The Best ‘Friends’ Celebrity Cameos We All Love & The Ones You Probably Forgot!

We’ll start by stating the obvious: Friends is one of the most iconic sitcoms of all time!

Along with jump-starting the careers of its unforgettable cast including Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, and Matthew Perry — the show boasts an impressive number of celebrity cameos since it first premiered 25 years ago.

A few big names made appearances just as they were coming out of a breakout role — like Reese Witherspoon did following the 1999 hit, Cruel Intentions. Others like a young Dakota Fanning enjoyed smaller, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it part before later growing into the spotlight.

There are PLENTY of recognizable stars who spent some time down at Central Perk, but we’re almost certain you won’t remember a few names on our list!

And FUN FACT: today Jennifer, Reese, and the third Green sister, Christina Applegate, were all nominated for Golden Globes! So awesome!

Ch-ch-check out some of our all-time favorite celeb cameos on Friends (below):

The One With Brad Pitt

In an especially memorable Thanksgiving episode — which aired in season eight — Brad Pitt guest stars as Will Colbert, an old pal who went to high school with Ross, Monica, and Rachel. Monica invites Will to spend the holiday with the gang, but their little reunion doesn’t go as planned after he reveals he was co-founder of the “I Hate Rachel Green Club” back in the day, along with Ross! Over dinner, Rachel discovers they spread a vicious rumor — and it’s comedy gold!

The One With Danny DeVito

Danny Devito makes a wildly entertaining cameo in season ten as Officer Goodbody, the stripper Rachel and Monica hired last minute for Phoebe’s bachelorette party. The ladies were probably hoping for a tall, handsome man with washboard abs and a sexy dance number prepared. But instead, a middle-aged short and stocky Devito shows up in a cheap costume and delivers a subpar performance than ends with him in tears!

The One With Selma Blair

Selma Blair made her brief cameo alongside Chandler Bing in the season nine episode, The One with Christmas in Tulsa. Chandler sends everyone else home to be with their families while he and a coworker named Wendy are forced to work late at the office during the holiday. However, the flirty, sexy, and second in command played by Blair is more than happy to flirt while Monica isn’t around!

The One With Winona Ryder

Two women sharing a kiss on national TV?! We guess Stranger Things have happened before! But it was certainly a memorable moment when Winona Ryder guest starred and locked lips with Rachel Green during an episode in season seven. The whole thing went down after Rachel bumped into Ryder’s character, Melissa Warburton — a friend from college who she smooched after drinking too much one night. Melissa insists she doesn’t recall their previous encounter, but a steamy peck from Rachel quickly jogs her memory! Melissa then confesses she remembers everything and was actually in love with her!

The One With Christina Applegate

Christina Applegate‘s two stints on the series would go on to earn her an Emmy award for Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy. The Netflix star played Rachel Green’s older sister named Amy Green in two episodes on seasons nine and ten. In the clip (below), the pair’s lifelong tension reaches a breaking point after Amy crashes the gang’s Thanksgiving dinner and insists she’d make a better parent to Rachel’s daughter, Emily.

The One With George Clooney & Noah Wyle

When E.R. meets comedy! As the episode title, The One With Two Parts suggests, George Clooney and Noah Wyle made their debuts on the popular sitcom in a two-part episode in season one where Rachel talks Monica into switch identities at a hospital so she can use Monica’s insurance and get treatment for an ankle injury. It’s there they meet the doctors and then attempt to keep the identity swap by going on a double date!

 

The One With Reese Witherspoon

Long before her days of running Monterey on HBO‘s Big Little Lies, Reese Witherspoon made two consecutive appearances in season six as Rachel’s pretty but privileged younger sister, Jill Green. Jill shows up on her big sissy’s doorstep looking for help after getting the financial axe from their father. But her character’s time on the show was cut short after she broke girl code and tried to pursue Rachel’s eventual soulmate, Ross!

The One With Gabrielle Union

On an episode in season seven, Ross and Joey competed for the affection of their new neighbor and mutual love interest Kirsten Leigh, played by Gabrielle Union. Both men took extraordinary measures — including hilariously airing each other’s dirty laundry — in hopes of winning Kirsten’s heart. But it wasn’t long before things got of hand and Union’s character ditched the pair of bros for good!

