With Friends being filmed over the course of 10 seasons, it’s only natural that the main cast of the beloved American sitcom struggle to remember a couple of things that they did or said while on set. However, it seems Courteney Cox remembers way less as she revealed she struggles to recall many special moments during the show, even some of her favorites.
The Scream actress sat down with TODAY‘s Willie Geist to reflect on the ups and downs of her career. Some of her intimate reflections include a few unique revelations that she’s had thus far but it also includes a major regret that she holds–a regret that ties into why some of her Friends memories vanished.
Read on to find out why Courteney Cox’s Friends experience has become a blur.
Why Courteney Cox doesn’t remember her time on Friends
Much to our surprise, Courteney Cox’s realization that she doesn’t remember much of Friends all began at the show’s reunion held earlier last year. The actress stated she couldn’t genuinely answer some of the questions asked during the reunion largely because most of her core memories jumbled together.
“I should’ve watched all ten seasons because when I did the reunion and was asked questions, I was like, ‘I don’t remember being there,'” Courteney told Willie Geist. “Yeah. I don’t remember filming so many episodes.”
As for why she doesn’t recall much about her unique experience, Courteney said she simply has “bad memory,” explaining, “I don’t remember any trauma in my childhood, but I have, like, three memories. I don’t know. I don’t know why.” This is why, in hindsight, she wishes she took more pictures and videos on set as they would’ve been great keepsakes to fondly look back on years later.
“I’m kinda bummed that we didn’t spend more time taking pictures. Because I don’t have a lot to look back at,” Courteney expressed.

Courteney may not be able to call to mind much of Friends, but what she does recall is how special of a show it truly is no matter how much time has passed.
“It doesn’t matter what generation is watching it. It holds up,” Courteney stated. “People can relate to every character. I don’t care how big the cell phone is. The computer you can’t lift. Life is that way.”
