I'm very enthusiastic about movies, I love making short films and I hope one day I can make a theatrical release!

Friends was a widely popular show in the 90's and early 2000's. Friends ran for 10 years, 1994-2004, and was the highest rated shows of the decade, starring Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer. Since its been 10 years, why don't we see what each of them is up to nowadays.

Courteney Cox/Monica

How many cameras were on her? A few since Friends ended in 2004: The actress behind Monica Geller stars on TBS' Cougar Town and, before that, was the lead in the FX comedy Dirt, where Jennifer Aniston guest starred. Plus the actress has starred in all four of the Scream movies, playing trusty reporter Gale Weathers. Monica would be proud.

Jennifer Aniston/Rachel

Since Rachel and Ross got back together for good, Aniston has focused on film, with starring roles in Along Came Polly, Friends With Money, The Break-Up, Marley & Me, Horrible Bosses, Wanderlust, We're the Millers and countless others. She also executive produced and directed a segment in Lifetime's short film anthology Five, helping to explore the impact of breast cancer on people's lives.

Lisa Kudrow/Phoebe

Since the whimsical Phoebe tied the knot with Paul Rudd's lovable Mike, Kudrow has found her other lobster in producing partner Dan Bucatinsky. Together, their Is or Isn't Entertainment banner is responsible for web-series-turned Showtime comedy Web Therapy, TLC's docuseries Who Do You Think You Are and HBO's The Comeback, which was revived for a six-episode second season nine years after the cult comedy concluded its run. The actress also reunited with Bucatinsky for an on-screen role with a multiple-episode arc on ABC's Scandal. On the feature side, Kudrow's credits include Easy A, Neighbors, Analyze That and many more. As for Regina Falange, we're sure she's off somewhere playing with Monica and Chandler's kids in the country.

Matt LeBlanc/Joey

Since seguing from Friends to spinoff Joey, LeBlanc took time away from the biz to focus on family. He re-emerged in 2011 to reteam with Friends co-creator David Crane and his partner Jeffrey Klarik for Showtime's [Episodes](series:722540), in which he plays a fictionalized version of himself. The role has earned LeBlanc a Golden Globe, with the series already renewed for a fourth season in 2015. Sandwiches for everyone!

Matthew Perry/Chandler

Could he be on any more networks? Since wrapping Friends, Perry has starred on NBC's Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip for NBC, been an arena manager for ABC on Mr. Sunshine, returned to NBC with Friends alum Scott Silveri for Go On and now is at CBS, where he co-wrote The Odd Couple. The pilot, co-starring Thomas Lennon, stands a good chance at landing a series order at CBS, where he has also guest starred on The Good Wife. And let's not forget that Monica and Chandler reunited for episodes of Go On and Courteney Cox's TBS comedy Cougar Town. That's not to mention feature films including The Whole Ten Yards and 17 Again, among others.

David Schwimmer/Ross

Schwimmer is plotting his return to series television with a starring role ABC's remake of Israeli drama Irreversible. In the years since Friends ended its run, he has predominantly focused on features including the Madagascar franchise, theater and directing, including helming episodes of Matt LeBlanc's Friends spinoff Joey. Not to be outdone, he's also guest starred multiple times on Kudrow's Web Therapy. Pivot!
