Jennifer Aniston Celebrated Her 49th Birthday With Courteney Cox By Her Side

Jennifer recently announced that she and her husband Justin Theroux are separating.

The month of February has been filled with celebrity celebrations.

Jennifer Aniston has reportedly attended Ellen DeGeneres’ birthday party, Amy Schumer’s wedding and recently — even had a birthday party of her own. Anytime our favorite A-listers get together in one room is pretty amazing, especially when it happens to create a sort of reunion for an incredible TV show. And considering Aniston celebrated her birthday with her former “Friends” co-star Courtney Cox — that’s exactly what her birthday was, a mini “Friends” reunion, indeed!

Cox played host to several of Aniston’s closest friends to celebrate the actress’ 49th birthday, and based on the photos that have surfaced online, these gal pals had an incredible time. Actress Andrea Bendewald thanked Cox on Instagram for hosting the get-together!

Given that Aniston recently announced she and husband Justin Theroux are separating, it was nice that she could have so many special women by her side for the occasion.

The couple released a joint statement that read, “This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year. We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship. Above all, we are determined to maintain the deep respect and love that we have for one another.”

Some relationships are short-lived, and others stand the test of time. Despite wrapping filming of their hit TV show in 2004, Cox and Aniston have remained very close friends.

The two have gushed about each other on multiple occasions. Cox reportedly said to Yahoo back in 2015, “She’s the greatest BFF.” And Aniston’s admitted that they’ve been there for each other through all the ups and downs.

“I’ve slept in her guest bedroom a lot,” Aniston reportedly told More magazine back in 2014. “Without giving away too much of my private stuff, all I can say is she’s been there for me through thick and thin.”

And as Aniston turns 49, the love and support these ladies offer to each other only continues.

You guys—they really are a real-life Monica Geller and Rachel Green! Isn’t it refreshing to hear that costars get along so well off-set?
