Cole Sprouse Reveals Why It Was Hard to Work with Jennifer Aniston on "Friends"
Jennifer Aniston Doesn't Think Friends Would Work In 2019
It is a truth universally acknowledged thatFriendsis one of the most beloved television shows of all time — but is it possible that the series might not have been nearly as good if it had taken in place in 2019 instead of 1997? According to star Jennifer Aniston, the answer is "yes."
In an interview with Arianna Huffington for the premiere episode of iHeartRadio's Thrive Global podcast, the actress spoke at length about how technology and social media have evolved over the past couple decades — and why she believes these advances would have completely ruinedFriends.
"We were jokingly saying that ifFriendswas created today, you would have a coffee shop full of people that were just staring into iPhones," she said. "There would be no actual episodes or conversations."
While mostFriendsfans might disagree with her stance — after all, most of us would do just about anything for more of our favorite five-some — she does have a point; and later in the interview, Jennifer also delved into how modern technology has affected her IRL, too. Most notably, she explained why it's so important to her that she stays off social media.
"For me, it's self-preservation not to be on social media. There's enough written about me out there and enough that's not true," she said. "Look, the mystery of who you are as an actor is already sort of taken from you.
