Friends might have made Jennifer Aniston, Matt Le Blanc, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry and Lisa Kudrow household names, but there was one thing about the hit show they would have done differently.

In a new interview with The One Show, Aniston revealed none of them liked the iconic theme song - which featured the whole cast splashing about in a fountain to Rembrandts' I'll Be There For You.

"No one was really a big fan of that theme song," she said. "We felt it was a little ... I don't know. Dancing in a pond? A fountain felt sort of odd. We did it because we were told to."

However, the 47-year-old actress did admit she often watches the show re-runs.

"I can't help it. First, I'm trying to remember which episode it is, and then half the time I'm saying to myself, 'I don't remember that'," she said. "You get sucked into the nostalgia of it."

Earlier this year, her co-star David Schwimmer shared a very different perspective on the series responsible for catapulting the cast into stardom.

As he told The Hollywood Reporter:

"It was pretty jarring and it messed with my relationship to other people in a way that took years, I think, for me to adjust to and become comfortable with."

Schwimmer also explained that it actually affected his ability to do his job properly.

"As an actor, the way I was trained, my job was to observe life and to observe other people, so I used to walk around with my head up, really engaged and watching people," he said.

"The effect of celebrity was the absolute opposite: it made me want to hide under a baseball cap and not be seen. I realised that after a while I was no longer watching people; I was trying to hide."
