Matt LeBlanc Crushes Hopes Of A Friends Reunion

Celebs February 27, 2018 By Hugo

After a well-edited spoof trailer for the hit television series Friends went viral, social media went into meltdown, but according to Matt LeBlanc, an official Friends movie trailer won't be dropping anytime soon.

Speaking on Australian radio, the 50-year-old dismissed talk of a possible movie by stating that it's better to 'just leave it'.

"I don't think anybody wants to see Joey at his colonoscopy," he joked in an interview with Brisbane's 97.3FM. "I understand that people really want to see that reunion. But that show was about a finite period in these six characters' lives, between 20 and 30."

He also suggested that it would take a whole lot of convincing for the other five actors to get on board. "It's not any one person," he said. "I think it's better to just leave it."

Rising to fame as the jobbing actor Joey Tribbiani on the iconic NBC series, LeBlanc's career suffered a nosedive following the dismal ratings of the much-maligned spin-off, Joey, though the thespian has since gone onto resurrect his career as host of the global BBC series Top Gear. LeBlanc also earned his first Emmy nomination for playing an autobiographical version of himself in another BBC series called Episodes.

The five other lead actors have pretty much said the same thing as LeBlanc has in regards to a possible reunion.

David Schwimmer, who played Ross Gellar, said in a 2011 interview, "I really like how the show ended. I really love how it ended. I think it was kind of a perfect ending, and I can't see any good reason to revisit it."

In an interview with British television, Jennifer Aniston, who played Rachel Green, echoed Schwimmer's sentiments. "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 - and I think why people have such an affection for it - there was something about a time when our faces weren't shoved into cell phones and we weren't checking Facebook and Instagram.

"We were in a room together, or in a coffee shop together and we were talking. And we've lost that."

Do you agree with their opinions? Is it really better to leave it how it is? 

Or, could a movie adaptation actualy provide a better sendoff for one of TV's most beloved shows?
