Courteney Cox was the special online guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Wednesday night. The former Friends star revealed that despite playing Monica Geller for 10 seasons, she doesn’t recall very much.

“I don’t remember even being on the show,” said Cox, “I have such a bad memory.”

Cox went on to explain that she remembers the show, she just doesn’t remember the small details. “I remember obviously loving everyone there and having fun,” said Cox, “And I remember certain times in my life when I was there but I don’t remember episodes.”

She also admitted that she is terrible with trivia questions derived from the series. She told Kimmel, “I would never pass, I’d fail every test.”

Cox and her Friends co-stars were supposed to recently film a reunion but it was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. And with everyone socially distancing themselves from Central Perk, Cox thought this would be a great time to see what her Friends have been up to.

“I decided to binge watch Friends,” she told Kimmel, “I just started season one. It’s really good!”

The cast announced the news of the reunion with identical pictures on Instagram, writing: “It’s happening…”

Kevin Reilly, chief content officer, HBO Max and president, TBS, TNT and truTV, said in a statement back in February: “Guess you could call this the one where they all got back together — we are reuniting with David, Jennifer, Courteney, Matt, Lisa and Matthew for an HBO Max special that will be programmed alongside the entire Friends library.”

“I became aware of 'Friends' when it was in the very early stages of development and then had the opportunity to work on the series many years later and have delighted in seeing it catch on with viewers generation after generation,” he added.

“It taps into an era when friends —and audiences — gathered together in real time and we think this reunion special will capture that spirit, uniting original and new fans.”
