From The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to Friends, a body language expert wades in on what TV show reunion snaps can truly reveal
What’s this? A reunion?
Only Matthew Perry was missing at this Friends photo op when director James Burrows got the cast together. Look how delighted Jennifer Aniston is to be there.
Body of evidence
“For a group so culturally marinated in ‘fun’, this gaggle looks disconnected and awkward, like they were all thrown into shot from different planets,” says body-language expert and author Judi James. “By keeping her seat at the front while the others fan out behind her, Jennifer looks like the doyenne of the show or that she’s gone on to bigger and better things. Her expression suggests mild bemusement, with one brow raised and a complete lack of teeth showing in her smile. Matt (LeBlanc) looks dominant and he also looks like the one who’s grown up and grown older happily with the most genuine, confident smile of them all.”
