The Friends co-stars Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox truly became close pals over the show and still remain extremely close. No wonder the Monica-Rachel rapport looked so natural on-screen. Apart from spending the big holidays and birthdays together, their friendship is special given that Aniston is also the Godmother for Courtney's child. In February, for Jennifer's birthday, Cox wrote to Aniston on Instagram, "The world definitely got brighter the day this girl was born," for her 50th birthday. 'Friends' Reunion in the Offing?
