Friends: Where are they now

Friends: Where are they now

For a decade, they were our best friends on television. It is time to get reacquainted with our pals from Central Perk. Friends left an indelible mark in sitcom history during its 10-year run on the small screen.

Now, nine years after the show ended, we find out what the friends have been up to. It appears that life outside the walls of Central Perk coffeehouse hasn't exactly been rosy for the world's most famous group of friends.

Matthew Perry

Who would have thought that the bubbly man who played the sarcastic and witty Chandler Bing had a dark secret? Earlier this year, Perry opened up to People magazine and revealed that he was abusing alcohol and drugs during Friends' successful run.

Now clean and sober at 43, Perry is still very much active in the acting circle. However, the man's spending most of his time these days advocating drug courts where non-violent drug offenders are given a chance to be rehabilitated through treatment (as opposed to serving jail time).

After Friends ended, Perry went on to star in The Ron Clark Story which garnered him a Golden Globe and an Emmy nomination for his performance. Perry's last big outing on the big screen was with Zac Efron in 2009's 17 Again.

His latest show, Go On, was cancelled after just one season. The series suffered a similar fate to his 2011 series Mr Sunshine, which got axed after nine episodes.
