The huge sums of money generated by the Sex and the City movie has inspired Courtney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston to do a feature film for Friends. The idea has been thrown around for a while, but never came to fruition because people were worried Aniston was too big to play Rachel. Huh?
‘As the biggest star of the Friends franchise, Jennifer can’t help but look at what’s happened with Sarah Jessica Parker and the Sex And The City film and be a little jealous.
‘What’s held back a Friends movie so far is that people were worried that Jennifer had simply become too famous to play Rachel again.
‘But the truth is that Jennifer is finally willing to do it, and she’d love to work with that whole team of actors and producers again.
Jennifer’s fame consists of tabloids speculating whether or not she’s being holed out by John Mayer. Her biggest hit post-Friends was showing her ass in The Break-Up. Suffice to say, no one cares about Jennifer Aniston unless she’s doing something sexy. An angry tiger could maul her this afternoon and the only question the media would ask is, “Was she naked?”
