Jennifer Aniston Dismisses 'Friends' Fan Theory That Rachel Should Have Chosen Joey

Jennifer Aniston Dismisses 'Friends' Fan Theory That Rachel Should Have Chosen Joey

Hardcore Friends fans will know all about the recent conspiracy theory that has been doing the rounds. For simplicity's sake, let's call it 'The One Where Joey Is Actually The Man For Rachel And Not Ross'.

Twitter user @kaneandgriffin postulated this groundbreaking idea a few weeks back and we're yet to find too many faults with it: Ross was a scrub of the first order, as well as being a grade A moaner with - perhaps ironically, for a palaeontologist - absolutely no backbone.

Whereas Joey was a nice (if somewhat sleazy) guy, who did at some point appear to give two shits about his paramours rather than big, stupid self. Essentially, he was the human equivalent of a happy labrador: dim as a Toc-h lamp, but loyal and loving to the end.

It makes sense, right? Well, not if you ask the in question woman herself. Ok, Jennifer Aniston and Rachel Green might theoretically be different people, but the haircut was called the Rachel and not the Jennifer so we're not going to - ahem - split hairs.

Either way, Rachel/Jennifer was asked in an interview with Stylist about the fan theory and was unequivocal in her denial of its veracity.

"No!" said the star, "No, no. They [Rachel and Joey] tried. I think there was a moment when Joey and Rachel got together that maybe it could happened, but it didn't. It was Ross and Rachel all the way."

"I just don't think Joey and Rachel could have made it. I think it was more physical than emotional with them. They were friends with benefits, and they left it at that."

Hmm. Want to read the full theory, in all its 100-tweet-thread glory? Cool. It's worth it. Here's your starting point:

Friends Fan Theory Could Prove Joey Tribbiani Is A Real Person

published at4 years ago


Aniston went on to discuss the theory that, somehow, somewhere (but presumably New York), the Friends universe is still ongoing and they're all living fruitful, probably less fanciful lives.

"I really believe that if there's an afterworld of Friends, they're still thriving. Don't you?"

Of course, the true Friends die-hards among us will remember the incident in which Ross walked in on Rachel and Joey making out - how conveniently often does that happen on telly, eh? - and yet somehow ended up forgiving her for snogging his mate and got with her anyway.

Perhaps the next time someone pins Jennifer Aniston down, they can ask her to confirm the idea that Mad About You, Seinfeld and Friends all took place at the same time in the same place and with the same characters - now that's a conspiracy theory that would make even Alex Jones blush.
