Jennifer Aniston reveals what happened to Ross and Rachel after Friends ended – The Independent

Jennifer Aniston is clearly enjoying her new Instagram account, and has been answering a number of fan questions about her time on the hit sitcom Friends. 

The actor managed to break the social media platform upon joining, as users rushed to follow her account. 

She has since begun interacting with her fans after posting her first photo, which showed her reunited with former Friends co-stars Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer and Courteney Cox. 

We’ll tell you what’s true. You can form your own view.

One of the earliest and perhaps biggest questions came from one fan, Kaitlyn, who wanted to know what Aniston thought had happened to Ross and Rachel.

1/6 6. Joey Tribbiani

Sure, over the years, Joey provided the show with some of its best-known one-liners (see: “Joey doesn’t share food!” and “How you doin’?”). He was also a recurrent source of situational comedy (see: Joey locking himself into his media unit to prove a point, only for all his and Chandler’s belongings to get robbed). Still, it’s hard to compare his goofiness to Chandler’s dryness or Phoebe’s knack for the absurd.

2/6 5. Ross Geller (tie)

Ross probably thought he was a good guy, but his record shows otherwise. He cheated on Rachel (no, they were not on a break) then tried to get her back; he dated one of his students; he challenged Phoebe’s belief that her mother had been reincarnated in a cat (which, sure, he’s entitled to his doubts, but could he not just drop it?); and he wasn’t the best brother to Monica, nor was he the best father to his son Ben.

3/6 5. Monica Geller (tie)

This might be an unpopular opinion, since Monica is such a beloved character, but: I have never found her laugh-out-loud funny. Sure, her excessive competitiveness and cleanliness were amusing, but it was no match for Phoebe’s otherworldliness or Chandler’s bitterness. Sorry.

4/6 3. Rachel Green

Rachel had her moments – and boy, were they great moments. She sang “Copacabana” in that terrible bridesmaid dress at her ex-fiance’s Barry’s wedding, for one. She fell violently to the ground while trying to escape from Ross and his new girlfriend Julie during an ill-fated attempt to welcome Ross at the airport. She unsuccessfully tried to woo her crush Joshua with a cheerleading routine at a party. Let’s make it official: Rachel was a hoot.

5/6 2. Chandler Bing

Chandler’s friends derided Chandler’s humour pretty much every time as they acknowledged it – undeservedly so. The man was a master at banter! Sure, he used it as a defense mechanism, but who could blame him? Plus, he wasn’t great at the advice, but he could always interest you in a sarcastic comment.

6/6 1. Phoebe Buffay

Phoebe was so wonderfully weird in a way that made her one of the funniest of the bunch. Remember when she sang along to Ross’s terrible attempt at playing the bagpipes? What about when she told Rachel her maternity trousers would be great for shoplifting melons? Good times.

“Well,” Aniston replied. “We’re on a break.”

Her reply referenced the notorious excuse by Schwimmer’s character Ross Geller, who cheated on Rachel only to repeatedly claim “we were on a break!” when he was called out for it. 

Ross and Rachel’s on-off romance became legendary even as the series was still ongoing, with the tenth and final series ending in a reunion between the couple.
