Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox will always be there for Lisa Kudrow.

In honor of Lisa's 59th birthday, the two took to their Instagram Stories to pay tribute to their former Friends co-star.

On July 30, over a series of posts, Jennifer, 53, shared a throwback pic of the besties from the 2003 People's Choice Awards as well as a GIF of their Friends characters jumping up and down and clapping with the message, "I Love You." She also included a recent selfie of herself kissing Lisa on the cheek, captioned with three emojis: a red heart, birthday cake and kissy face.

Courteney, 58, also shared a video of herself and Lisa laughing together on her Instagram Stories. "Happy Birthday loot," she wrote with the clip. "You make everything better. And funnier!"

Jennifer, Lisa and Courteney played BFFs Rachel Green, Phoebe Buffay and Monica Gellar on the NBC's hit sitcom for 10 seasons from 1994 to 2004. Nearly three decades later, the trio remain ultra tight IRL and even maintain a group text

"Lisa, Jennifer and I all have a text chain, but to me it's too much pressure. I'm not into the group text chain. I really don't like it!" Courteney, 58, told Us Weekly in 2018. ""And then you have something funny to say and you say it but then you send the text and they don't get it."

"It's a lot," Lisa admitted.


Last summer, Jennifer, Lisa and Courteney reunited onscreen with co-stars David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc for HBO Max's the Friends reunion special. But as for a potential reboot of the series, don't expect the cast to be meeting at Central Perk anytime soon.


"I don't think there's going to be a Friends reboot," Lisa said in a March interview with Where Is the Buzz. "I mean, not with any of us in it. But a reboot where they hired other actors? I would be for it." 

She added, "I would love to see what the now version of that would be."
