Lisa Kudrow, who played Phoebe Buffay on "Friends," recently shot down rumors of a series reunion, saying she's "too old" to revive her role as the ditzy but lovable eccentric.

Kudrow, 49, starred in the iconic television series for its entire 10-year run, but isn't interested in a reunion.

"I wouldn't even have an interest in seeing what those people are doing 10 years later as parents that have to be responsible," Kudrow told HuffPost Live. "It would be so different that it wouldn't be 'Friends' anymore. Have I talked anybody out of wanting a reunion?"

She said she's not sure about who she would choose to play Phoebe should a reunion ever be a possibility.

"I haven’t thought about who I'd cast," Kudrow said. "I just know that they would have to recast because I'm too old."

Other cast members have also put the kibosh on a potential reunion.

"I don't want to see old Joey," actor Matt LeBlanc told last year. "Everyone’s going to have different vision of what those characters are like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people. A couple of people will go, 'That's what I thought!' but for the most part, it’s going to let people down. It's better to let them just think."

Even "Friends" co-creator Marta Kauffman doesn’t think it would be a good idea.

"I'm gonna clear this up right now: No. It's not happening!" she told E! Online earlier this year of any future reunion show. "'Friends' was about that time in your life when your friends are your family and once you have a family, there's no need anymore. I'd rather people go, 'Oh, please, please' than, 'I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.'"
