Courteney Cox confesses she feels she sometimes doesn't get recognised enough for her iconic role as Monica Geller in 'Friends'

Courteney Cox doesn't think she gets recognised enough for her role in 'Friends'.

The 50-year-old actress starred as clean freak Monica Geller in the long running sitcom and has confessed that despite that being her most iconic role, she sometimes doesn't get recognised as much as she'd like.

Quizzed on whether people still approach her despite it being twenty years since it first aired, she told 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!': "Usually a lot, although sometimes not enough, strangely.

"I was just thinking about this the other day. I went to Turks and Caicos - just a beautiful island. I went there after I had gotten engaged [to Johnny McDaid] and it was for my birthday - that big birthday - and it was such a beautiful place.

"Johnny and I were there and we were having the best time, except after four days you're like, 'It's kind of really quiet here'. There's no wind chimes, there's no music. I mean, it is quiet. No crickets, nothing!"

The 'Cougar Town' star admits that after a few days of relaxation she decided to try to make some holiday pals but struggled until finally a 'Friends' fan recognised her and worked up the courage to approach her.

Courtney continued: "I could not make a friend! I tried so hard! It must have been my hair. No one wanted to talk to me, it was really bad.

"I was like, 'Gosh, Monica! 'Friends'! Nothing?'

"[On the last day] someone swam up to me and said, 'I just want to say I'm a big fan of 'Friends'. Can I get a picture?' I'm like, 'Are you kidding? A picture? We're eating lunch together!'"
