Friends... where are they now?

Yesterday I watched the clip of Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow have a curse off on Jimmy Fallon

And it got me thinking of the successes (is that even a word?) of all the Friends main characters. And who made it past their Friends persona. Although if we are going to be honest, they will always be Ross, Rachel, Joey, Chandler, Monica and Phoebe to me.

So... without further ado, in order of most to least successful...

Jennifer Aniston. Obviously she is the most well known of the 6. She married Brad Pitt. Stars in a whole crap load of movies. Some of them horrible, but some of them not. I have to say that I love her newer movies where she is getting out of the traditional stereotypical Jennifer Aniston. Such as, Horrible Bosses 1&2).  and We Are The Millers.

Courtney Cox.  OR Gale Weathers for those Scream fans. I think the Scream movies are her only really big box office hits.  But she did find fame in Cougar Town.

Lisa Kudrow Honestly, I can't think of any real big movies or TV shows that she has been in. But, I know I see her in a lot of guest appearances and side characters in movies. I guess she did star in Romy and Michelle's High School reunion. And well that movie is pretty fantastic.

Now comes the hard part. Deciding which guy is better.   It seems like they were all happy with their million dollar per episode paycheque that once Friends ended they decided that they didn't really have to work. Which is fair.

Matthew Perry gets 4th spot. Only because I can actually think of a movie off the top of my head. The Whole 9 Yards. Oh an d 17 Again. So he did have some hits.

 Matt LeBlanc:The spinoff Joey. Oh.. he tried. He really did.

David Schwimmer:  The bottom of the list. I guess once your Ross you can't really be anyone else.
