‘Congratulations my Loot. You are the most unique, loving, direct, honest, smart, funny, talented, serious competitive gamer I know,” Courteney wrote.

Not to mention talented writer, loving mother and wife. And that’s just the beginning of the list. Thank you for bringing so much joy into our lives. I love you.’

As a joke to Friends fans, she added, “Ps. I just have one question… Did you ever find out what they fed stinking cats?’

The line was a reference to Lisa’s character Phoebe writing and singing a song called Smelly Cat that begins, “Smelly cat, smelly cat, what are they feeding you?”

Meanwhile, she posted an Insta Stories photo of herself hugging Lisa and kissing her sleep, captioning it: “Happy Birthday my Floosh!!”

She also posted a throwback snap of them choking giggles on the set of Friends and captioned it, “I’ve been laughing THIS hard since day 1…I love you @lisakudrow.”

Lisa, Courteney and Jennifer rose to international fame in Friends with their castmates Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer and Matthew Perry.

This year they got back together for a reunion special that was controversially presented by James Corden whose late-night EP Ben Winston directed.

Shortly after the reunion broke up, Lisa alerted fans to watch out for a tender moment at the new Friends reunion.

In fact, the gesture passes so quickly that even Lisa told AND! News she would never have noticed if David hadn’t brought it to her attention.

At the start of the reunion special, the six protagonists arrived on the set of Courteney’s character Monica’s apartment, where much of the show takes place.

Courteney was one of the last to show up and saw Lisa, Jennifer, David and Matt sharing all their memories there.

Matt had, in fact, told a story about him and Courteney when she appeared, so he started it again for her benefit – which was when he wiped her eyes.

“Well, Courteney comes in and bursts into tears and I grab a napkin or a tissue – LeBlanc grabs it because he tells us a story and doesn’t want to miss a moment and starts dabbing her eyes, just automatically. That’s who we were!’ said Lisa.

He recalled that at one point Courteney had “this big speech and you struggled with it all week and you wrote it on the table, and then just — and I didn’t know that was what you were doing.”

Matt added: ‘And I saw it and I asked you and you told me to mind my business so when you weren’t looking I erased it before we shot it and you got so mad at me!’

‘That’s so mean! Why would you delete it?’ Courteney said with a smile and Matt, barely able to contain his laughter, said, “Just to get you!”
