Courteney Cox remembered the first ever Friends episode on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday, Sept. 22 — and admitted she was pretty annoyed Jennifer Aniston's hair stole her thunder on the show!

Twenty years ago to the day that the hit sitcom first aired, Cox, 50, who played Monica Geller in the hit NBC TV show, revealed she hosted screening parties for the now legendary core cast each week, so they could watch every episode together.

But while the recently-engaged actress was in high spirits remembering the good old days, Aniston's BFF revealed she's still holding a grudge over the attention the so-called Rachel got!

"The whole cast watched, we did it every single Thursday for the first year,” the actress said of their first series screening parties. “Mostly at mine, I provided some good snacks,” she added.

When Kimmel asked if she ever wondered why nobody wanted the Monica haircut she admitted she had.

"You know what? It kind of bums me out, why didn't they? We had the same hairdresser," she said, laughing about the duo's famous hairdresser Chris McMillan. "I don't understand. I got nothing. I kept changing mine, like, 'If you don't like it I'll just keep doing it,’ and they never stuck!"
