  • Can you believe that the first episode of "Friends" was released 24 years ago?

  • How old does that make you feel?

  • But there is no way we can forget the main six, our lovable Friends!

  • Many of us grew up with them on our screens.

  • But where are these actors now?

  • Who rose to the top of Hollywood scene, and who hasn't been welcomed in any other

  • studios after the end of the show?

  • Who is still friends with the other members of the show, and who's avoiding them?

  • Find the answers in our video!

  • Jennifer Aniston

  • We wouldn't be lying if we said that since the end of "Friends", Jennifer's career has only been going upwards.

  • She made herself a big movie star.

  • Aniston's first role on the big screen was the part in the movie Bruce Almighty in 2003

  • where she played with Jim Carrey and Morgan Freeman.

  • Quite good company, huh?

  • Among her other successes are The Break-Up, Marley&Me, Horrible Bosses and We're The Millers.

  • The dance in the latter one has really highlighted the range of the actress's talents.

  • Contracts worth million of dollars, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2012, the title

  • of the most beautiful woman in the world.

  • Oh, yes, there is a lot we can envy!

  • However, success in career life doesn't guarantee success in a relationship.

  • It's been 10 years since Jennifer divorced Brad Pitt, and that's twice as much as their

  • marriage lasted.

  • Yet, the tabloids don't want to leave Jennifer alone, by constantly publishing the new rumors

  • about their possible reunion.

  • Her second marriage with the actor and screenwriter Justin Theroux lasted a bit more than 2 years.

  • The press has started a fuss that this break-up happened due to Aniston's inability to have children.

  • In the interview for InStyle Jennifer confessed that she'd like to forbid the press to using

  • her pictures with her hands around her tummy with the caption "Finally pregnant!"

  • They don't know what I've been through medically or emotionally.

  • There is a pressure on women to be mothers, and if they are not, then they're deemed

  • damaged goods.

  • Maybe my purpose on this planet isn't to procreate.

  • Maybe I have other things I'm supposed to do?”, - she said.

  • Despite having men walking in and out of her life, there is one person Jennifer has 100%

  • confidence in.

  • This is her best friend both in "Friends" and in real life - the actress Courtney Cox.

  • The girls met on the set of "Friends" and despite being busy, have always had time for

  • a heart-to-heart conversation with each other for good 20 years.

  • Jenn has even become the godmother for Courtney's daughter Coco.

  • Courteney Cox

  • Jennifer originally was tried out for the role of Monica and Courtney actually auditioned

  • for the role of Rachel but as we know, they made the right decisions after all.

  • After Friends, producer Marc Cherry's first priority for the role of Susan Mayer in Desperate

  • Housewives was Courtney Cox, but this was not to happen, as Courtney was unable to devote

  • her time to the role due to her pregnancy.

  • However, the birth of her child didn't prove to be fatal for her career.

  • She appeared in the movies November, Zoom, and the re-make of The Longest Yard.

  • She also starred in three episodes of Scrubs, and in 2009 she got the lead role of Jules

  • Cobb on ABC's famous show Cougar Town with 6 seasons overall.

  • After divorcing the actor David Arquette who she'd been married for more than 10 years,

  • Courtney started dating the member of the band Snow Patrol, Johnny McDaid, in 2013,

  • and a year later they announced their engagement on Twitter.

  • Though, it doesn't seem like Cox is going to tie the knot with her fiance Johnny McDaid.

  • According to the latest news, the actress is afraid of getting hitched to Johnny,

  • because of her best friend Jennifer Anniston's recent heartbreak.

  • Despite the fact that 54-year-old Courtney Cox is 12 years older than her sweetheart,

  • Johnny McDaid is crazy about this slender brunette.

  • Johnny revealed that his love for Courtney is so strong that it can be too intense to

  • think about as there is "a lot to lose" if anything goes wrong.

  • In pretty much every interview Courtney is asked whether the fans should expect the sequel

  • of "Friends."

  • The actress has an irrefutable answer.

  • "They're rebooting everything, but I don't know how does that work with Friends, though?

  • That was about people in their, you know, 20s, 30s.

  • The show isn't about people in their 40s or 50s.

  • And if we have the same problems then that's just sad.

  • That's not fun!" - says Courtney.

  • Lisa Kudrow

  • Lisa Kudrow is the oldest among the other actors of the show.

  • When she started starring in the show, she was 31, and this summer the actress celebrated

  • her 55th birthday!

  • The role of the eccentric rebel Phoebe, who works as a massage therapist in the afternoon,

  • and writes author's songs in the evening, has brought Kudrow Primetime Emmy Award, two

  • Screen Actors Guild Awards and a Golden Globe Award nomination.

  • Kudrow made international headlines again in 2015 when Taylor Swift asked her to perform

  • Phoebe's infamous Smelly Cat at a Los Angeles concert.

