The actress was on a flight with her former co-star, Jennifer Aniston, when something malfunctioned, according to Us Weekly. Cox explained:
“I sent a little text to Coco, [saying], ‘I love you.’ I didn’t say why. And to [boyfriend] Johnny [McDaid] … I told him everything that was going on and I FaceTimed him after.”
