The Real life Monkey Problem
Reportedly the Friends cast didn't enjoy working with this monkey, especially David Schwimmer, because he'd mess up scenes.
"He ate live worms and vomited," Matthew Perry told TV GUIDE. "It was a little gross."
"I hate the monkey," David Schwimmer told Entertainment Weekly.
