Courteney Cox has a secret to tell. All those years when Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow were racking up the Emmy nominations for Friends, and Cox was left out? Yeah, that was a little painful.
"The only time I was like, 'Whoa!' was [in 2001, when Kudrow and Aniston] were both nominated and not me. That's when it's like, 'I have a lesson to learn here,' " Cox, 46, tells TVLine. "I had a hard time not taking it personally when it was both Lisa and Jennifer at the same time … Both girls and not me? It hurt. I'm very sensitive, though."
In all, Kudrow earned six nominations for Friends, Aniston five. They both won once.
Meanwhile, Cox, who now stars on Cougar Town, will have another shot at exorcising those old demons when the 2011 Emmy nominations are announced July 14.

Those seeking a body like Jennifer Aniston's should perhaps take a nutrition lesson from Courteney Cox. The Cougar Town star says that for an entire decade she took meal cues from her Friends bestie.
"Jennifer and Lisa [Kudrow] and I ate lunch together every single day for 10 years," Cox, 45, tells the Los Angeles Times. "We always had the same thing – a Cobb salad. But it wasn't really a Cobb salad. It was a Cobb salad that Jennifer doctored up with turkey bacon and garbanzo beans and I don't know what. She has a way with food, which really helps."

SURVEYED: Matthew Perry's character of Chandler Bing on "Friends" is the overwhelming choice when it comes to women looking for a man they'd most want to date or marry, according to a poll conducted by Yahoo! Personals, using the soon-to-exit sitcom as a guide to potential friend and lover role models. Jennifer Aniston's Rachel Green was the males' choice for a mate, while an overwhelming 75 percent of the 1,200 singles surveyed responded that the TV characters have become their own friends over the past 10 years. And, yes: 40 percent of the men admitted that they've used Matt LeBlanc's pickup line as Joey, "How you doin'?"
