Friends were the show that made Courteney Cox a star, but the actor told Willie Geist that her remembrance of working on the show is a little fuzzy.
Then, during a long “Sunday Sitdown” interview with Geist, Cox joked about how she should have rewatched the show before she appeared on “Friends: The Reunion” in May 2021.
She said, “I don’t remember being there during the reunion.” “Yeah. In the past, I don’t remember making so many episodes.”
“Sometimes I see it on TV, and I think, “Oh my God, I don’t remember this at all.” It’s so funny, though.
She doesn’t remember making the show because she has a “bad memory.”
“It’s very simple,” she laughed. “I don’t remember any bad things that happened to me when I was a child, but I have a few. What do I know? I don’t know. I don’t understand why.”
Cox was a little sad that there aren’t more tangible reminders of her time on the show.
“I’m a little bummed that we didn’t spend more time taking pictures when we were in the city. It’s because I don’t have a lot of things to look back on, “She said.”
During the 1994 episode, the actor said she didn’t know how popular the show would be at first. When the show took off, her whole life changed in a matter of seconds. There are a few things she doesn’t remember from her time on the show, but she has one clear memory of a trip she took with the cast before it aired. Director Jim Burrows took the form of “Friends” to Las Vegas and told them to enjoy the moment, so they did, too.
“He gave us $500 each.” Because it will be the last time that all six of you can walk through a casino together, “She said.” “Asked: “Really??” It was true. We never did that again.
“I don’t want to say, “Look at us.” Neither of us is a band called “the Beatles.” but people think they know you. “She kept going. “People might find it interesting if we all walked down the street together.
Because the last episodes of Friends were shown in 2004, you can still watch them on HBO Max, which has brought the show to new people. When Cox talks about how popular some things are, it seems like they haven’t changed at all.
“That it’s still important to me is weird. The other day or the day before, I walked out of the hotel, and I asked someone, “How did I become popular again?” Cox laughed. Many people think “Friends” will never die, so there are many paparazzi around.
“It doesn’t matter what age group is watching it at all. It stands up. I think the comedy is important, “Cox went on. “People can connect with every character. Because I don’t care how big the cell phone is, The computer is too heavy for you to pick up on your own and move. Life is like that.”
