Lisa Kudrow Opens Up On Filming Friends Reunion Special: "It Was Really Emotional"

The 'Friends' reunion special is heading to HBO Max on May 27.

Lisa Kudrow found it "really emotional" filming the Friends reunion.

The 57-year-old actress — who recently reunited with Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, Matt Le Blanc, Courteney Cox and David Schwimmer on the highly-anticipated get-together show — admitted that it was "so thrilling" to be back with her pals.

Speaking to Extra, Kudrow said: "It was really emotional, and watching it again, watching it, I got emotional all over again. It's also really just so thrilling. We got to be together and [Matt] LeBlanc tells a story like no one else, he is so great. I laugh a lot."

The group teased the upcoming special earlier this week.

Taking to Instagram, Aniston wrote alongside the trailer: "It's official! The #FriendsReunion premieres May 27th on @HBOMax - could we BE any more excited?! (sic)"

Whilst Perry added in his own post on the photo-sharing site: "We're back! The #FriendsReunion premieres May 27th on @HBOMax. What are you the most excited about? (sic)"

Schwimmer wrote: "Finally! Had a blast with the cast and a solid nap with LeBlanc. (sic)"

Cox admitted she felt "so blessed" to be a part of the reunion.

She shared: "This kind of thing doesn't happen every year, or even every 10, or 15 years. I feel so blessed to have had a chance to reunite with my Friends ... it was better than ever."

Cox recently went on The Drew Barrymore Show to share her "emotional" experience filming the reunion. "We did the reunion. It's unscripted with lots of surprises," she recalled. "And we all got to gather on stage 24 at Warner Bros, and that is the first time we’ve done that since the show ended so it was very emotional and I just ... it was great."

At time of writing, no word whether the Friends reunion special will be streamed on HBO Go. — BANG SHOWBIZ
