Friends certainly needs no introduction. First aired in 1994this sitcom centered on the story of a group of friends in their twenties grappling with their daily problems has forever revolutionized the history of its genre and beyond, achieving sensational success and popularity. Even today, the series is considered the sitcom par excellence and, despite having passed almost twenty years since the last episodein the last few years his fortune has only increased thanks to the streaming on Netflix and other platforms.
Part of the credit for the success of Friends must undoubtedly be attributed to his amazing cast, composed of Jennifer Aniston in the role of the spoiled Rachel Green, Courteney Cox in that of the apprehensive and maternal Monica Geller, Lisa Kudrow in that of the bizarre Phoebe Buffay, Matt LeBlanc in that of the playboy with a heart of gold Joey Tribbiani, Matthew Perry in that of the sarcastic Chandler Bing e David Schwimmer in the role of the unfortunate Ross Geller. The series has contributed significantly to launch the careers of its six lead actors which, from one day to the next, they saw radically change their lives, also from an economic point of view. And if for someone like Matt LeBlanc the money earned thanks to sitcom they were really necessary to survive, some are not missing thoughtless purchase.
In a recent interview with PopSugar to promote Murder Mistery 2il sequel of the Netflix film in which the actress stars together with Adam SandlerJennifer Aniston has revealed what was hisfirst big shopping spree”.
In particular, the actress said she spent part of the first check earned on the set of Friends to buy a $13,000 Mercedes convertible, but that wasn’t a great idea
“There was a small white Mercedes 280 SL and it had been there a long time”, said the actress about the car, which was parked along Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. “I mean, it could have been more than two years. And I was always like, ‘I can’t wait, one day, one day, (I’ll buy it)’. And one day I bought itand then I drove it, and then I drove it again, and then it didn’t work anymore”.
Jennifer Aniston has therefore explained to an incredulous Adam Sandler that the machine is actually had manufacturing defectsand for this reason no one had bought it before.”It was a wreck, and that’s why it had been parked there. I didn’t have enough experience to think about getting it checked out, so It was just a big 25-year-old mistake”.
In short, it can happen to everyone to be cheated in their youth, but probably Jennifer Aniston must not have suffered much from this expense. If during the first season of Friends the pay of the six leading actors amounted to $22,500 an episodein fact towards the end of the tenth and final season of the comedy la Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc e David Schwimmer they were making $1 million an episode each!
