She also said she's not "surprised or upset" that their opinions differ on the matter. "Jennifer is an actress and playing the role of Rachel Green ... and Ross/Rachel is the relationship that was canon endgame," said Willett, who used her fandom-related Twitter account to express her theory. "So that's what they wrote, so that's what she was told to play, so of course, that's what she's invested in."

"I absolutely understand why she would feel that way," Willett said. "But I also completely stand by everything that I said."

"Sometimes the role [actors] create expands or shifts or is adapted or reinterpreted by fandom in all kinds of different ways, and those things might be contradictory but that doesn't make either one of them right or wrong," Willett continued. "There is a lot of validity in reexamining the way we watched this relationship unfold on TV a decade ago in light of the way our cultural perceptions of relationships have evolved since then."
