Like Courteney Cox, another Friends star admits she can’t remember most episodes


friends has played such a big role in pop culture and in the lives of fans that still refer to the iconic NBC sitcom on the daily (guilty as accused) that it’s a bit jarring to learn that the main cast aren’t as familiar with the details of the show as people who’ve enjoyed multiple reruns over the past 20+ years. Courteney Cox blamed her poor memory when speaking about not remembering filming scenes and episodes from the show, and now one of her co-stars has echoed Cox’s feelings.

Lisa Kudrow earned six Emmy nominations (and one win) for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for the role of the fugitive Phoebe Buffay friends. She was recently a guest on Andy Cohen is alive, where she took a question from a caller relating to Courteney Cox’s comments at that time in her life, which were slurred, and Kudrow admitted the experience was the same for her:

Yes, Courteney and I are completely in the same boat. We don’t even remember what the episodes were. I know I haven’t seen all the episodes.

So not only does Lisa Kudrow not remember what went into the production of the episodes, she also admitted that she didn’t even watch all the episodes of the career-defining series. That’s a tough little thing for that friends Fan to wrap their minds, but The coming back The actress’ reasoning actually makes sense. for one thing friends premiered in 1994 and I’m sure we have all aspects of our career that we don’t remember 28 or even 18 years later.

In order not to watch all the episodes, there are many actors who do not watch their work. However, Lisa Kudrow said the cast actually watched the show together in the beginning, but “then you get busy and then you get tired.” When they stopped watching the episodes together, she didn’t always have time to do them friends Appointment inspection, which was everything at that time. She said:

You don’t sit there on a Thursday at 8 o’clock and watch TV because, you know, I have a kid and things are happening and there hasn’t been a TiVo yet. And now you have to explain what TiVo is.

Oh Tivo. Who can forget the first playback from DVR? A lot of people probably since it’s no longer there. with friends When you’re almost constantly in syndication and streaming alongside some of the best shows on HBO Max (not to mention the DVDs, if you’re still a bit dated), it’s easy to forget that when the sitcom aired and one episode missed live meant you missed it entirely until Summer’s repeat. Seriously, how did we do that?

Lisa Kudrow’s comments come after Courteney Cox made her claims Sitting on Sunday. The actress Monica Gellar, whose friends Connection helped land their current gig Glowing Valleyshe said when asked questions about the show Friends: The reunionShe had trouble answering because she didn’t “remember being there.” She continued:

I see it on TV sometimes and I stop and I’m like, ‘Oh my god, I don’t remember it at all.’ But it’s so funny.

Matthew Perry speaking about it his struggles at the HBO Max reunionHe has also admitted to not remembering some of his time friends, but for a much sadder reason. The Chandler Bing actor struggled with addiction and previously said he was does not remember three yearsbetween seasons 3 and 6 as he was “a little upset at the time”.

the friends The actors may have erased the experience from their memories as they moved on to other projects, but don’t worry, fans will be there for you as far as capturing the episodes in our minds. All 10 seasons, including the reunion special, are available to stream with HBO Max subscription.
