COURTENEY COX ARQUETTE
June 15, 1964
Courteney is the youngest in a family of one brother and two sisters. Courteney's parents divorced when she was ten, and she stayed with her mother who later remarried. Upon graduation from Mountain Brook High School, Courteney went on to study architecture at Mount Vernon College in Washington.
During summer holidays, Courteney would find herself in New York where she eventually signed with the Ford Agency as a model which segued into work in commercials for such companies as Maybelline, and Noxzema. It was only natural for her career to move into television and feature films, and she made her television debut in 1984 on the daytime soap As the World Turns. Later that year she was cast in Bruce Springsteen's video Dancing in the Dark. Fans remember it was Courteney who The Boss pulled onto the stage to dance with.
Her first well known work came in 1987 when she got the role as Michael J. Fox's girlfriend on the hit TV series, Family Ties. Her feature film debut came with Maters Of The Universe, but she really hit the scene when she played opposite Jim Carrey in Ace Venture: Pet Detective, in 1994. She followed this success with the mega hit TV series, Friends.
The result of becoming a household name, led her to nabbing a part in the boxoffice bonanza Scream, as well its two sequels, Scream 2, and Scream 3.
On June 12, 1999, Courteney married fellow thespian, David Arquette.
