‘Friends’ Star Offers Definitive Word on Long-Rumored ‘Friends’ Movie

One of the former stars of "Friends" offered what may be the most definitive statement yet on a long-rumored movie based on the beloved NBC sitcom.

Lisa Kudrow tells CNN there won’t be a movie based on the show, and adds, "There was never a ‘Friends’ movie."

After reading a few months ago that NBC was going to do a movie, she wondered whether it was true, she said.

Kudrow, who played Phoebe Buffay for the show’s 10 seasons, tells the publication, "Well, I knew there wasn’t ever a movie. There was never a ‘Friends’ movie. Ever. So I’ve always known it’s not happening. But with this last rumor someone came up with a great graphic with the couch and it looked like a real teaser and I went, ‘Wait!’"

The actress adds: "And then 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."

But Kudrow added that the show’s creators have put the rumors to rest. "I don’t know who else needs to say, ‘It’s really not happening,’" she said.
