‘We are an odd couple’

CORDIAL Courtney Cox and David Arquette.Actress Courteney Cox claims she and David Arquette are an odd couple, like their ‘Scream 4’ characters — Dewey Riley and Gale Weathers-Riley.

“I love her relationship with David’s character Dewey and the fact that they are together is so funny. He is so earnest and she is so ‘out-to-get-ahead’. It’s just a very odd pairing and so were we. Although we are not really odd, but we also are,” Cox said.

The 46-year-old actress also admits that working on the film helped to bring the pair closer again, because of director-and-producer Wes Craven, who is the couple’s “relationship mentor”.

“Wes was instrumental in us being together. He is kind of our mentor in relationships and in growing up. To get the chance to come back and do it again is just really fun,” she added.
