answered in the negative regarding a reunion of the beloved “90s teen flick, crushing the hearts of fans who may be wondering what became of Cher (Alicia Silverstone) and Josh’s (Rudd) relationship. “Well, you know, “Clueless” was “Emma,” ” Rudd said of the movie’s literary inspiration, which had no sequel. “So I don’t know what you”d do.”
The comely pair also told MTV News that they wouldn’t be a good fit for the commune lifestyle their “Wanderlust” characters are thrust into in the film, which hits theaters Friday.
“I don’t think I could exist realistically in that kind of setting,” Aniston told MTV News. “But there’s a version of that groups of friends in close proximity [and] in my early 20s, I had that. Where you kind of showed up at each other’s houses — very similar to the friendship show.”
One particular element of commune living does not appeal to Aniston and that is the, um, sharing of partners. “I don’t think that’s an end-well situation,” she said. “But there are a lot of people who do it.”
Always quick to the joke, Rudd added, “A lot of them live in Paris.”
