James Michael Tyler, who played Gunther in “Friends,” has revealed that Jennifer Aniston hasn’t spoken to him in 15 years. The 57-year-old actor’s lovelorn character was obsessed with Aniston’s Rachel Green in the sitcom, and the pair worked closely together for a decade.
However, when filming wrapped in 2004 the two actors lost touch — although James insisted that it wasn’t personal.
He admitted: “I haven’t seen Jennifer since the wrap party, honestly. It’s been 15 years since it ended.
“That was a time of our lives when we were lucky enough to be able to work together for 10 years and have that sort of chemistry.
“She lives in another city. I’m not going to go and hang outside her house and wait for her to come outside and say hello. That would be kind of weird!”
James isn’t the only Friends alumni to be reflecting on his time on the show in recent days, with Cali Sheldon also marking the programme’s anniversary with throwbacks to her time on set. Cali and her twin sister Noelle shared the role of Rachel and Ross’ daughter Emma between 2003 and 2004.
