Jennifer Aniston has bemoaned the lack of good film roles, saying that Hollywood is “diminishing” with all the “big Marvel movies.”
The Friends star, who is making her TV comeback with her new series The Morning Show, explained that she is returning to television because she is not “that interested in living in a green screen.”
“You’re seeing what’s available out there and it’s just diminishing and diminishing in terms of, it’s big Marvel movies,” Aniston told Variety. “Or things that I’m not just asked to do or really that interested in living in a green screen.”
She added that the movie business has “changed so much”. “I think we would so love to have the era of Meg Ryan come back,” she said.
“I just think it would be nice to go into a movie theatre, sit cozy. I think we should have a resurgence. Let’s get the Terms of Endearment back out there. You know, Heaven Can Wait, Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, Goodbye Girl.”

“I think the reason [Friends] still continues to be popular is that the thesis was that you don’t need a romantic partner if your friends are everything. That was an idea that was ahead of its time.
“It makes you happy. Even when I stumble on it, it makes me happy. I love it and I’ve also forgotten most of it, so it’s really fun for me to rediscover.”
