If there's one thing that makes us feel really old, it's being reminded that the child actors who appeared in Friends are now actual adults. And it turns out that starring in the hit sitcom is still a pretty big claim to fame - even if you were a baby at the time.

(Remember when everyone went wild earlier this year when the teen who played baby Emma joked that she’d finally woken up from her nap?)

Who could forget when Phoebe Buffay gave birth on the show? Phoebe - who was acting as a surrogate for her brother - didn’t realise she was going to be giving birth to triplets. But instead of casting a variety of unrelated babies to play triplets Leslie, Frank Jr. Jr. and Chandler, producers cast quadruplets Alexandria, Paul, Justin and Cole Cimoch for the season six episode The One With Joey's Porsche.

BELOW: A-list stars you NEVER knew were in Friends


Friends: A-list stars you had no idea were in the show

Dakota Fanning
1 of 10

She made the transition from precocious child star to A-lister years ago, but aged ten, Dakota Fanning played Mackenzie, a young girl who becomes Joey's confidante. She's all grown up now – and still a bit precocious.

Steve Zahn
2 of 10

He's starred in Dallas Buyers Club and Modern Family, but before all that, Steve Zahn played the iconic role of Canadian ice dancer Duncan, Phoebe's secret gay husband, who she married to help get a green card.

Rebecca Romijin
3 of 10

Back in 1997, Rebecca Romijn was a model who got her first-ever acting gig on Friends. She played Cheryl, Ross' beautiful girlfriend with a filthy apartment. We reckon the X-Men and Ugly Betty star can now afford a cleaner.

Alex Borstein
4 of 10

"Why don't you like me?" That's the big question that Alex Borstein yells as she makes her debut fronting a one-woman show that opens with the line, "Chapter One: My First Period." These days, everyone likes Alex, who voices Family Guy matriarch Lois.

Cole Sprouse
5 of 10

Cole Sprouse played Ross' son Ben years before he caused double-trouble with his brother Dylan on The Suite Life Of Zack And Cody. Yes, they grew up and got unnervingly attractive. Consider this, guys: Ben would now be 25.

Ellen Pompeo
6 of 10

She's one of the highest-paid actresses on TV. But before Grey's Anatomy, Ellen Pompeo played Missy Goldberg, Ross and Chandler's former classmate, who used to make out with Chandler in the science lab after hours. Dr Grey would be appalled.

Dan Castellaneta
7 of 10

You will know Dan Castellaneta by his famous alter-ego Homer Simpson. But before he was rolling in "D'oh!" he appeared as a janitor at San Diego Zoo, who tells Ross what happened to his monkey, Marcel.

Hank Azaria
8 of 10

Proving that The Simpsons and Friends universes co-exist, here we have Hank Azaria, who's best known for playing every other character in Springfield, including Moe and Chief Wiggum. Hank played David, who breaks Phoebe's heart when he moves to Minsk.

Mae Whitman
9 of 10

Her Arrested Development character Anne was memorably known for being forgettable – so it's fitting that we'd forgotten about Mae Whitman's star-turn as Sarah Tuttle, an adorable Brown Bird girl who breaks her leg selling cookies. Correction: Ross breaks her leg.

Jane Lynch
10 of 10

Rumour has it that Jane Lynch auditioned for the role of Phoebe. Instead, she had to make do with the slightly less significant role of Ellen the estate agent. She later made her massive mark as Glee's tyrannical Sue Sylvester.

Twenty years ago, thanks to never-ending Friends nostalgia, Alexandria is now internet famous, after revealing her connection to the show on TikTok.

In the cute video - soundtracked by the famous theme tune_I’ll Be There For You_by The Rembrandts - Alexandria shares pictures where she is being cradled by Chandler (Matthew Perry) and babysat by Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow). The clip, which was posted last month, has racked up an enormous 2.7 million views. And you can watch it here.
