Courteney Cox, who celebrates her 48th birthday today, still looks just as stunning as she used to in her 'Friends' days.

We know that she was originally offered the role of Rachel Green but opted for Monica Gellar in the show. CS brings you some more trivia on the actress:

>> Cox underwent laser eye surgery to correct her vision from 20/400

>> Cox was married on June 12, gave birth on June 13, and born on June 15. It is a special month for her.

>> Cox and husband David Arquette met at Scream director Wes Craven’s dinner party just before filming.
