Courteney Cox Shared Details About The "Unbelievable" Friends Reunion Special
Published in May 2021 / Updated in Oct 2021
Friends fans never gave up, and we are finally not talking about "if" or even "when." We are talking about the already filmed Friends reunion!
Courtney Cox was a guest on The Ellen Show and teased about what it felt like to film Friends reunion. After 17 years, we will finally get to see Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt Le Blanc, and Matthew Perry together.
Courtney Cox On Friends
The actress, best known for her role of Monica Geller, told Ellen that the reunion was "unbelievable" and "so emotional."
She did not give away any further details, but she said there will be some epic surprises:
"It's an unscripted reunion and we got to be on Stage 24 for the first time all of us in. I forget how many years. 15 years? 17 years?"
"It was great. It was really fun. We had a lot of special surprises – and it was fantastic. It really was."
This HBO's special will mark 25 years of Friends. Of course, we want details, but Courtney remained tight-lipped. She simply said:
"Everything came up that I forgot about!"
Filming The Famous Intro
Courtney recalled filming the show's intro, where the main cast is seen frolicking in a water fountain. As expected, the sequence was not fun to film:
"[It] definitely wasn't [my idea but] somebody thought that would just be really fun... We were in that fountain for a long time. And let me tell you what happens: It's not fun to be dancing in a fountain for hours and hours. I remember Matthew Perry saying at one point ... 'Can't remember a time that I wasn't in this fountain."
The actress added:
"Literally, we were just like, 'Oh my God, how much longer am I gonna pretend I love dancing in the water?' It was fun, but not really."
We are not sure how one special will cover 10 seasons since the show ran from 1994 to 2004. However, we have no doubts that it will be a night to remember for any Friends fan.
The One With The Reunion
Perry and Schwimmer were the ones who couldn't keep a secret. Perry posted a now deleted photo, with the caption:
"Seconds before eating a makeup brush."
"Not to mention reuniting with my Friends."
The capital F gave away everything. Schwimmer was even more casual about it while talking to Graham Norton. He simply stated he was on his way to film the Friends reunion.
The two incidents happened only days away from the official announcement on April 10, on the show's Instagram account:
"Could we BE anymore excited!? Friends: The Reunion is coming to @hbomax."
The only thing missing is the date. But we bet someone will spill that too because the case is truly excited and it is contagious!
