LOS ANGELES, Jan. 25 (UPI) -- Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox were among the Friends stars who reunited Sunday.

The actresses, age 46 and 51, respectively, reunited with co-stars Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc to honor TV director James Burrows, who helmed 15 episodes of the NBC sitcom.


The Big Bang Theory stars Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki were also present at the celebration and shared a photo with the Friends cast on Instagram. Galecki captioned the snapshot, "And then this happened. #TBBT #friends."

NBC's two-hour tribute to Burrows will air Feb. 21 at 9 p.m. ET. In addition to Friends and The Big Bang Theory, Burrows is known for his work on Cheers, Frasier and Will & Grace, whose casts also reassembled to film the TV special.

Noticeably missing from the Friends reunion was Matthew Perry, who was rehearsing for his forthcoming play, The End of Longing, in London. The 46-year-old actor recently told BBC Radio Two he believes the cast would be open to a reunion special.

"I think we would be open to doing something," he told host Chris Evans. "Some kind of maybe TV special. I don't know about a movie. It's kind of tough because [Friends] ended on such a high note that we don't want to ruin it. We'd want to be really careful."

"Sometimes when you do a reunion it's terrible and it sort of ruins the memory of the good show that you've done before," he explained. "We've talked about it a little bit over dinner. We like to get together for dinner and we have a good time together."
