Aniston's name has been trending on social media consistently in the week following the 'Brangelina' divorce bombshell.
Courteney Cox has stepped in to defend her former ‘Friends’ colleague Jennifer Aniston from the media spotlight and speculation that’s surrounded her ever since the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie divorce came to light, saying “it’s not about her”.
The ‘Brangelina’ split has been the dominant news story for the past week and, one day after the divorce story came out, social media was flooded with gifs and memes of 47 year old Aniston cheerleading and celebrating Ang and her ex-husband Brad’s misery. #JenniferAniston even briefly became the second most popular topic on Twitter, behind #Brangelina itself.

The 52 year old former ‘Friends’ star spoke to Bear Grylls in a new episode of ‘Running Wild’ that aired on Monday (August 22nd), taking time out from hiking and survivalism in the Irish Highlands to talk about her career and love life.
“Getting older, I don't think that's the easiest thing. But I have learned lessons,” she told Grylls. “I think I was trying to keep up with getting older and trying to chase that. It's something you can't keep up with.”

Courteney Cox has directed the new music video for singer Foy Vance which stars her 12-year-old daughter Coco. Coco, whose father is Cox’s ex husband David Arquette, rides a bike and enjoys ice-cream in the sentimental video and she also served as the inspiration for the track.

Fans didn't get their long-hoped for new episode, however
The much anticipated reunion of everyone’s favourite 1990s sitcom stars finally arrived with the cast of Friends getting back together for NBC’s Tribute to James Burrows on Sunday. All of the Friends minus Matthew Perry, at least.
Jennifer Aniston led the tribute to James Burrows alongside her Friends co-stars
The cast of ‘Friends’ came together last night, as part of an NBC special honouring director James Burrows.
Last night the cast of ‘Friends’ (minus Matthew Perry) reunited for a one-off special honouring director James Burrows. While it might not have been the full reunion that fans wanted, Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt Le Blanc and David Schwimmer were all on hand to spill secrets from the series, over a decade after they said goodbye for good.

The 'Friends' reunion certainly started off with a ‘big bang’ over the weekend.
The cast of ‘Friends’ have been pictured together for the first time in years, as part of an NBC event to honour TV director James Burrows. David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox were all present, with only Matthew Perry notably absent. However the group did find three interesting replacements for their missing cast member.
If you were hoping for a proper ‘Friends’ reunion, be prepared to have your hopes dashed once and for all.
When news that the cast of ‘Friends’ would be reuniting next month broke, many fans of the mega-popular 90s sitcom thought their reunion dreams were finally coming true. But not only is the upcoming ‘Friends’ reunion not really a reunion at all, it’s also definitely not a precursor to a ‘Friends’ movie or even a Netflix-style reboot.

The cast of ‘Friends’ (minus Matthew Perry) will all be together for an NBC special on Sunday, February 21st to honour TV director James Burrows.

Yes, you did read that correctly! For the first time since 'Friends' ended in 2004, cast members are due to get together for a TV special in February.
More than a decade since it went off air, ‘Friends’ is set to get a long-awaited cast reunion, as the stars have announced they will get together for an NBC special in honour of the comedy’s director, James Burrows.
NBC made the exciting announcement on Wednesday (January 13th) at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Pasadena, California. Burrows, who directed 15 ‘Friends’ episodes as well as a number of other comedy favourites like ‘Taxi’, ‘Cheers’, ‘Frasier’ and ‘Will & Grace’, recently wrapped the 1,000th episode of television he’s filmed in his career.
Lisa Kudrow will be joining the NBC special

The pair had met in late 2013 and got engaged in summer 2014, but rumours that McDaid had left before Thanksgiving have turned out to be true.
Courteney Cox has called off her 18 month long engagement to rocker Jonny McDaid, according to new reports, after he had left the family home late last week and flown back to Britain.
The former ‘Friends’ star had been engaged to McDaid, the guitarist with British group Snow Patrol, since June 2014, the pair having started dating since late 2013. The pair had not been spotted in public since attending the premiere of Hand of God back in August this year, with Cox posting a picture of her fiancé on social media in September.

