FRIENDS reunion is currently making the maximum noise all over, and why wouldn't it? After 17 long years, we finally got to see the six besties - Chandler, Monica, Ross, Rachel, Joey and Phoebe together. Matthew Perry (Chandler), Courteney Cox (Monica), David Schwimmer (Ross), Jennifer Aniston (Rachel), Matt LeBlanc (Joey) and Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe) grabbed everyone's attention as they came together for a special episode and cherished the good old memories. But among all the happy news, the weirdest piece of information that hit headlines is about Matthew Perry and Courtney Cox being distant cousins. Yep, you read that right!
A report in MyHeritage.com claims that Matthew and Courtney are 11th cousins as they share relatives William Osbern Haskell III and Ellen Haskell, a married couple who lived more than 500 years ago in England. Whoa, that's quite in the past and the two stars definitely did not know about their connection until now. As per the report, Ellen and her two sons emigrated from England to America in 1635. Her son named Roger, is said to be the direct ancestor of Courteney. Another son named William, is said to be the direct ancestor of Matthew. The connection is made through Courteney's mother Courteney Copeland, and Perry's father, John Bennett Perry.
On the show, Matthew and Monica played each others love interest and their chemistry was adored by millions. As a couple, their characters fit extremely well and they gave quite a few moments that left everyone emotional including Monica's proposal to Chandler. Their wedding on the show was also one of the best highlights of the 10 seasons of FRIENDS. Post the show, they remained to be touch and came across as best of friends. Among all, apart from the girls, Courteney has often hung out with Matthew and even shared pictures on social media.
