Courteney Cox admits there was a time when she “didn’t feel right” in Hollywood.
The 57-year-old actress said she was surprised to be back in the limelight with the Emmy-nominated Friends Reunion special, a new Scream film and her comedy horror series Shining Vale.
Appearing on the Just for Variety podcast, Cox suggested that her public profile dropped after the end of the sitcom Cougar Town, which ran from 2009 to 2015.
Recalling a recent visit to New York City, she said, “I left the hotel and there were the paparazzi and I was signing all these pictures of old stuff I did.
“How much can they get for that? I mean, a picture of me from the Masters of the Universe? It should be worth about 10 dollars.
“But nevertheless, I thought, ‘Oh, wow. How do I become famous again? ‘”
Cox, who played Monica Geller on the beloved sitcom Friends, added: “I would say, years after Cougar Town, (I’m) trying to figure out the right thing and I didn’t feel right at the time. .
“I am focusing on something else. I’m focusing on my relationship and not so much on the () business side of things. And, I think… out of sight, out of sight.
“And, yes, I think most of it is my fault. But I think, once I don’t get to drive, I think they might have forgotten about me for a while. ”

The actress shares 17-year-old daughter Coco with ex-husband David Arquette, also explaining the impact of therapy on her life.
“I was just talking to my partner about thinking about Coco and some of the things she was dealing with and it, and I relate to it,” she said.
“And it wasn’t until I turned 50 that I connected with the right therapist that really made me see things in a different way.
“And I thought, ‘God, I wish Coco didn’t have to wait until my age to really understand (things)’. So many changes and it takes a long time to say, ‘Ding, I get it.’
