The Real Reason Why Joey And Phoebe Never Got Together In Friends

Tags: Scoopla, TV, Friends, Joey, Phoebe

Here we are, over 10 years after the airing of Friends, still wondering why the hell Joey and Phoebe never got together... until now. 

You might find this surprising, but apparently Lisa Kudrow and Matt LeBlanc, who played characters Phoebe and Joey, REALLY wanted the pair to get together. 

It's only taken him 11 years, but Matt LeBlanc has finally come out and revealed that he even pitched the idea to the producers but got shut down completely. 

In a recent interview with People magazine, he said, "towards the end, we actually pitched the idea that Joey and Phoebe had been having casual sex the entire time.

"We'd go back and shoot all the historical scenes and just before a moment that everyone recognises, there's Joey and Phoebe coming out of a broom closet together. But they were like, Nah."

Perhaps the producers weren't interested with any more sex interests than there already were...  

But psshhhh, what do producers know? Now we can't help but think about what could've been... 


The Friends' reunion is set to take place in February where almost the entire cast will be getting together one more time. Unfortunately, Matthew Perry, who played witty Chandler Bing, won't be attending due to rehearsals for his new play in London.
