Brooke Shields has claimed her ex, former tennis player Andre Agassi, smashed his Wimbledon trophy along with other prize cups, in a jealous rage over her guest starring role in a 1995 episode of ‘Friends’.
Brooke Shields writes about her former marriage in new memoir
Writing in her autobiography, There Was A Little Girl: The Real Story Of Mother And Me, the actress recalls how her then boyfriend stormed off the set of the popular sitcom after watching her film scenes with Matt LeBlanc.
10 years on we look at what it was that made TV series 'Friends' so special.
We’re feeling pretty nostalgic (and old) because it’s been ten years since the final episode of Friends aired. We’d sort of been getting by on the hope that a reunion episode would take place, but mean Matt LeBlanc ruined that dream. The actor, who played Joey, recently said: “That show was about a finite period of time in life, after college and before your relationship and family starts and where your friends are your support system. That’s what the magic of the show was - everyone goes through that and can relate to that.”

That wasn’t the only magic that Friends had. The reason that the show was so popular for so long was a combination of a dozen or so factors that just worked. The chemistry between the cast was palpable, you could just tell that Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox were best friends in real life and that translated onto their onscreen friendship.

We were used to him as Joey Tribbiani, but what do we really know about Matt LeBlanc?
For 10 years Matt LeBlanc was a fixture on our television screens as Joey Tribbiani, one sixth of the world’s most famous ‘Friends’. But when the show ended in 2004 LeBlanc faced tough times, after his spin off series ‘Joey’ flopped, he fell into TV obscurity, retreating to his Santa Barbara ranch and shunning the spotlight. Then in 2011 Matt returned to our screens playing a fictionalised version of himself in ‘Episodes’ a role which has since earned him a Golden Globe award. But as familiar as face Matt is, how much do we really know about the actor, away from his famous ‘Friends’ role? Here’s five things you didn’t know about Matt LeBlanc before and after he found fame as Joey Tribbiani.
Matt LeBlanc played Joey for 10 seasons on 'Friends'
1. Before he was known as Joey on ‘Friends’ Matt was a regular feature on US television as ‘that guy from the Heinz ketchup commercial’.

A 'Friends' reunion is not going to happen and Courteney Cox has said so.
It must be hard for the former cast members of our favourite 90’s sitcom ‘Friends’. It seems wherever they go and whatever they might be doing now, the big question still is, will there be a 'Friends' reunion? Courteney Cox was the latest victim of the oh so familiar question when she appeared on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman' on Monday. Unsurprisingly the answer was “it’s not going to happen”
Is a 'Friends' reunion happening? Absolutely not, says Courteney Cox
Whilst it might break the hearts of many ‘Friends’ fans, Courteney did her best on ‘The Late Show’ to try and put the reunion rumors to bed once and for all. When quizzed by the chat show host the actress firmly stated, “it’s not going to happen”. The former Monica also added that if she did say she’d like it to happen then all the other cast members would have to be contacted and told “well Coutneney’s into it” and she just doesn't want to be responsible for that headache.

'The One Where They Reunite': will there ever be an end to the rumour of a 'Friends' reunion?
The rumour of the Friends 2014 return is doing the rounds again and seems to be as unfounded as ever. Fake reunion movie and episode posters are once again circling the internet and simultaneously driving hardcore Friends fans wild as well as provoking a collective cry of "just let it go already!!"
The 'Friends' Reunion Rumours Seem To Be Unfounded For Now.
Fans of the show are divided into two camps: those who salivate at every tidbit of reunion gossip, ready to jump back on the sofa for those first jangly strains of 'I'll Be There For You,' and those who for whatever reason, feel the franchise is best left at its rather neat finale which aired in May 2004 and are perfectly content with their Burj Khalifa-rivalling skyscraper of all ten Friends box sets.

Lisa Kudrow felt left out, when she read false reports that her co-stars had already agreed to do a Friends reunion.
Friends fans might have had their dreams squashed by NBC adamantly denying any rumours of a reunion, but so did Lisa Kudrow. During her appearance on Conan this week, Kudrow admitted to having fallen for a false report and a rather convincing graphic. In fact, the Friends actress claimed the graphic was so good, that she began wondering why no one at NBC had spoken to her about joining the project.
Kudrow herself was fooled by reports.
"Okay, first of all. The graphic for this one thing was unbelievable. It looked really real," Kudrow told Conan O'Brien. "And then they were posting this article and the headline was like, 'NBC Confirms 5 out of 6 of the Friends Are In,' and I went, 'Oh my God. They didn't ask me.'"
Sad news, but it's probably for the best? At least that's what Kudrow thinks
Fans of hit U.S comedy Friends (or F.R.I.E.N.D.S because, why not?) were either horrified or gasping with excitement when rumours of a Friends (F.R.. alright fine) movie were bandied around. A Friends reunion, though, is not on the cards, according to everyone’s favourite kooky New Yorker, Phoebe Buffay (although she’s a real person and she’s called Lisa Kudrow.
Too old? Kudrow thinks the time has passed for a reunion
Talking to CNN about her current work, Kudrow was dragged back into a Friends chat, as she so often is.
