I think skinny Friends star I immediately think of David Schwimmer. Didn't try Cox until 3rd.

I agree, that seemed an odd clue to me. Sure she's thin, but not necessarily known for it. Maybe "Friend's star who played Monica Geller?"

Agreed. My first thought was Matthew Perry, who had a couple REALLY skinny years in there, but he's Canadian. Plus I'd count all three main "Friends" women as skinny.

You could probably just cut out the word skinny. There's only six "Friends" stars, after all--doesn't take too long to go through them (I also came to the right answer 3rd, after trying Schwimmer and Perry--forgot he was Canadian.)

She was the first one I thought of. Courteney Cox lost a ton of weight during that show. She looked downright skeletal at points. There is probably a better way to clue her, maybe "star of Friends and Cougartown," but I think she is the skinniest of the six friends.

It's probably a reference to her character losing a ton of weight, the characters talk about it all the time on the show.

David Schwimmer screams New York. It'd be like Woody Allen or Jerry Seinfeld being from Alabama.

Courtney Cox was my sixth guess, I suppose because I remember her from the final season when she was anything but skinny. Lisa Kudrow I think of as skinny throughout the show's run.

not a complaint, but sometimes an iconic first name or nickname gets the answer. I thought "Bo" would have done it - especially given the clue. I think qm is a bigger fan of basketball than of baseball or football and maybe more of those are added?

I tried "Bo" too, just because of what the clue is.

Paul Bryant is not from Alabama, but from Arkansas.

Yea, no way Bryant should be on the this list. As far as I know never was in the state of Alabama until he went to college there. Definitely better answers are out there.
