Courteney Cox


"One in six Americans struggles with the reality of hunger. The organization on the front lines of that issue is Feeding America--what an amazing organization for me to work with."

Courteney Cox gained overnight fame as she endeared herself to millions as the neurotic yet loveable Monica Gellar on NBC’s Emmy® Award winning comedy “Friends.” Cox currently stars as Jules Cobb in her Golden Globe® nominated role as a recently divorced mom in her forties facing the humorous challenges, pitfalls and rewards of life's next chapter in the comedy sitcom “Cougar Town.” “Cougar Town” was co-created by Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel and Courteney serves as the show’s executive producer. The show will move to TBS for its fourth season, which premieres this month. In addition to starring in and producing, Cox has directed several episodes of the show as well. 

In June of this year, Talhotblond premiered on Lifetime, marking Courteney’s first full-length project as a director. On the silver screen, Courteney most recently starred in the fourth installment of the Scream franchise, the film that marked the re-invention of the slasher film genre. In 2004, Courteney established her own production company, Coquette, with David Arquette.  Projects have included “Cougar Town,” “Dirt,” the interior design show for cable’s WE (Women’s Entertainment) Network called “Mix It Up,” the comedy “Daisy Does America” for TBS and The Tripper, a horror film written and directed by David Arquette, among others.

Courteney made her acting debut in 1984 on the daytime soap ''As the World Turns,'' and later that same year, she 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.” Cox became a household name with the launch of the hit television-series “Friends” portraying Monica Geller. In 2007, Courteney Cox created, starred in, and produced, FX’s comedy “Dirt.”  In 1996, Cox starred in Wes Craven's horror/comedy Scream and then went on to reprise her role two additional times for the trilogy.  Additional film credits include Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Bedtime Stories, 3000 Miles to Graceland, Mr. Destiny, Cocoon: The Return, Zoom, November, The Longest Yard and Barnyard.
