We never understood the pairing of Courteney Cox and David Arquette. Sure, they did those Scream movies together, but his goofy demeanor and her more straight-laced persona seem to clash. So when rumors started to circulate that Courteney may have been having a fling with her Cougartown co-star Brian Van Holt, we weren’t shocked.

David and Courteney are also scheduled to work together again, on the upcoming Scream 4 movie, something that David seems excited about, if only for the opportunity to remind Courteney who her real leading man is:
