Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston have been through their share of highs and lows both in and out of the spotlight. But it’s safe to say that the two actresses had never been through as scary of an experience than the one they went through during a recent flight to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for Aniston’s birthday party.

“I’m not afraid of flying at all,” Cox recently said in an interview with Extra. “My dad was a pilot, but I was really scared, because when we were taking off, we heard this really loud bang and I was like, ‘Oh, that sounds like we should probably check that tire. There was no tire at all, there was no wheel. Luckily, there are two wheels on each side and two in the front. I have to say, we were in the air for four hours, burning off fuel and just thought of what it is going to be like when we land.”
Fortunately, the plane landed safely, but during the ordeal, Cox was scared enough to send a very special message to her daughter Coco.
“I sent a little text to Coco, ‘I love you,’” she recalled. “I didn’t say why, and to Johnny [McDaid (Cox’s boyfriend)]. I told him everything that was going on and I FaceTimed him after.”
Following the ordeal, the two longtime friends were able to put the scary experience behind them and enjoy Aniston’s birthday.
Aniston’s A-list friends in attendance included, Gwyneth Paltrow, Lisa Kudrow, John Mayer, Courteney Cox, Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, George and Amal Clooney, Reese Witherspoon, Robert Downey Jr., Ellen DeGeneres, Barbra Streisand, Keith Richards, Kate Hudson, Laura Dern, Demi Moore and Jennifer’s ex-husband, Brad Pitt.
“A bunch of us got her a pottery wheel and lessons, even though she’s a great artist, and a table, a big beautiful antique table,” Cox said.
