It’s fair to say that 25 years after Friends first hit television screens, the show’s cast members still look incredible.

They’ve all aged well, but it seems there are some people out there who didn’t think they would.

A magazine article from 2004 predicting what Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry would look like in 20 years has recently resurfaced.

And it’s fair to say, the predictions weren’t exactly very kind to the stars.

A photo of the article, which appeared in Star, was shared on Reddit earlier this week by a fan of the show.

The magazine said they used “computer magic” to generate images showing what the actors might look like in 2024.

Friends fans who spotted the Reddit post couldn’t get over how different the predictions were from reality.

One person joked: “Could they BE any more wrong?”

Another commented: “WTF. Don’t do Courteney Cox like that.”

Someone else said: “This is horrifying. WTF. Whoever made this did the Friends dirty!”

A puzzled fan asked: “Just…how?”

“Welcome to the world of technology in 2004. Since then graphics and software have greatly increased,” wrote a different user.

Others pointed out that there was still a while to go, as the predictions were for 2024, saying: “To all the people talking about how off this is: there is still 4 more years.”

Friends fans are also currently eagerly awaiting the cast’s upcoming reunion.

The special episode is set to be a mix of interviews and sketches and according to The Sun it could make an eye-watering £350 million.

This would make Friends ‘The One Where They Got Back Together’ the most lucrative one-off in television history.

Speaking with actor Kevin Nealon on an episode of his YouTube series, Hiking with Kevin, Courteney Cox shared her excitement over the project.

She said: “So the exciting thing is that we’re all going to get together for the first time, in a room, and actually talk about the show, and it’s going to be on HBO Max, and I’m so excited.

“We’re going to have the best time. It’s going to be great.

“We really haven’t all done that and actually sat there and talked about and reminisced about this incredible experience that we had. It’s gonna be fantastic.”
