Courteney Cox has shared a snap showing her teenage daughter Coco wearing one of her red carpet dresses 21 years later.
The Friends star, who shares the 14-year-old with ex-husband David Arquette, posted the two side-by-side photos of herself and Coco in the purple embroidered dress with velvet trim straps.
“I’m not one to hold onto things but this was a damn good purchase!” Courteney captioned the Instagram photo. “21 years later…”
The 54-year-old first wore the dress at the premiere of the movie Snake Eyes in 1998, which she attended with David. The couple married in 1999, welcomed Coco in 2004, and began divorce proceedings in 2012.
Lisa Kudrow, who is still close to her Friends co-star, was struck by the resemblance between Courteney and Coco, and commented on the picture, “Oh wow…”
Several fans pointed out that reusing a 21-year-old dress is very in line with the actress’ Friends character, Monica Geller.
“This is such a Monica thing to do,” one fan commented.
Last year, Courteney opened up about the challenges of raising a teenage daughter.
“I want her to tell me everything, and she doesn’t want to tell me anything,” she told People. “Exactly the opposite of the childhood I had… We bicker, let’s be honest, but we love each other. We laugh a lot, for sure.”
And she added that, in addition to patience, Coco has taught her “to not take things personally, because really it’s not about us. Whatever moods that she goes through where things happen, I’m the safest place to be able to take it out on. It’s never about me, unless it’s actually about me.”