In ‘The One With The Mugging’ Jennifer Aniston was temporarily replaced by a stand-in and it took fans 12 years to notice.
Most of us could probably recite episodes of ‘Friends’ word for word, but one keen-eyed fan has made a startling discovery while revisiting the classic sitcom on Netflix recently. In the season nine episode titled ‘The One With The Mugging’ there’s a split second where Rachel Green is NOT played by Jennifer Aniston and the internet’s mind is blown.
Jennifer Aniston played Rachel Green on ‘Friends’ (most of the time).
During one scene in the episode, Joey is enthusiastically ranting about the potential of a monkey also being at his audition, while Rachel stands behind him in a printed shirt. But when the camera pans back that’s not Jennifer Aniston standing behind Matt LeBlanc and she’s not even wearing the same shirt.
One ‘Friends’ viewer has shared his vision for how the sitcom could have ended, which sees Phoebe as a homeless drug-addict.
If you’re still mourning the loss of ‘Friends’ after all these years, then one fan’s bizarre (and kind of believable) take on how the sitcom could have ended might give you something to think about. What if 'Friends' hadn’t ended with them all leaving Monica’s apartment? What if all 10 seasons were instead revealed to have happened inside the imagination of Phoebe Buffay, who didn't actually have any friends at all?
Lisa Kudrow played Phoebe Buffay in the classic sitcom.
Writing on twitter ‘Friends’ fan Gareth Stranks shared his idea for how the show could have bowed out and it quickly went viral, because, well it’s pretty extraordinary. Stranks wrote that he wanted the series to be revealed as the ‘meth-addled fantasy of Phoebe Buffay as she stared through the windows of Central Perk.’

We thought we'd dedicate this week's round-up to the celebrities who may want to lay low for a while.
Lana Del Rollercoaster: Lana Del Rey has had a week she'll never forget. The pop star's new album, Ultraviolence, has been met with positivity by critics and has earned Del Rey her first Billboard 200 number one. However, the singer's album publicity has risked being blighted by certain comments Lana made in a recent interview in which she appears to glamorise the troubling trend of musicians dying young. Decide for yourself here. Kurt Cobain's daughter, Frances Bean, lashed out at Lana over her words. Find out what went down.
Gary Oldman Blunder: Silly, silly Gary Oldman. The actor has earned himself a reputation as one of Hollywood's thinkers but his thoughts on political correctness caused a stir this week. In a Playboy interview, the 56 year-old referenced Mel Gibson's infamous 2006 run-in with the police where he voiced an anti-Semitic view. In an attempt to play down Gibson's words, Oldman ended up sounding an awful lot more anti-Semitic than his fellow actor. Find out what was said. Oldman did release an apology, which can be read here.
The couple seem to have gotten engaged whilst on holiday.
Courteney Cox has become engaged to boyfriend Johnny McDaid and has confirmed the news via Twitter. The couple, who have been dating for around eight months, jetted to Amanyara in Turks and Caicos on the 14th June to celebrate the actress' 50th birthday and seem to have gotten engaged as well.
Sharing a cute beach selfie, Cox wrote "I'm engaged to him!" whilst the Snow Patrol musician posted the same photo with the caption "I'm engaged to her!"
The pair began dating last year after they were introduced by the British singer, Ed Sheeran. Although they haven't been dating that long, they're noticeably close and clearly in love.

Helping the cops rocks!
Schwimmer made sure the cops had a pretty good idea what happened that night
So he didn’t morph into anyone, but Schwimmer did invite the police into his apartment so they could peruse security camera footage of the assault, which they subsequently left with and my use in court. Robert Rainey of Newark was charged with assault, criminal possession of a weapon and robbery, sources told The New York Post. A 26-year-old was taken to Bellevue Hospital with stab wounds to the face.

'Cougar Town' will return for a sixth and final series, TBS confirmed yesterday (10th May). The finale of the show, which stars Courteney Cox, will air in early 2015.
Cougar Town has been renewed for its sixth and final series. The hit TBS series, starring Courtney Cox will finish its six year run in early 2015, it was announced yesterday (10th May).
The final season will include 13 episodes which will wrap up the series which also stars Josh Hopkins, Cristina Miller, Busy Philipps, Ian Gomez and Dan Byrd. Cougar Town centres on Jules Cobb (Cox) and her group of friends who survive the ups and downs of life in small town America.
Although the series initially aired on ABC, it was picked up by TBS in January of last year. TBS effectively saved the show from cancellation after two series on ABC. The show quickly became one of the networks best rated comedies with the most recent season averaging more than 2 million viewers with a 1.3 rating, as E! reports.

