Although “Friends” creator Marta Kauffman has said time and again that a reboot of the beloved sitcom isn’t going to happen, Jennifer Aniston is now saying she would jump at the chance to step back into Rachel Green’s Ralph Lauren shoes.
In a new cover story for InStyle magazine, the superstar said that even before “Friends” left the air, fans wanted to know if it would eventually get the reboot treatment.
“Before that show ended, people were asking if we were coming back,” Aniston said, adding that she and her co-stars talk about getting the gang back together.
“Courteney [Cox] and Lisa [Kudrow] and I talk about it. I fantasize about it,” she said. “It really was the greatest job I ever had.”
Aniston added that she’s not sure what form a modern-day “Friends” would take, but acknowledge that now is the age of reboots on TV.
“I don’t know what it would look like today, but you never know. So many shows are being successfully rebooted. I know Matt LeBlanc doesn’t want to be asked that question anymore. But maybe we could talk him into it,” the actress said. “Or we just give it some time and then Lisa, Courteney, and I could reboot ‘The Golden Girls’ and spend our last years together on wicker furniture,” Aniston quipped.
Jen, Courteney and Lisa might have to get that “Golden Girls”-inspired project going themselves, though.
Co-creator David Crane recently told TheWrap that a “Friends” reboot is “never happening. Never. We did it! It’s done.” Kauffman told TheWrap that “the reason for that has to do with the story was about a time in your life when your friends are your family. So once you start having families of your own, it is no longer that time of your life.”
Aniston has plenty of upcoming projects in the works to keep her occupied, though, including the movie “Dumplin'” and an Apple series about morning TV with Reese Witherspoon.
