Courteney Cox Interview on Cougar Town and Scream 4 From 2011 Winter TCA 2011-01-12 19:07:46

Courteney Cox on Why Cougar Town Is Her Saving Grace and Being Back Into Scream Mode

Even though I'm at the Winter TCA to report back to you on all the new midseason TV, I do have some news about your current favorite shows. Today I got to visit the set of Cougar Town (more on that later!), and star Courteney Cox sat down with reporters to talk about her quirky series, how it's helped her at this time in her life, how she's different from her Scream 4 costars, and her old Friends costar Matt LeBlanc's new series Episodes.

Has the show been a good escape for difficult times in your life?
Courteney Cox: Oh yeah. Thank God for the show. There have been times that Bill has said, "Do you need to take a break?" And [I say] "Are you kidding?" This is my saving grace.

Is there any chance Sheryl Crow will come back?
CC: We had fun with her! And she had fun, she said. She really liked it. I don't know, maybe!

How was it stepping back into the Scream franchise?
CC: That character is really over the top, and I just realized that was 10 years ago; all of the actors on the set, the new group, they're very subdued, kind of quiet. And I stick out like a sore thumb; I was like "Gail Weathers is back!" Like, are they going to talk any louder at all? They are very cool, and I'm older, and not as cool. But I stepped into my character; we'll see what happens. Dewey was Dewey! But then, you know, people have changed. People are cooler than me.

Is it true that there will be more Scream films after this one?
CC: There is going to be a Scream 4, 5, and 6. [But] I don't know anything.

To find out what Cox said about her Friends days and Matt LeBlanc's new series, just


Have you seen Episodes yet?
CC: No! I can't wait to see it.

Is there anything you wish you had done differently when you were on Friends?
CC: The one thing that I wished I hadn't been back in those days, which I've changed, is [that] I'm not a competitive person at all, but I am a comparative person. And I don't even want to be that. I don't want to compare anymore. There's a lot of stuff that can mess with your ego, being on a show with six people in an ensemble like that . . . It's hard. It was a lot of learning for me. I wish I hadn't ever spent time comparing.

How do you think you'll feel when people start saying that they grew up watching you?
CC: I think they already have! I think it's alright, I guess. I mean, I have a few more years before I feel bad.
