Former FRIENDS star Courteney Cox is considering having plastic surgery if she starts looking too old for husband David Arquette.

The actress, 41, met her 34-year-old spouse on the set of 1996 horror movie SCREAM, but at first refused to consider him as a boyfriend because of their eight year age gap.

And, despite a wedding in 1999 and the birth of their baby COCO (04), Cox remains concerned about their future.

She says, "I think he did play a bit hard to get which made him more interesting. I really thought he was too young. Then I realised just how good a person he is. Simply terrific. And he'd call me every day and tell me I was terrific. Which kind of helped.

"I try not to let the age thing bother me - unless I ever look at the screen when we're working and think, 'Oh my god, I look so old next to him.'

"Then I really will consider plastic surgery."
