We all have dreamed of having friends in real life the way it's shown on the show. The show taught us so much about friendship. Remembering the classic show, today, we will take you through a few fun and interesting facts about 'Friends' that anybody would love to know.
No Sex Agreement
Apparently, the entire cast of the show 'Friends' had to sign an agreement that they wouldn't sleep with one another while filming the show. But later, Courtney Cox in one of her interviews confirmed that it was just a rumour and they didn't sign any agreement of that sort. So, did they sleep with one another?
The Original Name Of The Show
So, way before the show was named as 'Friends' many titles were considered and rejected. Including 'Friends like us', 'Insomnia Cafe' and 'Across the Hall'. But the writers ditched all the names and simply stuck to 'Friends' just before its premiere in September 1994.
The Jokes Pie Chart
For any huge fan of Friends', it would be hard to choose one favorite character, as all off them are legendary. So, the writers of the show had their own idea to balance all the characters. What they did was maintain a pie chart to ensure every character got to say equal amount of jokes every episode.
Like Every Other Man
The chemistry and friendship that existed between Ross, Joey and Chandler was one of the most fun factors of the show. These actors wouldn't play and fool around only while filming, but during the breaks too. They trio would play video games during every break.
Jennifer Aniston's Laziness
Apparently, Jennifer Aniston was very lazy and laid-back. She always reached late on sets. As the crew realized she was mending her habits, they had an intervention for her laid-back nature. Jennifer Aniston said how the boys had an intervention to rub it in her face.
No Bedroom At Monica's
Monica's apartment was the venue for many of the scenes in the show, but it was always the hall that was used because there was no bedroom in the flat. The few times they shot the bedroom scenes, the hall was changed into a bed room and converted back after the filming.
Phoebe Thought Chandler Was Gay!
Kundrow looks back in time and laughs when she remembers the time when she thought Chandler was actually gay. Phoebe thought chandler wasn't into women for the whole of two seasons. Only later when Chandler and Monica were paired up, did she realize the truth.
Phoebe Was Actually Pregnant
When Lisa Kundrow was pregnant with her son, she was worried about the character Phoebe. But the writer included pregnancy in the story and Phoebe was shown pregnant as a surrogate mother for her brother's triplets.
However, Courtney Cox's pregnancy couldn't be included in the story when she was carrying in real life during the finale season, because the character Monica was unable to conceive. So they had to cover Courtney's baby bump with clothes and make up.
