All The Failures The Friends Cast Had Before Their Big Break
Ever felt like you're never gonna break through, and the hard work will come to nothing? So did each and every one of the most well-paid sitcom stars in the WORLD, before they got their big breaks.
Did you know that Matt LeBlanc had exactly $11 in his bank account when he auditioned for Friends?
Or that Lisa Kudrow was fired from her role as Roz in little-known comedy Frasier?
And the big one - Matthew Perry pitched a cute idea for a sitcom about a bunch of twenty-somethings to NBC, in the early 90s. It got turned down because they were commissioning another show called 'Friends'.
The rest, as they say, is history - but make sure you read about all the failures the cast endured before that sweet $1 million per episode cheque. Solid proof that success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
