We feel ancient.

After ten years of being there for us, Friends left our screens in 2004 – leaving a Central Perk shaped hole in our hearts – and we’re still not over it.

Yes it may have been 15 years since Chandler, Rachel, Ross, Monica, Phoebe and Joey made their last appearances but it still feels like it was just yesterday.

We’re still deeply invested in Rachel and Ross’ tumultuous relationship, we’ve never given up hope on Parker (Alec Baldwin) coming back into our lives, and we can’t believe how quickly the Friends children have grown up. Are we the only ones confused by our feelings for Ben now that he’s grown up and starring in Riverdale?

But it’s not Cole Sprouse who became a conversation topic this week. Instead it’s the twins who played Rachel and Ross’ baby Emma, Calie and Noelle Sheldon.

The last time we saw them, they were playing baby Gellar-Green from 2003 to 2004, but fast-forward 15 years and they’re back on the big screen.

Yes, really. The twins, now 16, are starring in Get Out director Jordan Peele’s new horror film, Us.

Acting alongside Lupita Nyong'o and Elisabeth Moss, the twins are in good company, taking to Instagram to voice their excitement.

'So happy I got to be a part of this movie, it looks amazing and terrifying!' Noelle posted to Instagram, while Cali wrote: 'Thankful to be part of such an important project, and to get to work with such amazing and talented people.’

Us has proven popular so far, reportedly breaking a record for the biggest opening weekend for an original horror movie.

Spoiler alert - it looks terrifying!
