Every true fan of the popular show "Friends" knows the difference between clean and "Monica clean." We all love Monica Geller's character and even her obsession with cleanliness. But who knew Courtney Cox also shared this obsession with Monica?

Roughly a month after she received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame during a February 27 ceremony, the 58-year-old revisited the location on March 22, to clean her star and that of her close friends, reports PEOPLE.

Cox actress shared an Instagram reel, with Dolly Parton's "9 to 5" playing in the background. In the video, she is seen cleaning her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and asking people to not step on the sidewalk tributes. "Literally right on the star, you can go around," she tells a passerby as she cleans the star in a manner reminiscent of her "Friends" character, Monica Geller. 

"Someone's gotta do it," Cox captioned the reel. In addition to cleaning her own star with Homecourt cleaning products, she also took care of the stars of her close friends, Laura Dern, Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon.

In turn, these friends came to the comments section of her video and could not thank her enough. Witherspoon, 47, thanked Cox for her efforts in keeping the stars clean, writing: "Thanks for keeping us clean, Court!!" Another friend of Cox's, Lisa Kudrow, wrote, "Only the best thing ever." Demi Moore also left a comment on the clip, which reads "love," while Hulu's official Instagram handle wrote: "Making Monica proud."

Meanwhile, comedian David Spade wrote with mock anger about Cox forgetting to clean his star: "Do mine! Wtf!" Fans were also quick to come to the comments section with one fan writing, "Not just clean, Monica clean!" Another joked: "I'm Monica, I wash my star 17 times a day. Even if people are on it!"

Cox received her star in a special ceremony attended by her friends and her family. Her "Friends" co-stars and real-life friends, Kudrow, 59, and Aniston, 54, gave a joint speech on the day, saying that they were "honored" to be her "co-workers, friends, family [and] sisters."

"To be friends with Courteney is to be family with Courteney," Aniston said. "She is responsible for all of that. From the beginning of when we met her, she was immediately inclusive, warm, loving and interested in everything about you."


Kudrow added that they were "deeply, deeply proud to know" Cox, who she said is the "definition of a truly beautiful, talented and what's most important, a truly good and decent human being."

Aniston concluded the tribute to Cox by saying, "Watching you on screen and just in life in general, you're one of the funniest human beings on the planet Earth. Nothing makes me happier than a Courteney joke and always making us smile and thank you for enriching our lives with your work. We are so proud of you, we love you, you're sisters from another mister and we love you."


Cox said in her own speech,  "I love you all so much and it's so nice that you came out and showed up for me in public the way you do so often in private." That's of course one of the reasons we love the show "Friends" so much. From Monica's love for cleanliness to the endearing female friendships on the show, a lot of it was real!
