Although the Friends cast is incredibly grateful for the 10 years they spent on the megahit show, Elle Macpherson has some regrets.

The supermodel guest starred on the hit show as Joey Tribbiani's (Matt LeBlanc's) roommate-turned-romance, Janine LeCroix, for five episodes, but she told Australia's TV Week recently that she wouldn't have done it in hindsight. "If I'd known how important it was in the U.S., or how long it would be on TV, I may not have chosen to do it," the 52-year-old model admitted.

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

Macpherson also shared that the show invited her to film more episodes, but she had to decline the offer because she had been living in London at the time.

Despite any feelings of regret she may have, Macpherson did confess that working with LeBlanc had its perks. "Great working partner," she noted. "Good kisser."

Ooh la la!

Although Macpherson may regret her time on Friends, LeBlanc does not. He has since gone on to star in five seasons of Showtime's Episodes, but the Friends alum told E! News' Jason Kennedy at the 2016 Emmys that it was his old hit sitcom that brought him back to multi-cam comedy in CBS' new show Man With a Plan.

"I kind of missed a live audience show, you know, like Friends was, so we put this thing together and Liza Snyder plays my wife and Kevin Nealon plays my brother, and Jim Burroughs is directing, which is great. He started us off on Friends," he explained.
