    Actress Jennifer Aniston has finally revealed what she did with the first salary for ‘Friends.’ In an interview with PopSugar, the 54-year-old actress said she bought a Mercedes convertible.

    There was a little white 280 SL Mercedes and it was there for a long time,” she said. “I mean, it could have been over two years. And I always was like, ‘I can’t wait, someday, someday [I’ll buy it].’ And one day I bought it, and then I drove it, and then drove it again, and it never drove again.”

    However, Aniston quickly realized that the car had many manufacturing defects and called it a “nice 25-year-old mistake.” Aniston and her fellow cast members received $22,500 per episode. By the end of the series, everyone was taking home $1 million per episode.
