Fun Fact about ‘Friends’ that every Fanatic (like me :P) should know:
1.According to the producers interview with NBC News, Rachel and Ross weren’t supposed to be the endgame love interests — it was originally Monica and Joey!
2.The main cast started out making $22,000 an episode. In 1997, they renegotiated for $100,000 per episode, and, in the 10th and final season,made a whopping $1 million per episode!
3.According to Uproxx, while most seasons of Friends are approximately 24 episodes, the last season was truncated to just 18 due to Aniston’s film schedule. 😦
