Who doesn鈥檛 love Friends? From the theme song to the Brad Pitt episode, everything about the late-鈥90s sitcom is memorable. When Netflix first announced the show would be coming to the streaming service, we were collectively thrilled. Rewatching the entire series reminded us how perfect each and every character was on the show, and it鈥檚 hard to imagine anyone else taking part in the antics of Rachel, Joey, Chandler, Monica, Pheobe, and Ross. But the word is out that star Courtney Cox 鈥 who, as you鈥檒l recall, played Monica Gellar 鈥 originally was supposed to play Rachel Green鈥 and her reason for turning down the role isn鈥檛 really that surprising.

In an interview with Sam Jones on his show, Off Camera With Sam Jones, the actress admits that while she was initially offered the role of Rachel Green, she felt a deeper connection to Monica Geller and asked for that role instead. 鈥淚鈥檓 very similar to her. I鈥檓 not as clean as Monica, but I am neat. And I鈥檓 not as competitive, even though some people, my partner Johnny McDaid, would say I am.鈥

Mind = blown!

While there have been rumors that the Friends cast might reunite for a show, that doesn鈥檛 actually look like it will happen anytime soon, which really isn鈥檛 all that bad considering we鈥檝e got 10 entire seasons of the show to watch again and again鈥 and again.
