There have already been tons of controversies regarding the upcoming Friends reunion starring Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, and more.
Shortly after it was announced that the reunion special would push through, the production for Friends was postponed due to COVID-19. Now, there are reports that Jennifer Aniston and her co-stars could already start filming.
However, OK! magazine claimed that there’s another problem regarding the Friends reunion special. Aniston, Cox, Lisa Kudrow, and their male co-stars, allegedly, have tons of restrictions.
“This whole project took a wrong turn because the deals were made before everyone could agree on a creative direction. Now, each actor has a list of topics that are off-limits for them,” a source said.
Jennifer Aniston and her co-stars allegedly have off-limits topics
None of the Friends cast members are, allegedly, open to talking about their relationships. And they also don’t want to be asked about their plastic surgeries and substance abuse rumors.
“Pretty much anything that’s interesting is banned, so everyone’s resigned to having a boring roundtable about the show. There’s fear that this special’s going to be a big embarrassment that puts a black stain on the series,” the source said.
‘Friends’ filming postponed indefinitely
According to recent reports, the filming for Friends won’t take place anytime soon. Initially, there were reports that Jennifer Aniston will reunite with her co-stars at the end of the summer.
However, the filming has been pushed back indefinitely because of the coronavirus pandemic.
“As California has become a hotspot for the coronavirus over the past month, taping an in-person reunion no longer seems possible in the immediate future,” a source told Entertainment Weekly.
Jennifer Aniston reacts to ‘Friends’ filming postponement
Aniston also reacted to the postponement during a phone interview with Deadline.
“It’s going to be super. You know what? This has also given us more time to make it even more exciting and more fun than it would have been. So I choose to see it as the glass is half-full that it got postponed. Look, we’re not going anywhere. You’re never going to get rid of Friends, sorry. You’re stuck with us for life guys. Unfortunately, it’s very sad that we had to move it again. It was, ‘How do we do this with live audiences?’ This is not a safe time. Period. That’s the bottom line. It’s not a safe time to do it,” she said.
However, Jennifer Aniston talked about the allegations that some interesting topics will be off-limits in the Friends reunion special. After all, the claims made by the tabloid are incorrect.