A 'Friends' reunion is not going to happen and Courteney Cox has said so.
It must be hard for the former cast members of our favourite 90’s sitcom ‘Friends’. It seems wherever they go and whatever they might be doing now, the big question still is, will there be a 'Friends' reunion? Courteney Cox was the latest victim of the oh so familiar question when she appeared on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman' on Monday. Unsurprisingly the answer was “it’s not going to happen”
Is a 'Friends' reunion happening? Absolutely not, says Courteney Cox
Whilst it might break the hearts of many ‘Friends’ fans, Courteney did her best on ‘The Late Show’ to try and put the reunion rumors to bed once and for all. When quizzed by the chat show host the actress firmly stated, “it’s not going to happen”. The former Monica also added that if she did say she’d like it to happen then all the other cast members would have to be contacted and told “well Coutneney’s into it” and she just doesn't want to be responsible for that headache.

Former 'Friends' star Courteney Cox and her partner Johnny McDaid from Snow Patrol pose for photographers as they arrive for 'The Late Show With David Letterman' in New York. Courteney is a picture of sophistication in a navy blue, low necked dress.
Cox can't get them together for a meal, let alone a reunion
The F.R.I.E.N.D.S gang getting back together has been mooted for a long time now; loads of other shows and bands for reunions, so why can’t one of the most successful sitcoms of all time get one too? Because it would be awful, that’s why. And Courtney Cox has dealt a hammer blow to those who disagree.
Courteney Cox outside Letterman
“It’s not gonna happen,” Cox told the soon to be retiring David Letterman on Late Show. "Only because once you say I like it, they contact every other cast member and say, 'Well Courteney's into it'. It's not going to happen."

Things are going very, very well for the actress and the Snow Patrol musician.
Courteney Cox may have still been legally married to ex-husband David Arquette this time last year, but things are already going so well with new beau Johnny McDaid that Cox may be looking at making the big commitment all over again. Well that's what Ed Sheeran has hinted to The Daily Mirror anyway. The British singer-songwriter has been living rent-free with the Friends actress recently which has perhaps allowed him to gauge Courteney and Johnny's relationship status.
Things Are Going Swimmingly For Courteney Cox & Johnny McDaid.
Sheeran said that the couple were already living together and that things are going rather swimmingly: "I'm not sure that it's public knowledge, so maybe I shouldn't have said anything - but, yes, they're already living together. Things are moving fast. He moved in and, judging by the last time I saw them, they couldn't be happier," he said. "They get on really well and are genuinely good friends, pardon the pun," the pop star added.
Jen and Ed apparently got together (in a strictly platonic sense) over Thanksgiving and it's pretty adorable.
Yes, we promise the Thanksgiving-related news will be over soon, but how could we help reporting on this unexpected gathering – Jennifer Aniston celebrating with Ed Sheeran. Aleen Keshishian, who is Aniston's manager, posted a pic with the pair on Instagram on Thursday and the folks at People were first to report. Alright, so it isn’t exactly an event (although we hope the chums had a nice time together), but it is a bit of a surprise to even learn that the Aniston and Sheeran are even friends. Apparently the Brit is conquering the hearts of former Friends cast members one by one. Last week, on November 19th, he shared a picture with Courteney Cox. Equally as cute, of course.
Best buds apparently. Who knew!
"My friend Courteney is nominated for a People's Choice Award for favorite cable tv actress," he wrote. "She's never won one before and she lets me [live] in her beach house so how's about we all vote for her and win her the damn thang eh?"
Lisa Kudrow felt left out, when she read false reports that her co-stars had already agreed to do a Friends reunion.
Friends fans might have had their dreams squashed by NBC adamantly denying any rumours of a reunion, but so did Lisa Kudrow. During her appearance on Conan this week, Kudrow admitted to having fallen for a false report and a rather convincing graphic. In fact, the Friends actress claimed the graphic was so good, that she began wondering why no one at NBC had spoken to her about joining the project.
Kudrow herself was fooled by reports.
"Okay, first of all. The graphic for this one thing was unbelievable. It looked really real," Kudrow told Conan O'Brien. "And then they were posting this article and the headline was like, 'NBC Confirms 5 out of 6 of the Friends Are In,' and I went, 'Oh my God. They didn't ask me.'"
Sad news, but it's probably for the best? At least that's what Kudrow thinks
Fans of hit U.S comedy Friends (or F.R.I.E.N.D.S because, why not?) were either horrified or gasping with excitement when rumours of a Friends (F.R.. alright fine) movie were bandied around. A Friends reunion, though, is not on the cards, according to everyone’s favourite kooky New Yorker, Phoebe Buffay (although she’s a real person and she’s called Lisa Kudrow.
Too old? Kudrow thinks the time has passed for a reunion
Talking to CNN about her current work, Kudrow was dragged back into a Friends chat, as she so often is.

