Aniston amazed at Friends’ endurance
Jennifer Aniston calls it “amazing” that Friends still has an audience big enough to prompt multimillion dollar business deals to keep it from disappearing on Netflix.
“I find it amazing that it’s continued to have such love and such an audience and such an appetite for it,” Aniston told The Associated Press Thursday at the premiere of her Netflix film Dumplin’.
After an outcry from fans, Netflix announced that it was keeping the adventures of Ross, Rachel, Phoebe and Joey available to subscribers through 2019 — at a reported $100 million price tag.
“I think it says a lot about the show. Especially since it takes place at a time where it’s so different from now. You know, people actually spoke to each other and hung out with each other and talked,” Aniston said.
