Courteney Cox recently commended David Arquette, 39, for checking himself into rehab. And she's not the only person who admires his self-improvement efforts.

Craven, who calls Cox, 46, and Arquette, "professional," says any tension between the couple was not obvious during filming of the latest Scream, which stars both of them.
