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.
Besides that, she is also one of the executive producers of the TLC reality program Who Do
You Think You Are.
The actress has been friends with Jennifer Anniston and Courtney Cox, and she even played
an episodic role of a psychatrist in the show Cougar Town along with Courtney Cox.
Besides working on TV, Kudrow has also made her appearance in plenty of films.
Lisa has earned her credit as a big movie star starting from P.S.
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.
"It's also a selfish thing - it makes you feel better than anything else will."
When asked during interviews if Matthew could star in the sequel of Friends, he also has
an irrefutable answer.
When I'm asleep, I have this nightmare that we do Friends again and nobody cares,” Perry said.
“We do a whole series, we come back, and nobody cares about it.
So if anybody asks me, I'm gonna say no.
The thing is: we ended on such a high.
We can't beat it.
Why would we go and do it again?”
David Schwimmer
Since Friends ended, David Schwimmer has had plenty of other film roles, including
the voice of Melman in Madagascar, the animated film, Big Nothing and Nothing But The Truth.
David made his debut as a feature film director with Run Fatboy Run, the 2007's comedy.
Two years ago he played the lawyer Robert Kardashian in American Crime Story.
For this role he got his second Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting
Actor in a Limited Series or Movie.
David Schwimmer also played himself in a splendid scene opposite LeBlanc's fictionalized version
of himself in Episodes, when he made his appearance in a number of Web Therapy episodes with Lisa Kudrow.
This fall David also starred in the TV show Will&Grace.
According to most fans of Friends, his character in this show is a completely plausible forty
something year-old version of Ross Geller.
The personal life of the actor has also had quite great changes last year, as he split
with British artist Zoe Buckman, mother of his daughter Cleo, after 7 years of marriage.
The actor confessed that the fame of Friends "really messed with my relationship with other
people."
Sadly, in real life it seems David isn't too friendly with Jennifer Aniston, because she
didn't invite him to her wedding, though, Courteney Cox hinted that he is the reason
why a Friends movie hasn't got off the ground. Ouch.
