Courteney Cox

Friends wouldn't be Friends without Phoebe Buffay, let's get that straight. The iconic, quirky character always saw life through another lens, and had a neverending supply of enviable vintage rings.

But according to the actress who played the hilarious character, Lisa Kudrow, playing the role wasn't easy for her. She even needed her co-star's help to handle the pressure.

The 56-year-old comedian made her comments while hiking with Kevin Nealon for his YouTube web series Hiking With Kevin yesterday.

Kudrow is a graduate of the prestigious Vassar College, where she majored in biology. She later rose to fame with her popular, slightly ditzy role on Friends for 10 series, until 2004.

"I had played dumb girls, sure. But it wasn't really me," Kudrow told Nealon.

"I feel like s**t, I tricked them. At the audition, I was the only one who could cope with the audition process and that's how I got it, I think. So I had to work hard at being Phoebe, you know."

LeBlanc, who played Joey Tribbiani on the show, noticed something was up and gave Kudrow a much-needed pep talk.


"And then like third season in, I was struggling so much," she said. "And Leblanc was like, 'What's going on with you?' And I said, 'I can't, I don't think I have it, I mean, I don't know what I'm doing.'

"And he went, 'You're her, relax, you got it. You've been doing this f**king character for three years. You're working too hard. That's your problem. You don't need to work this hard. Relax.' He was right."

Kudrow also revealed that she has never actually watched an episode of Friends. "I should," she said. "I hear it's good."

Another day, another epic youtube video from David Dobrik.

We are starting to believe that the 22-year-old has no limitations when it comes to attracting Hollywood's biggest names into his vlogs.

First, he had Kendall Jenner and now he has the legend, Courteney Cox.

Courteney's appearance all began when one of his vlog squad members turned 23. 

The birthday gal was Suzy and she is a massive Friends fan.

The video shows the gang heading to Malibu to check out a "rental house" for Suzy's birthday party – when it was actually Cox's house.

Cue a cake and the big surprise.

We have to say that Courteney looks FAB and Suzy was totally shookth.

The birthday gal took to Instagram to thank David for surprising her.

She wrote: "Hands down, the BEST BIRTHDAY I’ve ever had & all because of @daviddobrik." 

"Thank you once again for surprising me with #courteneycox this was honestly a dream come true."

"You never fail to make the people around you happy and filled with love. Yeah .. you’re a little crazy sometimes but, you’re David & cmon, who doesn’t love David??! You gotta be crazy not to love David! Haha! Thank you once again for this AMAZING surprise. I still can’t believe it. I love you so much," she added.

The only questions we have is…how do we get David to be our friend?

And what other famous faces will grace his videos?

However, one thing is for sure, no one is topping his birthday gift.



Courteney Cox says she and her boyfriend Johnny McDaid prefer not to put a label on their relationship.

The long-time partners have been dating for nearly five years and are in no rush to get married anytime soon.

The Friends star told People that the word husband is just “a label”. What really matters is their devotion to one another.

“We’re not married. I’m married in my heart,” she said.

The actress, who was previously married to David Arquette, has already done the whole wedding ceremony and said she has realised where the value lies in a relationship.

“We have [a ceremony] every morning when we look at each other,” she explained.

Johnny added to his girlfriend's words, calling her his “best friend” and “partner in everything”.

“When I write her poems, it’s just an extension of how I feel every second anyway, and that’s true for me,” he told the magazine.

Love is all about quality time and the gestures ones show each other, according to the happy couple.

In fact, that is how the pair plan on spending the holidays this season.

Courteney’s 14-year-old daughter Coco will be joining them for a fun, family Christmas – a tradition where the three “hang out, sing songs, play music, eat and drink…and be together.”

Courteney and Johnny are still as head over heels as when they first met and are prioritising what really matters in their love life.



In Friends, Phoebe and Rachel nearly lost their minds when Monica let them decide who would be her maid of honour.

The pair lied, auditioned and did everything in their power to win, but in the end, Rachel proved that she would be the perfect maid of honour for Monica.

And it looks like Jennifer Aniston has followed in her character's footsteps as the actress is going to be former co-star Courtney Cox’s maid of honour.

Courtney is set to marry Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid in the coming months. The actress gushed about Jennifer admitting that she "wouldn't want to walk down the aisle" with anyone else.

It is understood that the pair has grown even closer since their time on the show: “Courtney and Jennifer are as thick as thieves and they have got even closer in recent months,” a source shared.

They added: “Courteney wouldn't want to walk down the aisle without Jennifer by her side. They have a very strong friendship."

Courtney has been a huge support to Jennifer since she split up with Justin Theroux back in February.

Their friendship has only grown stronger since the end of Friends in 2004.

Courtney and Johnny McDaid are set to have two wedding ceremonies, one in Derry and another in California.

It is understood that the ceremony in Northern Ireland will be a “simple and stylish” affair, and the Malibu ceremony will be far more “lavish and posh.”

Courtney and Johnny will reportedly tie the knot this July.


Iconic Friends actress Courteney Cox has voiced her support for Repealing the 8th amendment ion a recent tweet.

The Couger Town star took to Twitter to share her support for abortion rights with an upload of a recent video by Together for Yes. 

Stars like Saoirse Ronan, Robert Sheehan, Cillian Murphy, Pauline McLynn, James Nesbit and Game of Thrones' Liam Cunningham featured in the video about why they will be voting Yes in the upcoming referendum. 

The video opens with the line, “In Ireland today” and goes on to list the variety of ways in which women are currently affected by the 8th Amendment in this country.

Courteney shared the video to her 1.11 million followers, to spread the repeal message. 

Courteney has had her own experiences with pregnancy, and has one daughter named Coco.

