Courteney Cox was the last person to leave Jennifer Aniston’s wedding last weekend, partying it up with her best Friend until about 3:00 a.m. at her Bel Air home, People is reporting.
The 51-year-old Cox served as maid of honor for Aniston as she tied the knot with Justin Theroux, and so deep is Courteney’s affection for her Friends co-star that she partied until the wee hours of the morning, an unidentified source confirms.
“The last guest to leave was Courteney. She left right after Ellen DeGeneres and Jimmy Kimmel. She left around 3 a.m. At 2 a.m. they still had the music pretty loud.”
It seems that the wedding was a surprise to the few dozen guests who were invited – Jennifer had, apparently, played it off as a birthday party for Justin, who turns 44 in a few days, according to News OXY. Only Courtney Cox was in on the real reason for the party.
Another source who was at the wedding describes it as “low-key.”
“It was done completely on the sly. It was their closest friends and very simple and intimate. There were lots of laughs as well as tears and the mood was light.”
As a wedding gift, Courteney hired Sia to perform for the guests.
Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston co-starred on Friends between 1994 and 2004, and off-screen the two have been BFF’s since then. Aniston even serves as godmother to Courteney’s 11-year-old daughter, Coco.
In a 2014 interview with More magazine, Jennifer spoke about her friendship with Courteney.
“There’s absolutely no judgment in Court[eney]. You’ll never feel scolded. She’s extremely fair, ridiculously loyal and fiercely loving. I’ve slept in her guest bedroom a lot. Without giving away too much of my private stuff, all I can say is she’s been there for me through thick and thin.”
Fellow Friend Lisa Kudrow also spoke highly of having Courteney Cox as a friend in real life.
“There’s no agenda. There’s no guile. There’s no game. You can trust her completely and fully. Whether I see Courteney every week or once a year, it doesn’t matter. I know who she is, and I know where I stand.”
For her part, Courteney Cox insisted at the time that she’s always the same person she’s been since high school.
“You know what’s funny?. I don’t think I have [changed]. I’ve always had a through-line of who I am and what’s important to me: honesty and integrity. Friends say, ‘Oh, I was so different back in high school’ or ‘I was so different in college.’ I think I’ve always been the same. Different circumstances, different opportunities, but I’m not different. What was important to me at 20 is what’s important to me now.”
