Matt LeBlanc suggested an affair between Joey and Phoebe


The nineties sitcom Friends raised the bar way too high in terms of relationship goals with the iconic Rachel and Ross romance.

And while two other characters of Monica and Chandler also eventually got together, many fans were waiting for something to happen between the remaining two friends Joey and Phoebe as well.

We weren’t the only ones hoping for that to happen as an unearthed interview reveals how the actors who played the two, Lisa Kudrow and Matt LeBlanc were also completely on-board with the idea and even went as far as suggesting it to the makers.

The revelation was made by LeBlanc in an interview with Entertainment Weeklyback in 2016, when he was asked why the two never happened.

LeBlanc explained how he suggested an affair between the two characters towards the end, with the rest finding out about them being together this whole time after getting caught.

However, the idea did not float the boat of the makers and was eventually just shrugged off.

On the other hand, it was also revealed that instead of the show focusing on Ross and Rachel as the central couple, the pairing of the cast was also supposed to be slightly different as Joey and Monica were originally planned to be a couple.