However, the actress has dealt with miscarriages in her pursuit of a family. 

'I get pregnant pretty easily,' she told People magazine, 'but I have a hard time keeping them.' 


In the wake of Angelina Jolie’s shock divorce filing, the Internet reacted as appropriately as expected by sharing memes, GIFs and videos of Brad’s ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston.

But while the Mother’s Day actress has remained tight-lipped on the high profile split, her good friend and former co-star Courteney Cox has come forward to ask people to leave Jen out of the Brangelina drama.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the Cougar Town star said Brad’s marriage trouble has nothing to do with her 47-year-old friend.

“It’s not about her,” she said.  “I feel like we’re exacerbating it by even talking about it.”

Jen’s current partner, Justin Theroux, issued a similar message recently when he said the very inclusion of his wife’s name in the Brangelina divorce commentary is “nonsense”.

During an interview with Business Insider, he said: “There are bigger things to b*tch about.”

“It's shocking how much bandwidth things can take up when there are far more important things going on in the world.”

“As a child of divorce, all I can say is, that's terrible news for those children and that's all you can really say,” he continued.

“It's boring to comment on anything else. People are having a bad time – that's horrible.”

While we know every little detail about our favourite sitcoms, we're always a little stunned when the people who actually starred in them struggle to remember past storylines or gags.

Thankfully, it looks like the good folk behind one of the biggest sitcoms of our generation ensured their cast members kept on top of things when it came to the show's trivia, and two of them went and proved it this week.

Appearing on the Celebrity Name Game, Courteney Cox tested her former co-star Lisa Kudrow on her Friends trivia, and that girl nailed it.

While the questions weren't exactly difficult – Where did they drink coffee?! Puh-lease! – the two gals gave us serious nostalgic feels about our favourite New Yorkers who shut the door on apartment 20 for the final time back in 2004.

Reunion show, anyone?



Now, this is a wedding we'd want to go to.

We all know wedding bands can be totally hit and miss; some people are into the music and some aren't – but we'd say there wasn't ANY room left on the dance floor at this Irish wedding last weekend.

In one of the greatest musical combinations ever, Ed Sheeran played with Johnny McDaid and his band Snow Patrol on Saturday.

Johnny's younger sister tied the knot in Derry, and Beech Hill Country House Hotel shared a video of the musical stars playing together on the night.

Johnny brought his girlfriend (and rumoured fiancé) Courteney Cox along to the big day, which sparked the news that they were the ones getting married, but the Friends star was simply there to wish Johnny's sister well.

According to Belfast Live, Courteney and Johnny stayed at the family home in Culmore,Derry, and were spotted strolling at Queen’s Quay over the weekend.


Bear Grylls seems to be better than any talk show host when it comes to getting information out of people.

The whole world was shocked at the end of last year when Courteney Cox and Johnny McDaid called in quits on their engagement – just weeks before they were set to tie the knot.

The couple reconciled a few months later, but Court kept quiet about the whole thing – until now.

While on a hike with Bear, the actress opened up to him, saying: "We were engaged for over a year and then we broke up.

"There's something about… you know, he's from Ireland. And the way he regards love is precious," she said.

"We have to treat it in a different way. It's more special… you coddle it. I didn't know how to regard love the way he does.

"And I definitely made a lot of mistakes that I see, whether it's co-dependency or people-pleasing. I didn't know how to bring it in.

"It was always external. I definitely have learned a lot, and no matter what, I will be a better person from the break-up, even though it was so brutal," she admitted.


Hollywood may be all glitz, glam and gleaming smiles on the surface, but at a deeper level many of its best known inhabitants find themselves under serious pressure to defy the effects of aging. 

In a new episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls former Friends actress Courteney Cox revealed that she was one such star.

During a rather candid conversation – which was filmed right here in Ireland – the 52-year-old actress told the British adventurer that she now regrets having experimented with plastic surgery in the past.


She said: “Getting older, I don't think that's the easiest thing.  But I have learned lessons.”

“I think I was trying to keep up with getting older and trying to chase that [youthful look].  It's something you can't keep up with.”

According to Vanity Fair, the mother of one did not reveal which procedures she’s actually undergone, but did admit that at times she was left feeling dissatisfied with the results.

Courteney said: “Sometimes you find yourself trying and then you look at a picture of yourself and you go ‘oh god, I look horrible.”’

“I have done things that I regret and luckily there are things that dissolve and go away.  So that's good because it's not always been my best look”

Thankfully it seems Courteney’s days dabbling with cosmetic enhancement are over as she has since adopted a more natural approach. 

“Now I have a new motto,” she said.  “Just let it be.”

Last month, Courteney Cox went on an adventure with wildlife expert Bear Grylls.

However, as they made their way through the green grass of Ireland, Bear pointed out that they have to collect their dinner.

Not looking too happy, Courteney asked him what that was, and the adventurer lists out an "Irish menu" for her.

"Birds, if you catch them, worms, lots of, bugs, grubs, insects, flies, crickets, caterpillars."

Courteney didn't seem too happy about the "Irish menu" and said she rather eat grass than any of that stuff.

And to be honest, we don't blame her. Ewwwww.


Courteney Cox is just back from our fair green isle, but that doesn’t mean things are peachy between her and her partner, Johnny McDaid.

The couple were photographed in Notting Hill and it looks like they were having a major row – and Johnny looks like he’s in the bad books.

In the pictures obtained by the Mail, Courteney can be seen breaking down before getting into a hated argument with the star.

It is rumoured that the couple are having a secret wedding in October, after splitting just before their nuptials last year.

Let’s hope this was just a fight about the table plan!
