Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Actress Jennifer Aniston is currently promoting her latest flick “Office Christmas Party” and she was asked about a lot of things regarding being part of the long-running and one of the most famous sitcoms of all time, “Friends.”
The hit NBC series ended 12 years ago and many have been asking for a “Friends” reunion or a reboot and it seems that fans are not the only ones missing the show because the 47-year-old actress revealed that she still enjoys re-runs of “Friends.” She was at BBC’s “The One Show” on Monday evening and shared about watching reruns that she cannot help it.
She later added, “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.’” Aniston pointed out that whenever she watches reruns of “Friends,” she gets sucked into the nostalgia of the series.
The actress revealed another secret she has about “Friends” and it has something to do with the opening credits. The theme song of “Friends” is “I’ll Be There For You” and it was iconic because of the fountain shot. Apparently, Aniston said that she, her other cast mates, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer , Lisa Kudrow , Matt LeBlanc, and Matthew Perry did not like it at all..
Aniston said that none of them was a big fan of the theme song noting that they felt it was awkward and odd. She pointed out that dancing in a fountain was something they did not because they wanted it but because they were told to do so by the producers of “Friends.”
As for the latest movie of Aniston, “Office Christmas Party,” she stars in the flick alongside Jason Bateman, Olivia Munn , T.J. Miller, Jillian Bell, Courtney B. Vance, Kate McKinnon , and many more. During her interview at “The One Show,” Aniston was accompanied by “Office Christmas Party” directors Josh Grodon and Will Speck. They said that Aniston’s character in “Office Christmas Party” is a mix of Rachel from “Friends” and her role in “Horrible Bosses.”
“Office Christmas Party” will be out in theaters this December 9.
