Did Courteney Cox give Prince Harry magic mushrooms? The actress speaks out
Courteney Cox comes clean about Prince Harry’s magic mushroom story in his memoir
Prince Harry, a self-professed fanatic of the American television sitcom ‘Friends’, related a moment when he found himself at a party in Courteney Cox’s home, where he helped himself to a box of chocolate magic mushrooms.
Now in a recent interview, Cox offers some clarity on the royal heir’s stay at her home, where she was also surprised to learn he ate magic mushrooms.
Cox says she did not hand out the mushrooms
“He did stay here for a couple of days — probably two or three. He’s a really nice person,” Cox said in an interview with Variety, where the actress spoke about her career following the recent unveiling of her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday.
“I haven’t read the book. I do want to hear it, because I’ve heard it’s really entertaining. But yes, it’s gotten back to me about it. I’m not saying there were mushrooms! I definitely wasn’t passing them out,” she added.
How did Prince Harry find the mushrooms?
According to the story in the memoir, Prince Harry was staying with a friend only referred to as Thomas, and his girlfriend, who lived in Los Angeles. After a night of heavy drinking with the couple’s friends, the group changed party locations to Cox’s home, who was friends with Thomas’ girlfriend. Cox was out of town but allowed her friend to stay at her home.
But when Cox was also there, Prince Harry found himself starstruck, referring to himself as “a Chandler” and wondering if he should tell Cox so.
Later at the party, Prince Harry met an unnamed actor who is presumed to be Will Arnett, since the only hint in the memoir is “Batman LEGO movie”. In 2017, Arnett voiced Batman in ‘The Lego Batman Movie’.
Thomas and Prince Harry were looking for drinks in Cox’s fridge when they saw a “huge box of black diamond mushroom chocolates”, when an unnamed “someone” told them to help themselves, which they did, washing the chocolate down with tequila.
Prince Harry then says he went to the washroom, where he hallucinated that the trash can and the toilet were talking to him.