The One With Dakota Fanning

Dakota Fanning played a girl named Mackenzie in the Friends episode, The One With Princess Consuela, when she was only 10 years old! Joey tries to solicit her help to craft a plan to find something wrong with the house Monica and Chandler bought in hopes it will make them stay in the city. Instead, she delivers advice and a performance well beyond her years in the clip (below):

The One With Ben Stiller

Ben Stiller guest stars in season three as Rachel’s boyfriend Tommy who irrationally screams at anyone (including Ross!) bothering him. The hilarious performance truly speaks, we mean screams for itself!

The One With Ellen Pompeo

We bet you forgot Dr. Meredith Grey, ehem, Ellen Pompeo once portrayed a Friends character named Missy Goldberg, a former college classmate who Ross and Chandler both had a crush on! Watch her break the news to Ross that she and Mr. Bing enjoyed quite the fling before he ever knew about it in the throwback video (below):

The One With Kristin Davis

On an episode in season 13, Rachel and Phoebe do everything in their power to convince Joey to seriously pursue a woman he casually hooked up with named Erin, played by Sex And The City star Kristin Davis. Their plan is completely self-serving, though, as the ladies took a liking to Davis’ character and cared more about befriending her than the short-lived flame with Joey!

The One With Bruce Willis

In a guest-starring role that would go on to earn him an Emmy, Bruce Willis played Paul Stevens in three season six episodes. As the father to Ross’s young girlfriend Emily, Paul is super skeptical about his daughter dating an aging paleontologist — but things become even more awkward after he later starts dating Rachel!

 

The One With Julia Roberts

In her epic cameo in season two, Julia Roberts stars as Susie Moss AKA “Susie Underpants” who gets her sweet revenge on Chandler for lifting up her skirt in front of everyone in the fourth grade by leaving him without his pants after a steamy make-out session in a men’s bathroom!

The One With Freddy Prinze Jr.

When Rachel and Ross are in search of a babysitter for their daughter Emma, they’re pleasantly surprised and confused when they come across Sandy — a hypersensitive, male nanny played by Freddie Prinze Jr.! This happens to be one of those Friends clips that didn’t age so gracefully as Ross’ homophobic assertion that Sandy must be gay to perform a job like this certainly wouldn’t fly today. But what this scene lacks in tastefulness it makes up with a heaping dose of humor as FPJ proves his worth as a caretaker.

Demian Bichir to Join George Clooney in ‘Good Morning, Midnight’ Adaptation (EXCLUSIVE)

Demian Bichir is set to join George Clooney in Netflix’s adaptation of Lily Brooks-Dalton’s novel “Good Morning, Midnight.” Felicity Jones, David Oyelowo and Kyle Chandler are also on board, with Clooney set to helm the pic — his first feature film directing gig since 2017’s “Suburbicon.” “The Revenant” screenwriter Mark L. Smith penned the script. […]

Celebs We Want To See On ‘Shark Tank’

Mark CubanLori GreinerDaymond John, and the rest of the rotating Shark Tank stars have been killing it on TV for what feels like forever!

We love ’em all — and yes, as much as we hate to admit it, even Mr. Wonderful occupies a soft spot in our hearts — but what if we found some new blood who could join the tank on occasion, too?!

Related: So Many Stars Have Launched Successful Alcohol Brands!

It’s no secret there are plenty of extremely business-savvy celebs excelling in various industries around the entertainment world. Maybe ABC can use some of these names as suggestions going forward!

We have a feeling the stars listed here (below) would be really good for the show’s format… Ch-ch-check ’em out!!!

Kylie Jenner

Instagram
Bow down to your new business overlord, Miz Kylie Jenner! LOLz! / (c) Instagram/Kylie Jenner

Come on y’all, isn’t this the most obvious name on the list? She’s not self-made, but she is a billionaire already and she’s barely 21 years old! Kylie Jenner has a remarkably good feel for what young women want in beauty products, surpassing even older sister Kim Kardashian West in this realm by now! (BTW, she ain’t on this list, but Kim would also be a GREAT Shark Tank investor!)

