Courteney Cox is fully behind David Arquette’s latest career move – competing on “Dancing with the Stars.”
“She’s been really supportive and she’s been really sweet,” David told Access Hollywood of his ex, the star of ABC comedy, “Cougar Town.”
David said he expects Courteney will hit the ballroom sidelines to cheer on the actor as he competes against 11 other celebrities, including Nancy Grace, Kristin Cavallari and NBA star Ron Artest.
“She’ll be there, I’m sure,” he said. “She’s been very kind about it and very supportive.”
The “Scream” franchise star’s 7-year-old daughter, Coco, is also behind dad, to a point.
“She is, she may be a little nervous that I’m going to embarrass her,” he laughed. “I’m sure I will with some of the – I’ve already put outfits on for rehearsal.”
And David admitted he is even willing to cross a personal line to look picture perfect in the ballroom.
“I’m not a big fan of orange as a skin tone, but hopefully, I’ll be able to sit out in the sun a little,” David said when asked if he’ll spray tan. “I do know that that’s part of this game, but you want to look the part and be a part of it so I’m willing to do whatever it takes to do my best.”
Ricki Lake has already suggested that David is a frontrunner, and David is hoping some coincidental numbers will bring him luck.
“I just heard it was Season 13, and my daughter was born on the 13th. A little cosmic beautifulness,” he said. “I’m really excited to be a part of this cast, and to having a partner whose gonna teach me all these amazing moves.”
The “Dancing” pro partners will be announced on Wednesday morning on “Good Morning America.” The new season will premiere on Monday, September 19, in a two-hour show, from 8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT.
The following night ABC will air “Dancing with the Stars: Meet the Cast,” which airs at 8 PM, followed at 9 PM by the first “DWTS” results show.

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.
