It seemed like a match made in TV heaven, but now, it looks to be finished: Courtney Cox and David Arquette are splitting up. The two Scream co-stars have been married 11 years, but according to David Arqeutte, Courtney grew tired of having to be like a mother to him.
“She didn’t want to tell me, ‘Don’t do that.’ She didn’t want to nag me anymore,” David said, and noted that she found his often outlandish behavior “charming” when they first met. “But that stuff starts getting old.”
According to David, the filming of Scream 4 was a bit awkward, with Courtney growing distant and desiring no intimacy. David noted that he then told Courtney that if she wasn’t going to mother him, he was just going to be himself, and partied with younger cast members. Still, the split is a difficult one.
“I’ve been begging Courteney to get back with me,” David said. “It breaks my heart.”
David said that he still wants to work things out, but that it will require both he and Courtney figuring out who they are, and who they want to be with.
“We’re trying to get real with each other, real with ourselves,” he explained. “I love her with all my heart and she loves me with all her heart.”
