Fans of Friends are desperate for the cast to come together for a reunion – but that might be some way off, according to Jennifer Aniston. The actress spoke about the possibility of a reprisal of the hit sitcom during an interview this week with Graham Norton.
"At this point I honestly think we should just wait until we are really much older and have 'Golden Friends'!" said the 45-year-old star, who played Rachel Green in the show. "Then you wouldn't have the comparison."
Jennifer also opened up about her fiancé Justin Theroux – and revealed an embarrassing moment at the start of their romance when he watched her in one of her earliest roles, in the film Leprechaun.
"Actually, it was a mortifying moment when Justin and I had just started to date," she confided. "He was flipping through the channels and he stumbled upon that. And that was our next two hours, much to my embarrassment."
The actress was on the show to promote her new film, Horrible Bosses 2. In it she stars as sex addict dentist Julia Harris; "It's completely fun, it's a dream job for any actress, to play that monster," she told Good Morning America earlier this week.
Part of the fun, Jennifer said, is because she is the complete opposite to the man-eating character. "It goes against every fibre of my being," she added.
Fans will see Jennifer take on a very different role for her next movie, Cake. She is already generating Oscar buzz for her raw performance in the film, which sees her physically transform to play a woman named Claire who suffers from chronic pain and addiction issues.
As well as having a make-under, Jennifer needed to add a few pounds to her slender frame for the part. In a recent Q&A, she was asked how she did it.
"I knew that was coming," she said. "I basically just didn't work out for two-and-a-half months. I stopped working out and I stopped being as careful about my diet as I normally am. I was still healthy, but I'd allow more."
The star had to go without makeup for the film – "I've said it before, it's very refreshing" – save for a fake scar on her face.
"We did a lot of experimenting and we had an extraordinary makeup artist make these scars for us," she revealed. "We did some trials, some scar test days. Oh, if you could have seen some of the pictures, it looked like Chainsaw Massacre kind of stuff, you know? Like Freddy Kruger.
"By the end, I didn't even notice they were there. And I also thought they were… I don't know, I thought they were kind of beautiful."
