As you might already know, Courteney Cox's first big break in the entertainment industry took place in 1984, when she was featured in the music video for Bruce Springsteen's hit song “Dancing in the Dark.” In the video, Cox gets pulled on stage at the St. Paul Civic Center and dances with Springsteen as he finishes singing the anthem. Soon after this clip premiered, Cox started landing small television roles before eventually nabbing the part of Monica Geller on Friends in 1994.
But as it turns out, the actress's love of rock 'n' roll goes even further back than that Springsteen video.
Long before that clip was ever released, Cox had a run-in with a different famous musician: Sting. When she was only a teenager, Cox posed for a few photos with the lead singer of The Police.
She first unearthed one of these pics a couple years ago, when she said, “I was the inspiration for this song,” referring to the band's 1980s hit “Don’t Stand So Close To Me.” She then joked, “Sting’s hair was the inspiration for Dumb And Dumber.”
