15 facts about the “Friends” cast you probably don’t know

Friends is one of those shows that everyone has seen countless times and because of this everyone thinks they know everything there is to know about it and about the cast. You couldn’t be more wrong. There’s so much that you don’t know about the cast of Friends.

1. Lunch date

During the 10 years of filming, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow had lunch together every day. What’s even more interesting is that they ate the same thing for lunch every day. Talk about a commitment. How did they not get bored doing that?

2. Duck

It was a little strange, but incredibly adorable when Chandler and Joey got a chick and duck as pets for their apartment and essentially became parents. Lisa Kudrow, however, was terrified of the duck in real life. You would never have known from looking at the scenes where she’s with the duck, but she had a genuine fear.

3. Ellen DeGeneres

How different would the show have been if Ellen DeGeneres was in it? There would have been a completely different vibe that’s for sure. Turns out that Ellen DeGeneres was offered the role of Phoebe, but she turned it down. We love Ellen, but we’re glad that she did. Lisa Kudrow was the perfect Phoebe and we can’t imagine anyone else playing her.

4. SNL

Speaking of turning down jobs, Jennifer Aniston turned down a job with Saturday Night Live so that she could play Rachel Green on Friends. We love Jennifer Aniston, but it would have been weird to see her as a regular on SNL. She was definitely made for Friends.

5. The Rachel and Monica switch

Originally the creators of the show wanted Jennifer Aniston to play Monica and Courtney Cox to play Rachel, but the two actresses wanted to play the other part. Luckily, they both got what they wanted and we got the amazing show that we all know and love.
