LOS ANGELES – A New York Times fashion blogger outraged readers last week after alleging that Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Kate Hudson have “put on a little weight" at the Golden Globe awards. But while fans raised eyebrows at the bold criticism, one person who was less downright angry was Cox's husband, David Arquette.
The actor voiced his disgust to Tarts at the opening of the "Pee Wee Herman Show" in Los Angeles Wednesday. "I don’t think that has anything to do with anything. Writing articles about people that put on weight is just wasting space for real news,” Arquette said. “And who really cares? I love round people, I love skinny people. I love people in general; we’ve got to get past labels and stop being so critical about everything. On the Internet, people find that place and think they can just speak their mind, but a lot of the time you see how mean people are. In general, we just need to be a kinder society.”
And as for the highly-anticipated “Scream 4,” while Arquette, wife Cox and co-star Neve Campbell have all signed on, director Wes Craven has not officially come on board.
"I'm so excited," Arquette proclaimed. “I hope more than anything that Wes Craven does it. If he doesn’t it will break my heart, I have my fingers crossed.”
Also at Pee Wee’s show was troubled Tinseltowner David Hasselhoff (who stuck to the water all night and told us he was “doing good, taking one day at a time”) before gushing about his new gig – an unnamed reality show on A&E.
“Living with the Hoff baby!” he exclaimed. “All the ups and all the downs, all the stuff you see in the press. What’s good, what’s bad, what’s indifferent, that’s what you can expect.”
But it seems one show is not enough. Hasselhoff wants to follow in the footsteps of “Melrose Place” and “90210” and bring back those busty babes running along the beach in slow motion.
“I would absolutely do Baywatch again,” he said. “I would do anything; it was a lot of fun.”
