Newly-separated Courteney Cox and David Arquette have been spared an awkward encounter on the red carpet at the Scream Awards on Saturday - the former "Friends" star will not be a part of a film presentation.

It is not known if Cox was ever scheduled to join Arquette and her fellow "Scream 4" co-stars Neve Campbell and Emma Roberts to preview their new movie, but now she's definitely not part of the get together.

She and Arquette announced their separation on Monday and Arquette has since apologized for going public with his thoughts and feelings about the split on shock jock Howard Stern's radio show.
