Courteney Cox reveals she was hurt being the only ‘Friends’ star not nominated for an Emmy

For Courtney Cox, who never dreamed of becoming an actress as a child, it all started when director Brian De Palma had gotten the gig of producing and directing Bruce Springsteen’s music video to the smash hit “Dancing In The Dark” which she got to be part of.

The video, which was heavily played on MTV, was filmed during Springsteen’s concert at the St. Paul Civic Center in Minnesota on June 29, 1984, and Cox got the role of an adoring fan in the front row. Not being aware that she was a “fake fan,” “The Boss” invited her on stage where the two danced side by side.
