American actress Maggie Wheeler portrayed the larger-than-life character Janice on the wildly popular sitcom Friends from 1994 to 2004.
And the New York City native still looks fantastic today, more than 16 years after the iconic series aired its last episode on NBC.
Maggie, 59, spoke warmly of her character - who was known for her screeching catchphrase 'oh my god!' - during an interview on The Morning Show on Thursday.© Provided by Daily Mail You'll never guess what Janice looks like now!

When asked by hosts Larry Emdur and Kylie Gillies about her famous catchphrase, Maggie said she was 'never sick of hearing it'.
She added: 'I love [Janice], she lives on!'
Janice's full name on the series was Janice Litman-Goralnik, and she made her debut in 1994 as the obnoxious girlfriend of Chandler Bing (played by Matthew Perry).© Provided by Daily Mail Famous character: Janice's full name on the series was Janice Litman-Goralnik, and she made her debut in 1994 as the obnoxious girlfriend of Chandler Bing (played by Matthew Perry)
Maggie explained it was her idea to give Janice a high-pitched, grating voice - which went on to become a running joke for 10 seasons - because she felt her character needed to match Matthew's comedic energy.
'I just made the decision when I saw the audition scene,' she said, referring to a scene in which Janice purchased Bullwinkle socks for her boyfriend.
'I created the laugh because Matthew Perry is so funny and I knew he would make me laugh on set,' she added.© Provided by Daily Mail On-set secrets: Maggie explained it was her idea to give Janice a high-pitched, grating voice because she felt her character needed to match Matthew's comedic energy
'I thought Janice better have a laugh because he will crack me up every time we work together, and so that is how that happened.'
Despite only being written as a one-off character, Janice featured in all 10 seasons of Friends because the show's executives loved her so much.
'The writers fell in love with Janice and they continued to bring me back and find ways to write her into episodes and seasons,' she said with pride.
Maggie added that she hoped Janice would appear in a Friends reunion someday.© Provided by Daily Mail Various roles: Outside of Friends, Maggie also appeared in a string of '90s and early 2000s sitcoms including Seinfeld, Will & Grace and Everybody Loves Raymond. Pictured in 2016

She explained that while work has slowed down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, she has a number of other passion projects on the go.
'I am a song leader,' she said. 'I am holding very large international community singing events while everyone is shut down.'

Kevin Garnett Says Older NBA Players Couldnt Have Played In A Bubble Because Theyd Be Naked Too Much
NBA legend Kevin Garnett had a wild take on why players from his generation could have never played in a bubble.
The league is currently operating a bubble system in Orlando during the coronavirus pandemic, and it’s going incredibly well. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
However, the retired Boston Celtics star doesn’t think he could have done it. Why? There’d be too much nudity! Listen to his absurd comments below.
“We could NEVER play in the bubble… you know how much I’ll be screaming ‘get that sh*t out of here’… players walking around naked, balls swinging…”
KG said his generation couldn’t do a bubble. ????

I understand there’s a lot of reasons why players might not want to be in a bubble, but too much nudity and “balls swinging” around damn sure wasn’t one of them.
I don’t even really understand the point Garnett is trying to make. Is he saying older NBA players were just always walking around naked?
If so, why? That’s incredibly strange.
Imagine having to explain to Adam Silver you can’t play in a bubble because there’d be just too much nudity for the cameras.
It literally doesn’t make sense at all. I’m pretty confident the cameras aren’t in the hotel rooms.
Luckily for the guys in Orlando, this doesn’t seem to be a problem and the NBA’s been crushing coronavirus. As for Garnett, he might want to explain a bit more what he means because I’m confused as all hell right now about why older NBA players are apparently incapable of keeping their clothes on.