Actress Busy Philipps has given birth to a little girl, and a big sister for her other daughter, 4 year-old Birdie.
Cougar Town actress Busy Philipps and screenwriter Marc Silverstein welcomed a healthy baby girl into their lives on 2nd July. Her representative confirmed in a statement: "I can confirm [Busy] gave birth to a baby girl on July 2 who weighed 8.5 pounds. Everyone is healthy and happy," as reported in The Daily Mail.
Marc & Busy Take A Walk In The Later Stages Of Philipps' Pregnancy.
Busy, real name Elizabeth, announced the birth herself via Instagram in a blurry black and white photo with the simple caption "So this happened...", referring to the tiny baby she was cradling in her arms. People states that during an appearance on Anderson Live, she explains her reasons for announcing the arrival of her little one to the world on Twitter: "I just wanted it to come directly from me in my voice. I always hate those celebrity statements that are like, 'We are so over the moon and overjoyed.'"

In an ultimate violation of the office romance policy, Courteney Cox and Brian Van Holt have gone public with their relationship.
Courteney Cox has been doing pretty good since her divorce from husband David Arquette (which was only finalized in May this year) and now appears to have moved on entirely. The actress is dating her onscreen ex husband (funny coincidence there) Brian Van Holt. The pair reportedly met on the set of Cox’s show Cougar Town, according to Us Weekly, who announced the relationship. So would that then be art imitating life, or the other way around?
Cox is moving on.
The relationship was made official (sort of) when Cox and her new beau were spotted dining together at West Hollywood’s Chi Lin. Apparently the two “acted like boyfriend and girlfriend,” the curious onlooker says. The relationship has been going on for a while, but now that David Arquett has gone public with his girlfriend Christina McLarty, the Cougar Town star finally has the green light to reveal her own budding romance.
Courteney Cox and David Arquette have finalized their divorce, but their friendship is stronger than ever.
Courteney Cox's divorce from David Arquette is finally complete, two years after the couple decided to end their decade long marriage. "Irreconcilable differences have caused the irremediable breaking of the marriage," say the papers signed by Cox, Arquette and a judge. "The marital status of the parties is terminated."
Friends actress Cox, 48, and movie actor Arquette, 41, announced their separate way back in October 2010 and both filed divorce papers on the same day in June 2012. By all accounts, the couple have behaved admirably through the divorce and it's easily one of the most amicable celebrity breakups of recent times - probably owing to their 8-year-old daughter Coco. The couple remain the tightest of friends, "He's my best friend in the world," the Cougar Town star said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in January. "I love him." The following week, Scream actor Arquette told People magazine, "She's incredible. ... I love her, too, and she's an amazing person, a beautiful person. I don't recommend divorce in general, but he is my best friend and we've both grown and changed, and I think we both appreciate each other more. I hope he does. I do."
Following their split, apparently over Arquette's infidelity, Courteney and Coco regularly turned out to watch the actor during his stint on Dancing with the Stars.

It was a long and tedious process, but it's finally done - the Cox-Arquette family is no more.
Some sad news today - after nearly three years of divorce proceedings, the split between Courteney Cox and David Arquette is finally official. The couple, who got together in 1999, called it quits in 2010 and have been doing to court song and dance ever since then. According to the Washington Post, a judge officially approved the split this Tuesday, after 14 years of marriage. No details of the divorce settlement have been announced.
Cox and Arquette legally separated on Dec. 31, 2011, about six months before the pair officially filed for divorce. The couple met while filming “Scream” and announced their split in October 2010. Still, the divorce remained civil and the pair vowed to stay friends and continue raising their daughter together. The struggle to get the divorce finalized has been painfully slow, so the fact that the couple managed to remain friends throughout can only be held to their credit.
Additionally, Cox and Arquette also have some shared creative ventures. After Cox gained international stardom on the 90s sitcom Friends, she moved on to the series Cougartown, which is produced, not so coincidentally, by David Arquette. The producer and actor has also appeared in such films as Never Been Kissed. The People website was the first to break the news that the divorce had been finalised.
The Ellen show became the cause for the long awaited reunion.
Jennifer Aniston got to co-host The Ellen Degeneres Show this week and gave us all a mini Friends reunion in the process. In the slightly awkward, slightly confusing bit, Aniston was nervous about the gig and she naturally went to her former co-star Matthew Perry for some sage advice. Except Perry wasn’t exactly thrilled to see her at the door, at 8AM no less. And when Aniston objected that they “used to do walk into each other’s apartments all the time”, Perry made a valid point (which went straight to the hearts of Friends fans).
Anniston was apparently the brains behind the reunion.
"That was a TV show," he counters. "We haven't actually seen each other in a really long time. Like eight years."

