It has been 25 years since we met Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler and Ross
It may have been many years since Friends ended, but it doesn’t feel that way. We still love the series about the group of American friends. So crazy that we can still watch episode after episode after episode. Are you curious about how the Friends cast is doing? We will tell you.
The series is still immensely popular, and the characters and actors are still loved by many.
Jennifer Aniston – Rachel Green
Certainly when an actor plays a long time in a certain series, it can be difficult for actors to be seen in a different light. Jennifer Aniston played Rachel Green for ten years, but the actress still managed to gain name recognition with other roles. She has played in many successful films, including Cake, The Bounty Hunter and Marley & Me.
And even now Jennifer is not stopping. The actress recently appeared in the Netflix hit Murder Mystery and will soon be featured in the television show The Morning Show. It is clear that Jennifer’s career is still on the rise. Her private life, on the other hand, is more turbulent. She had a relationship with actor Brad Pitt for years before the two wed, but their marriage failed after five years. In 2011, she started a relationship with scriptwriter Justin Theroux. They were engaged in 2012, but that relationship ended in 2017.
Courteney Cox – Monica Geller
Before Courteney appeared in Friends, she already had several roles to her name. Yet she is best known for her role as Monica Geller in Friends and for her role as Jules Cobb in Cougar Town. The recordings for the latter series took place after her Friends period. Courteney did so well as Jules that in 2010 she received a Golden Globe nomination for her performance. After that, it became a bit quieter for the actress. Her last role was a one-off performance in the Shameless series in 2018. Two years earlier, she was the second-to-last role in the TV movie Charity Case.
In 1999, the actress married actor David Arquette. The two celebrated their love in 2004 with the birth of their daughter Coco. Unfortunately, the marriage of the two did not last. In 2010, the couple split up and in 2013 the divorce papers were signed. Courteney found a new companion at the end of 2013 in Johnny McDaid, band member of the popular Snow Patrol group. He even proposed in 2014, but that same year the two broke off the engagement. Nevertheless, the couple is still together.
Matthew Perry – Chandler Bing
Matthew is still best known for his role as Chandler in Friends. After his time on Friends, he played many other roles in films and series, but none managed to match the success of Friends. His acting career has been stalled for a while. From 2015 to 2017, he played Oscar Madison in The Odd Couple, and in 2017 he was seen in a few episodes of both The Good Fight and The Kennedys After Camelot, but his resume has not expanded ever since.
Matthew’s private life is turbulent. From 1995 to 2012, he had various relationships, including with actresses Yasmine Bleeth, Julia Roberts and Lizzy Caplan. Currently, it seems the actor is going through life as a bachelor.
Addiction and health problems
In 1997, the actor was in rehab for 28 days for his addiction to pain relievers. Things seemed to go well after that, but he was re-admitted in 2001 for his addiction to pain relievers, methadone and alcohol. Unfortunately, it does not seem to end there. The actor was spotted by paparazzi at the end of August this year while roaming the streets of New York. According to various sources, he looked unkempt and according to his closest companions the actor is drinking again. He would also not want to leave his hotel room. He only does this when he has to go to the hospital, something that happens more often according to trusted sources. He’s no stranger to this struggle. A while ago Matthew turned out to have a gastrointestinal perforation. This condition creates a hole in the stomach or intestine and may have been caused by excessive alcohol consumption, which further fuels the rumors of alleged alcohol abuse.
