A Brief Detail about the” Scene”

“Co-opted” gives him too much credit. It was petulant behavior. Well, I guess you’re right. It co-opted it for me emotionally, because all of a sudden then my focus went to him,” she tells the New Yorker.
“In the scene, I’m supposed to lick Joey’s fingers, because they’re the hands of a genius, and I want to devour them, and I’m a nut. He was cute—he was, like, “I’ve washed my hands and they’re all clean.” I was, like, “I had a mint!” Agassi was sitting with the audience on that day.
Andre was in the audience supporting me, and he stormed out. He said, “Everybody’s making fun of me. You made a fool of me by that behavior.” I’m, like, “It’s comedy! What is the matter with you?” Little did I know, he was deep into the world of crystal meth at that point, which certainly played a part in his irrational behavior.
It was later revealed in his thrilling autobiography that he had dabbled in meth use a year after that infamous “Friends” episode aired.

It turns out that the tennis pro had been battling a devastating addiction to crystal meth, a secret he eventually divulged in his explosive 2009 autobiography, Open.
