10 TV Show Scenes Actors Refused To Shoot

Though it is still very much considered one of, if not the most successful sitcom ever to grace our living rooms, NBC's ten-season tale of six pals in New York City hasn't exactly aged like a fine wine, it must be said.

Among the many jokes that feel somewhat jarring when viewed through a modern lens, the constant insinuation of Matthew Perry's character of Chandler Bing being gay and that being viewed as a stick to beat him with makes for some uncomfortable viewing in 2021.

Perry himself clearly had at least some sense of just how insensitive this ongoing gag actually was, evidenced in the fact that the star once told the producers to bin an entire episode dedicated to Bing stopping by a male strip club "because he liked the sandwiches."

Said episode would have likely then seen his pals tease and dig him about his apparently controversial love of the joint to the sound of a live audience probably squirming and forcing a few giggles to appease the studio along the way.

Ah, weren't the '90s fun?
