F.R.I.E.N.D.S. - A TV sitcom that is not just a show, but it's now an emotion. I personally feel that it is not just a show, it is actually your best friend.
When happy, watch FRIENDS.
When sad, watch FRIENDS.
Bored, watch FRIENDS.
Just wanna hang out, watch FRIENDS.
Let me be honest, those 6 characters are my best friends. But I didn't know that they charged so much for every episode.
Okay so the above picture is enough to give you a fair idea how much they charged.
Let me be clear, they were paid 750,000$ each for every episode for the 7th & 8th season.
Yes, 750,000$ each per episode!
Just look at the hike they got. From season 6 to season 7 & 8.
Not only this, they were paid 900,000$ each per episode for the 9th season.
But then, things went complicated. Jennifer Aniston was getting a lot of movie offers, and was on the brink of quitting FRIENDS. However, the rest of the cast was so eager to continue that they were able to convince Jen to continue shooting for one last season. And yes they wanted a salary hike.
So, for the last season, the cast was paid a humongous 1 million dollar each per episode.. Could you believe it?
Do you think that's it? Nopes that isn't. The cast still makes some 20 million dollar each from re-runs by literally doing nothing..!! You want a life like that? Be awesome like them then.
