First, some intel on this sweet, sweetFriendsmoney

While the occupation ofFriendshas very different overall net scores, they all definitely made a lot of the show. Here is a breakdown of salaries by season.





season 1

Everyone was paid the same: $ 22,500 per episode. There were 24 episodes, which ended up ... * Trying to do the math * ... means $ 540,000 for the season.

season 2

The cast was making $ 20,000 and 'significantly higher' per episode in Season 2, making them a total of between $ 480,000 and $ 960,000. Seems a bit unfair to anyone on the lower end of that spectrum, but don't worry - things have changed.

Seasons 3 to 8

When the third season came on, the cast decided to negotiate as a team. As a result, they made $ 75,000 per episode in season 3, $ 85,000 per episode in season 4, $ 100,000 per episode in season 5, $ 125,000 per episode in season 6, and $ 750,000 per episode in season 7 and 8. (Yes, these numbers are accurate. I've checked them twice.)



Seasons 9 and 10

This was when things got really crazy. The cast began making $ 1 million per episode, $ 24,000,000 each for season 9 and another $ 18,000,000 for season 10. In addition, they were able to reduce syndication profits by 2 percent. Again, the show generates around $ 1 billion a year in syndication, which means everyone receives about $ 20 million annually. Insane I know but remember this money is heavily taxed!

Kay, cool, now that we've got this out of the way, here's the richest, in order of filthiest to least filthy rich:

1. Jennifer Aniston

Net worth: $ 300 million

I mean duh From everyone upFriendsJen has had the most successful career after the show - playing, producing, and endorsing (she'll shill for Diet Coke). You can read a full breakdown of Jennifer Aniston's net worth, but here's a little joke: she was paid $ 2 million per episode forThe morning show. I mean ... YOUR POWER.

2. Courteney Cox

Net worth: $ 150 million

NoticeCougar Town? Well, Courteney made $ 275,000 per episode on herFriendsResiduals. In fact, you girl made $ 6 million in 2013, she starred on the show - that same year she was a spokeswoman for Pantene.

3. Matthew Perry

Net worth: $ 120 million

Honestly, it's unclear why Matthew Perry has so damned money, but it could have something to do with his super-smart real estate investments. Back in 2018, he sold a home in Hollywood Hills for $ 12.5 million after buying it for $ 8.5 million (that's a $ 4 million profit!), And he recently listed a penthouse for $ 35 million after buying it for $ 20 million.

4. Lisa Kudrow

Net worth: $ 90 million

Apart from herFriendsLisa Kudrow earned income from her showWeb therapy, not to mention roles in hit movies likeBoss baby(Help) andBookmaker(omg, salvation fromBoss baby, Thank God). Lisa doesn't do much with sponsored content, but she's done some smart real estate deals - like selling a mansion in Park City, Utah for over $ 3 million.

5. David Schwimmer

Net worth: $ 85 million

Most of David's money comes fromFriends. But please don't forget that he was Melman the giraffeMadagascar(GIVE HIM AN OSCAR, YOU COWARDS) and starred Robert Kardashian inAmerican criminal history, which we can all agree with, was a career highlight. Unclear what he did for these gigs, but probably ... a lot?

6. Matt LeBlanc

Net worth: $ 80 million

Like David, most of Matt LeBlanc's money comes fromFriends,but he had some other lucrative projects. Let's see, first of all, he was in the criminally horrific splitJoeyand he also reportedly colored a 2 million poundTop gearHosting contract with BBC in 2016, not to mention a $ 200,000 per episode forMan with a planon CBS.

Kay, that's all ... become an actor quick, wish me luck.
