Courteney Cox of 'Scream 4' likes 'doing things that don't ever end'
Courteney Cox, star of "Scream 4," the newest film in the horror franchise that sees her reprise her role as Gale Weathers-Riley, says she likes "doing things that don't ever end."
Cox, 46, is also known for playing Monica on the NBC sitcom "Friends," which ran between 1994 and 2004, and for her main role as on the ABC comedy series "Cougar Town," which debuted in 2009 and is still on the air.
"I like doing things that don't ever end," Cox told OnTheRedCarpet.com host Chris Balish. "'Friends' went on forever. I hope 'Cougar Town' does and for these 'Scream' movies to keep going would be great."
When asked if she would star in a fifth and sixth "Scream" film, Cox said: "I don't necessarily know if I'm surviving "4," but I think somebody should be doing "5" and "6."
In "Scream 4," which is set for release on Friday, April 15, Neve Campbell reprises her role as author Sidney Prescott, who is visited once again by the mysterious Ghostface Killer after 10 years.
"I think it'll do well," Cox said. "It mirrors the first one more than it does the second and third. The first one was really funny and scary and everything at once."
"Scream 4" also stars newcomers Kristen Bell, Emma Roberts, "Heroes" actress Hayden Panettiere, "Mad Men" and "Community" star Alison Brie, Adam Brody of "The O.C." and Rory Culkin as well as Cox's estranged husband, David Arquette, another original cast member.
She and the 39-year-old actor met on the set of the original 1996 "Scream" film and married in June 1999. They have a daughter, Coco, who is 6. Cox and Arquette announced in October 2010 they had agreed to a trial separation. In January, Arquette underwent treatment for alcohol addiction.
Some reports have said the two may have reconciled. Cox and Arquette recently appeared together at press events to promote "Scream 4."
Cox recently opened up about the separation in an interview with Harper's Bazaar.
Referring to his brief fling with a cocktail waitress, she said Arquette "did nothing that wasn't in the boundaries of what we set for our separation, so there's nothing to judge," adding: "I may not have known about it, but that's the only difference."
Arquette had appeared on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" in February and said that he would love to "work out" his marriage to Cox but wants her to be happy, even if it is not with him.Check out the trailer for "Scream 4", below.
