Elle McPherson Sets Record Straight On Rumours She Regretted Starring In Friends

"Had I known how successful it was before going, I think I would have chickened out because it was such an iconic show."

It's no secret that many Friends guest stars had the time of their life filming with the gang. 

From Ugly Naked Guy to Brad Pitt, praises have been sung by all. 

Among the biggest names to get involved has been supermodel Elle McPherson. The Aussie appeared in five episodes of the hit sitcom in season six which aired in 1999/2000 - playing Joey's flatmate/girlfriend/generally hot dancer girl.

Quotes from the model have been interpreted to say she wishes she'd never done the show as she couldn't have predicted how long it would stick around in pop culture for - but now she wants to make sure we know that wasn't the case:

“I never said I regretted appearing in Friends,” Macpherson told us inside the Lexus Design Pavilion in the Birdcage at Flemington on Derby Day.

“What I said was, had I known how successful it was before going, I think I would have chickened out because it was such an iconic show and I probably wouldn’t have felt up to the job.

“But fortunately I went, I took a risk, I didn’t know how big of a risk I was taking, and I had the most incredible experience.”

Now isn't that just kick-you-in-the-crotch, spit-on-your-neck fantastic?

There's a lesson for us all here! You'll only regret the things you don't do. 

Especially when they involve standing five centimetres away from Matt LeBlanc in the 90s...
