The VERY awkward moment when ex-boyfriends Courteney Cox and David Arquette are asked if they could work together on the new Scream movie: “Yeah…it’s awesome.”
David Arquette gave an awkward response when asked if he would work with ex-wife Courteney Cox in the new Scream movie.
The couple appeared alongside lead actor Neve Campbell on Channel 10’s The Project on Tuesday, with presenter Hamish Macdonald asking the exes how it felt to reprise their roles of Dewey Riley and reporter Gale Weathers after their 2010 split.
“Courteney, David, these movies are so self-centered, it’s quite amazing to see the two of you on screen together and talking about a past relationship,” Hamish said.
Unpleasant! Project host Hamish Macdonald was visibly uncomfortable on Tuesday after David Arquette gave an awkward response to his question about working with ex-wife Courteney Cox on the new Scream film
“Do you feel like you’re enjoying that selfish side of it all, too?”
Courteney, 57, politely replied: “It’s really fun to play together if we’ve done it before. I mean by Scream, of course, this is our fifth time now, but we’ve also played before. It’s really fun.’
But it was David’s response that led to a rather awkward on-air moment, as he responded, “Yeah, it’s great…”
Hamish was visibly uncomfortable with the answer, leading to a second of silence as he continued, “Um…now, if in real life you…”

But the frosty reception was soon thawed as David, 50, Courteney and Neve all burst out laughing at how the reply sounded.
“Sorry,” Courteney laughed, while Hamish joked, “That sounded very sincere!”
After a hysterical laugh, David added, “It’s really good!” while Courteney explained, “There’s a delay, so when you said it…”
‘It sounded like nobody believed you!’ Neve, 48, giggled, to which the Friends actress said: “I didn’t believe him!”
“Do you want to try again and make us believe?” Hamish laughed, and David finally said, “That’s the best!”
