It looks like Courteney Cox is still close to her former 'Friends' co-stars Matt LeBlanc and Jennifer Anniston.

Cox, who played Monica Geller on the hugely popular sitcom, met with Aniston, who played Rachel Green, and LeBlanc, who played the hilarious Joey Tribbiani, Fox News reports.

"A rare night and I love it," the actress wrote alongside a selfie of the trio that she shared on Instagram Saturday night.

The hit sitcom saw fans cherish performances by characters Monica, Rachel, Ross, Phoebe, Chandler, and Joey, who became household names as they settled into life in New York City while dealing with roller-coaster relationships and careers decisions. (Instagram)

Cox recently shared a picture of herself with another Friends co-star Lisa Kudrow, who plays the eccentric Phoebe Buffay, singer Charlie Puth, and director Judd Apatow. "Trying to play it cool with all this heat," she wrote in the caption.

The heartwarming photos come just weeks after the sitcom celebrated its 25th anniversary on September 22.

A new book celebrating the iconic show revealed that actor Matthew Perry allegedly refused to do a scene in the popular 1990s show where his character, Chandler Bing, was set to sneak into a gay bar to get his favorite sandwich.

Chandler, throughout the long-running show, was portrayed as a character who was suspected of being homosexual by the other characters on the sitcom. 

The new book, which reveals behind-the-scenes-snippets from one of television's most popular sitcoms, has now shed some light on how Perry shut down a possibly controversial plotline.

The writers had ideated that Chandler would visit a gay bar because he liked the tuna melts they served. However, Perry was not very pleased with the plot: "Perry said no, and the story was shelved," author Saul Austerlitz said in the book titled 'Generation Friends: An Inside Look At The Show That Defined a Television Era'.
 
It is not clear whether Perry refused to perform the scene because of its premise or for some other reason.

That said, the hit sitcom saw fans cherish performances by characters Monica, Rachel, Ross, Phoebe, Chandler, and Joey, who became household names as they settled into life in New York City while dealing with roller-coaster relationships and careers decisions.
