How Much Is Courteney Cox Worth?

Courteney Cox, who you may forever see as Monica Gellar — the mama bear of the six famous "Friends" — is worth more than you think. The talented actress — who's had a stunning transformation — made America fall in love with the bossy, beautiful overachiever through the span of a decade, with every marked milestone in Monica's life. And while Cox told People that the memories she has from the iconic show are "irreplaceable," there's a lot more to her career than "Friends," which came to an end in 2004.

The actress began her career in 1984 with a small part on the daytime soap, "As the World Turns," and from there Cox landed acting roles alongside well-known actors like Jim Carrey in "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" and Michael Cain in "Mr. Destiny" (via IMDb). But it wasn't until 1996 that Cox was truly noticed and applauded for her acting skills, when she played Gale Weathers in Wes Craven's box office hit "Scream." The smug, snarky character earned Cox an American Comedy Award nomination, and a recurring role in the three "Scream" sequels.
