Added new pictures of Courteney filming Cougar Town with Busy Phillips in the gallery.
David Arquette’s & Courteney Cox’s seven-year-old daughter has been bullied.
The 39-year-old actor says he and estranged wife Courteney Cox have tried to tell Coco that she is “special” in order to combat the negativity she has received from some of her peers.
He said: “Well you know she has been bullied, people have hurt her feelings and you just have to tell her and tell these kids [who have been bullied] that they’re special, that they have a special gift that nobody else has, that they have a light inside of them that can be positive. You can choose to accept this negativity that’s coming your way or you can rise above it and be the best person you can be.”
David believes one of the key factors in solving problems of children being bullied is to make others aware of the situation and bringing it into the open.
He told America’s OK! magazine: “Part of bullying is people not standing up, not doing anything so its really about making the teacher aware about it, bringing it out into the open and you know, a lot of times this stuff lives in the dark.”
Though David and Courteney have been separated for 10 months, he insists he and Courteney get along better than ever.
He added: “We talk quite a bit and we’re really open and we’re really communicative. Coco is really open too and she asks us questions. We all communicate much better now than ever before.”
Courteney Cox plays a woman in her forties who’s taking on new life challenges on ABC’s Cougar Town and now the actress is taking a page out of her character’s book.
An ABC spokesperson confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that the actress “is currently scheduled to direct an upcoming episode” of the sitcom during Season 3, as first reported by TVGuide.com.
This would be the 47 year old’s first time directing for television. Previously, Cox directed a short film called The Monday Before Thanksgiving in 2008, which she also appeared in, starring Laura Dern.
Cox plays Jules on the ABC sitcom and she serves as an executive producer. The series is set to return in the midseason. In the meantime, she’ll be guest starring on former Friends cast mate Lisa Kudrow’s Showtime series, Web Therapy, next month.
While moving the Dirt season one stuff into the new gallery, I’ve noticed that captures of two episodes where missing. So I’ve added them. I will also add Scream 4 captures in a few minutes.
