This is interesting! MyHeritage.com reports that "Friends" stars Courteney Cox and Matthew Perry are distant cousins! Really distant, they are 11th cousins. "Friends: The Reunion," premieres on HBO Max today! See more here.
Courteney and Matthew are related through Courteney's mother's side of the family and Matthew's father's family. They are both also connected to Lady Gaga. What?
MyHeritage head researcher says, "We went into this line very deeply. We found a lot of records that support it, and we have confidence that they are related." He also said, “This is not such a surprise. It makes sense that when you go so many generations back, the chances of people being connected are higher.”
