Courtney Cox Remembers Auditioning For Bruce Springsteen Video

Before Courteney Cox achieved fame from starring in the Friends TV series and the Scream film franchise, the actress appeared as a starry eyed fan in Bruce Springsteen‘s video for his 1984 hit, “Dancing in the Dark.”

In the Brian De Palma- directed video, the legendary rocker brings up a young Cox to dance with him on stage – a moment the actress said she’ll never forget – during her Tuesday (March 2) interview with Howard Stern.

Reflecting on her involvement in the video, Cox stated:

“Bruce Springsteen is such an amazing… God, he’s so incredible. I love that song,” Cox replied when Stern asked if the song is still important to her after all this time. “I get a little embarrassed because I do feel like when I watch the video, when I see it…I mean, God. Did you see my dance? It was pathetic. I’m not a bad dancer, but that was horrible. I was so nervous.”

And recounting the video audition process, Courtney said that she arrived to the studio and was surrounded by professional dancers, which at the time she was not, saying: “I thought I was in the wrong place. I was like, ‘I don’t know what they’re doing but I can’t even bend my leg. This is it.’ I went into on Brian De Palma’s office. He put on the music and said, ‘Well, you dance.’ And I thought, ‘Right now? Here? In front of you? Just the two of us?’”

In retrospect, the celebrity actress’ awkwardness worked in her favor “I think that’s why I got it because I was like, Okay!’ I think that’s what they wanted, a fan that just couldn’t believe it,” the actress concluded.
