7 Iconic Guest Appearances On FRIENDS That You Totally Forgot About

Find us a more star-studded show, we’ll wait

Regardless of whether you’ve chanced upon watching a single episode of FRIENDS or are a complete obsessive freak, the fact remains that the show is the bedrock of ‘90s and early ‘00s pop culture. And while you have a variety of shows to watch, we know you always turn to FRIENDS (without any guilt for the 10th re-watch).

And’s what not to love about it?! It made you laugh, it made you cry and threw facts right at your face—your job’s a joke, you’re broke, your love life’s D.O.A (Death On Arrival). With a cast that includes icons like Jennifer Aniston and younger versions of Hollywood’s major players like Cole Sprouse, the show is anything but dull.

While the cast was iconic there were also some notable celebrity appearances through the years. We’ve rounded up seven actors who made a brief cameo on FRIENDS – we bet you forgot about them. Swipe through to refresh your memory:


Reese Witherspoon

Starring as Rachel Green’s spoiled younger sister, Reese made an appearance in season six. Just like most of us, the sisters argued over dating Ross.


Julia Roberts

The iconic actor made a cameo on season two and played the role of Chandler’s childhood friend. Roberts dated and pranked Chandler for one episode.


Ellen Pompeo

If you love Greys Anatomy then this part would’ve come as a surprise to you when you realised that Dr Grey made a cameo in the show.


Cole Sprouse

Future Suite Life of Zack and Cody and Riverdale star, Cole Sprouse played an important role in the show as Ben—Ross’ son.

Brad Pitt

The Hollywood heartthrob made an appearance in season eight and played the role of an old friend called Will Colbert. Side note: Brad was married to Jennifer when he appeared on the show and his on-screen character hated Rachel! 

George Clooney

We’re just going to leave it here—silver fox George Clooney starred as an emergency room doctor in FRIENDS. Yes, it's time to digest the fact all over again. 

Dakota Fanning

Fanning played the part of Mackenzie, a nine-year-old girl who lived in the house that Monica and Chandler were looking at.
