Avon calling Courteney Cox

Friday, Jun 5, 2009

Courteney Cox has always had that fresh, clean look. No wonder she was cast as Monica, the neat-freak member of the crew on Friends.

So it was high time the actress, 44, came out with her own fresh, clean fragrance with Avon, called Spotlight.

The Alabama native — who next appears as a recently divorced single mother in ABC’s comedy Cougar Town — knows about spotlights. Cox, who is married to Scream costar David Arquette, has been trolling Hollywood for more than 20 years, starting out as a flight attendant in As the World Turns in 1984.

Later that year, Cox did an unforgettable boogie with Bruce Springsteen in his Dancing in the Dark video.

Now like many of her peers ( Halle Berry, Scarlett Johansson, Keira Knightley), Cox is the face of a fragrance.

”I’ve been in the spotlight for much of my life — on TV, films and at the variety of events that go along with being an actress,” she tells The Miami Herald. “I like a scent that captures the thrill of being the center of attention and having all eyes on you.”

A scent can do that?

Perfumes ”can make you feel empowered and special,” she says, “and I think women need a little of that in their life!”

With all of mom’s frilly, nice smelling stuff around, daughter Coco, 4, is going girly.

”She’s snooping around a bit more,” Cox says, “but she hasn’t officially tested anything yet.”

How do you juggle all that you do?

”It’s tough,” she admits, but “I’m very fortunate that my job allows for me to have a team help me get ready for events and nights out, but on an ordinary day it’s much simpler. All it takes is a little lipstick, curling my lashes, mascara, blush and perfume.”
