The Friends Cast Now And Then: See How Much They've Changed!

It’s been over two decades since the most popular group of “Friends” warmed our hearts and entertained us on the small screen. But do you ever wonder how much their lives have changed since they were on the show versus how they are today? See how they’ve been doing!

1. JENNIFER ANISTON AS RACHEL GREEN

Aniston made it big as her character Rachel over ten long seasons. But why did we love Rachel? Because she wasn’t afraid to make a fool of herself, she admitted when she messed up and her priorities straight.

Since the show ended, Aniston divorced Brad Pitt and married Justin Theroux. She’s also quite successful in big-budget films like “Rumor Has it”, “We’re The Millers”, “Horrible Bosses 2”, and “Cake”.

3. COURTNEY COX AS MONICA GELLER

We all loved Cox’s interpretation of Monica, an obsessive, bossy, and often nitpicky gal who might have been the most underrated character on “Friends”.

Cox has since appeared on other shows like “Dirt”, “Scrubs”, “Go On”, “Web Therapy”, and “Cougar Town”. She even replied her role as Gale Weathers Riley in the fourth “Scream” film too.

5. MATTHEW PERRY AS CHANDLER BING

Perry’s adorable awkward smile landed him the role of Chandler, a man who wasn’t afraid to voice his thoughts and could easily pull witty comebacks out of thin air.

Since “Friends” ended, Perry has taken on leading roles in “Studio 60”, “Sunset Strip”, Mr. Sunshine”, and “Go On”. But now he’s back and making audiences laugh in the CBS revival of “The Odd Couple.”

7. DAVID SCHWIMMER AS ROSS GELLER

We all fell in love with David’s awkward character Ross, who tried hard to fit in, taught Chandler the “Hug and Roll”, and kept a cool head when his best friend and his ex-girlfriend got together.

After “Friends”, Schwimmer has kept busy by voicing the animated character Melman in the “Madagascar film franchise. But he’s also tried his hand in the theater, particularly the Off-Broadway play “Fault Lines”.

9. LISA KUDROW AS PHOEBE BUFFAY

We all miss Kudrow’s Phoebe, who was an optimist, a hardcore animal activist, honest, and always sent good vibes to everyone, even though she was a bit ditzy at times.
