It’s been over a decade since they shared the screen in Friends, but Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston are still just that — friends, and best friends to boot. In fact, the two have been so close for so long, they are starting to coordinate their ensembles on girls’ night out!
The BFFs acted as each other’s plus-ones at the “Our Majestic Oceans” benefit dinner hosted by Chanel and the Natural Resources Defense Council on Saturday night in Malibu. Likely realizing they’d be photographed together frequently throughout the evening, Cox and Aniston arrived in artfully coordinated ensembles.
Cox opted for a white blouse and high-waisted black pants. She accessorized the outfit with black heels and a tweed handbag by Chanel. Aniston also chose black heels and a handbag by Chanel (a beaded clutch), but she went monochromatic in an all-black high-waisted pants and blouse combo topped with a sharp tuxedo jacket.
In short, the ladies looked fabulous — and they made an especially fabulous duo.
Although Cox and Aniston have been photographed together many times over the course of their longtime friendship, this marks one of the first public outings they’ve enjoyed together since Aniston announced her separation from Justin Theroux in February.
Aniston has kept a relatively low profile in the time since. However, a source told People that both Aniston and Theroux have essentially resumed their pre-married lives. “Justin has moved on with his life in NYC,” the source claimed, adding that “Jen still enjoys hers in L.A.” and “loves socializing with friends.”
Earlier this year, fans were convinced those friends might include the friends. A fan-made trailer posted to YouTube showcased the whole gang back together again, teasing a Friends movie. While the trailer created a frenzy for a minute, it didn’t take long to figure out that the trailer featured clips from the actors’ other projects over the years.

But hey, perhaps there’s still hope. During a 2016 tribute to director James Burrows on NBC, Aniston revealed that the key is the acclaimed man behind the camera.
“We would do anything for Jim Burrows because he really gave us the opportunity of a lifetime and probably the best 10 years of our acting careers that we will forever remember. We experienced friendship, family, heartbreak, babies, everything together. We also sort of had a wonderful experience with the world loving us, as well. They connected with us,” Aniston shared.
Are you hearing what we’re hearing? There’s still a chance.
