Courteney Cox and David Arquette were asked about working together on new Scream movie: ‘Yeah…it’s great’
David Arquette has a strange reaction when asked about working with his ex-wife Courteney Cox in the new Scream movie.
The pair appeared with movie lead Neve Campbell on Channel 10’s The Project on Tuesday, with host Hamish McDonald asking X how it felt to reprise their roles of Davy Riley and reporter Gail Wears after their 2010 split.
Hamish said, “Courtney, David, these movies are so self-referential, it’s so amazing to see the two of you on screen together and talking about a past relationship.”
Odd! Project host Hamish McDonald was left uneasy Tuesday after David Arquette gave an awkward answer to his question about working with ex-wife Courteney Cox on the new Scream movie.
‘You get the impression that you guys enjoy all of this as well as that self-referential side?’
Courtney, 57, replied politely: ‘It’s really fun to act together, when we’ve done it before. I mean obviously Scream, it’s our fifth time now, but we’ve acted before. It’s really funny.’
But it was David’s reaction that resulted in quite the awkward on-air moment, as he replied: ‘Yeah, that’s great…’
Hamish was clearly uncomfortable with the response, which resulted in a second of silence and continued: ‘Erm… now if you guys are in real life…’

But the frosty reception soon melted away, as David, 50, Kourtney and Nev all laughed to realize what the reaction was like.
‘Sorry,’ Kourtney laughed, while Hamish joked: ‘It sounded so honest!’
After laughing frantically, David said: ‘It’s really cool!’ While Kourtney explained: ‘There’s a gap, so when you said it…’
‘It seemed that no one believed you!’ Nev, 48, laughed, to which the Friends actress said: ‘I couldn’t believe him!’
‘Would you like to try it one more time and make us believe in you?’ Hamish laughed, David finally said: ‘It’s the best!’
