Courteney Cox Offered $1 Mil to Promote Cougar Hunt

10/13/2010 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

She's barely a single woman ... but Courteney Cox is already getting a $1 million offer to become the new face of a dating website ... one that specializes in hooking cougars up with fresh meat.

TMZ has learned ... just one day after it was announced that Courteney separated from David Arquette, CougarLife.com -- a website that specializes in matching older women with younger men -- mailed her a $1 million contract to become their official spokes-cougar.

We're told CL believes Courteney's personal "circumstances" -- coupled with the fact that she stars in "Cougar Town" -- make her the perfect candidate.

As far as the contract goes -- Cox would be required to voice 12 radio ads, appear in 4 TV ads, and make at least 30 public appearances for the CL brand ... all within the span of one year.

But there's a catch -- CL would reserve the right to fire Cox if she gets arrested or "conducts herself in a manner that brings herself into disrepute."

So far no word on whether CC plans to sign.

I hope Courteney does it, if only to stop those horrible 'I'm a Cougar! You're a Cougar! Men love Cougars!" commercials that Cougar Life is already running now.
Ugh.. If you haven't seen it, the ad is bad. Really, really bad.

But I think Poster #1 (Dee Dee Russel) is right. This sounds like a publicity stunt for Cougar Life. Notice that the legal doc just happens to be web-based, linking their website on it.
Also, one million dollars isn't a lot for someone like Cox, and having to do 30 public appearances along with the ads seems like it's asking a lot of her for such little money.

I like Courtney but I always thought her and David were an odd couple. Oh well, that's their business.

Maybe it's just me but I cannot watch more than a couple of minutes of "Cougar Town." She seems like she is overacting. She's one of those girls that you root for, but she needs to chill on the acting. She's trying way too hard. Even when Anniston was on there it was awful IMO.

I don't want her show to fail, just to get better.

Section 8 - Termination
iv. Courteney Cox engages in conduct contrary to the best interests of Cougar Life.
---------------------------
Wait a minute... Does that mean they can terminate her if she dates an older man?!? That would be contrary to the best interests of CL if their own spokeswoman isn't even buying into the whole Cougar lifestyle.

one million to her is like $500 to us. Dont foget she used to get this for one weeks work years ago. Its just not enough, not to mention its a lousy idea for her. If she did this I would lose interest.

She shouldn't have taken on that skanky tv show. Nobody respects her now. Probably why her husband thinks he can cheat on her.

Whatever already with the cougar crappola. That word is so stupid to begin with. There will always be good looking women in their 40's, oh my how shocking.

There has always been good looking women in their 40's their 50's and so on.

Now we have all these dippy chicks who want to be "cougars" at our jobs, at the mall, at the kids schools, they created a whole group of obnoxious ladies who run around dressing their 20 year old daughters, because their "hot" still.

Puke. A lot of us still got it, but, we don't behave like bimbo's or Real Houswives. Stop glorifing all these sad women.

You are just encouraging them, and its not fun show to watch.

$1,000,000 to just go away and we never have to hear from you again. Additionally, take Jen Aniston with you.

Cougar is a derogatory term. Shame on Cox and all the women who play to that for a paycheck.
