Does Jennifer Aniston Remember Her 'Friends'?

It seems Jennifer Aniston has forgotten about her "Friends."

Nearly six years after her hit NBC sitcom went off the air, Aniston revealed that she has no idea who her former co-star, David Schwimmer, plans to marry. In an appearance on "The Late Show" earlier this month, the actress drew a blank when host David Letterman asked who Schwimmer, who played Aniston's on-again, off-again boyfriend on "Friends," planned to marry. (The answer: Zoe Buckman, a 24-year-old photographer.)

To be fair, Aniston's been pretty busy. Like the rest of the women of "Friends," Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow, she's cultivated a noteworthy career since the show ended.

Of course, the ex-Mrs. Brad Pitt gets as much press for her personal life as she does for her professional endeavors. Much of the buzz around her new movie, "The Bounty Hunter," centers on whether or not she and co-star Gerard Butler are getting busy off-screen. A March 27 photo of Butler with his hand on Aniston's butt has the gossip hounds gabbing anew.

Another subject of speculation: if the "Friends" cast will reunite on the big screen. There's still no official deal, but with the recent success of the "Sex and the City" movie, some of the "Friends" co-stars, perhaps more than others, must be hoping a deal can be finalized soon.

What Have the "Friends" Been Doing?

Until the friends can get back together, looks at what they've been doing since the show wrapped.

Jennifer Aniston

Post-"Friends," Aniston has had her share of box office hits, "Marley & Me" and "The Break-Up," and misses, "He's Just Not That into You" and "Rumor Has It." Still, she has successfully made the leap from the small to the big screen and has frequently made Forbes' lists for her fame and earnings.

These days, though, it's her personal life that has seemed to eclipse her professional life. Aniston, now 40, has made headlines for posing provocatively on the covers of magazines. When she appeared nude on the cover of GQ in January 2009, she told the magazine she feels more comfortable with herself now than in her 20s or early 30s. "I'm healthier. I'm more at peace in my mind and with my body," she said.

She also seems to have made peace with her breakup to Brad Pitt. After their five-year storybook marriage ended, Pitt began seeing Angelina Jolie. While Pitt and Jolie may or may not be ensconced in domestic bliss, with their six children, Aniston has been linked with several different men, including Vince Vaughn, John Mayer, model Paul Sculfor and currently, her "Bounty Hunter" co-star, Butler.

David Schwimmer

Schwimmer has spent much of the last six years out of the limelight, working with his small theater group, the Lookingglass, in Chicago and trying to launch a career as a movie director.

He has had limited success as a director. His 2007 film "Run, Fat Boy, Run," a British romantic comedy, bombed at the box office, but USA Today said Schwimmer possessed filmmaking finesse "having wisely chosen strong comic material for his debut behind the camera." He also reportedly met his soon to be wife during the making of the film.

In front of the camera, Schwimmer, 43, hasn't seen much action besides guest starring roles on "30 Rock" and "Entourage," where he played himself. Ironically, in the "Entourage" episode, agent Ari Gold tries to steer his career back to television.
