F.R.I.E.N.D.S. has been the best show in the history of the television. There’s no other show that is as close to the hearts of billions of people as this show. If you are one of the fans, oh you of course are, here are a few fun facts about the show that you must know.
1. Courtney Cox was first approached to play Rachel, but she insisted on playing Monica, as she found the latter to be stronger.
