Kathleen Turner AKA Chandler's Dad Says Friends Hasn't Aged Well
We've often said a millennial version of Friends would look pretty different to how it did back in the 90s. Fingers crossed we wouldn't fat-shame Monica (that girl is a QUEEN), Ross would throw out a LOT less 'not all men' quotes and Chandler would be a lot more understanding of his father-turned-drag-queen.
Kathleen Turner, who played drag queen Helena Handbasket, recently chatted to Gay Times - and noted that the sitcom hasn't stood the test of time in some areas.
"I don't think it's aged well. It was a 30-minute sitcom. It became a phenomenon, but no one ever took it seriously as a social comment."
Turner said that her character, Charles Bing, was seen as a groundbreaking role at the time:
"How they approached with me with it was, 'Would you like to be the first woman playing a man playing a woman?' I said yes, because there weren't many drag/trans people on television at the time."
Turner added: "Yeah, people thought Charles was just dressing up."
We've often wondered how Friends might look in the 21st Century. Wanna see?
