But Cox’s most notable role was on the influential show Friends. Starring alongside Aniston as Rachel Green, Matthew Perry as Chandler Bing, David Schwimmer as Ross Geller, Matt LeBlanc as Joey Tribbiani, and Lisa Kudrow as Phoebe Buffay, Cox portrayed Monica Geller in all 10 seasons of the hit ’90s show. Monica is a chef who’s the group’s mother hen.  

Monica is also Rachel’s best friend from childhood and tends to be a competitive perfectionist. She later becomes romantically involved with Chandler, and the two marry in Season 7. At the end of the series, they adopt twins. 

In the show’s infancy, Cox made about $22,500 an episode. As the series grew in popularity, so did her paycheck. During the last couple of seasons, she and her co-stars made a reported $1 million per episode. She was one of the highest-paid actors at the time.  

Despite Friends having ended over a decade ago, the star still earns plenty of money in syndication royalties. She and her former castmates had negotiated with executives in 2000. Every year, Cox makes $20 million from the sitcom’s reruns.
