Courteney Cox Opens Up About 'Emotional' Friends Reunion: 'You Whatever, We're Over It'

Courteney Cox has ruled out reteaming with her Friends castmates for another reunion.

Last year, the six pieces appeared together in a one-off special where they looked back on the hit ’90s sitcom and shared memories of how they made it.

Speaking to Faith Hill for Variety, Courteney explained that aside from a dinner, the reunion marked the first time all six actors had been together in more than 20 years.

I’m very close to everyone, but we don’t all see each other,” she explained. “We didn’t have all [been] in the same room [apart from] once, all six together, from the royal show. We are so busy.

“But the girls see each other a lot, and we see each other separately.”

On the emotional impact the show had on her, Courteney continued: “Walking onstage at Warner Bros was the most emotional thing, I immediately burst into tears. So many things had happened, so many years of being together. Whatever, we’d been through it.”

Ruling out a second special, he added: “We’re not going to do another meeting. You can imagine? When we’re 80 and ‘go back in’.

“I don’t feel closed, but I feel like the luckiest [person]. I can’t believe I got that role and got to make those friends and be a part of something that’s still going on.”

Courteney’s co-star Jennifer Aniston has repeatedly spoken about the surprise she felt at how emotional she was to be back on the set of Friends while filming the reunion.

Months after the special aired, Jen revealed that he had actually left the set several times during the recording.

She said: “It just caught me off guard because it was like, ‘Hey, past, remember me? Do you remember how she sucked? Did you think that everything was in front of you and that life was going to be wonderful and then you went through perhaps the most difficult moment of your life?’

“It was all very jarring and of course you have cameras everywhere and I’m already a bit emotionally accessible, I guess you could say, so I had to back off at certain points. I don’t know how they cut around it.

“That was what was jarring, that we all had an idea of ​​what the future was going to be and we were going to hunker down and focus on this or that and then everything changed overnight, and that was it.

“But again, everything is a blessing if you are able to see the ups and downs of life that way. And if it all hadn’t happened, she wouldn’t be sitting here like the woman that I am.”
