David Arquette: I tried to seduce Courteney Cox at Disney World
David Arquette said he recently tried to seduce wife Courteney Cox during a trip to Disney World, even though the two are separated.
Arquette, 39, and Cox, 46, who star in the new film "Scream 4," visited the Florida theme parks with their 10-year-old daughter Coco for two days during the first week of April, five months after they announced they had agreed to a trial separation. He later posted a small photo of the three on Twitter.
Arquette said on the X-rated "The Howard Stern Show" on Sirius XM satellite radio recently that he and Cox had separate hotel rooms at Disney World. He said he made his move as the two sat on a couch in one of them after spending a day at the parks. Coco was with her cousins at the time, he said.
"It was like we were eighth graders, seventh graders," Arquette said about his attempted seduction. "It was great. I didn't push her too hard. She's got better boundaries than I do.
Arquette said he and Cox were accompanied at Disney World by a guide who ushered them to rides.
Cox addressed the issue on "The Late Show with David Letterman," saying: "He did try to hit on me. He hit pretty hard and I said, you don't have the Fast Pass right now. Not for that ride!" (see video below)
In January, Arquette, 46, underwent treatment for alcohol addiction. He celebrated 100 days of sobriety on April 7 and said rehab was "very educational" and that he and Cox have a better relationship nowadays.
"If I could turn back everything, I wish were all still together and still a family. We're very incompatible," he said. "She wants calm and she wants to be happy. I'm a lot calmer but I'm not calm. I would like her to have her happiness if that's with another person or not."
Arquette is a frequent guest on Stern's show and is "interning" on it all week to promote "Scream 4," which comes out on Friday, April 15.
Arquette spoke about his love life on the program soon after he and Cox announced their trial separation and said the two had not been intimate in months. He later apologized for revealing too much.
In December, before he began rehab, he told Stern that he had been drinking a lot to mask his feelings. Arquette also addressed photos of him dancing with other women, saying: "I'm always having a good time," adding that one of them took one of the photos herself to try to set him up.
"I'm still a big knucklehead when it comes to women," Arquette said on Stern's show recently. "Sex is .. I enjoy it, but it's deeper than that. I'm definitely not a sex addict.
Cox and Arquette recently appeared together at press events to promote "Scream 4," including the recent Los Angeles premiere. Arquette and Cox met on the set of the first "Scream" film, which was released in 1996, and married in 1999.
In the new film, Neve Campbell reprises her role as author Sidney Prescott, who is visited once again by the mysterious Ghostface Killer after 10 years.
