Whether it is Brad Pitt, Maggie Wheeler as Janice, or Cole Sprouse as Ben, the Friends ensemble as a whole holds a particular place in the hearts of its devoted audience. The series’ primary actors included Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox, and Matthew Perry. But do you recall Paul Rudd, often known as Mike, who got along well with Phoebe?
Mike Hannigan, Phoebe Buffay’s boyfriend, appeared intermittently on the programme. By the conclusion of the episode, they wed. However, the actor claims he is not a member of the Friends WhatsApp group and appears to be unaware of its existence.
In a conversation with Heart, the host asked, “Is there a Friends’ WhatsApp group?” To this, Paul Rudd responded, “If there is, I am not on it.” A voice in the background could be heard saying, “What a shame!”
The reporter then tells Paul Rudd, “I am going to thank you for being in Friends because Friends still on at my house. Did you have a lot of fun doing it?”
To this, the Ant-Man actor responded, “Yeah I did, it was really fun and they were great. The whole thing was a bit surreal; I must say you know to be a part of that because I came on really late at the end.”
Recently Paul Rudd confessed that he felt ‘strange’ to be a part of the Friends finale episode. Asked about the same, he responded, “I mean I was in the last episode and I just thought, I shouldn’t be here. This is..I’m getting like a front row seats..I am not supposed to see they were all crying. It was all emotional. Yeah, cool and I was just like woah! It was really, I mean, it was I felt very privileged but I was also like, I just I don’t..I just want to sit back here and not get in the way.”
