Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston, who played one of the leading roles in the popular comedy series Friends for ten years , sometimes looks back on an episode. The actress likes to see scenes that she has already forgotten.

“The series simply makes you happy,” says fifty-year-old Aniston in conversation with Variety . “When it comes on television I sometimes watch too. I have forgotten most of it, so it’s great to rediscover it.”

Friends can currently be seen on the Netflix streaming service, among other things, and seems to have become no less popular on it. “I’m really impressed by that,” says Aniston, who will soon be featured in the new series The Morning Show . “That a whole new generation likes the series as much as it did in the 1990s when it was first broadcast is fantastic.”

Aniston, who played the role of Rachel Green, also says that she and her fellow players would have liked to make a Friends film. Much to the dissatisfaction of the fans, it never came.

“The producers of the series did not want it,” she says. “It is not that we did not want it, because it was a big wish of our fans. It would have been nice, but perhaps it is better that way. We will never know that.”
