Jennifer Aniston is really trying to make a Golden Girls reboot happen. Not only that, but she wants to star in it alongside her Friends costars Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow. The actress, who is currently promoting her Netflix movie Dumplin', shared her genius idea in a recent appearance on The Late Late Show With James Corden.
"The girls always say we would love to do it again, and the boys are a little less excited about it for some reason," Aniston said about the possibility of a Friends reunion. "So we've decided that, and I've said this before, we'll just do a remake of the Golden Girls in like 40 years. Just trying to go out on wicker chairs." On the Golden Girls character she would portray, Aniston answered Betty White's Rose, but then changed her mind and said the actresses should just portray older versions of their Friends characters.
Like she said, this isn't the first time Aniston has presented the idea, and she previously brought it up in an interview with InStyle earlier this year. She said, "I fantasize about it. It really was the greatest job I ever had. I don't know what it would look like today, but you never know." Adding, "So many shows are being successfully rebooted."
Corden also brought up the recent rumor that Friends would be leaving Netflix in 2019. Following the huge public outcry, Netflix paid $100 million to continue licensing the show. "It's crazy," Aniston said. "I didn't know that rumor was that it was taken away, so this is all news to me!"
