Courteney: I’m Not “Nuts” About Coco Wanting To Act

Tuesday, Jan 3, 2012

Looks like Courteney Cox’ seven-year-old daughter Coco with estranged husband David Arquette might be itching to follow in both mom and dad’s showbiz footsteps. But that doesn’t mean the Friends actress is ready to let her only child rush into the spotlight.

“She does like to perform,” Courteney says. “For Halloween, she dressed up as a dark angel in an outfit with black wings. I’m not nuts about that, but you’ve got to let her do her thing, right?”

The 47-year-old mom says she can’t deny that her kid’s got talent, though. “She does great accents. The other day she called up David and left a message pretending to be Kym Johnson, who was his dancing partner on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ and is from Australia. She said, ‘Allo Dye-vid, it’s Kym’. I can’t do accents myself but she does them really well.”

Courteney says she can see influences of both herself and David – who she met when both were filming Scream – in their daughter’s personality. “I see both of us in her. She’s very strong, feisty and independent, and she’s also creative and sensitive. She’s quite quirky and fun.”
