Courteney Cox became a household name for her role as Monica Geller on the NBC sitcom "Friends." The critically-acclaimed show ended in 2004, and Cox went on to take on more exciting projects.

Most notably, Cox starred in the FX drama series "Dirt," and in the ABC/TBS sitcom "Cougar Town," which ran from 2009 to 2015. This year, she and her "Friends" co-stars delighted fans with their reunion.

Besides appearing on TV shows, Cox is also known for her humor on social media. Recently, she shared her unusual experience on the set of a new project she was working on. In the video, she said:

"So I'm afraid of heights, and I just walked into the set. I was told I was going 15 feet in the air. It was 50 feet."

After explaining her situation, the Screen Actors Guild Award winner showed her harness, of which she seemed pessimistic. She wore a floral dress identical to that of her lookalike stunt woman.

She then showed footage of herself and the stunt woman standing on a platform as it was lifted up. Fear was visible in Cox's face, but like a true actor, she pulled off the scene brilliantly, with the help of the stunt woman.

Cox has reportedly been filming her new horror-comedy series "Shining Vale" for Starz since July.

Fans and celebrities alike were quick to share their thoughts in the comments section. Acclaimed singer Brandi Carlile quipped: "Payback for what you made me do in the Right On Time video."
