Ahead of the highly anticipated reunion of Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer, the gentlemen sat down with Access to discuss their history.
“There was a rule that we had [that] was really important to the six of us that we kept a friendship, that we were friends,” explained Perry, 51, when asked whether the cast members made an effort to avoid hooking up with one another. “If we were hooking up or there was any strangeness going on, that might mess with things.”
“We didn’t want to jeopardize any of the great relationships and friendships we were forming and had established,” Schwimmer, 54, chimed in. “It was kind of an unspoken [rule].”
Added LeBlanc, 53: “We’re like siblings.”
The trio had a hard time pegging who would have been a good pairing should that rule not have been in place. They also dished on the show’s historic guest stars, with the program famously nabbing movie-level talent in a time when crossover between film and television was not terribly common.
