Courteney Cox And David Arquette Split: Was Scream 4 To Blame?

by | 12th, October 2010

COURTENEY Cox and David Arquette have split up. Before the inevitable days out in the tabloids with Jennifer Aniston, we ask: was Scream 4 a sequel too far? Before  Our man in LA reports:

Did that which brought them together also tear them apart?

Hollywood’s gotta be asking itself that question about Courteney Cox and David Arquette, in the wake of their split.

The pair first coupled during production of the film “Scream,” when Cox was cast as bitchy broadcaster Gayle Weathers with Arquette in the role of ditzy Deputy Dewey Riley.

The announcement of their separation comes just as production wraps on “Scream 4,” in which Cox and Arquette’s characters are now man and wife.

Confusing, non?

They released a statement Monday saying:

“We have agreed to a trial separation that dates back for some time. The reason for this separation is to better understand ourselves and the qualities we need in a partner and for our marriage.  We remain best friends and responsible parents to our daughter and we still love each other deeply.”

The “best friends” part will be put to the test when the unequally successful pair start talking divorce settlement.

Here’s an interesting clip.  It’s an interview Arquette gave on the red carpet of an L.A. film festival just this past weekend. – RR
