The actress, who played Monica on the NBC comedy for ten years, has revealed that she always kept hope alive that she would be nominated for her work on the popular series.
She told Emmy magazine: "My ego got really bruised. When everyone did but me, that doesn't feel good at all. There were certain years I thought, 'Maybe I have a shot', like the Monica-Chandler years. But I don't know how it happens and why. Maybe I wasn't ready."
The Cougar Town star also insisted that she doesn't like getting older.
She added: "One second ago, I was the youngest person on the set, and now I'm the oldest. I'm so old, my joints hurt when I keep my legs crossed a certain way for too long. I need glasses to see a movie, to see the computer and to read a book. I was like, really?"
