Lisa Kudrow complaints about the all-white cast of F.R.I.E.N.D.S
Although the coronavirus pandemic has indefinitely delayed the long-awaited special meeting of friends, Lisa Kudrow’s new interview may be the best thing to do.
In it, the actress speculates what her alter ego, the terrifying Phoebe Buffay can do. Last time the masseuse and the singer saw Paul Rudd’s Mike get married.
Although the Space Force star calls her experience with Friends “nothing but good”, she admits that the NBC comedy series would be “completely different” if it aired today. The show, which ran from 1994 to 2004, sparked criticism that some of the jokes were fat and transphobic, as well as complaining that rarely did black actors.
The show was progressive: Lisa
Kudrow acknowledges that a modern show should be more different, but defends the show because it was “very progressive” at the time.
She said the reason the show is still so popular is that “young people have this unconscious longing for personal connection”.
“Friends” special meeting:
Kudrow, along with five other stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer, was ready to shoot for the long-awaited “Friends” special meeting, which was indefinitely suspended due to production under the guidance of coronavirus shutdown.
