Witherspoon's co-star Ice Cube, who played Witherspoon's son in all the Friday films, was the hardest hit by his passing.

On Tuesday (January 14), Cube commemorated his late friend — or "Pops" as he was known on the screen — in Next Friday, the 20-year anniversary.

"20 years from Next Friday," he captioned a photo of Witherspoon on the nature. "I miss you Pops."
