Hollywood actress Jennifer Aniston still considers her former FRIENDS co-stars "family" - even though the group rarely has time to meet up.
The 40-year-old has remained good friends with Courteney Cox since the comedy series ended in 2004 and is godmother to her four-year-old daughter, Coco.
Aniston admits she doesn't have time to meet up with the other castmates - David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc and Lisa Kudrow - but still looks on them all as pals.
She says, "You have grand plans, like 'We'll have dinner once a month.' And then, life happens; times change. It leaves me feeling sort of melancholy but, you know, something like that will always be there.
"We were as close as a family could ever be during those 10 years. They will always be my family, whether we are in the same room and talking regularly or not. We grew up together."
