Matthew Perry Would 'Say No' to a 'Friends' Reunion
Friends alum Matthew Perry would "say no" to a formal reunion.
The 47-year-old actor, who played Chandler Bing on the series, explained in an interview with Variety why he isn't interested in reviving the NBC sitcom.
"I have this recurring nightmare—I'm not kidding about this. When I'm asleep, I have this nightmare that we do Friends again and nobody cares. We do a whole series, we come back, and nobody cares about it. So if anybody asks me, I'm gonna say no," Perry said.
Lisa Kudrow told NBC's 'Today' that she was 'laughing nonstop' at a dinner with former 'Friends' costars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry.
"The thing is: We ended on such a high. We can't beat it. Why would we go and do it again?" he added.
Perry was noticeably absent in February 2016 when co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer reunited to honor director James Burrows. He said a Build series interview, however, that he wasn't sad to miss the TV special.
"Not really, because it really wasn't a reunion. It was just six people getting together for a Jim Burrows special. It wasn't really a reunion. And I couldn't do it because I was in London doing my play," the star explained in April 2016.
Friends had a 10-season run from 1994 to 2004. Perry denied on Watch What Happens Live in May that his co-stars slept together during filming, saying there "was no sex between any of them."
