Some things are just perfect. Namely, Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox‘s real-life friendship. Our nostalgic hearts crave confirmation that the Friends stars are bona fide friends and still likely enjoy hanging out in coffee shops together. And while this is probably the closest we’ll ever get to a Friends reunion, Jennifer is expected to be longtime pal Courteney’s maid of honor at her wedding this summer, and we’re probably more excited than they are.
Courteney will allegedly be marrying Snow Patrol singer Johnny McDaid in the coming months, and Jennifer is lined up to play an important role in proceedings. A source told The Mirror that the pair are as tight as ever. So, to our delight, there was no doubt that Jen would be maid of honor on the big day.
“Courteney and Jennifer are thick as thieves, and they have [become] even closer in recent months,” the source said. “Courteney wouldn’t want to walk down the aisle without Jennifer by her side. They have a very strong friendship.”
They duo was actually just spotted together at a California benefit dinner on Saturday, June 2. However, we’re all very well aware that their friendship dates back more than 20 years. And now, (very) loosely following the Friends storyline in which Rachel, Monica (and Phoebe) promised to be each others’ maids of honor, Courteney and Jennifer have managed to do the same.
You might remember that Courteney was chosen to be Jennifer’s maid of honor for her wedding to Justin Theroux in 2015. There were reports that Courteney stayed at the wedding, partying through the night into the early hours. We can only hope that Jen will be returning the favor at Courteney and Johnny’s reception. Ladies, we look forward to the selfies!
