Actress Elle Macpherson says she regrets appearing on the American sitcom Friendsnbsp;as Joey Tribbiani’s Matt LeBlanc roommate-turned-lover Janine Lecroix.

The 52-year-old actress who appeared in five episodes of the popular TV series in 1999 said she would not have signed onto the show had she known how popular it would be decades later reported Digital Spy.

quot;If I’d known how important it was in the US or how long it would be on TV I may not have chosen to do it.

quot;It was a lot of pressure if you look at it in the way that it will be around for 20 or 30 yearsquot; she said.

Macpherson also revealed that NBC offered her more of a storyline but she turned it down as she was living in London at the time.

quot;Friends is still very popular where we live in America and reruns are on constantly.

quot;My son and his friends know me as Janine Lecroix and they are always like ‘Oh you know Cy’s mum she is on Friends’quot; she added.
