There was no Friends reunion at Jennifer Aniston’s quaint wedding.
On August 5th Aniston, 46, married Justin Theroux, 44, in a secret ceremony. They invited about 70 close friends and family but some “friends” didn’t make the cut.
It’s rumoured that Courtney Cox was the maid of honor and Lisa Kudrow was a special guest. According to Us Magazine, David Schwimmer wasn’t in attendance but it’s uncertain as to whether or not he got invited. There are two Friends stars, though, who confirmed not getting an invite.
Both Matt Leblanc, 48, and Matthew Perry, 45, confirmed that they were in the dark about Jen’s wedding.
People Magazine interviewed Perry. He passed on his congratulations despite being left out. He said:
“I wasn’t invited. So what can you do? (The wedding) was a surprise to me as well. They’re a lovely couple, and I’m happy for them.”
People magazine questioned LeBlanc about the wedding on Monday at a press event. He said:
“I think they’re a great couple. I think she’s happy. And that’s all I care about is that Jen’s happy. If she wanted me there, I would have been there.”
Leblanc, having regrets about missing her first marriage to Brad Pitt in 2000, I’m sure he meant every word of his statement. He had been working on a movie at the time and declined the invitation. This time around, the invitation declined him. He said:
“I missed when she married Brad. I was in Austria working. She called me, and she was like, ‘You’re really not coming to my wedding?’ And I was like, ‘I asked them if they could change the schedule. I would fly and clap and fly out.’ And they said, ‘We can’t do it. It’s too tight.’ It was a small-budget movie in Austria you’ve never heard of. Probably should have left anyway, but s— happens. What are you going to do?”
I can picture Pheobe singing their wedding song and Monica baking their cake. It’s too bad the rest of the Friends family weren’t able to be there too.
Well, congratulations anyway Jennifer and Justin!
