Courteney Cox 'I've been failing to put together a Friends dinner party for 10 years'

We all know the feeling of planning a reunion dinner with friends months in advance - it's hard work.

Well, for 10 years since the final episode of Friends in May 2004, actress Courteney Cox has been trying to organise a reunion dinner with all six stars of the show with no luck.

Consequently, Cox also dismissed any hopes of the group making a comeback for the milestone anniversary of the American sitcom.

On the Late Show with David Letterman earlier this week, the 49-year-old said, "Let me tell you something, there are six 'Friends' and I've been trying to put together a cast dinner for ten years. It doesn't happen.

"I mean, I can get the girls to come, maybe Matthew Perry... Matt LeBlanc cancelled last time right at the last minute, [David] Schwimmer lives here. So it's not going to happen."

She also put to bed the idea of a future ‘Friends’ movie, explaining that the format of the TV show wouldn't lend itself well to a film adaptation.

Cox said, “We did the whole show on a sound stage in Monica’s apartment pretty much… so what are you gonna do?"

While, we were pretty disappointed to hear this collective news, there have been a number of other projects where the cast have starred alongside each other.

Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry and Lisa Kudrow have all made cameo appearances on TV show Cougar Town of which Cox is the leading star.

Meanwhile, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Courteney Cox have appeared in Lisa Kudrow's comedy TV series Web Therapy.

We're still hoping for a reunion miracle come May 6 when it will officially be 10 years since the last episode of Friends.
