Jennifer Aniston as Alex Levy
If you don’t know Jennifer Aniston, then you got to be kidding me.

The show became a phenomenon and gained so much success that other shows can only dream of.
In 2003, she won Best Actress – Television series musical or comedy for ‘Friends’. Meanwhile, she also won a Primetime Emmy in the Outstanding Lead Actress category for the show. The series helped her in garnering worldwide success and became the highest-paid TV actress of all time (along with her ‘Friends’ co-star) with her $1 million-per-episode paycheck during the final season of the show.
