Sadly for fans, a Friends reunion isn’t on the cards just yet. However, a birthday message that Courteney Cox sent to Jennifer Aniston proves – just as the show’s theme song promises – that the cast will always be there for one another. And here’s a look at how some heartfelt words from one of the beloved series’ stars ended up sending the internet into meltdown.
Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston first became friends, well, on Friends. Yes, in 1994 the pair met for the first time on the set of the TV phenomenon as they prepared to bring to life the besties whom the world would come to know and adore: Monica Geller and Rachel Green. And just as with their characters on screen, Cox and Aniston ultimately became close in their real lives.
The actresses’ bond has seemingly endured, too – even when events could have split them apart. Take, for instance, when Aniston began stepping out with Counting Crows lead vocalist Adam Duritz at the height of Friends’ success. Then, shortly after Aniston’s fling with Duritz had ended, Cox began dating the singer, too. Yet while that could have made things very awkward between the women, they nevertheless apparently didn’t allow their similar tastes in men to affect their friendship.
