Courteney Cox Spills Real Reason Behind Decision to Binge-Watch ‘Friends’ Amid Coronavirus Crisis
Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel’s Quarantine Minilogue series on YouTube, the actress famous as Monica Geller on the hit sitcom loses a trivia quiz against the host’s young cousin.
AceShowbiz –Courteney Cox is brushing up on her “Friends” trivia while isolating amid the coronavirus pandemic, as she “doesn’t remember even being on the show.”
The actress appeared on the hit sitcom alongside Jennifer Aniston and Matthew Perry from 1994 to 2004, and is set to reunite with her co-stars for an HBO Max TV reunion special later this year.
Speaking to Jimmy Kimmel for his “Quarantine Minilogue” series on YouTube, the star revealed that she’s decided to revisit the series because of how little she remembers and how often people want to talk to her about the programme.
“I keep getting asked all these questions about ‘Friends’. But I don’t remember even being on the show. I have such a bad memory,” she confessed. “I remember, obviously, loving everybody there and having fun. I remember certain times in my life when I was there, but I don’t remember episodes. I would never pass, I’d fail every test.”
The actress bought the entire series on Amazon Prime Video, and decided to rewatch the whole thing from the very beginning.
“I decided during this time, since people love the show so much, I decided to binge-watch ‘Friends’,” she explained. “I just started season one. It’s really good!”
Jimmy then challenges Courteney to a trivia quiz, pitting her against his young cousin, Anthony, who’s a self-proclaimed “Friends” fanatic. However, Anthony was unaware he’d be playing against the star of the show and, when he appears via video link, he’s thrilled to see his opponent.
“This is the greatest moment of my life,” Anthony said while laughing in disbelief.
Ultimately, Courteney was left blushing as Anthony beat her five points to zero in the game – which focused entirely on her character Monica.
