25 years after it first aired, Friends continues to be one of the most-watched shows on television, whether it's constant re-runs on television or 24-hour-a-day, 365 days a year viewing on Netflix.  

In fact, there was an outcry earlier last year when the streaming service announced that it would no longer be showing the sitcom after they lost it to a rival on-demand company. 

15 years after Friends came to an end, the six main stars still earn $16 million a year from reruns alone. But where are the actors now? 

Jennifer Aniston

Since Friends, Aniston has starred in comedies and romantic movies such as The Break Up, The Switch, Marley & Me and Horrible Bosses 1 and 2.

Most recently she starred in Murder Mystery, a Netflix-produced movie co-starring Adam Sandler, which the normally secretive Netflix claimed was viewed on 31 million accounts within three days of launching in June. 

Her next big venture will be sitcom The Morning Show on Apple's new streaming channel Apple TV+, which is expected to stream from November 1.

Last year, the actress revealed that she nearly left Friends but her co-star Matt Le Blanc convinced her to stay.
