Courteney Cox Honors Her Infamous 'Scream 3' Bangs in Hilarious Video


Courteney Cox celebrated Halloween with a bang!

The actress paid homage to one of the more frightening aspects of the “Scream” franchise --  her character Gale Weathers’ severe haircut in the 2000 sequel “Scream 3.”

"It's Halloween so I thought I'd get into the spirit of things and watch some of the “Scream” movies," the 55-year-old said in a video shared on Instagram.

"I chose “Scream 3” and I noticed that Gale Weathers has those infamous bangs. I don't think there's anything that wrong with it.”

After showing a clip of her character sporting the blunt cut in the film, Cox was emboldened and added: “I say I can bring it back. Let’s see.”

She proceeds to whip out a pair of scissors and begins cutting, what we hope is a wig, in a somewhat straight line across her forehead to transform her long locks into the infamous hairstyle.

“I like it,” she said confidently. “What do you think?”

The video ends as someone dressed as the movie’s Ghostface killer jumps up from behind and causes her to scream.

Earlier this year, Cox reflected on the character’s infamous look and how she would handle the distressing situation differently now.

“I had these bangs and they were cut too short,” the “Friends” alum said. “At that time in my life, I wasn’t the kind of person who would say, ‘You know what? These are too short. We need to get new bangs.'”

She added: “I did not stick up for myself and hence I look horrible. That was a big lesson—take care of yourself.”

Despite her polarizing tresses, “Scream 3” went on to earn a hair-raising $161 million at the box office.
