Lisa Kudrow: 'There Was Never a FRIENDS Movie. Ever!'
"There was never a "Friends" movie. Ever. So I've always known it's not happening," the actress said in regard to recent reports that the project was underway.
She continued, "...someone came up with a fake story and got some publication to buy the lie that there was going to be a reunion, so I saw on Twitter people were posting this article that NBC was really going to do it. And I went, "Wait a minute, was I not invited? Oh my God, maybe there is one and I wasn't asked to do it." I even had a moment where I believed it because everything around it looked real. It was a good setup."
Asked whether she felt certain the rumors were finally squelched, the Web Therapy star offered, "The creators have put them to rest. NBC has. I don't know who else needs to say, "It's really not happening."
