Talent tends to run in the family and the entertainment industry is a small world, which means many of your favorite Hollywood celebrities could actually be related.
Ahead of the 'Friends' reunion in May of 2021, researchers at the online genealogy website MyHeritage discovered that co-stars Courteney Cox and Matthew Perry are actually related. Cox and Perry played Monica and Chandler, one of the most long-lasting couples in 'Friends.' Luckily their connection is very distant, so we don't have to feel icky about all the times they kissed on the show! They are 11th cousins and can trace back their joint ancestry to an English couple from the 1600s.