  • She's been married to Michel Stern, French advertising executive, for longer than 20 years

  • They had their son Julian Murray Stem in 1998.

  • Lisa's pregnancy became a part of the script of Friends in seasons 4 and 5, when Phoebe's

  • character had triplets.

  • After the filming was over, Lisa went on to produce, write and even star in HBO;s 2005

  • comedy series The Comeback which actually had its own comeback nine years after that,

  • with its second season airing in 2014.

  • I Love You to The Girl On The Train.

  • Her latest work was 2017's The Boss Baby where she did the voice of Mrs. Templeton.

  • When asked about the possibility of a Friends TV reunion, she said: "I don't see it happening.

  • What would it be about?"

  • The thing we liked about that show is it was like 20-somethings and they were their

  • own family and now they all have families.

  • So what are we going to watch?”

  • Matt LeBlanc

  • After the amazing success of Friends, which earnt Matt $1 million per episode as Joey

  • Tribbiani, his life seemed to go downwards.

  • The spin-off of Friends, show Joey, where Matt played the leading part, failed in 2006.

  • About the same time his little daughter Marina was diagnosed with cortical dysplasia, an

  • illness which affects the bones, brain and motor skills.

  • His marriage to Melissa McKnight suddenly became surrounded by whispers of his repeated adultery.

  • Following the break-up with Melissa and his daughter's health problems, he avoided the

  • limelight, asking his agent to "lose my number for a few years."

  • "For years and years, I barely left the house.

  • I was burnt out.

  • I wanted to not have a schedule, not be somewhere.

  • I was in a position to do that.

  • It was a very dark time.

  • I almost had a nervous breakdown.” said Matt.

  • In 2011, Matt LeBlanc started playing a fictional version of himself in Episodes which got him

  • a Golden Globe for Best Actor in TV series Comedy.

  • After making his appearance on the 8th season of Top Gear, it was announced in February

  • 2016 that Matt is to be one of the new presenters of the show, and he still presents it now.

  • He is currently playing Adam Burns in Man With A Plan, the CBS's sitcom.

  • Fortunately Marina, who is now 13, outgrew her illness, but Matt confessed he is as devoted

  • to her as much as when she was ill.

  • He said: “I remember when my daughter, Marina, was born.

  • The second I laid eyes on her, I was in love, and I had never felt that way before.

  • I couldn't believe it.

  • I knew from that moment there was nothing that would ever stop me from loving her - even

  • if she crashed my Ferrari.”

  • He also added that he would like to remarry if he finds the right one for him.

  • So, girls, Joey is still single!

  • Matthew Perry

  • Chandler migh not be as smart as Ross or as chill as Joey, but he might be the nicest

  • one out of them, plus, he's "the funny one."

  • And his relationship with Monica has always "awed" the spectators.

  • But in the real world it was anything but a perfect life for Matthew Perry.

  • The fans of the show know that Perry suffered addiction to alcohol and opiates while filming

  • the show.

  • After a heavy injury in a jetski accident in 1997, he was prescribed Vicodin.

  • The problem was that he couldn't stop taking them even after he didn't them anymore, in

  • fact, he got addicted.

  • In an interview for the People magazine, Perry admitted that with the pills he "felt better

  • than he had ever felt in his entire life."

  • He was in rehab for a few times.

  • "Getting sober is a really hard thing to do," he admitted.

  • "You can't have a drug problem for 30 years and then expect to have it be solved in 28

  • days," he told The Hollywood Reporter.

  • Perry made the rule for himself to never drink on set, but by 2000, he admits he was often

  • detoxing back stage, shaking and sweating.

  • And even more, he "went to work in extreme cases of hangover."

  • Three years of Friends are a bit blurry for Matthew.

  • As he said in a BBC interview, he can't recall a big chunk of the show because of his addiction.

  • "I don't remember three years of it.

  • So none of those...somewhere between season 3 and 6." he said.

  • He now tries to be a help to other, saying: "I've had a lot of ups and downs in my life.

  • "I've learned a lot from my failures, but the best thing about me is if an alcoholic

  • comes up to me and says, 'Will you help me stop drinking?'

  • I will say, 'Yes.

  • I know how to do that.'"

  • Matthew Perry opened his former home for those in need in 2013.

  • According to the interview in the People magazine, he opened Perry's House for men who seek a

  • 12-step meditation and sobriety program.

  • With time, he even gave up his four bedroom Malibu home in order to help others.

  • Perry's House had a 2-year success, but, in 2015, the program unfortunately hit a bump

  • on the road due to some financial problems.

  • He revealed that he was going to keep running the rehab center once he found an affordable location.

  • In spite of having a life full of ups and downs, Perry keeps transforming his problems

  • into a positive purpose, and for that, he deserves a big ovation.

  • "My life has a lot more meaning now that I try to help people," Perry said to The Hill.
