Recently, E! News had the opportunity to speak with Elliott Gould and Christina Pickles. During the interview, Gould and Pickles discussed working with Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt, who ended their relationship in 2005.

"Bradley came to meet his wife, he was married to Jennifer at that point, and Jennifer liked for me and Brad to hang out together," Gould recalled about his "Ocean's Eleven" co-star.

Gould added, "You know, I like him a lot. And that was great to be able to be working with him and working with Jennifer. So, I mean, it's in a way, this is a very extended family."

Pickles chimed in, saying she hadn't seen Pitt since she played his mother in "Legends of the Fall" and that she was delighted to see him again. The encounter was as if they had known each other forever, she said.

The last time Pickles and Gould appeared on "Friends" was in 2004. To this day, they still remember the show and their on-air offspring, Ross (David Schwimmer) and Monica (Courteney Cox), fondly.

The chance to see all six principal cast members gather to talk about the show is quite rare.

Gould derived a lot of inspiration from the success and the opportunity to work with these young people who have now become icons of their own right. It is extremely valuable to the actor, he said.

Meanwhile, the "Friends" reunion gave more than just Aniston, Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and Schwimmer to fans. There are several guests, including Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga.

The chance to see all six principal cast members gather to talk about the show is quite rare. In recent years, the press was typically told not to ask questions about "Friends" when interviewing the show's former stars.

The reunion features table reads, trivia contests, fashion displays, archival footage, as well as celebrity interviews. So far, there has been a largely positive response to the special.

Meanwhile, some important guest stars were notably absent from China's version of the "Friends reunion special." Acclaimed musicians Bieber, BTS, and Gaga, were not included.

On the three Chinese streaming platforms with broadcast rights, fans discovered that all three stars were cut. According to reports, footage of the stars was cut for allegedly insulting China in the past.
