Friends is one of the most iconic sitcoms of all time, thanks in large part to the great chemistry between its six core stars — Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer. But in addition to its highly paid ensemble cast, the NBC show also broadened its appeal by featuring dozens of celebrity guest stars during its time on air.
