Fans are already searching for Friends reunion unseen footage, but they may not have to—some moments, like one between former Friends co-stars Matt LeBlanc and Courteney Cox, were hidden in plain sight during the HBO Max special.
As for the moment in question, it took place when Cox, 56, walked onto the Friends reunion set and started to cry—and LeBlanc, 53, did the sweetest thing in response. Lisa Kudrow, 57, opened up about the touching moment in an interview with E! News on Wednesday, June 2. “Well, Courteney comes in and bursts into tears. And I grab a napkin or a tissue,” Kudrow said. “LeBlanc takes it because he is telling us a story and doesn’t want to skip a beat and starts dabbing her eyes, just on automatic.” The Web Therapy star went on to note, “That’s who we were!”
The quick yet sweet gesture was one some fans may have missed. In fact, Kudrow herself admitted she wouldn’t have caught it if not for her co-star, David Schwimmer. Kudrow revealed that the Intelligence star, 54, pointed out the moment between LeBlanc and Cox while they watched the Friends reunion special together. And if that’s not what friends are for, we don’t know what is.
