Secrets from the finale of friends DISCOVERED – 15 years from the moment of issue

Friends were one of the greatest television programs of their time, and even today, about 15 years after the end, he is still worshiped by many.

The performance was run for 10 years at NBC and became a world star Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc.

To celebrate the show, which has become an icon of pop culture, here are some secrets from the last episode that was aired in 2004.

Cool mill

When six relatively unknown actors for Friends were cast in 2004, they received approximately USD 20,000 per episode (equivalent to GBP 26 645 in today's money).

Before the last episode came, they were all superstars and they needed a cool $ 1 million for the episode.

I will be there for you

It was remarkable that the cast was negotiating together to ensure that everyone received the same amount.

It was a tactic that was later taken up by the cast of Modern Family and The Big Bang Theory, and when both sexes were paid the same, it was extremely rare in Hollywood.

The shortest run of the party

With the increase in remuneration for the episode, the number of episodes starting to fall.

They started from 24 episodes when they first aired, but in the last season Friends fell to 18 on the run.

In 2003, it was reported that Brad Pitt could have something to say in this matter because he wanted to start a family with his then-wife, Jennifer Aniston, and he was reportedly "very angry" when she signed up for another year, although Aniston's representative at that time he denied it, it was, claiming it was the best time for everyone to play together.

Friends forever

It will always be Ross and Rachel forever

If nothing happened in the last episode, producers Crane and Kauffman insisted that Ross and Rachel finish together.

Speaking to EW, Crane said: "The only thing we knew absolutely from the very beginning was that we had to take Ross and Rachel together.

"For 10 years we've been filming the audience with their" whether or not they "and we have not seen any advantage in frustrating them."

But they tried to put the stinger in the tail, showing that Rachel was getting off the plane, leaving the viewers thinking that she could choose Paris over Rossie, until the great disclosure.

The cast earned $ 1 million for the episode of the last series

An emotional farewell

After 10 years and at the height of fame, it will always be an emotional ending, but tears have almost stopped filming.

Before the cameras started, the cast needed to do makeup because the emotions were so high.

Aniston said in an interview for Oprah Winfrey: "I do not think we would ever spend more time on hair and make-up between scenes.

"Also the fact that we were crying all our make-up all the time."

Schwimmer said he was fine until they organized the ritual. He said: "I started losing him. This was the moment when I was scared. "

Aniston said everyone was in "hysteria" at the time when makeup was needed, although it may be different to the artists themselves.

Friends together in 1998

One "friend" almost never came back

Aniston was convinced that he should make another series, even if he made them the highest paying stars in history.

After receiving Emma and the Golden Globe for her role in Friends, Aniston had reservations about doing it all again.

She said: "I had several problems that I had to deal with. I wanted it to end when people would still love us and we were at a high level. And then I also felt like: "How much more do I have Rachel?" & # 39; "

Of course, at that time her relationship with Brad Pitt began to unravel and was it difficult to make the next series with this in private life.

As she struggled with the ending of the Friends, Aniston said she had not received any support from Brad, saying, "He just was not there."

Friends cast

Gifts around the clock

The cast and crew had "yearbooks" that celebrated their time on the show and were signed between shots.

The cast also bought Cartier watches for producers and diamond earrings.

Well, you have to spend this million on episode for something!

Together forever or at least ten series

The one that they all hated

The moment Joey and Rachel join together still divides fans of the show to this day.

They are not alone, however, because the cast hated the idea and threw themselves at the writers who did it.

Matt LeBlanc was "very much the opposite, saying that he is Ross's friend and that the type of friend that Joey is will never go and will not take someone else's girlfriend."

Aniston also raised a controversial connection in an Elle interview in 2017.

She said, "I think there was a moment when Joey and Rachel came together, maybe it could have happened, but it was not. It was Ross and Rachel.

"I just do not think Joey and Rachel can do it. I think he was more physical than emotional with them. They were friends with benefits and left it. "
