What Happend To The Kids Stars Once From 'Friends'? Especially Cole Sprouse! You Can't Imagine!

Over two decades on from its first episode, hit TV show  still continues to amass a cult following. And it’s not hard to see why.

The sitcom followed the hilarious adventure of six friends as they navigated the troubles of adulthood, working life, and (on-again and off-again) relationships.

But after watching the show for the 987th time, there’s something we’ve come to realise: the kids on the show are no longer... kids.

Yep, Ben Geller and Phoebe’s triplets are all fully fledged adults. And it’s terrifying.

In fact, a few of them have gone on to pursue acting careers.

So prepare to feel extremely old because here’s what the kids from  look like now.

Ben Geller, who was the son of Ross Geller and his ex-wife Carol Willick, appeared in 16 episodes of .

Today, the mischievous prankster is 30 years old. Yes, really.

Over the show's 10 seasons, four actors have been credited as playing Ben. First, it was Michael Gunderson, who played Ben in season two as a baby. He was then replaced for seasons three to five by twin toddlers Charles Thomas Allen and John Christopher Allen, who both chose not to pursue an acting career after 

And the fourth Ben we all know and love was played by the one and only Cole Sprouse.

After , Cole went on to star in Disney Channel's  and  alongside his twin brother Dylan. It was one of the most popular teen sitcoms in Disney history and while Cole doesn't like to watch the show anymore; he admitted to still being fond of the memories. 

"I know it sounds cheesy [but] I still have a really deep fondness for " he told in 2021 "When I graduated middle school, the crew threw a big graduation. I cried on screen.


In 2017, Cole admitted he had a crush on his  co-star Jennifer Aniston.

"I had a really, really hard time working with Aniston because I was so in love with her. I was infatuated. I was speechless - I’d get all bubbly and forget my lines and completely blank. It was so difficult," he told 

More recently, Cole is known for his role in the hit drama series  He famously dated his costar Lili Reinhart on and off from 2017 to 2020. 

Emma Geller Green (Cali and Noelle Sheldon)

Believe it or not, Ross and Rachel's daughter Emma is 20 years old.

Throughout season nine, Emma was played by two different sets of twins, Elizabeth and Genevieve Davidson, and Alexandra and Athina Conley.

But in 2004, a different pair of twins, Cali and Noelle Sheldon, took up the role.

Jack and Erica Bing


Unfortunately, not much is known about the actors who played Monica and Chandler's twins, Jack and Erica, as the infants were never credited on screen.

But we do know that they would be roughly 18 years old this year and probably all living happily in their home in Westchester.

Phoebe's triplets (Alexis, Cole, Justin and Paul Cimoch)

Frank and Alice's (and Phoebe's) triplets would now all be turning 24 years old.

Just like Monica and Chandler's kids, the actors playing Leslie, Chandler and Frank Jr Jr were all uncredited for their first appearances in the show's fifth season.

But when we see them in 'The One With Joey's Porsche', the triplets are actually played by real-life quadruplets: Alexis, Cole, Justin and Paul Cimoch.
