Perhaps Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox’s friendship was one of the best things to come out of NBC’s hit show FRIENDS. They were not only best friends on-screen but also in real life, too. Aniston played Rachel Green, who reconnects with Cox’s character, Monica Gellar in the show after she left a man at the altar. The two girls who went to high school together became friends quickly while Monica welcomed her into her friend’s group that also included Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc), Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow), Ross Gellar (David Schwimmer), and Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry).
From prank-calling Ross with a fake accent to going on a double date with doctors, fans couldn’t get enough of Rachel and Monica. Ultimately, they became friendship goals for girls who love FRIENDS. Even though it has been quite a long time since the FRIENDS show has ended, but their friendship has only got stronger with time. Once Cox shared a picture of them together and captioned, “No matter how hard you might try … there’s only one Jennifer Aniston.” Well, we couldn’t agree more.
