    If you're a fan of Friends, you'll remember Ross and Rachel's daughter, Emma, who was born in Season 8 and completely replaced Ben as Ross's only child.


    Well, Emma was played by twins Noelle and Cali Sheldon, who turned 17 last year, recently starred in the horror movie Us, and now look like this:

    The twins upload Friends-related throwbacks pretty regularly on their Instagram accounts, like this picture Cali posted of herself with Jennifer Aniston to celebrate the show's 25th anniversary in September.
