    Courteney Cox is binge-watching 'Friends' while self-isolating at home

    The 55-year-old actress - who became a household name thanks to her role as Monica Geller in the sit-com - admitted she has very few specific memories of her time on the show so she's taking advantage of having more time at home due to the coronavirus pandemic to boost her knowledge as she wants to be prepared when she's invited to take part in trivia challenges


    Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!'s at-home YouTube show, she said: "I decided during this time - people love the show so much - I decided to binge-watch 'Friends'.

    "I just started season one. It's really good!

    "I don't even remember even being on the show. I have such a bad memory.

    "I remember loving obviously everybody there, and having fun, and I remember certain times in my life that I was there. But I don't remember episodes. I would never pass. I fail every test."

    Courteney pledged that "by the end of this quarantine I'm going to know so much more".

    And it seems the actress has a lot to learn because Jimmy enlisted his cousin Anthony, a 'Friends' superfan, to go head-to-head against Courteney in a quick quiz about Monica - and he won 5-0.

    The actress didn't even know who her character's first kiss had been with.

    She exclaimed: "Ross (Monica's brother) was my first kiss? What episode was that?" Cox asked, befuddled, like the rest of us were when we watched that episode.

    Courteney had been due to be reunited with her co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer to film an HBO Max reunion special this week but it was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    She recalled how they all met with a producer to discuss the special, but her on-screen brother couldn't make it.

    She said: "We had a meeting except for David Schwimmer, who was in New York. So we were all in the same room, which was really fun."
