Shortly after Courteney Cox’s revelation, Friends star, Lisa Kudrow has revealed that she too, doesn’t recall filming the hit sitcom.
Keep scrolling for the full story, and to hear the heartbreaking details behind the shocking memory loss…
We were first introduced to the Friends gang in 1994.
Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Phoebe, and Joey burst onto our screens in September 1994.
The comedy followed the friends, who live in the same New York apartment block, as they navigated through their mid-twenties.
Who, in a way, became our own friends… It’s corny, but it’s true.
Ross and Rachel were not on a break. Period.
There were many iconic moments throughout the show’s ten seasons.
Rachel’s English trifle, Chandler’s nubbin, the time Joey got a Thanksgiving turkey stuck on his head… The list could go on.
Despite the show coming to an end in 2004, it stands as one of the most-watched shows on Netflix, and its fanbase is as strong as ever.
And none of us can quite see them in anything else.
The gang earned a lot of money during those 10 years…
Allegedly, the cast was each on an eye-watering $1 million salary per episode in the later seasons of the show – a history-breaking figure.
Why on earth isn’t a reunion on the cards?
Apart from the occasional reunion on talk-shows, fans have had their fair share of disappointments when it comes to waiting for a Friends reunion.
A fake trailer for a Friends movie even went viral last year, giving superfans false hope that the sitcom was hitting the box office.
In 2018, Matt Leblanc said a Friends reunion would never go ahead.
The actor left fans heartbroken as he rejected calls for the show to return, saying the sitcom simply “wouldn’t be the same” in an interview with the Mail Online.
He added: “People want to know what happened to them. But it was about a finite period in a person’s life after college, before you settle down and start a family.”
While appearing on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, the actress said:
“They’re rebooting everything. I don’t know how that works with Friends, though. That was about people in their twenties, thirties. The show isn’t about people in their forties, fifties. And if we have the same problems, that’s just sad.”
The show’s creator Marta Kauffman, says she constantly gets “nagged” by fans to bring the sitcom back.
“Watch the old ones – there is no way we could win that. And there’s no way it would be satisfying and it’ll never happen. We’ll never do it,” she said.
But, at this point, it’s pretty clear that a Friends reunion won’t be happening any time soon.
Though, by the sounds of things, some of the cast could do with a reunion…
Because, recently, some of the actors have been coming forward with some pretty shocking claims.
Yep, despite earning a staggering amount of money for their roles in the show, some of the actors are having a hard time remembering their time on the set.
Recently, the actress admitted that she has no memories from filming on the set of Friends.
“I don’t remember even being on the show,” the actress said.
“I have such a bad memory. I remember obviously loving everybody there and having fun, and certain times in my life that I remember I was there for, but I don’t remember episodes.”
“I decided during this time, because people love the show so much, I decided to binge-watch Friends. I just started season 1… and it’s really good!”
And now, a second member of the cast has come forward with the same revelation.
Lisa Kudrow has now admitted that she too, can’t remember anything from her Friends days.
Kudrow, who portrayed the wonderfully eccentric, Phoebe Buffay, recently opened up about her memory loss.
Does Kudrow remember singing “Smelly Cat”?
Surely, she’ll remember this one.
Well, keep scrolling to hear what she had to say on the matter.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly about the later series of the show, Kudrow explained:
“I haven’t seen some of the later episodes, to be honest. And then I don’t rewatch them. So it’s really fun to talk about things.”
“Someone remembers it one way and someone remembers something else about it altogether, and I don’t know, it’s really fun. It’s great.”
But she revealed the 2 cast members who remember everything.
“And then some people have phenomenal memories. Jennifer (Anniston) remembers everything and Matt (LeBlanc) remembers everything.”
This then prompted her to quip, “And I remember nothing.”
And didn’t specify any moments in particular where her memory suddenly stops working.
