If fate’s hands had veered in just a slightly different direction, Courteney Cox could have been a swimming pool saleswoman instead of the famous actress she is today.
Cox, who is the cover girl for the August Issue of In Style, told the magazine that’s the career path her father suggested she follow right before she got her breakthrough role on Friends and was almost broke.
“You have always been a great salesman. I think it’s time you come home and sell swimming pools,” he told her.
Fortunately, for us the star of Cougar Town didn’t take that advice. She said she’d likely never quit acting, but if she did she has other interests.
“I wanted to be an architect, and I wish I knew more about landscaping. I think I’d be a good therapist too.”
I bet she’d be a great therapist! I can absolutely imagine spilling all my troubles to her, can’t you?
I was also thrilled to hear her admit to using Botox. It’s nice to know that even she of the perfect porcelain skin needs a little help.
“Aging gracefully is one thing, but trying to slow it down is another. Sometimes I use Botox. Compared to most, I use it very sparingly,” she told In Style. “One time I did too much, though. I feel weird if I can’t move my face, and that one time I overdid it, I felt trapped in my own skin.”
What career do you most see Courteney Cox in if she wasn’t an actress?
