With new projects popping up left and right, we thought it was time we caught up with America’s most beloved BFFs!
It’s been nearly six years since we’ve watched Rachel, Ross and the gang dish about love and life at Central Perk, but even though they’re not all huddled in one New York City coffee shop/apartment building, you can still catch these ‘Friends’ on the big screen, small screen and every media outlet in between. No matter where you are, they’ll be there for you.”
After a long illustrious career that began in the ’80s with a Bruce Springsteen video, Courteney Cox is finally getting her time in the sun. Happily married to David Arquette and mother to 5-year-old Coco, Courteney (Monica Geller), 45, has won heaps of praise—and a Golden Globe nod—for her role as a sassy cougar on ABC’s TV comedy Cougar Town and is currently creating Scream 4 with her hubby. (You could also call her “Most Business Savvy.”)
Seemingly gracing the covers of the hottest magazines every week, Jennifer Aniston, at 40, still has one of the most bangin’ bods on the planet thanks to daily yoga sessions with Mandy Ingber.
After being very publicly dumped by her hot hubby Brad Pitt in 2005 for Angelina Jolie, Jen has dated some of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors, including rocker John Mayer and comedian Vince Vaughn. In the meantime, her professional life is thriving—with eight slated productions and another four already in-production (including a 1940s musical, The Goree Girls and The Baster with the adorable Jason Bateman), it looks like Jen is going to be dominating the big screen well into 2013.
Most Likely To Be Wearing Sassy Pants:
46-year-old Lisa Kudrow, who played the earnest and hysterical Phoebe Buffay, still has us in stitches every time we see her on a show. Most recently, the snarky blond—mother to 10-year-old Julian Murray—played pal Courteney Cox’s evil dermatologist on Cougar Town. Lisa’s latest role on the silver screen, the comedy Easy A, co-starring Amanda Bynes and Twilight‘s Cam Gigandet, will premiere March 19.
We probably could have deemed Lisa “Most Normal” as well—she’s been married to French advertising executive Michael Stern since 1995.
Most Likely To Make A Comeback:
Since his Friends spin-off, Joey, was cancelled in 2006, Matt LeBlanc has been really flying under the radar. The family man has been focusing on playing dad to his five-year-old daughter Marina; he divorced Marina’s mom, Melissa McKnight in 2006. Matt, 42, is making his grand return to the small screen with his new Showtime comedy, Episodes, which starts production in the spring.
Most Likely To Be A Big Kid Forever:
Mathew Perry, 40, played lovable Chandler Bing, whose sense of humor seemed to be no less evolved than a good episode of Beavis & Butthead. But Chandler—unlike Matthew—finally settled down and married Monica Gellar. Matt himself is still a swinging single after a failed relationship with Gilmore Girls actress Lauren Graham. The last we saw of Matthew since Friends: Playing a grown-up Zac Efron in 17 Again. Now, just like fellow ‘friend’ Matt LeBlanc, Matthew was supposed to star in his own Showtime series but instead has moved to ABC, where he’ll star in Mr. Sunshine about—wait for it—an immature 40-year-old man. Don’t you love when art imitates life?
Most Likely To Watch Cartoons:
David Schwimmer, who played the lovable Ross Gellar, surprised us the most with his career path. Since wrapping up his Friends role, David, 43, has focused his attention on directing (Run Fatboy, Run) and performing in theater. Another shocker? Hearing his voice as Melman the giraffe in the oh-so-enjoyable animated Madagascar flicks.
David’s love life hasn’t been nearly as immature—He’s been in a serious relationship with British photographer, Zoe Bruckman, since 2007.
