'Scream 4' cast bonds on location: Barbecues, water balloon fights and lake house sleepovers

Emma-Roberts-Scream4.jpg"Scream 4" has become a who's who of young Hollywood, with a slew of young actors joining returning vets, Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette, for the latest installment.

One common thread between all actors present at Wednesday's (Mar. 23) press conference was that they had a blast while filming.

"Neve would rent a little lake house a couple of the weekends we were there, and we all would go and sleep over and have the best time," Emma Roberts tells Zap2it of her favorite memories. "It was so much fun."

We also sat down with "Heroes" star, Hayden Panettiere, who gushes, "We had the best time. When you're dealing with a young cast, of course it can go either way. There can be the drama and all of the above, but we loved each other, we spent tons of time with each other. It was like camp for us... I miss it."

"We bonded," Anthony Anderson echoes. "We'd be out there [at the lake house] for 3-4 days at a time, just having water balloon fights and barbecues and love making. All kinds of things."

Panettiere tells us that though she's known co-star Rory Culkin for many years, she never really had a whole lot of friends in the industry.

"I just never found myself in long term friendships with people who were in the same industry as me," she explains. "I mean, my best friends are now the people I met on this movie."

Those best friends now include Roberts, Culkin, Nico Tortorella and Erik Knudsen, to name a few. But wasn't just the new blood that bonded -- Cox admits that she and Campbell developed a more powerful friendship this time around, as well.

"I became closer with Neve during this movie than I did the first three," Cox admits. "I just adore that girl."

Who knew filming slasher movies could be such a blast? You can watch the cast as they try to escape the Ghostface killer when "Scream 4" is released on April 15th.
