‘Friends’ star Courteney Cox has never shied away about telling her life’s tales. The actress is a new member of the Instagram family and, she goes all out to give her fans a sneak peek into her life. Recently, the actress revealed what she did before securing a career in the acting business.
Courteney Cox revealed: “(My dad) always thought I was a good salesman and that I should probably move back to Alabama and sell swimming pools. I did work in a swimming pool store, and I was one hell of a salesman. I tested a lot of pool water.” Cox also mentioned that, despite owning a pool now, she can’t use any of the old water testing skills she knows. She added: “I have a saltwater pool now, so I don’t know how to test that.”
The ‘Shining Vale’ star also emphasised the importance of her father’s influence in her life. Courteney Cox told Willie Geist on his ‘Sunday Sitdown’ podcast: “My dad’s not alive, but I think (winning an award) is something he would be proud of. … I remember the first time I had a billboard on Sunset, it was for ‘Dirt,’ and I really wanted my dad to see that because he would have been proud.”
Despite being most well-known for her role in ‘Friends,’ Courteney Cox credits her appearance in Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Dancing in the Dark’ music video as the moment that sparked her career. She said: “The Bruce Springsteen video was the thing for sure. I was on screen for 24 seconds, but who doesn’t love Bruce Springsteen, and who doesn’t love that song, ‘Dancing in the Dark’? I just went onstage, and people really wanted to know, ‘What’s Bruce really like?’ And I was like ‘okay, I’ll tell you.’ I didn’t really know, he’s just a great guy, but that was like a lead-in to getting in the door.”
