‘We’d just be staring into iPhones’: Jennifer Aniston says Friends reunion would be boring because technology has ruined social interactions
She is always asked about a Friends reunion.
And the topic came up once again for Jennifer Aniston who was asked about a potential revival of the beloved 90’s sitcom.
However, the 48-year-old actress said that the show just wouldn’t work nowadays.
Breaking hearts: Jennifer Aniston said that a Friends reunion just wouldn’t work nowadays in a recent interview with the Huffington Post
‘We were jokingly saying that if Friends was created today you would have a coffee shop full of people that were just staring into iPhones,’ she said to the Huffington Post.
‘There would be no actual episodes or conversations,’ she continued.
The Horrible Bosses actress – who starred alongside Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Matt Le Blanc and David Schwimmer – said people are too into their phones to have proper conversations nowadays.
The actress – who is married to Justin Theroux – admitted she sometimes lets technology take over her and it can even stop her from sleeping.
She said: ‘If I think back before devices, I’m trying to think first, which came first, my bad sleeping habits or a device?
‘I honestly think I used to sleep beautifully and I don’t think I attributed to the fact that these phones came into our lives that have actually started to disrupt our sleep.’

Jennifer also revealed she and Justin use meditation apps to relax.
Meanwhile, the actress’ Friends co-star Lisa Kudrow, who played Phoebe, recently admitted she’d love a reunion but thinks it would be too hard to organize all their schedules.
Additionally, Cox told David Letterman on The Late Show that she’d been trying to get the group together for years.
‘It’s not gonna happen,’ she said of a possible reunion. ‘There’s six friends and I’ve been trying to put a cast dinner together for 10 years. It doesn’t happen.’
