Courteney Cox Talks About What Friends Taught Her And Scream Movie

Courteney Cox Reflects on Her Time as Gale Weathers and as it’s been almost 30 years after its premiere on NBC, Friends continues to be a pop culture phenomenon, with its quotable lines, inside jokes and near-constant syndication presence. But despite all of the factors that play into keeping the sitcom relevant so many years later, there’s no way a series could have this kind of longevity without stars that legitimately enjoyed the work they were doing. Courteney Cox spoke about the support she and the other five actors had for each other, and she even quoted a little bit of that infectious theme song.

Courteney Cox, who played Monica Gellar on Friends’ 10 seasons, was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on February 27. In addition to the beloved ‘90s sitcom, the actress has starred in the horror franchise Scream and the ABC series Cougar Town. But it might not all have been possible without the vital lessons she learned on the set of the NBC hit.

Friends taught me the importance of camaraderie and really sticking together. These friendships were at the most important time in my life, and we went through so many things together. And it just taught me about being there for each other — I know, that’s the song: ‘I’ll be there for you.’ But it’s true. It was so nice to work with people that could bounce ideas off each other. Everybody wanted the best for everybody. There was no jealousy, it was only, ’Let’s make the best show we can, and let’s support each other in this.’
