The cast of Friends talks about the friendship rule
During the interview Matthew perry, 51, explained that the cast had a very important rule to make sure that between the six protagonists there was only a friendship. A possible special connection between two cast members could have messed up the TV series. “So we kept the friendship and became really good friends. And we still are! " says the actor.
Perry explained that he was the director James burrows to "kick off" the rule. “We didn't want to jeopardize any of the great relationships and friendships we were forming and established,” Schwimmer added. "It was a kind of unspoken rule." "We are like brothers," he added Matt LeBlanc.
During the interview, the actors also praised the show's historical guest stars. The show hosted big screen talents at a time when the crossover between cinema and television was not so common. “I think the biggest surprise was the very funny participation of Sean Penn” Perry admitted, pointing out that it was "Intimidating" work with the dramatic actor.
“He happened to come to the set during a week when I was dressed like a pink bunny,” he recalled Perry. Schwimmer, who was dressed as a "giant potato", on the other hand, joked that he wasn't intimidated by Sean Penn at all.
Access subsequently asked Aniston, Cox e Kudrow what they thought about the "rule" of friendship. The co-stars said to don't remember ever talking about it. Host Kit Hoover then joked that the men had concealed that rule as a justification why women "didn't want them." "That might be true," Aniston said.
