Lisa Kudrow Said Matthew Perry Gifted Her an Iconic Piece of the Friends Set

The cast had a hilarious inside joke about the memento.

Lisa Kudrow owns one of the most memorable pieces from the Friends set. In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday, the actress, who played Phoebe on the hit sitcom, admitted that Matthew Perry gave her the cookie jar from Monica (Courteney Cox) and Rachel (Jennifer Aniston)'s apartment.

"We're shooting a scene, years before we were finished, and my line was, "Oh! I better get going," like, "Oh! I'm late, I better get going," Kudrow explained. She went on to say that she didn't have a watch on with her costume, and a hilarious moment ensued. "As the words were coming out, I went, 'Oh, good, there's a clock.' I gestured to that, and said, 'Oh! Look at the time. I gotta get going.' And during shooting, Matthew said, 'Did you look at the cookie jar and say look at the time?'"

Eventually, when the show ended in 2004, Kudrow said Perry gave her the clock as a gift. "I think the first thing I asked was, "This was so nice - did you get permission? I mean, my car used to get searched every night when I left."

This week, HBO Max launched with all of the past episodes of Friends. The network also purchased a reunion special for $425 million, that is set to film at the end of the summer. Outside of the franchise that made her famous, Kudrow stars in Space Force alongside Steve Carell which airs on Netflix May 29.
