Bio

Courteney Cox is an American actress and former fashion model best known for her role as Monica Geller in the television sitcom Friends, from 1994-2004.

She also starred in Dirt (2007-2008) and Cougar Town, from 2009-2015.

Cox was seen in Disney's family comedy Bedtime Stories, opposite Adam Sandler.

In 2004 Cox and husband David Arquette established their own production company, Coquette. Projects have included Dirt, the interior design show for cable's WE (Women's Entertainment) Network entitled Mix It Up, the comedy Daisy Does America for TBS, and The Tripper, a horror film written and directed by Arquette.

Cox made her acting debut in 1984 on the daytime soap As the World Turns, and later that year was cast by Brian de Palma for Bruce Springsteen's video, Dancing in the Dark.

She landed her first well known work as an actress in 1987 when she was cast as the bright, perky girlfriend of Michael J. Fox on Family Ties.

Following the series, she appeared in several feature films, including the box-office success Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, opposite Jim Carrey.

Cox became a household name with the launch of the hit television series Friends. The show garnered Screen Actors Guild Award nominations as Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series from 1999-2004.

In 1996 Cox starred in Wes Craven's horror/comedy Scream, which grossed over $100-million at the box office. She went on to reprise her role two additional times for the Scream trilogy.

Additional film credits include 3000 Miles to Graceland, Mr. Destiny, Cocoon: The Return, Zoom, November, The Longest Yard and Barnyard.
