Lisa Kudrow might be ready for round two of Romy and Michele!
ET's Katie Krause caught up with the 53-year-old actress at The UCLA Open Mind Gala at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, where she opened up about a possible sequel to Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, nearly 20 years after the film was released.
"I mean, [the idea was brought up] a long time ago," Kudrow shared. "Robin Schiff, who wrote and produced the original, had a fantastic idea: Romy and Michele Get Divorced."
"Mira is up for it, sure!" she continued. "She looks so much better than I do, so I'm not sure that that would be fun for me, but yeah, [I'd consider it]."
While both actresses are ready to jump back into character, Kudrow said it's not up to just them. "They're such smart business people at the studios, they know why they're not doing it," she said.
As for reviving her other iconic character, Friends' Phoebe Buffay, the actress isn't so up for the idea.
"No, no, [I wouldn't do a Phoebe spin-off]," she laughed. "Phoebe works with the other people, for sure."
For now, Kudrow is focusing her efforts in increasing awareness for mental illness, something close to her heart.
"We all have people in our lives who have struggled or are struggling with some form of like a mental illness and there's so much stigma still," she explained. "It makes it hard for people to get help. It makes it hard to give help and there's so much we don't know about how the mind and the brain work. That research needs funding."
"We should say thank you to people like Demi Lovato," Kudrow added of the singer, who was honored at Wednesday night's event. "She has talked about her struggles and so were honoring her tonight because it's really important and she's a young person and the younger you start educating the better."
