Friends turns 25: Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon & George Clooney, five cameos we loved from the iconic sitcom

It has been 25 years since the first episode of Friends aired. The iconic sitcom made its way to the small screen on 22 September 1994 and became a show of a lifetime. The show featured Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer in the lead. However, there were several actors who came and out to make the show memorable. While there were recurring stars like Maggie Wheeler (Janice) and Paul Rudd (Mike) who took the show a notch higher, there was a slew of cameos which made every season memorable. 

Today, as the show celebrates its 25th anniversary, we take a walk down the memory lane to list down five awesome cameos that are close to our hearts. Here's a look at our favourite cameos from Friends:

Brad Pitt: 

Brad Pitt dropped by the sets of Friends to take part in a Thanksgiving episode in the ninth season of Friends and boy, what a laugh riot it was. Pitt, who was married to Jennifer at the time, essayed the role of Will Colbert in the episode titled The One with the Rumor. Will hated Rachel and it was hilarious to watch the real-life couple argue and fight in front of the cameras. To top it off, Pheobe was all of us when she thirsted over Will throughout the episode. 

Reese Witherspoon: 

Let's face it, Rachel had a quirky family and Jill Green was just an example of it. The character was played effortlessly by Reese Witherspoon and we're sorry Amy but we loved Jill so much. Reese made her way to the show with "The One With Rachel's Sister" in season six and what fun it was to watch her. She oozed of the Green characters: She was witty, she loved all things big (come on, she gifted her friend a boat) and she was attracted to Ross (even if it was just to make Rachel jealous). 

George Clooney: 

Even George Clooney couldn't stop himself from appearing on Friends. The heartthrob was a part of ER back then and he made a fitting cameo, as a doctor, on the show in season 1 titled The One With Two Parts: Part Two. The actor took our breath away when walked in to help Rachel and Monica at the hospital. How we wish he would have stayed for a couple of more episodes. 

Julia Roberts: 

The gorgeous Julia Roberts also made her way to the Friends sets courtesy Chandler Bing. She played the role of Susie Moss, who was Chandler's former classmate. She was sweet and spice all at the same time when she takes glorious revenge against Chandler for lifting her skirt when they were young. 

Cole Sprouse: 

Long before he stole everyone's heart with Jughead in Riverdale, Cole Sprouse was our little Ben who learnt tricks from aunty Rachel on Friends. Although he was featured as Ross's son, Cole's appearances on the show were limited and we wish we were treated to more of Rachel and Ben.