The youngest KarJenner’s low-key business savvy, combined with her impressive social media skill set and ability to get in touch with the highly-coveted teen/low 20s demographic, ought to make her a natural fit for the business reality show. Plus, her money is long… while some stars on this list may not have as much dough as you think with which to invest, Kylie can toss cash around like it ain’t a big deal! Move over, Mark Cuban… this is what a business mogul really looks like in 2019!!! LOL!

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey
The mogul of all moguls! Bow down to the business queen… for we are not worthy! / (c) WENN

The one, the only, the classic, and still the best… Oprah Winfrey!

The legend has been doing it since before young ones like Kylie were even born, and the longtime TV host has the resumé — and bank accounts — to prove it. For years on her popular daytime talk show, everything Oprah touched turned to gold; products flew off the shelves, books became immediate best sellers, and yes, she even did that infamous car giveaway which still gets meme’d to death these days.

The Mississippi-born Hollywood icon has backed off a little bit of late, but with age, so too comes wisdom, and she continues making shrewd business decisions on a smaller scale with things like the Oprah Winfrey Network, and O, the Oprah Magazine. Plus, the African-American icon not only had a hand in the promotion and eventual election of America’s first black President, she’s such a big deal nowadays people are constantly asking whether she’s going to run for President, herself!

Run for President, or become an investor on Shark Tank…? Hmm… the choice seems pretty simple to us! Ha!

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba red carpet

Extremely successful celebs throw a LOT of money away on bad ventures and risky investments from time to time, but Jessica Alba seems to have a particularly magic touch for figuring out what works, at least as far as consumer goods are concerned! The gorgeous actress and then-young mom launched The Honest Company with a whopping 17 (!) flagship products way back in 2012 as a way to provide other mothers with safe, usable, non-toxic household cleaning supplies and other goods.

Fast forward a few years and it’s all blowing up; Alba’s company, now headquartered in the Playa Vista area of El Lay, has gone through multiple rounds of venture capital funding and come away with a valuation hovering around $1 billion. The biz had a hand in pioneering digital media marketing too, as well as the use of subscription services as a way to reach consumers and customers, leading the way in their category.

Now, to be fair, The Honest Company has seen some pretty notable missteps in its recent past, including several high-profile lawsuits and a self-issued safety recall over certain products. But it’s all part of the vast wealth of experience Alba has accumulated along the way, and we think it’d make her a shrewd, savvy investor on the NBC reality TV show!!!

Selena Gomez

It’s one thing to have all these super-rich celebs poised to take a seat on Shark Tank, but what about a true super fan of the show?! You know… somebody who would approach the entire event like we would?! Enter: Selena GomezShark Tank fan extraordinaire, who we believe would be one incredible addition to the reality TV hit!

Selena is a HUGE fan of the show, and has been for a while! In 2019, two of her best friends actually gifted her a trip to the set, so she could go backstage and see how the show gets made! What an incredible birthday gift! Clearly we think Selena would be a wonderful addition to the tank sometime… producers, get on that!

Magic Johnson

Magic Johnson
Magic Johnson has a lot of business ventures in multiple industries! / (c) WENN

Talk about loaded up with cash… former NBA star Magic Johnson has done extremely well for himself since his playing days ended. So well, in fact, that he partially owns MLB club Los Angeles Dodgers (no small feat!) as well as a host of restaurants and fast food chains around the country. In sum, his company Magic Johnson Enterprises owns hundreds of restaurants, dozens of real estate developments, and more — and he even owned part of his former team, the Los Angeles Lakers, before selling it back to the majority ownership group for nearly ten figures.

All in all, not bad for a post playing-career resumé… and definitely enough here to make him a good business investor for the reality TV show, right?! Yeah, we’d say so!

George Clooney

George Clooney Shark Tank
Who wouldn’t want this hunk on ‘Shark Tank’?? / (c) Mega/WENN

Not only has George Clooney made an unbelievable amount of money during his acting career, we can’t forget he’s one of the brains behind the successful tequila brand, Casamigos! The company grew so quickly upon founding that, in 2017, Clooney and his partners sold it to beverage giant Diageo for one billion dollars. Yes, with a ‘B.’ Now that’s swimming in cash!

