Courteney Cox discusses filming 'Friends' reunion: 'It was fantastic'

Courteney Cox described filming the highly anticipated “Friends” reunion special as an “emotional” experience.

The actress, who played Monica Geller during the show’s 10-year run, recently reflected on getting back together with her former co-stars last month to film the reunion.

“It was unbelievable. It was so emotional,” she said while appearing on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

“It’s an unscripted reunion, but we got to be on Stage 24 for the first time — all of us — in, I forgot how many years — 15 years or 17 years,” she continued.

She added that many moments from their time on the show came up during the special that she’d forgotten about.

“It was great — it was really fun,” she said. “We had a lot of special surprises, and it was fantastic. It really was.”

The premiere date for the upcoming special on HBO Max has not been revealed yet. Filming was delayed several times due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Although the host for the special has not been revealed, we know the show’s stars, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Cox, Lisa Kudrow and Matt LeBlanc, will all appear to reflect on the sitcom’s lasting impact.

The cast previously revealed they will appear as themselves, not their famous characters, during the reunion.

“We’re not portraying our characters,” Kudrow shared while appearing on a podcast in January. “It’s us getting together, which doesn’t happen a lot and has never happened in front of other people since 2004, when we stopped [filming ‘Friends’].”

Schwimmer reiterated they will not be in character during another appearance last month, but did tease, “there is one section, I don’t want to give away — where we all read something.”
