Lisa Kudrow reveals emotional reason she'd NEVER do a Friends movie or new series

LISA Kudrow has revealed the emotional reason she'd NEVER do a Friends movie or a new series.

The hit sitcom came to an end in 2004 after 10 seasons and ever since, fans have been desperately hoping the cast would reunite for a new episode or movie version of the show.

But during the Friends Reunion – which premiered today in the US and the UK – Lisa shot down any hope of the characters returning.

The 57-year-old – who played Phoebe Buffay – was asked by presenter James Corden if she had ever contemplated returning to the role that made her famous.

She replied: "No, I'm sorry I haven't."

As the audience chuckled at her direct reply, she explained it would never be her decision to make anyway, it would be up to creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman.


She said: "Because that's all up to Marta and David. I once heard them say, and I completely agree, they ended the show very nicely.

"Everyone's lives are very nice and they would have to unravel all those good things in order for there to be stories.

"I don't want anyone's happy endings unravelled."

She added: "Also at my age to be saying like 'floopy', stop. You have to grow up."
