Courtney Cox and Jennifer Aniston, along with Friends cast mates Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer met with Andy Cohen recently and chatted ahead of the upcoming James Burrows tribute--the one that's been dubbed the "Friends Reunion Special."

Matthew Perry was the only one of the Friends cast unable to attend the preview or to appear in the special. He is in London where he is starring in The End of Longing.
Us Weekly reports Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, and Matt LeBlanc looked incredibly happy to all be sitting together on the same stage.
Andy Cohen, known for his blatant conversational style, didn't hold back when asking the former cast mates a variety of questions.
"Did you all sign contracts saying that you wouldn’t' sleep with each other?" he asked.
Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, and Matt LeBlanc remained silent, while Lisa Kudrow nudged David Schwimmer.
"David, say something!" she said.
Schwimmer, who plays Robert Kardashian in the FX miniseries The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, threw his hands up in mock surrender.
Andy Cohen didn't ask Courteney Cox and Matt LeBlanc if they had something they'd like to share. Rumors have the two romantically involved. Nothing has been confirmed, and it is likely nothing more than conjecture.

Despite Friends fans' longing, the special--which airs on February 21--isn't a reunion of the beloved cast mates, but a tribute to James Burrow, who directed several episodes of the long-running hit show.
In addition to Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, and most of the Friends cast, the special will also feature celebrities who starred in Frasier, Will & Grace, The Big Bang Theory, and Cheers--all shows with episodes either created or directed by James Burrows.
