‘Friends’ Creator Shuts Down Reunion Rumours After Jennifer Aniston Welcomes The Possibility

Jennifer Aniston didn’t mean to get everyone’s hopes up about a possible “Friends” reunion, now that the show’s creator is shutting it all down.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Marta Kauffman was asked about the possibility of a reunion and said, “Nope.”

“Why mess up a good thing? We wouldn’t want a reunion to disappoint fans.”

At the premiere of her new comedy with Adam Sandler, “Murder Mystery” earlier this week, Aniston spoke with ET’s Kevin Frazier, who asked her about her recent revelation that she’d be happy to be a part of a reunion.

The remark was made when Aniston joined Ellen DeGeneres last week, and the actress — who has long evaded or outright shut down rumours and speculation about the topic — said she and her former co-stars “would do it.”

So why the change of heart?

“Well, ‘no’ was getting me nowhere, and ‘maybe’ was getting me nowhere. So I thought I’d try ‘yes.’ See what would happen,” Aniston told ET outside the premiere at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood, California, on Monday. “Sorry!”

So, when asked point blank about whether or not she and her former co-stars — including Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc — might be getting together for the long-awaited reunion, Aniston once again said, “Anything could happen.”

“I have no idea though,” she added quickly. “There’s no plans in the immediate future.”

So should fans get over it already? Aniston shrugged and suggested, “Or stay excited! And possibly something will happen?”

It’s a safe bet that fans will, in fact, stay excited and continue to hold out hope for (and ask questions about) the potential for a reunion for years to come.
