London, Jun 23: Actress Lisa Kudrow has confirmed she is not in talks to star in a spin-off of the popular TV sitcom “Friends”.
The news comes in after, In Touch magazine claimed the 53-year-old actress was in “serious talks” with the show’s co-creator Marta Kauffman for a pseudo-sequel based on her character Phoebe Buffay.
But Kudrow’s spokesperson confirmed to Digital Spy she “is not” working on any such project. 
According to the report by the US tabloid, other “Friends” stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer were already in talks to star in the stand-alone show. 
The story would likely begin where Phoebe has moved back to New York after divorcing her husband Mike Hannigan, which was played by Paul Rudd. 
Earlier this year, Kudrow had bunked the claims of the show’s reunion. 
“I feel like I’m just constantly bursting that little bubble of hope, each and every time it’s asked. It’s been 13 years, 13 years of the same question and right now, or in the future, it’s not going to happen. And every time I say that, I get yelled at,” she joked. PTI
