Friends is one of the most popular television shows in history. From 1994 to 2004, America tuned into the hit sitcom to catch up on the lives of their favorite set of six friends – Monica, Rachel, Joey, Chandler, Ross, and Phoebe. Friends is one of those shows that nearly everyone has watched at some point in their lives, but there are some true die-hard fans out there that can’t get enough of it – even years since the show has ended. The show also gave us some very attractive-looking characters and in this list, let us look at some of the hottest female characters on friends.
Here are the ten hottest female characters on friends show.
10. Melissa Warburton
Melissa Warburton, played by Winona Ryder, was one of Rachel Greene’s sorority sisters in college. Ryder is drop-dead gorgeous, and the story of how she and Rachel made out after getting too drunk at a college party certainly adds to her entire appeal. Add to that, the end of the episode, in which Rachel and Melissa kiss again, and you’ve got yourself one of the sexiest guest characters of all time.
9. Erika Ford
In the star-studded episode, “The One After the Super Bowl,” Brooke Shields made her appearance as Erika Ford, the obsessed and slightly deranged stalker of Joey’s Dr. Drake Ramoray. Erika can’t seem to come to a grip with the fact that Drake Ramoray is a TV character, so she thinks everything on Days of Our Lives is real.
8. Charlie Wheeler
A lot of the time Friends plays around with extremes, but Aisha Tyler’s Charlie is a rare case of brains and beauty. Charlie is torn between Joey and Ross and she pushes Joey into some interesting territory as he deals with his own intellectual limitations. Charlie is pretty much the whole package and one of the hottest female characters on friends.
7. Ursula Buffay
Ursula is Phoebe’s twin sister. However, she often treats Phoebe as if she were a complete stranger, to the point where it’s almost like Ursula forgets she even has a sister. She also dated Joey for a brief period. This romance also takes place during the earlier seasons of Friends. Ursula only gets together with Joey to drive her sister crazy, but Joey has actual feelings for her.
6. Kristen Leigh
Gabrielle Union plays the beautiful Kristen Leigh, who Joey and Ross fight over. After she moves in across from Central Perk, both Joey and Ross ask her out on a date, and she agrees to both of them. The guys just don’t know it. When they do find out, they agree to each go out on one more date with Kristen to see who she likes more.
5. Janine Lacroix
After Chandler moves in with Monica, Joey places an ad for a new roommate in “The One Where Phoebe Runs”. Attractive Australian dancer Janine applies and Joey immediately gives her the room without knowing anything else about her. Joey is very taken by his new Australian model roommate Janine, played by Elle Macpherson, no less. It very quickly turns to disaster.
In “The One with the Dirty Girl,” Rebecca Romijn plays Cheryl, the dirty girl. Cheryl is a paleontologist who dates Ross briefly. We know something’s up because Cheryl is one of the most beautiful women on the planet and Ross is, well, he’s Ross. We learn what’s so wrong with her when she first opens the door to her apartment. Clothes and trash are scattered everywhere, but Ross sticks it out because he realizes just how hot Cheryl is.
Paget Brewster’s Kathy is a personal favorite of many. Especially, because the rift that she caused between Joey and Chandler in season four was one of the better storylines in the show. Played beautifully by Brewster, Kathy is first seen by Chandler at Central Perk and he approaches her to ask her out. Coincidentally, she tells him that she’s actually waiting for her date, who turns out to be none other than Joey.
2. Cassie Geller
Cassie is Monica and Ross’s cousin, portrayed by Denise Richards. First, she is spotted by Chandler, who is struck dumb by her beauty. Next, it’s Ross, her own cousin, who is so blinded by her attractiveness that he convinces himself that she has feelings for him as well and makes a move. Obviously, she gets grossed out by this advance. After that, when Cassie is staying with Phoebe, Phoebe sees her coming out of the shower and gives her a look that tells the audience that she too feels the same as Ross and Chandler.
1. Rachel Green
Our first-choice pick should come as no surprise. Rachel Green is one of the main characters on the show, played by Jennifer Aniston. She’s sweet and she charms everyone she meets. From the beginning of Friends, it was clear that Ross and Rachel were meant to be. They went through their ups and downs, but ultimately they ended up together by the end of the show.