But seriously, Clooney’s A-list persona, incredible good looks, and business savvy in taking a product to market and hitting it big would make him a very good and credible Shark Tank investor. We wouldn’t be mad if he showed up on our TV screens at some point, either. Once a hunk, always a hunk!

Danny Trejo

Danny Trejo
Danny Trejo has led quite the life — and he’s the head honcho for several successful food biz ventures! / (c) WENN

Danny Trejo has lived quite a full life in his many years, most notably a stint in prison and several odd jobs that included working behind-the-scenes on film sets before he was discovered one day. The Machete actor has made the most of his incredible gifts and good fortune though, as he’s a well-known investor in several local eateries in the El Lay area, including Trejo’s Tacos — and Trejo’s Coffee & Donuts on the corner of Santa Monica Ave. and Highland Ave. right in the center of the bustling city!

Though he may not have as much corporate experience as some of the options here, Trejo knows what it takes to get something sold face to face, on the street, and among real people. An asset like that with unique knowledge and such a unique background could really help the show branch out to more diverse entrepreneurial clientele.

Kanye West

Kanye West's Coachella Sunday Service
This guy would bring the goods every week on ‘Shark Tank’! Talk about an outside-the-box thinker… / (c) WENN

Uhhhh, come on. Who’s going to have better ideas for products and a stronger desire to platform with crazy, off-the-wall companies like Kanye West?? The rapper is also a visionary fashion designer in his own right, and he’s had his hands in all kinds of major projects throughout his life already, including high fashion, high-end home design, architecture, major set design inspirations, and more.

Yeezy thinks bigger than pretty much anybody on this list, and even though he’s had a handful of controversial times in his life — to say the least — he’s exactly the kind of big picture, inspirational thinker that a show like Shark Tank would LOVE to have join the investor side of things, wouldn’t you think?!

Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow pretentious
Say what you will about Goop, Gwyneth has done the damn thing! / (c) Apega/WENN

Gwyneth Paltrow certainly has had an interesting life away from her entertainment career, with a unique family by her side and some strange things in her pastGoop is a powerhouse, even if she can occasionally use it to recommend some weird products at times. So occasional bizarre press aside, the actress seriously knows how to reach out to women with products they went and are willing to buy again, and again, and again. Even Martha Stewart seemed so threatened by Gwyneth’s impressive business empire that she decided to shade the bubbly blond star publicly to get through it. Sorry, Martha!

There you have it, Perezcious readers! Twelve legit celebrity businesspeople who would KILL IT on Shark Tank!

Do you agree?? Can you think of more celebs who might be good on the show?! Sound OFF about all of this in the comments (below)!!!

Eva Longoria Reveals Which Stars Got The Drunkest At Her Wedding & Answers SHADY Questions On ‘WWHL’!

Eva Longoria’s wedding guests partied like it was 1999!

The actress and producer stopped by Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Thursday when she was asked which one of her famous friends got the drunkest at her wedding to Jose Anonio Baston.

There were quite a few famous faces at the 2016 celebration, but two tipsy guests stuck out to Eva in particular.

She revealed: 

“It was a toss between Ricky Martin and Victoria [Beckham]!”

Ha! Those ‘90s pop stars love an open bar, apparently!

It’s not too surprising Posh was in the mood to party, as she was involved in Longoria’s wedding from start to finish. Not only did she serve as an official witness over the couple’s nuptials, she designed the bride’s wedding dress herself!

The Desperate Housewives alum told Hello! Magazine at the time:

“I asked Victoria to do my dress because I wanted it to be special and made with love, and I knew that Victoria would make it with love. Victoria was one of my witnesses too — she signed the paper that says I was here — so it was a Victoria Beckham weekend! She was the best, sweetest person to have there on this day. She’s one of my best friends so for her to be there was so special.” 

The former Spice Girl was honored to have such an important role in her bestie’s ceremony. At the time, she shared a pic of the “beautiful bride” in her custom gown on Instagram, writing in the caption: 

“@evalongoria the most beautiful bride. I am honored to have created your wedding dress X Thank you for asking me!!! X We love u! X #friends”

#Friends, indeed. Relive the stunning moment (below):

No wonder Beckham was ready to toss back a few drinks. Gurl earned it!

