She Has Forgotten Quite A Lot About FRIENDS
Talking about her appearance in the HBO MAX FRIENDS REUNION episode, she said, “I should’ve watched all 10 seasons because when I did the reunion and was asked questions, I was like, ‘I don’t remember being there. Yeah, I don’t remember filming so many episodes.” “I see it on TV sometimes and I stop and go, ‘Oh my God, I don’t remember this at all, But it’s so funny,” cox added.
She also admitted that she not only has forgotten about the iconic sitcom but also about the other parts of her life too. “It’s really basic,” she said. “I don’t remember any trauma in my childhood, but I have, like, three memories. I don’t know, I don’t know why.”
Cox also revealed that she thinks it not to be a really good thing that she has some laps in her memory about ‘Friends’. “I’m kinda bummed that we didn’t spend more time taking pictures. Because I don’t have a lot to look back at,” she said.

Even after forgetting quite a lot of her FRIENDS days, there are few memories she has managed to keep alive after all these years. The director of the FRIENDS, James Burrows took the cast of the show on a trip to las vegas before the show premiered in 1994.
“He gave us all $500. And he said, ‘I want you to take care, like, really take notice of this moment because it will be the last time that all six of you together can walk through a casino,’” she said, and we were like, ‘Really?’ And it was true. We never could never do that (again).”
“I mean, I don’t wanna sound like, ‘Look at us.’ We’re not, you know, the Beatles. But people feel like they know you,” she continued. “If we were all to walk down the street, six of us, it would be, I think it would be really interesting to people.”

Looking back at the show and its legacy, Cox shared that she is happy that people love the show as much as they do.
