Courteney Cox on being sensitive

Courteney Cox as First Lady Edith Wilson in Drunk History

“I have, like, hyper-awareness. It’s like a disease. I can’t help it. I notice everything.”

[From Courteney in Control, By Hilary De Vries, August 2006.]

Another profile article says Courteney Cox, “who considers herself always to have been sensitive, has grown even more so since having a kid [daughter Coco]. To the point where she can’t bear to landscape the front of her house because it would involve killing the plants there.”

“I can’t tell you how much time I think about taking up the plants that don’t really work anymore,” she said. “Something has completely changed in me. I don’t know what happened. I’m sure it’s after Coco — I’m sure. I have a life to take care of.”
