Elle Macpherson reveals why she regrets her role on Friends

Supermodel tells whys she wishes she’d never signed on to star as Matt LeBlanc’s girlfriend

Most people would have given their right arm to star in the iconic ‘90s sitcom Friends…but not Elle Macpherson.

Almost two decades after landing a cameo on the hit show, the 52-year-old Australian has revealed how she regrets taking the part.

‘If I’d known how important it was in the US, or how long it would be on TV, I may not have chosen to do it,’ the 52-year-old told TV Week.

‘It was a lot of pressure if you look at it in the way that it will be around for 20 or 30 years.’

Elle played the role of Joey’s roommate Janine LeCroix, who became his love interest.

Joey was played by Matt LeBlanc and the pair starred alongside each other for the five-episode stint.

The mother-of-two also revealed she was invited to do more episodes, but had to decline due to her ‘living in London’ at the time.

Yet despite her regrets, the model admitted earlier this month she did enjoy kissing her co-star Matt.

During a game on The Morning Show, Elle was confronted with a picture of Matt, 49, and said: ‘Great working partner. Good kisser.’

Elle did however admit her role in Friends does impresses her 13-year-old son.

“‘Friends’ is still very popular where we live in America and re-runs are on constantly,” she said, adding “[My son and his friends] know me as Janine LaCroix and they are always like, ‘Oh you know, Cy’s [mom] she is on ‘Friends.’ They haven’t figured out it was nearly 20 years ago, they still think I am on ‘Friends.'”

The glamazon nicknamed ‘The Body’ was in Australia this month to launch her new lingerie label.

Next up, the Sydney-born stunner will be appearing on Australia’s Next Top Model as a guest judge and mentor.
