SCREAM 4

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 ABC's comedy "Cougar Town.” Currently in its second season, Cox also serves as the show's executive producer with David Arquette for their production company Coquette. "Cougar Town” was co-created by Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel and is produced by ABC Studios.

In 2009, Courteney made the natural segue from producing into directing for Glamour's Reel Moments Project. "Monday Before Thanksgiving” marks Cox's directorial debut and is a touching drama focusing on Laura Dern's character, a woman who has a chance encounter on a bus on the first anniversary of the loss of her mother which reinforces her faith in herself and the choices she's made. Glamour Reel Moments is a series of three short films based on real women's stories written by Glamour readers. The project benefits a women's program for FilmAid International, an organization that uses the power of film to promote health, strengthen communities and enrich the lives of women around the world.

Prior to "Cougar Town,” Cox created, starred in, and produced, FX's comedy "Dirt.” In it, Courteney portrayed the powerful, intelligent and ruthless editor-in-chief of Dirt Now magazine, Lucy Spiller. The show focused on the price one must pay for success in a world built upon unraveling the truth behind celebrity façades.

In 2004, Courteney and David Arquette established their production company, Coquette. Projects have included "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 most recently, THE TRIPPER, a horror film written and directed by David Arquette.

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.” 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” portraying Monica Geller. 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. The movie quickly grossed over $100 million at the box office, and won Cox rave reviews for her standout performance as the wickedly bitchy and smug TV reporter Gale Weathers. She went on to reprise her role in SCREAM 2 and SCREAM 3. Courteney's additional film credits include BEDTIME STORIES, 3000 MILES TO GRACELAND, MR. DESTINY, COCOON: THE RETURN, ZOOM, NOVEMBER, THE LONGEST YARD and BARNYARD.

In addition to her work in front, and behind the camera, Courteney is also the face of the Avon Fragrance, Spotlight.
