Kaley Cuoco physically broke down into tears just two minutes into the “Friends” reunion special as she rocked her favorite Amazon nightie. The 35-year-old “Big Bang Theory” alum had made headlines ahead of the HBO Max special for being one of the first celebrities to comment on the announcement Instagram posts – “I can think about nothing else,” she’d replied as 52-year-old Jennifer Aniston shared her sneak peek trailer on May 13. Fast-forward to the actual airing, and Kaley was in tears. Check it out below.
Scroll for the video. Kaley, herself a major sitcom star, had double-replied to Aniston back in May, with her “Can’t breathe” seeming to tease what was to come.
The May 27-aired reunion, bringing together Aniston with co-stars Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry, and Matt LeBlanc, was one Kaley watched at home. She shared footage of her reactions to her Instagram stories last night, announcing that it was “2 MINS INTO THE FRIENDS REUNION SHOW @HBOMAX.” See it below.
Kaley filmed her TV, where Schwimmer (known for playing Ross Geller), was seen emotionally stepping back onto the set and taking a moment to have his return sink in. Likely filmed by 2018-married husband Karl Cook, Kaley was seen snuggled up in a chair, wearing no makeup, and comfy in a look that made 2020 headlines – it was Kaley and her “awesome” $26 unicorn nightie.
Fighting back tears and already in plenty, Kaley sobbed: “I don’t think I can watch this.. it just started.”
Kaley has links to “Friends” star Aniston, and not just with both earning $1 million per episode on their respective sitcoms. Last year, Kaley opened up about them both being on the set of ’90s movie “Pitch Perfect.”
“Little known fact this was one of the first ‘parts’ I was ever cast in as a kid.. I was the last name in the credits (credited as ‘little girl’).. when I saw the movie , they had cut my one line, but all I remember is spending the entire day convincing myself to tell Jen how much I loved her. (Friends was my life at that point).

Kaley, big-time gushing over girl-next-door superstar Jen, added: “She was a gem to me then and a gem to me now (and to everyone she knows) funny to see this full circle moment. You never know where life will take you , or [whose] life you will touch along the way.”
In a separate interview, Kaley called Jen the “coolest chick around,” adding: “I love her so much, she’s also my style icon. I’m obsessed with her, because she’s always so effortless and cool.” If you missed Aniston’s latest spaghetti straps and slippers trip to the spa, just scroll.
