Courteney Cox: I Have Not Dated Since Separating from David Arquette (VIDEO)
Courteney Cox still isn't ready to get back into the dating game since separating from David Arquette, her husband of 11 years. Stopping by Anderson Cooper's talk show, the actress revealed that dating in Hollywood is difficult and she's trying to stay focused on their daughter Coco and her TV career.
“Yeah, you know it's hard,” Courteney, 47, said during the interview. “I probably caught up to this whole situation later than he did. And, I am really happy for him and he's got a girlfriend. Everything's great, I know it seems so weird, it's even weird for me to say that.”
Even David is trying to get her to start dating again. "David said, 'Courteney, you've got to get out there.' I'm easing my way in," she said.
When asked whether she ever dated her Cougartown costar Josh Hopkins, the actress shot down the pesky rumors with a simple, "No."
Although Court and David remain friends, they were nervous about how their seven-year-old daughter would react to the split.
"I think she's a really old soul, this kid. I mean she says things like, 'Mom, I don't want you to get hurt but daddy has a girlfriend.' She's just kind of a really unique kid. Obviously she'd like to see us back together because all kids do but she understands that we're okay, that we love each other and we will always be a family. I tell her everything, we both are like that, we tell her everything."
