Cox’s star is located very close to where Aniston’s is, making the two Friends co-stars now fellow Walk of Famers. Aniston spoke about her relationship with Cox while at the ceremony, reflecting on a friendship that goes back three decades.
“To be friends with Courteney is to be family with Courteney, and she is responsible for all of that,” Aniston said. “From the beginning, when we met her, she was immediately inclusive, warm, loving, interested in everything about you.”
Aniston continued, “She instilled into all of us, into our DNA, to support each other and to love one another, and that actors need to support and love one another, not compete with one another. And those wise words have stayed with me.”
