Matt LeBlanc Not Interested In A Friends Movie: ‘It’s A Bad Idea’

Matt LeBlanc On Friends Reunion

Jennifer Aniston has said it, Matthew Perry and now Matt LeBlanc voices his opinion of a possible Friends reunion which would lead to a movie. Popular TV shows which might have concluded for whatever reason and then make their way into the movies have proven to be a massive success, such as Sex and the City – which has already two films under its belt.

Friends star, Matt LeBlanc doesn’t think it’s a good idea for the show that made him famous to follow in SATC’s footsteps, personally because it wouldn’t ‘make sense’ since the show ended 8 years ago; the characters would have moved on, have children and live in their own apartments instead of still all being together.

“Yeah, that’s probably won’t happen. There’s no plans for anything like that. Everyone seems to be talking about that these days, but nope, no irons in the fire there. Once they have moved on from that phase, that family unit has broken down a little bit. I’m sure they’d keep in touch a bit, but it wouldn’t be the same.”

“I think it’s a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’. Do you know what I mean? Everyone identifies with those characters in their own way and everyone in their own mind imagines what has become of those characters. I just think it’s best to leave it at that.”

Since Friends came to an end, Matt has stayed busy with his latest role on Golden Globe winning show, Episodes – with the caption of, who needs friends – which has proven to be very popular not only in the USA but also in Britain where Matt is currently held up to promote the show’s second season. He continued:

“Once they have moved on from that phase, that family unit has broken down a little bit. I’m sure they’d keep in touch a bit, but it wouldn’t be the same. I think it’s a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’. Do you know what I mean? Everyone identifies with those characters in their own way and everyone in their own mind imagines what has become of those characters. I just think it’s best to leave it at that.”