Eva’s revelation came during a juicy segment on WWHL where she was asked shady questions by Shady Boots — an animated monkey related to the star’s apparent nemesis, Boots from the upcoming live action Dora the Explorer movie (obviously).

Shady Boots wasted no time getting the real dirt. In addition to the wedding question, he asked Eva if she’s ever seen Teri Hatcher‘s YouTube series (!?) and whether or not she was ever romantically pursued by George Clooney.

Ch-ch-check out the clip (below) to find out her answers!

Amal Clooney: Trump ‘Vilifies the Media’ and Makes Journalists ‘Vulnerable to Abuse’

Amal Clooney, the British-Lebanese human rights attorney married to Hollywood star George Clooney, issued veiled criticism of President Donald Trump on Wednesday, claiming his frequent self-defense against partisan media attacks leaves reporters open to “abuse” worldwide.

Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Plan ‘Intimate’ Christening — But WHO Will Be Archie’s Godparents??

Baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor is getting christened this week!

On July 6, the newest addition to the royal family will be christened at the age of two months with his family in attendance in Queen Elizabeth‘s private chapel at Windsor Castle.

Related: Meghan & Kate Issues Are Reportedly The Reason For Royal Charity Split!

A royal inside source shared with People that proud parents Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are preparing for the occasion this week, and “wanted an intimate, peaceful setting in a place with such a special connection to Her Majesty.”

The private chapel holds a lot of meaning for the couple, so we can understand why they chose it!

The room was originally created between 1840 and 1847 for Queen Victoria, and was later destroyed by a fire in 1992 before being rebuilt in 1994. St. George’s Chapel, also on Windsor Castle grounds, is where Harry was christened in 1984 — and where the happy duo said ‘I do’ in May 2018!

The insider continued:

“This is a beautiful milestone and they are excited to share it as a family first and then with the world.”

Typically, royal christenings are private with only close family, friends and godparents in attendance, with photos released to the public the day after. We can’t wait to see pix of the whole family!

Currently, it’s unclear who the lucky godparents will be, but we have a few ideas! Likely high in the running are George and Amal Clooney, who are both close friends with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

George Clooney Golden Globes 2015 GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

While the former Suits star was still pregnant, Amal was one of Miz Markle’s friends who threw her a luxe baby shower in NYC, and even gave her a lift back to London on a private flight following the festivities. As for the Ocean’s Twelve actor, he’s been outspoken about how his friend has been treated by the press, even comparing her treatment to that of Princess Diana, who was killed after a paparazzi chase in Paris in 1997.

Another front-runner could be Oprah Winfrey! The longtime daytime TV host is a close friend of the couple, and — like George — has also denounced the media’s coverage of the new momma. The couple is currently in collaboration with the 65-year-old mogul on a new documentary series focused on mental health, set to launch in 2020, so they’ll be close for the next few months anyway.

Could you even imagine Oprah being your godmother?! You’d probably only be disappointed if you found out it could have been Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas! LOLz!

Excuse Me What GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

Of course, bestiez Jessica Mulroney and Serena Williams are also likely in the running for the coveted godmother title.

Who do U think will be crowned godmother and godfather, Perezcious readers? Sound off with your guesses in the comments (below)!!

Michael Sheen, George Clooney, Michael K. Williams on Supporting Roles Offering New Emotional Challenges

There comes a point in an actor’s career where sometimes it’s worth taking a detour down a slightly different road.

George Clooney Confident Donald Trump Can Be Defeated in 2020

George Clooney isn’t ready to endorse any of the democratic candidates for president just yet. “I’m going to stay out of the primaries, [but] I’ll fundraise for anybody that is out there that’s interested in trying to make this president a one-term president.” Clooney told Variety on Tuesday night at the Los Angeles premiere of […]

TV Review: George Clooney’s ‘Catch-22’

Only television could contain “Catch-22.” Joseph Heller’s capacious World War II novel, stuffed with philosophical monologues, paradoxes, and a wide-ranging cast of expendable flyboys centered on the inertly gloomy Yossarian, provides little foothold for any potential reworking.

George Clooney Parody PSA Rips Trump and ‘Dumb F*cking Idiots’ for ‘Saying Dumb Sh*t’ About Climate Change
