- May 26, 2021
“Friends” alums Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow pondered their #1 favorite actors who guest featured on the beloved comedy series.
The cast talked with Access Hollywood about the highly-anticipated reunion and named a list of stars who showed up on the show.
Aniston, who played Rachel Green, said that her ex, Brad Pitt, was one of her number one guest stars. “Mr. Pitt was wonderful, (he was) fantastic,” she said.
Pitt had an appearance on the Season 8 episode, “The One with the Rumor.” He depicted Will Colbert in the annual Thanksgiving episode and still detested Rachel from secondary school, which made for an awkward dinner.
In the interim, Cox and Kudrow named Paul Rudd, Tom Selleck, Ben Stiller, Reese Witherspoon, and Alec Baldwin as amazing guest stars too.
The special reunites the women with co-stars David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc, and Matthew Perry on screen for the first time since the sitcom finished in 2004.
The reunion was filmed on Stage 24, on the Warner Bros. Studio lot in Burbank, Calif., where the show was initially shot. It was set to be filmed in 2020 yet confronted delays due to the Covid pandemic.
It was reported a week ago that the special will likewise feature a variety of special guests including David Beckham, Justin Bieber, BTS, James Corden, Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne, Lady Gaga, Elliott Gould, Kit Harington, Larry Hankin, Mindy Kaling, Thomas Lennon, Christina Pickles, James Michael Tyler, Maggie Wheeler, and Malala Yousafzai.
“Friends: The Reunion” streams on HBO Max on May 27th.
