The cast of the beloved sitcom "Friends" has finally revealed where they think their characters would be today. In an exclusive interview, the stars opened up about their thoughts on how the lives of Monica, Chandler, Ross, Rachel, Joey, and Phoebe would have played out after the series finale in 2004.
Courteney Cox, who portrayed the organized and meticulous Monica Geller, believes that Monica and Chandler would still be happily married and raising their children. She imagines Monica as the ever-efficient mother, while Chandler continues to crack jokes and work in a job that he dislikes. Cox believes that Monica would most likely be running a restaurant and still fiercely competitive in her pursuit of perfection.
Matt LeBlanc, who won hearts as the lovable struggling actor Joey Tribbiani, sees Joey as the ultimate bachelor. He envisions Joey living in a spacious bachelor pad in Los Angeles, still going on auditions and enjoying the single life. LeBlanc jokes that Joey would probably have his own dating show or be a host on a game show, as his character's personality would naturally lead him in those directions.
Lisa Kudrow, who portrayed the eccentric and free-spirited Phoebe Buffay, believes that Phoebe would have become a well-known musician. Kudrow sees her character using her unique voice and songwriting skills to make a name for herself in the music industry. Phoebe would also be involved in charity work and continuing to spread her positive energy to those around her.
David Schwimmer, who played the intellectual and somewhat awkward Ross Geller, thinks that Ross would have resumed his career as a paleontologist. Schwimmer imagines Ross as a well-respected professor, still passionate about dinosaurs and teaching. He also believes that Ross would have found love again, possibly with a fellow professor or someone he meets through his work.
Jennifer Aniston, who portrayed the fashionable and independent Rachel Green, thinks that Rachel would have pursued her career in fashion and become a successful businesswoman. Aniston believes that Rachel would have settled down and married, possibly starting her own fashion empire or working in a high-powered fashion company.
Finally, Matthew Perry, who played the sarcastic and witty Chandler Bing, imagines Chandler in a job he dislikes but has stuck with for financial stability. Perry sees his character as a stay-at-home dad, taking care of the children while Monica focuses on her career. He believes that Chandler would still use his humor to diffuse any tense situations that arise in their household.
Overall, the cast's visions for their characters' futures show that their love for the show and their characters still remains strong. Despite the series ending over 15 years ago, the bonds that were formed during the decade-long run of "Friends" will always endure.
