The Friends actress posted a video to her Instagram account showing her photobombing several fans' photos. She says in the clip, "I am working at Warner Brothers, and I thought this is a good time for me to surprise Friends' fans and photobomb their shots." The 58-year-old actress starred as Monica Geller in ten seasons of the iconic sitcom. Friends first premiered in 1994 and aired until 2004 on NBC.

The iconic orange couch is placed in front of the fountain where the opening sequence was originally shot. So, Cox hid behind the couch and popped up as fans had their photos taken. Then, when they were shown the photos to see if they liked their picture, they saw Cox in the background. One fan immediately started to cry tears of joy and asked, "Is this really happening to us right now?" Another fan exclaimed, "It's Monica!" Everyone was excited and couldn't believe that this was seriously happening. Cox appeared from behind the couch to greet the happy fans and give them hugs. Courtney Cox recently reunited with her other castmates for Friends: The Reunion, a special on HBO Max. The cast reminisced about their time working together and shared fun behind-the-scenes info on the hit series.

Cox captioned her Instagram post, "Don't you hate a photo bomber? #friends." Normally we'd agree with her, but in this case, we totally would love to have Monica Geller in our photos!
