MATT LEBLANC: "We spent 10 years together, all day, every day. And then when it was over, everybody’s career went in different directions, like it would with six people in an office job. When we run into each other, it’s like, ‘Oh my god! Hey, how you doin’?…It’s like no time’s passed. It really is. It’s good."
On whether they ever watch the show, and what they remember about filming :
MATT LEBLANC: ”Sometimes [I’ll stop on the channel], I’ll say, ‘Oh, this is a good joke coming up.’” (told that Courteney Cox doesn’t remember much about those 10 seasons) ”She was drunk most of the time. I have to out her right here.”
LISA KUDROW: ”I don’t tend to see the show, but on the Internet sometimes if I’m looking for something — I don’t know how it knows that it’s me—a Friends thing will pop up as a suggestion for something to watch… It’s always like, ‘Hey, why don’t you look at these bloopers? Look at all the Joey bloopers, and here’s David Schwimmer’s funniest moments…And I laugh out loud.”
this broke my heart
like he looks at her like she’s his little sister
and they’re playing some game
tiny ginny weasley, growing up with six brothers, deathly afraid of being branded “girly”, because “girly” from the sneering mouths of fred and george meant weak, inadequate, pathetic
ginny weasley at eight years old, sick of her hair flowing down to her bottom, sick of tying it into plaits and pigtails, grabbing a pair of scissors and chopping it all off with messy hacks - then molly was gasping, snatching the scissors from her grasp, yelling at her and mourning her “beautiful, beautiful” hair
ginny weasley at twelve years old, fresh from the horrors of her first year and accepting her dorm-mate’s mascara. after everything that happened, she’s trying to make friends, and her dorm-mates are trying too. so she takes the mascara wand and, for the first time, applies it. it’s clumpy and uneven but her dorm-mates help her perfect it - it’s girly and feminine and against everything she’s ever stood for, against the reputation she had built at the burrow, but she kind of likes the dark weight on her eyelashes
ginny weasley slowly recognising and destroying her internalised misogyny as she progresses through hogwarts - ginny weasley embracing makeup and quidditch in equal measures, ginny weasley burping the alphabet and squeezing into the tiniest of skirts, ginny weasley being stark and cold and fearsome as well as giggly and sweet and flirty. ginny weasley standing up for the tomboys of hogwarts as well as the girliest of girls. don’t fuck with girl-power ginny weasley or you’ll be bat-bogey hexed into next week.
