Courteney Cox Covers 'Emmy' Issue #4
Here’s what the 46-year-old Scream 4 actress had to share:
On being the only Friends cast member not to receive an Emmy nomination: “I tell you, my ego got really bruised. When everyone did but me, that doesn’t feel good at all. There were certain years I thought, ‘Maybe I have a shot,’ like the Monica-Chandler years. But I don’t know how it happens and why or how. Maybe I wasn’t ready.”
On not pursuing big-screen romcoms like BFF Jennifer Aniston: “I always talked myself out of going in to read. I don’t know if I had that much confidence. [Today] I’m much more content. I was always thinking that I needed to do something else, be more mysterious. I felt the need to prove myself. Now I’m not going to be the ingenue anymore. I’m probably not going to do a lot of the things that I wish I had done, but now I don’t care.”
On her initial attraction to hubby David Arquette: “He was pretty dangerous, like a bad boy. I was so young. We’re so different that each year I can’t believe how different we are. The one thing that’s similar is that we have a similar sense of humor. Well, no, that’s not true. We do not have a similar sense of humor, but his is so broad that I fit in part of it. He’s a unique human being, and a real character.”
