Jennifer Aniston has her say about *that* controversial Friends theory

"Maybe it could have happened."

You may remember coming across a Friends theory which pointed out the reasons why Rachel should have chosen Joey over Ross in Friends.


A Twitter user by the name of @kaneandgriffin came up with a 100-point thesis as to why Rachel and Joey should have been the will-they-won't-they couple instead of Rachel Aniston and David Schwimmer's characters.

Well, Jennifer Aniston has had her say on the famous Twitter thread.

It was an argument that tore people apart on social media and while some were quite happy with the possibility of Joey being Rachel's one true love, others were absolutely disgusted at the thought.

The thread pointed out the fact that Ross branded Rachel as 'his' and couldn't stand her being in direct contact with any other male.


Joey, on the other hand, was always supportive of Rachel and even let her share his apartment when she was pregnant with Ross' baby.

In an interview with Elle, the actress was quick to squash any doubt in fans' minds that Rachel and Ross weren't the ideal couple for the show.

When asked if there was "any chance you secretly wish Joey and Rachel had made it?" Aniston said:

"No! No, no. They tried! I think there was a moment when Joey and Rachel got together that, maybe it could have happened, but it didn't.

"It was Ross and Rachel all the way. I really believe that if there's an afterworld of Friends, they're still thriving. Don't you?

"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."


It was always going to be Rachel and Ross. See, he's her lobster.
