Starring on one of the most popular shows of all time won’t hurt your bank account balance, especially when that show is just as beloved years after the series finale. While the show was on air, these stars were raking in big money; in seasons 7 and 8, each actor was paid $750,000 per episode and for seasons 9 and 10 they were each being paid a whopping $1 million per episode. The epic salaries made Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow the highest paid television actresses up to that point. Now that the show is in syndication, the actors are still making lots of money off of it. The show brings in $1 billion each year for Warner Bros and the Friends (who each get 2% of the syndication income) receive around $20 million every year. But the biggest question now is, all of these years later, have they increased their wealth or let it dwindle away? Read on and find out how much the stars of Friends are worth now.
6. Matt LeBlanc
Estimated Net Worth: $60 million. Matt LeBlanc may have played a struggling actor on Friends who regularly had to borrow money from roommate and bestie Chandler, but in real life he was doing just fine for himself. His career may not have seen another spike like the one it did when he was on Friends, but an attempt at his own show (remember Joey…maybe not) and movie roles have helped to keep him fairly active and sitting on an impressive $60 million fortune.
