Not all of the cast of “Friends” have gotten a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but there are two castmates’ names that you’ll see when walking down Hollywood Boulevard. Jennifer Aniston was the first of the “Friends” cast to earn her star in 2012, but none of her castmates were in attendance, per Reuters. More than 10 years later, the second person in the “Friends” ensemble landed their spot on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Courteney Cox was honored at a ceremony in February 2023, and this time around, Lisa Kudrow and Aniston were there to celebrate their co-star’s achievement, per CNN. As of 2023, Aniston and Cox are the only two cast members from “Friends” to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but Matthew Perry almost joined them.
Time was the end all be all when it came down to Matthew Perry landing a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The “Friends” actor fit the nomination criteria to a tee, so it seemed like an obvious choice, and it was! According to ET, the “17 Again” actor was chosen to receive a star back in 2013, just a year after Aniston earned her spot. Unfortunately, they never scheduled an official ceremony for Perry. Years passed, and as time went on, the award ended up expiring in 2018, so the “Friends” actor missed out on the opportunity to get his name cemented into history — literally.
