Lisa Kudrow Reacts to Fake ‘Friends’ Movie Trailer: ‘Something Should Be Done’
By Rachel McRady
Come on, Pheebs, make it happen! Fans of Friends should know that Lisa Kudrow has seen the trailer for the show’s fake movie reboot.
“Courteney [Cox], actually, is the one who said, ‘Did you see that trailer? What do we do?’ Like, nothing, that’s a clip!” Kudrow, 54, joked on Thursday’s Conan.
When host Conan O’Brien asked if Cox was confused by the clip, Kudrow replied, “No, she wasn’t fooled. She was like, ‘Wow, how did that go viral?’ You know, autocorrect, ‘How’d that go biral?’ But I knew what she meant.”
Kudrow didn’t seem overly impressed by the trailer, which to date has gotten more than 40 million views.
“I don’t know what to make of it. It’s just sort of these weird clips from things that clearly have nothing to do with Friends,” she said.
So can fans hold out any hope for a Friends reunion or reboot?
“I mean, something should be done. I don’t know what,” Kudrow admitted. “They’re rebooting everything. But I don’t know -- how does that work with Friends though? That was about people in their 20s, 30s. The show isn’t about people in their 40s, 50s, and if we have the same problems, that’s just sad.”
Kudrow played the beloved Phoebe Buffay on the hit sitcom for 10 seasons from 1994 to 2004. Back in 2013, the actress shut down rumors of a Friends reunion on Conan.
“I don’t feel enough already. I honestly just feel really bad just by saying, ‘That was actually something that was never going to happen,’” Kudrow said.
The cast did get together for a group dinner last year, which Kudrow confirmed on the Today show.
