Jennifer Aniston: Smart Phones Have Killed Coffee House Conversation

NBC's 'Friends' would actually talk to each other.

If the hit sit-com “Friends” were made today, it’d flop, says actress Jennifer Aniston, who starred in popular show which enjoyed a lucrative ten season run (1994-2004) on NBC.

Why? Because technology has killed coffee shop conversation, Aniston says in her interview on “The Thrive Global Podcast.” 

“We were jokingly saying that if ‘Friends’ was created today, you would have a coffee shop full of people that were just staring into iPhones,” Aniston says: “There would be no actual episodes or conversations.”

Smart phones are actually designed, she says, to "hijack our minds" and turn people in addicts:

“These are designed to literally hijack our minds and to create this addiction to the screen.”

“We started with the television when we were kids, it was the first screen that we had, and then there was the computer screens and then video games, and then these phones.”
