The greatest and iconic sitcom, FRIENDS is one of the most re-watched shows. Its loyal fans have watched the show over and over again and you’d also think that all of the show’s stars would love watching the show’s re-runs as much as the rest of us, but Lisa Kudrow who popularly known for her role as Phoebe Buffay in the show revealed that she had never watched FRIENDS episodes yet. Yes, recently, in an interview, she revealed that she hasn't watched the entire series but she also revealed that she is only the one who has not seen it. After revealing this, Lisa also asserted that one day she will watch it.
"There are some episodes I've never seen. And I'm not the only one in the cast for which this is true. Especially later on in the show when we all got really busy. I know it sounds crazy, but one day I can't wait to watch FRIENDS," Lisa said, reports femalefirst.co.uk. Interestingly, during a conversation with her co-star Rachel Green aka Jennifer Aniston, which was done virtually for Variety's Actors on Actors, Kudrow shared that she won’t watch full rerun episodes of Friends and she had a very good reason. “I don’t watch the show. I’m still not watching it in the hopes that one day we sit down and watch them together,” Kudrow told Aniston who agreed to it and said, "I think it would be a lot of fun for us to do something like that.”
She even said that playing Phoebe Buffay, a dumb person in FRIENDS has been great because people talk much more freely when they assume you don't understand them. "It's been great playing a dumb person because people talk much more freely when they assume you don't understand them. It's like driving kids to school - they think you're just the back of a head so they say everything, not knowing that you're listening to every word," she said to the portal.
Meanwhile, a special reunion episode starring David Schwimmer (Ross), Matthew Perry (Chandler), Matt LeBlanc (Joey), Courteney Cox (Monica), Jennifer Aniston (Rachel), and Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe) is still awaited and reportedly, the episode will release in 2021, owing to the current pandemic.
