Anis­ton amazed at Friends’ en­durance

Toronto Sun - - SHOWBIZ -

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.
