By that we mean that celebrities seem to have difficulties in places that normal people do just fine. Just like Courteney Cox here, that comedic actress with the loveliest ears in Hollywood (thank God that she keeps those things hidden under her hair!). Last week she had some, um, issues with backing out of a parking lot.
Captain Obvious would comment in this situation thusly: “if you can't drive a big SUV, settle for a Prius, will you?” But no, some people insist that size matters and Hollywood stars in particular make a point out of owning the biggest, loudest things on the road. The problem with that, like Courteney found out for herself, is that they tend a bit tough to handle, especially in tight places like, say, a parking lot.
After a meeting with hubby David Arquette, Courteney went on her merry way. The only thing that stood in her way was the parking lot exit, which turned out to be as elusive as a leprechaun's pot of gold. But fear not people, David was there to resolve the matter. Did he take the wheel? No. He settled for making stupid hand signals from behind Couteney's truck, guiding her out of the parking lot of doom.
Luckily for us, the paparazzi were there to capture this glorious moment on tape. At one point, David did ask them to turn the camera off as it was intimidating for the driver (Courteney). She was supposed to be used to cameras, but guess she still gets the jitters at times.
No cars or paparazzi were harmed (hear that, Britney?) during this incident, and Courteney did finally manage to get out of the Starbucks parking lot in the end. But in case she ever goes missing, we'll know what to tell the police: go look for her in a parking, she's probably doing circles, trying desperately to get out.
