OK! (Australia) - - Contents -

BRUCE WIL­LIS’ CAMEO WAS A BET

Bruce was con­vinced his 2000 flick The Whole Nine Yards, in which he starred with Friends’ Matthew Perry, would be a dud. So much so, that Matt made a bet: if the film hit num­ber one, the Hol­ly­wood star would ap­pear on the show for free. Clearly, Bruce is a man of his word!

JEN AL­MOST LEFT THE SE­RIES

Be­fore the hit show filmed its fi­nal sea­son, Jen­nifer Anis­ton con­fessed she wasn’t sure ‘how much’ her char­ac­ter still had in her, and qui­etly dis­cussed leav­ing the show. Thank good­ness she stuck it out!

DAVID SCHWIMMER DIDN’T AU­DI­TION

The role of Ross was al­ways meant for David! Co-cre­ator Marta Kauff­man said they met David the year be­fore Friends be­gan, and he ‘stuck’.

THEY WERE MEANT TO BE A FOUR­SOME

It’s al­most in­con­ceiv­able, but orig­i­nally the clan was only meant to be made up of four stars! Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) and Chan­dler (Matthew Perry) were ac­tu­ally cast in sup­port­ing roles.

JEN­NIFER HATED ‘THE RACHEL’

You know that hair­style we all raced out to get? Well, Jen loathed it. ‘I thought it was the ugli­est hair­cut I’ve ever seen,’ she spills.

ONLY Y TWO STARS HAVEN’T EN’T KISSED!

A ded­i­cated cated fan has done the re­search ch and con­firmed that, apart part from a Mon­ica a and Phoebe e smooch, h, ev­ery other combo of cast­mate kisses has hap­pened at some stage – both on and off the screen.

MON­ICA & JOEY WERE THE OG POWER COU­PLE

It only took one episode for cre­ators to ditch the idea of Mon­ica (Courteney Cox) and Joey (Matt Leblanc) be­ing any­thing more than friends.

PHOEBE BE WAS CAST AS A GOTH… …

Re­al­ity Bites es star Janeane ne Garo­falo was go­ing to play her, but she de­cided to turn down the role that even­tu­ally went to Lisa.

THE CAST CA BANNED RACHEL RACHE AND JOEY FROM H HOOK­ING UP

‘It felt wildly w in­ap­pro­pri­ate,’ saysm says Matt Leblanc of whe where Joey and Rach we were head­ing at one st stage. He says the ca cast told cre­ators, ‘It doesn’t feel right.’