Well, the 'Friends' reunion was a pipe dream, but at least there's still Veronica Mars.
Did someone say “Friends reunion”? Technically, loads of people, but no one official. Sadly for all the devoted fans of the series (and there are definitely still a bunch of those around), the show’s co-creator Marta Kaufman has not only dismissed the current rumors, but she said a reunion of the 90s sitcom is never going to happen, Fox News reports. Well, that was a harsh letdown for everyone.
The buzz started earlier this week when reports surfaced that not only was a Friends reunion likely, but NBC had already confirmed the deal. There was even a photoshopped poster thrown into the mix, advertising “The One With The Reunion”, due to hit screens on Thanksgiving 2014. Kaufman, however, had this to say: “’Friends’ was about that time in your life when your friends are your family, and once you have a family, there’s no need anymore.”
According to her, now that the characters have families of their own, Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Joey and Chandler are past their coffee shop days. Even the most devoted Friends fans can probably see how that makes sense, but the nostalgia still lives on. Warner Bros. also dismissed reports that a “Friends” movie was in development, telling Zap2it there is no “Friends”-related project being worked on by the studio. Harsh. But hey, maybe that means it's time for a re-watch.

Friends creator Marta Kauffman has ruled out a 2014 reunion.
Speculation that the cast of Friends were ready to reunite for a 2014 reunion reached fever pitch last week. Jennifer Aniston, Matt Le Blanc, Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox were apparently ready to commit to another season of a show, with a graphic featuring the Friends 'sofa' and 'The One With the Reunion' began circulating online.
The apparent silence of the key stars only added to the rumors, though Friends creator Marta Kauffman finally spoke up at the Call me Crazy premiere in Los Angeles on Tuesday night (April 16, 2013). "I'm going to clear this up-it's not happening!" she said, deflating the hopes of thousands of Friends fans. "Friends was about that time in your life when your friends are your family and once you have a family, there's no need anymore." Funnily enough, Kauffman said she first learned of the rumor when overhearing some people talking about it at a bar. Nevertheless, representatives for NBC and Warner Bros are yet to comment, though a source at NBC told E! Online the rumor was "not true."
Last year, Aniston - who played Rachel Green in the long-running series - played down a reunion, especially on the big-screen. "I can't imagine how you would do it, unless you did it years from now.I can't imagine what that would be. It's not normal. Friends is in your living room; Friends is not in a movie theater. It doesn't make sense to me. I think it would be going against its authentic self."

