Jennifer Aniston was not 29 when friends started. She ws born in 1969 and friends first aired in 1994. That would have made her 25 when it started. Her and Matthew Perry were the youngest. Lisa Kudrow was the oldest.

Revisionist history by Jennifer's publicists. She is now lying and shaving years off her age

Sorry....Actually Jennifer Aniston was born in 1969. Friends first aired in 1994. That would have made her 25.

I'm not sure if you mean real age or the age of their characters so I'm going with how old they were in real life.

Chandler (Matthew Perry) - 25 years old
Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) - 25 years old and turned 26 by the end of season 1
Joey (Matt LeBlanc) - 27 years old
Ross (David Schwimmer) - 27 years old and turned 28 by the end of season 1
Monica (Courtney Cox) - 30 years old
Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) - 31 years old

They also had an episode where Rachel turned 30 that aired in 2001 (when she was actually 32) and it was centered around her 30th birth party and flashbacks to the other character's 30th birthday parties. Which means Rachel was the youngest of the group. Also, we're led to believe Ross and Chandler are the same age since they were college roommates, and Monica and Rachel were the same age since they were high school classmates. Given that Ross was Monica's older brother, I would guess he and Chandler were 31-32 when Rachel turned 30, and Monica was 30-31. However, Ross/David is 2-3 years older than Chandler/Matthew in real life, and Monica/Courtney is 4-5 years older than Rachel/Jennifer in real life.
