Matthew Perry has revealed the Friends cast had a 'no hooking up' pact.
During a recent interview with Access ahead of Friends Reunion, Perry, 51, recalled the six cast members — himself, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow — made a pact not to sleep together whilst working on the show in order to not jeopardise the programme and their friendship.
He explained: "There was a rule that we had, it was really important to the six of us, that we kept a friendship; that we were friends. Hooking up could have caused a strangeness that might mess with things. So we kept a friendship, and we did become really good friends. And we are really good friends to this day. And we kept that going, and I think that was very important."
Schwimmer added: "We didn't want to jeopardise any of the great relationships and friendships we were forming and had established. It was kind of an unspoken rule."
And when asked who among the cast had the most chemistry, Perry wisecracked, "Me and Schwimmer, probably."
Meanwhile, in a separate interview, Aniston, Cox and Kudrow remember the pact differently from the guys. Cox said, "It's a smart idea but I don't actually remember talking about it."
The host then jokingly suggested it was a pact that Schwimmer & Co. came up with, the ladies said, "[It's quite possibly true."]
Friends: The Reunion will premiere same time as the US on May 27 (Thur) on HBO Go, with a same-day broadcast on HBO (Singtel TV Ch 420, StarHub Ch 601) at 9pm.— BANG SHOWBIZ
