Courteney Cox and Demi Moore debut short films

Courteney Cox and Demi Moore debuted their short films at the Reel Moments event for Glamour Magazine in LA last night. The actresses directed films drawn from stories sent in by Glamour readers. Moore’s film starred her daughter, Rumer Willis, and actress Brittany Snow. Screenwriter Kirsten Smith from “The House Bunny” and “Legally Blonde” also premiered a short film:

When women make movies, Hollywood pays attention, as scores of A-listers turned out to see Demi Moore, Courteney Cox and screenwriter Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith make their directorial debuts.

Jennifer Aniston, Lucy Liu, Sheryl Crow, Kirsten Dunst, Sacha Baron Cohen, Ashton Kutcher and David Arquette were among the stars who gathered at the Directors Guild headquarters Tuesday for Glamour magazine’s annual Reel Moments event, where Moore, Cox and Smith each showed a short film based on stories by Glamour readers.

“It’s a tremendous gift” to have the opportunity to direct, Moore said. “I realized, besides being completely terrified about taking this on, that people had faith in me far more than I had in myself, and that I will keep for the rest of my life.”

Moore’s 12-minute film, “Streak,” features her daughter Rumer Willis as a free spirit who inspires a calorie-counting college girl (Brittany Snow) to shed her restrictive lifestyle and have fun.

Cox showed “The Monday Before Thanksgiving,” a 19-minute drama about a woman who finds peace and acceptance on the anniversary of her mother’s death. Cox opened the program by announcing, “I’m available for directing.”

“I love it,” she said in an interview. “I would do it again in a heartbeat.”

Demi Moore, 45, and Courteney Cox, 44, look like two peas in a pod. They’re both gorgeous and when I first saw Demi’s photo thumbnail I thought it was Courteney without even knowing she was there. Ashton Kutcher looks mighty pissed off, though, and I can’t help but think his marriage with Demi could be in trouble. Look at the way he’s looking down as she gets out of the car – as if he’s annoyed with her and doesn’t want to be there. Maybe he just doesn’t like these type of events or tried to beg off and got roped into going. There are plenty of guys who sit dejected on the bench in the middle of the mall whose marriages are fine. It’s an event for Glamour magazine. It’s like the celebrity equivalent of being dragged to a chick flick.

    Maybe Ashton’s just pissed because he clearly chose the wrong cougar — Courtney Cox is gorgeous!

  2. vdantev says:

    Wow, they could be sisters !

    Yikes. Don’t agree at all about how good Demi & Courtney look – to me, they just seem…waxy. 8O

    I bet Demi & Ashton are in trouble. He may be evoled somewhat, but it must suck to always be thought of as Mr. Demi Moore. :?

  4. geronimo says:

    Courtney is much more attractive than Demi (although yes, K, they both are a bit waxy here).

    There, now that I’ve said that, how Demi can bear the idiot savant that is Ashton Kutcher is just beyond me. 8O

  5. Kaiser says:

    @G – Seriously. Demi’s face looks like it’s melting.

  6. Diva says:

    In the other pics I’ve seen around (Lainey) Ashton looks anything but unhappy. There’s a cute pic of them looking at each other where they look totally in love to me.

    I’m a hopeless romantic, though, and never believe love dies until someone shoots it with her revolver heels. :lol:

  7. geronimo says:

    :lol: Diva. I love romance but Ashton has always been anti-romance for me! Madge and Guy on the other hand, sadness… :cry:

  8. audrey says:

    Please.. they both look gorgeous.

  9. blech. says:

    So, it looks like Bruce’s chin is quite dominant. Too bad they didn’t have any boys, I bet they would have been insanely gorgeous.
