How many times have you been at dinner or catching up over coffee with friends only to find yourself sneaking a look at your phone to refresh Instagram, quickly replying to a WhatsApp message or pausing mid-conversation to take a Snapchat picture of your decaf coconut milk latte?

Social media has arguably destroyed, rather than improved, our IRL encounters and one woman who isn't having any of it is Friends alumnus, Jennifer Aniston.

In an interview with Lorraine Kelly, the 47-year-old actress blew out the flame of hope that is the possibility of a Friends reunion.

Why?

Because how could they bring the internationally-loved 90s sitcom into the present day without the sight of Joey searching through Bumble for his next date, Rachel posting Instagram pictures of her new Gucci loafers and Monica and Chandler debating whether they should let their twins Erica and Jack (who'd be 12 years-old now, FYI) have Facebook accounts?

Speaking about the possibility of a reunion, the Bruce Almighty star said:

Honestly, I don't know what we would do.

'I think that period of time was nostalgic. Our faces weren't stuffed into cell phones, we weren't checking Facebook and Instagram. We were in a room together, we were in a coffee shop talking and having conversations. We've lost that,' she added.

To be fair, would any of us really want to see the group of six glued to their iPhones or talking about the latest Netflix series in Central Perk?

Besides, just think of the social media backlash a new series would get if it didn't live up to our high expectations?

Like Justin Timberlake's Pot Noodle-like curls and Tamagotchis, some things deserve to be left in the past.
