LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Millions of young women are having a tough time deciding who’s the hunkier star, Zac Efron or Robert Pattinson – and Courteney Cox-Arquette is among them.
“There’s always Zac Efron. He’s cute – but he’s too young,” the 46-year-old “Cougartown” actress told the August issue of InStyle magazine. “Or Robert Pattinson. Ooh, he’s cute. How old is he? I saw one picture of him and he looked dangerous.”
Also dangerous? Living with husband David Arquette, who she says isn’t so handy around the house.
“I’ve never been with a man who’s handy,” Courteney explained. “If we didn’t live together, David wouldn’t even notice if a lightbulb had burned out.”
However, she added that she’s picked up the slack in that department.
“I have amassed one of the greatest tool kits ever,” she said. “I used to be extremely handy fixing sprinklers – until they got so complicated… Oh, and I can light an outdoor gas heater – the secret is you have to hold the button down longer than most men seem to be able to.”
Handiness aside, Courteney also admitted that their long marriage – the couple wed over 11 years ago, in 1999 – takes work, too.
“We’re not lazy about our marriage,” she said. “You have to make an effort to stay connected, and that’s something we work at.”
Though much has changed since the pair got together on the set of “Scream,” one thing’s stayed the same – they still like scary movies. Courteney was photographed on the “Scream 4” set this week, and both stars are reprising their roles as Gale Weathers and Dwight “Dewey” Riley, respectively, in the April 2011-due film.
