David Arquette Hilariously Took The Blame For Courteney Cox's Hair In 'Scream 3'

I don't think there's a single person in this world who doesn't regret at least one of their past hairstyles.

Fortunately for most of us, we didn't have that hairstyle forever commemorated in a movie, unlike Courteney Cox.

Not every divorce has to be bitter. Courteney Cox and David Arquette are living proof of that.

We were sad to hear that Courteney and David had divorced after 14 years of marriage, but they've gone on to show that they still clearly love and respect each other.

You might remember that besides her iconic "Friends" role, Courtney appeared in another cult classic.

That's right — she also appeared in all four Scream films.

A true icon, I'm telling you.

Her hair in the movies, however, was less than iconic.


It's been nearly 20 years since Scream 3 came out, but nobody has forgotten this look.

People still love to bring it up, even to this day.

Can Courteney catch a break?

The answer is absolutely not.

It looks like David Arquette likes to spend his spare time brushing up on his meme game.

And he stumbled across the haircut that everyone loves to laugh at.

To literally everyone's surprise, he owned up to the look.

Apparently, he was the one who is behind all this, which explains a lot.

And after 19 years, we finally have the answer to the question that had been keeping us all up at night.

I still can't help but wonder why Courteney didn't pump the brakes the second that this hairstyle was suggested...

She even admitted to People Magazine that this wasn't a look to remember.

"I should have said, ‘No, no, no we have to get new bangs.’ I did not stick up for myself and hence I look horrible. That was a big lesson—take care of yourself.” she said.

Hey, you live and learn.
