Like Monica, trying to cheer up her boyfriend after a rough day, the funny clip softened the recent blow that the highly anticipated Friends reunion was postponed to March 2021.
Two weeks ago, Perry confirmed the delay on Twitter: “Friends reunion will be moved to early March.”
‘It looks like we are headed for a busy year. And that’s how I like it! wrote the actor, who recently proposed to his girlfriend Molly Hurwitz.
Safety first: ‘It was,’ How do we do this with a live audience? “This is not a safe time. Period. That is the main thing. It’s not a safe time to do it, ”Aniston said
In August, Aniston said in an interview with Deadline that she took a ‘glass is half full’ approach when it came to the procrastination.
‘It’s going to be great. You know what? This has also given us more time to make it more exciting and fun than it would have been, ‘she said.
“I choose to see it because the glass is half full, that it has been delayed,” she continued. “Look, we’re not going anywhere. You never get rid of friends, sorry. You’re stuck with us for life, guys. ‘
Pushed Again: HBO Max has again postponed the reunion due to COVID-19 and filming will not take place until next ‘May at the first’, according to sources speaking to Variety

“Unfortunately, it is very sad that we had to move it again,” said the Emmy winner.
She commented, ‘It was,’ How do we do this with a live audience? “This is not a safe time. Period. That is the point. It’s not a safe time to do it. ‘
Delays: Originally, the HBO Max special was due to air in May, but filming hadn’t even started when the COVID-19 pandemic halted productions across the board
