Julianna Margulies Reacts to Rumored Archie Panjabi ‘Good Wife’ Feud

Alicia Florrick isn't here for it. Julianna Margulies kept it brief when she was asked recently about rumors of a feud with her former Good Wife costar Archie Panjabi.

"It's all silly gossip, and I don't want to go there," Margulies, 49, told The New York Times during a joint interview with Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King, which the paper published on Thursday, April 28.

As previously reported, viewers speculated that Panjabi, 43, left the CBS drama in 2015 after season 6 because of tension between the two stars. Fans became even more suspicious when it was revealed that the actresses didn't actually film their final scene together.

Margulies originally addressed the rumors during an interview with Vulture last October. "There's no story there, sorry … I actually had heard [that rumor] and I feel that it has been talked about and answered," she said at the time. "I feel people just like to have gossip or make something into something that isn't there."

She added: "It was shot the way Robert wanted to shoot it, and the story line, too," she said. "You also have to remember, there’s difficulty … [Panjabi] was also doing another show, called The Fall. I went along with whatever Robert asked me to do and I did it happily."

Panjabi didn't sit quietly, though. The star caused quite the buzz when she retweeted Margulies' interview, and wrote: "@TheFallTV was not even in production at that time and I was in New York ready to film the scene!"

The Good Wife series finale airs on CBS Sunday, May 8, at 9 p.m. ET.
