Courteney Cox's Birthday Post For Jennifer Aniston Just Made Me Do A Double Take

    Courteney posted the photo on Instagram to celebrate Jen's 51st birthday.

    It was Jennifer Aniston's 51st birthday yesterday, and as usual, she spent it in style, celebrating with a whole host of famous friends at LA's Sunset Tower hotel.

    Of course, everyone and their mother jumped at the chance to wish Jen a happy birthday, including pals Reese Witherspoon, Mariah Carey, and Gwyneth Paltrow.

    Seriously, her Instagram comments were flooded with celebs wishing her the best on her birthday.

    Of course, some of Jennifer's — ahem — friends decided to post their own photos celebrating her birthday.

    Lisa Kudrow posted this throwback photo of Jen alongside a sweet message and an acknowledgment that she is bad at cropping pictures for Instagram.

    And new-to-Instagram Matthew Perry also posted a throwback, with the simple caption: "Happy birthday, Jenny!!!"

    But I have to admit, when Courteney Cox's birthday tribute popped up on my feed, I literally did a double take and then spent at least a minute staring at the photo in confusion.

    Because, as it turns out, Courteney's Jennifer Aniston cosplay is actually spookily accurate.

    Consider me shook.
