Actress Who Played Chandler's Dad Felt 'Unwelcomed' By Friends Cast
Friends fans will know that the gang of six were SUPER close - and the actors who played them, even more so. Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer spent every day together for ten years - so it's no surprise other people couldn't match that bond.
We've never heard a negative word said about the cast, but actress Kathleen Turner, who played Chandler's father, has expressed that the gang weren't particularly friendly when she joined them on set.
Say it ain't so! Speaking to Vulture, she said:
"I'll be quite honest…I didn't feel very welcomed by the cast.
"I remember I was wearing this difficult sequined gown—and my high heels were absolutely killing me. I found it odd that none of the actors thought to offer me a seat."
Kathleen continued, "Finally it was one of the older crew members that said, 'Get Miss Turner a chair.' The Friends actors were such a clique—but I don't think my experience with them was unique. I think it was simply that they were such a tight little group that nobody from the outside mattered."
When the publication asked about Jen, David and the gang's skills as actors and actresses, Kathleen said she "won't comment" on that.
"Maybe if I'd had months to work with them, I'd be in a better position to evaluate their skill", she went on.
"But I could only judge based on the period I worked on the show, which wasn't long.
"I do respect the camaraderie they had. You can see camaraderie on the screen. When I did Body Heat with Larry Kasdan and Bill Hurt, we rehearsed significantly before shooting and there was a familiarity before the camera rolled. You see it in the film."
Lisa Kudrow chatted around the subject in a different interview, saying:
"We spent 10 years together, almost every day," Lisa Kudrow reminisced in an interview with The Guardian. "We all went through something significant together, and that's a strong bond. As you get older, you realize, oh, you don't have that with just about everybody."
So there you go, folks! We reckon it was less 'you can't sit with us' and more 'we've been sitting this way for 10 years', than anything else...
