‘Friends’ Cast Then and Now: See How They’ve Changed in 21 Years
It's been awhile — 21 years to be exact! — since our favorite Friends first started getting together at Central Perk for coffee and LOLs. And since we miss these besties so much, it's time to take a look at the cast then and now.
The pilot first aired on NBC on September 22, 1994, when the main six cast members were all in their 20s and early 30s. Time really flies when you're talking about paleontology, getting your head stuck in a turkey, and making tons of candy for your neighbors!
Check out the photos below to see just how much the cast has changed from the '90s up to the final Season 10 in 2004 to now.
Jennifer Aniston in 1994, 2004, and 2015
Jennifer, 46, was 25 when she first started playing the role of Rachel Green. We don't know where the world would be if it wasn't for "The Rachel" hairdo.
Matt LeBlanc in 1994, 2004, and 2015
Matt, 48, started off his days on Friends when he was 27. Can you believe how long it’s been since Joey Tribbiani first started his love affair with every sandwich in NYC?
Courteney Cox in 1994, 2004, and 2015
51-year-old Courteney was 30 when she was cast as Monica Geller on the hit NBC comedy — and she's been keeping her apartments completely spotless ever since.
Matthew Perry in 1994, 2004, and 2015
Matthew, now 46, landed the role of Chandler Bing when he was 25. In the words of Janice: OH. MY. GAWD.
Lisa Kudrow in 1994, 2004, and 2015
Lisa was cast as Phoebe Buffay at age 31. Now at 52, we think she's officially perfected "Smelly Cat."
David Schwimmer in 1994, 2004, and 2015
David, now 48, was 27 when he first started playing Ross Geller on Friends. But we don't think Ross would be too impressed that it's been 21 years since the show aired — that's nothing when you speak paleontologist.