Courteney Cox and Cougar Town returned to screens on Tuesday (January 7, 2013), with its first season on TBS. The fourth season features the same crew, despite the show having been off the air since last May. It's always been a solid ratings winner, though for whatever reason, NBC decided the show didn't fit in with their schedule. Their loss, TBS's gain.
"I can't believe we're finally back. I honestly thought we might never be in this kitchen again. Just hanging out, telling our stories to each other. To the world," said Courteney's character Jules as she stepped back into her pad. The action picked up only a week after the wedding of Grayson and Jules from the last season, suggesting things are going to very similar to the NBC show. As a special bonus to viewers sticking with Cougar Town, the cast filmed a special "sneak peek" of events that will definitely NOT be appearing in Season 4, including all the women getting pregnant, Grayson and Andy kissing, and the grisly death of Tom!
Speaking on Conan O'Brien's show this week, Cox promoted the show by promising more nudity. Sort of. "I feel like we could be a little racier. I was actually wearing my shirts lower because I felt like, 'now I'm on cable - I should just show more boobs," she said. Following last night's premiere, the former Friends actress tweeted, "Thank you for all the nice comments! We're thrilled to be back!!!"
Continue reading: Courteney Cox Thanks Loyal Fans As Cougar Town Settles In At TBS
A jump from ABC To TBS hadn’t dimmed the cast and crew’s expectations that Cougar Town season 4 wouldn’t be a success, but the ultimate reckoning will lie in how well its premiere goes down tonight (January 8, 2013).
There’s been more upheaval than just a channel change for the Courteney Cox-starring show: this will be the first season that its creators Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel won’t be at the helm, with Ric Swartzlander taking over show running duties. So is that going to upset the apple cart? According to the New York Times, no. Cougar Town follows the life of Cox’s character Jules Cobb, a recently (not-so recently anymore) divorced woman in her 40’s trying to enjoy the next step of her life. The ‘Times comments “Mr. Lawrence and Mr. Biegel must have done their jobs right because their child doesn’t need them anymore to continue to be what it has been all along: an eclectic comedy that is smarter than mainstream fare like Last Man Standing but still feels like comfort food.”
Viewers can expect more of the same, then, no great surprises and no shocking twists. That might be a disappointment to some, but then the qualities of this show are that it’s a comfortable fit, TV that seems warm-hearted and familiar. And with Cox involved, you just know there’ll be a fair dose of humor involved.
Courteney Cox's career has kept a fairly steady trajectory since the end of Friends, in which she played super-clean chef, Monica. She now stars in Cougar Town, a comedy about middle aged women going after younger men. Last year, however, she and her husband of 13 years, David Arquette, got divorced, having split two years before. Now, to publicise the newest series of Cougar Town, she's headed to the Ellen studio to have a chat with Ellen DeGeneres.
Of course, to play a cougar, she still has to look smoking hot, and she's doing pretty well. No one would ever guess she's 48. However, speaking to Ellen to revealed a couple of her top beauty secrets. Firstly, describing her hands as looking like an old woman's, she said that she gets them Fraxel lasered. Fraxel lasering essentially restores the skin's surface making it look a lot younger. Most people use it for their face, but Cox goes one step further, pampering her mitts.
Plus, she has her eyelashes Latisse treated. As you get older your eyelashes get shorter and thinner, Latisse helps them grow thick and long. They do look pretty good so obviously it's doing its job.

Either Courteney Cox is really going all out to drum up support for season four of Cougar Town, or the TBS comedy-drama just became a whole lot more, well, adult. Speaking at the Television Critics Association panel for the show, Cox joked, "You will not see one scene that I don't show my boobs. You know what? I'm getting older, so I've decided at this point I'm taking less focus off the face, and focusing [on my chest]. By the time I'm much older, I will just be absolutely nude. I think it's gonna work for me, I hope."
Though the comments were taken as tongue-in-cheek, there may be truth in what the former Friends actress promised for Cougar Town. During an upcoming episode, the actress and on-screen love interest Josh Hopkins strip down during a "naked day" to spice up their marriage. "I did know in advance [but] I did not take advantage of the time I had to know," she told Us Weekly about preparing for the nude scenes. "Lighting is everything! I'm not kidding. You could walk into a room and go, 'Wow! I look great today.' And one step further, you're like, 'Oh my God, I look horrible!"
Only time will tell whether Cougar Town has maintained its popularity, though Cox has a couple of tricks up her sleeve as insurance should the ratings slip. She's already roped in her former Friends co-stars Lisa Kudrow and Jennifer Aniston in past seasons, though reveals she's working on doing something with Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer. "I'd love to see the rest of the cast," she said, adding, "I catch re-runs of Friends and I don't remember even being there. I'm like, 'That is funny!"
Amid all the controversy that has arisen in response to the appalling video allegedly shown at the newly-wed's wedding last week, it's a pleasure to report that Jessica Biel may not be a Biel for that much longer, opting to legally take her husband's name.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel tied the knot last week in a lavish Italian wedding, with celebrations spanning almost an entire week. To further show her love and loyalty to her singer/actor husband, she has chosen to legally change her name to 'Timberlake', though she will still use 'Biel' professionally, probably to avoid any confusion in the future. She thinks she's 'really won the jackpot of names' by taking on Timberlake, reports Today Entertainment. We doubt that Justin offered to change his name to Biel, but he did pen an original song and perform it as she walked down the aisle.
Most actresses choose to keep their name, these days in line with feminism and all that jazz. However there are a select few that have opted to take on their partner's name. Courtney Cox-Arquette chose to double up after marrying David Arquette (although she's returned to just Cox after their divorce), famously Victoria Beckham took on David Beckham's name (her original surname was 'Adam's, Beckham is a great improvement) and Katy Perry made mistake of taking on Brand during her short lived marriage to Russell Brand. We just hope that Jessica will be able to keep Timberlake for the rest of her life, though, given the stats of the above marriage, 2 out of every three marriages fail.
3000 Miles to Graceland is not the realization of that dream.
