Anis­ton: ‘Amaz­ing’ that Friends re­mains pop­u­lar

Waterloo Region Record - - Arts & Life -

Jen­nifer Anis­ton says it’s “amaz­ing” that “Friends” still has an au­di­ence big enough to prompt mul­ti­mil­lion dol­lar busi­ness deals to keep it from dis­ap­pear­ing on Net­flix. Anis­ton told The As­so­ci­ated Press on Thurs­day the con­tin­ued pop­u­lar­ity of “Friends” with global au­di­ences “says a lot about the show.” She says it re­flects a dif­fer­ent era — when “peo­ple ac­tu­ally spoke to each other and hung out with oth­ers and talked.” After an out­cry from fans, Net­flix an­nounced ear­lier in the week that it was keep­ing the ad­ven­tures of Ross, Rachel, Phoebe and Joey avail­able to sub­scribers — at a re­ported $100 mil­lion price tag to the stream­ing ser­vice.
