Jennifer Aniston Says 'Friends' Cast Didn't Like the Theme Song!

Jennifer Aniston is just like us… she watches Friends re-runs all the time too!

The actress says that while she enjoys catching her show on repeat, she often has a hard time remembering which episode it is and sometimes can’t recall what happened.

“I can’t help it,” Jennifer said on BBC’s The One Show. “First, I’m trying to remember which episode it is, and then half the time I’m saying to myself, ‘I don’t remember that.’ You get sucked into the nostalgia of it.”

David Schwimmer Calls 'Friends' Sucess 'Pretty Jarring'

David Schwimmer is opening up about the success he found with the long-running sitcom Friends.

The 49-year-old People v OJ Simpson star reveals he had trouble with the immense fame that came along with it.

“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,” David told THR‘s “Awards Chatter” podcast. “As an actor, the way I was trained, my job was to observe life and to observe other people, so I used to walk around with my head up, really engaged and watching people. The effect of celebrity was the absolute opposite: It made me want to hide under a baseball cap and not be seen. And I realized after a while that I was no longer watching people; I was trying to hide. So I was trying to figure out: How do I be an actor in this new world, in this new situation? How do I do my job? That was tricky.”

Friends ran on NBC for ten seasons from 1994-2004.

Will a 'Friends' Reboot Ever Happen? Show's Creator Weighs In...

With all the talk about an upcoming reunion with almost all of the Friends cast, the show’s co-creator Marta Kauffman opened up about the possibility of a reboot show!

Unfortunately, don’t expect to see Jennifer Aniston (Rachel), Courteney Cox (Monica), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe), David Schwimmer (Ross), Matthew Perry (Chandler), and Matt LeBlanc (Joey) on TV all together again.

“For me, why go back to that territory again?” Marta told Us Weekly. “I get to do [on new show Grace and Frankie] what I loved about Friends, which is, make a show that’s got some hope and joy to it and explore something completely new. That was about a certain time in your life, and I had just left [the] Friends time of my life. This is about the time of my life I’m looking towards.”
