Courteney Cox: ‘Cougar Town’ Name Change Could Happen

Wednesday, Jun 2, 2010

Courteney Cox told Access Hollywood that there’s a possibility that the rumored “Cougar Town” name could actually change happen – and for now, the future of the show’s title is still up in the air.

“We’ve been talking about it for a long time,” Courteney told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson on Tuesday at the Women In Film 2010 Crystal + Lucy Awards in Century City, Calif. “I don’t know if it’s going to happen or not. I don’t know… I honestly don’t know.”

The 45-year-old actress said there’s a lot more to the ABC series than just middle-aged women prowling for younger men.

“This show is not just for women. It’s for women and men. It’s funny. It’s crazy. It’s kooky and you know it’s heartfelt and it’s all of that. So… we don’t people to get misled by the word ‘Cougar Town.’” Courteney explained. “It’s just about trying to get what the real show is about and we may do it or we may not.”

Courteney explained that if the show does change its name, she still wants her character, Julie Cobb, to have the opportunity to pounce on fresh meat.

“If I don’t work out with the neighbor, Grayson, I still want to go out with some younger men,” she said of her character’s current relationship on the show with actor Josh Hopkins. “So, I don’t know what’s going to happen. I mean this is my shot, just don’t stray to far away from ‘Cougar Town.’”
