SPOILER WARNING: From secret crushes to on-set crashes, here are the ten biggest revelations from the eagerly awaited Friends Reunion special.
At the height of the show’s success, David, 49, along with his co-stars Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry were raking in over $1 million each per episode. Subsequently the six cast members became household names – but that’s something that David, who played goofy and lovable Ross Geller, really struggled with (because no one told him life was gonna be this way). Recalling his time on Friends and reflecting on becoming a global star at age 27, he told The Hollywood Reporter: “It was pretty jarring and it messed with my relationship to other people in a way that took years, I think, for me to adjust to and become comfortable with.
Matt LeBlanc’s new comedy Man With A Plan premieres on CBS in the autumn, joining a Monday night line-up that includes former Friends co-star Matthew Perry’s sitcom The Odd Couple – and consequently they now work just one stage away from each other. “I love that guy,” LeBlanc, 49, enthused of Perry, 46, during the 2016 TCA Press Tour on Wednesday (Aug 10).
Writer and TV producer Kauffman, 59, revealed that a reunion show starring Jennifer Aniston (as Rachel Green), Courtney Cox (as Monica Geller), Lisa Kudrow (as Phoebe Buffay), Matthew Perry (as Chandler Bing), David Schwimmer (as Ross Geller) and Matt LeBlanc (as Joey Tribbiani) will “never happen” during an interview with Deadline.
