June 6 (UPI) -- Friends alum Matthew Perry would "say no" to a formal reunion.

The 47-year-old actor, who played Chandler Bing on the series, explained in an interview with Variety why he isn't interested in reviving the NBC sitcom.

"I have this recurring nightmare -- I'm not kidding about this. When I'm asleep, I have this nightmare that we do Friends again and nobody cares. We do a whole series, we come back, and nobody cares about it. So if anybody asks me, I'm gonna say no," Perry said.

"The thing is: We ended on such a high. We can't beat it. Why would we go and do it again?" he added.

Perry was noticeably absent in February 2016 when co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer reunited to honor director James Burrows. He said in a Build series interview, however, that he wasn't sad to miss the TV special.

"Not really, because it really wasn't a reunion. It was just six people getting together for a Jim Burrows special. It wasn't really a reunion. And I couldn't do it because I was in London doing my play," the star explained in April 2016.

Friends had a 10-season run from 1994 to 2004. Perry denied on Watch What Happens Live in May that his co-stars slept together during filming, saying there "was no sex between any of them."
