Matt LeBlanc Quotes About Friends Reunion

Matt LeBlanc Shuts Down Friends Reunion Rumors: "Old Friends? I Don't Think So"

After a fan-made trailer for a fake Friends movie went viral in January, buzz about a potential reunion or reboot of the hit sitcom began to bubble up. Would any of the show's stars ever return? It's looking more and more like a no.

Following in the footsteps of Lisa Kudrow, who told Conan O'Brien she doesn't "see [a reunion] happening," Matt LeBlanc shut down rumors of the cast reuniting for another season or movie while recently appearing on Steve Harvey's talk show. According to the 50-year-old Man With a Plan actor, seeing the characters navigate their 40s and 50s just wouldn't be the same.

"Like, Old Friends? Personally, I don't think so," said LeBlanc. "I've talked to the writers about it. That show was about a very finite period in your life, between 20 and 30, when you're out of school but your life hadn't really started yet and your friends are your family, and you're kind of finding your way. When that period is over, it's over."

LeBlanc, who played fan-favorite Joey Tribbiani, added that seeing his character's life today wouldn't be nearly as fun as watching it during the show's original run between 1994 and 2004.

"All the characters have gone their separate ways," he added. "I always have this standard go-to joke when people say, 'We want to see what Joey's doing now.' Nobody wants to see Joey at his colonoscopy! Nobody wants to see that."

Well, looks like we'll all just have to re-watch Friends for the hundredth time on Netflix this weekend.
