Courteney Cox Got Engaged at Jennifer Aniston's House
By Jackie Willis
Courteney Cox's real-life engagement story sounds like an episode of Friends!
The actress celebrated the 20th anniversary of her beloved sitcom on Monday's Jimmy Kimmel Live! and revealed how her pal and former co-star Jennifer Aniston helped her beau, Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid, pop the question.
“We went to Jen’s house for dinner because it was Coco’s birthday, and she was god mom,” recalled Cox, 50. “They [McDaid and Coco] made a plan to count down from three, and when they got to one, he was gonna get down on his knee and say, ‘Will you marry me?’ and she was gonna say, ‘Will you marry him?”
She added, "They planned it out… It was just beautiful."
The stories didn't stop there! Cox also revealed to Kimmel that she and the Friends cast used to watch the sitcom together. "We did it every single Thursday for like the first year. I provided some good snacks." That's such a Monica thing to do!
The actress admitted that it still "bums" her out how everyone wanted "The Rachel" haircut and not "The Monica." She quipped, "I mean, we had the same hairdresser! I don’t understand… I just kept changing mine. I was like, ‘If you don’t like it, then I’ll just keep doing it.’ Nothing ever stuck.”
Celebrate the 20th anniversary of Friends, which was on Monday, Sept. 22, with this ET flashback moment!
