They may have played the happiest BFFs on TV, but in real life, the cast members of friends haven’t exactly had it easy. We decided to bring to you the cast’s darkest & weirdest secrets.
Jennifer Anniston was estranged from her mother:
For well over a decade, Jennifer annsiton was estranged from her mother, Nancy Dow. The reason? In 1999, Dow published a tell-all book called From Mother & Daughter to Friends: A Memoir. Although Aniston claimed in 2015 in a interview with The Hollywood Reporter that she & Dow are “all fine now,” the Emmy-winner admitted things were pretty rough for a while, especially when she was growing up. Aniston explained: “She was very critical of me. Because she was a model, she was gorgeous, stunning. I wasn’t. I never was. I honestly don’t think of myself in that sort of light, which is fine. She was also very unforgiving. She would hold grudges that I found very petty.” Dow divorced anniston’s father, Days of our lives star, John Aniston, in 1980. Meanwhile, Dow was not invited to her daughter’s wedding, to brad pitt in 2000, or her 2015 wedding Justin Theroux.
Jennifer Anniston didn’t invite half the cast to her wedding:
Also missing from the guest list for Anniston’s surprise nupitals to Justin, half the cast of friends. Just days after news hit TMZ, it was revealed that Anniston’s co-stars Matt Leblanc, Mathew Perry & David Schwimmer didn’t get invites. Matt Leblanc told people: “I think she’s happy. That’s all I care about. If she wanted me there, I would have been there.” Mathew Perry admitted to be being “surprised” by the news, saying, “It was a surprise to me, as well. I wasn’t invited. So what can you do?” So much for being friends.
Mathew perry Battling addiction for years:
Mathew Perry has been open and honest about his struggles with substance abuse, which sent him to rehab twice during the peak of Friends’ success. But the now sober actor managed to shock the world again when he admitted to BBC2 Radio in 2016 that his addictions caused him to forget filming three years of the show. When asked to pick his least favourite episode of Friends, his answer was, well, sobering: “I think the answer is, I don’t remember three years of it."
Matt Leblanc had 2 DUIs:
Speaking to the UK’s telegraph in 2014, leblanc let it slip that he had been arrested multiple times in the past for driving under the influence. After discussing his character’s DUI arrest in season 3 of episodes, he revealed that he’d gotten busted for driving under the influence twice. He elaborated: “When I was young and stupid. I wasn’t driving fast, just crooked. The press never got hold of the mugshots. I was lucky.” For his sake, we hope TMZ didn’t read that interview.
Matt Leblanc surprised his wife with a divorce:
In 2006, Leblanc shocked everyone, including his wife Mellisa, when he filed for divorce and had “hoped for a reconciliation.” That turned out to be absolutely impossible as it turned out because Leblanc was already dating his Joey Co-star, Andrea Anders, as early as January. According to people, some alleged that Leblanc’s relationship with Anders- whom he dated for 8 years until they split in 2015- was one of the causes of his divorce. Leblanc choose not to comment.
