Courteney Cox's favourite Friends episode

Courteney Cox revealed that her favourite episode from Friends is titled 'The One with All the Thanksgivings', which is the eighth episode of the fifth season. In this Thanksgiving special episode, Monica Geller's character could be seen as an overweight young girl. In the interview, Courteney Cox described her character as 'Overweight Monica' and expressed that she felt free while paying that part. Assuming that the actor wore a bodysuit to look overweight on-screen, Courteney Cox revealed that she could just sit up and dance during the takes and have no problem with it at all.

Her obsession with 'Overweight Monica' can be seen on her Instagram also as she has her display picture of the character. But, unfortunately, the character has not aged well amidst fans. Years later the episode aired on television, fans reportedly pointed out that 'Overweight Monica's concept was actually Fatphobic and demeaned overweight people. But despite the backlash, Courteney Cox has evidently not stopped loving the episode.
