Jennifer Aniston SWIPED one of Monica’s dresses from Friends set ‘and I still wear it and it fits’

Jennifer Aniston has revealed she swiped one of Courteney Cox’ costume dresses from the set of Friends 17 years ago.

The actress, 52, told People she took ‘a dress that Monica wore,’ adding, ‘I went into her line of clothes and I pulled it out and I still have it and wear it to this day.’  

The Morning Show star was promoting the Friends reunion special for HBO Max that also stars Courteney, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc.

Courteney wore the dress while playing Monica during the show’s eighth season on the episode The One Where Rachel Is Late.

Jennifer’s character Rachel is heavily pregnant by Monica’s brother Ross and is increasingly frustrated that she has not given birth despite passing her due date.

Monica wears the dress as Rachel informs her that the doctor advised her to have sex in order to speed the process up – a plan Monica supports.

Jennifer said she has not tossed out the dress.

‘I still wear it and it fits,’ she said, and as she described it Courteney joked: ‘It’s probably gone in and out of style like four times.’

‘Oh, and it will always be in style!’ Jennifer insisted, getting a laugh out of Courteney who said that she did not steal anything.

Meanwhile Lisa kept the rings that her character Phoebe wore, and she also said that she was gifted Monica’s cookie jar by Matthew.

While Lisa was apparently under the impression that Matthew ‘asked permission’ to take the jar, which had a clock pattern on the lid, he told another story.

‘I stole the cookie jar that had the clock on it,’ admitted Matthew, who played Monica’s eventual husband Chandler, ‘and I gave it to Lisa Kudrow ’cause she at one point looked at it and thought it was a real clock and I gave it to her.’

Meanwhile: Matt confessed he 'stole an I LOVE FRIENDS license plate frame and put it on Schwimmer's car and it took him a week to realize.'

Courteney, who has described herself as ‘not sentimental,’ took nothing as ‘I’m not a person that collects things and now I regret it.’

Lisa, who described herself as a ‘hoarder,’ kept her, Courteney and Jennifer’s security badges that they used to get onto the set.

Meanwhile Matt confessed he ‘stole an I LOVE FRIENDS license plate frame and put it on Schwimmer’s car and it took him a week to realize.’

After a video of the People interviews dropped several fans were concerned by how downcast Matthew was looking.

Matthew has been open about his past addictions and once told the BBC he cannot ‘remember three years of’ shooting Friends, but has since gotten sober.

This past December his ex Kayti Edwards alleged in The Sun that when he was in the depths of his addiction he would take 80 Vicodin in one day. 

A number of Friends fans were also furious that English talk-show host James Corden was chosen to compere the reunion.

The HBO special is directed by The Late Late Show With James Corden executive producer Ben Winston and produced by Fulwell 73 of which James is a partner.

‘Was pretty much up for watching that Friends reunion, then I heard James Corden’s voice on the trailer , and I was a little bit sick in my mouth,’ wrote on Twitter user.

Another said that the Gavin And Stacey star was ‘adding the friends reunion to the list of things he’s ruined with his mere presence.’ 

The unscripted reunion special will see them chat about their memories of the show and even read through the episode The One With The Jellyfish.

During that episode Chandler infamously urinates on the leg of Courteney’s character Monica to alleviate the pain from a jellyfish sting.

Tom Selleck who played Monica’s old flame Richard and Reese Witherspoon who played Rachel’s sister Jill will also make an appearance.

Top-flight fans of the show ranging from pop stars like Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber to sporting legends like David Beckham are slated to be present.

Although the lineup includes such diverse names as Mindy Kaling, Malala Yousafzai and BTS, the reunion has drawn backlash for not having any black guest stars. 

All 10 seasons of Friends appeared on HBO Max on May 27, 2020 when the streaming service launched and they were meant to be accompanied by the reunion show.

However the reunion taping had to be delayed on account of the coronavirus pandemic which is why it is dropping a year late.

The six main cast members are reportedly earning massive paychecks for the reunion, allegedly $2.5 to $3 million each, per The Hollywood Reporter.

During the 10-season run of the NBC sitcom the six stars formed a famously close bond with one another personally and professionally.

They even banded together to negotiate an equal salary hike for all of them, resulting in a $1 million payday apiece per episode.
