In an interview with OMG! Insider, Ed spoke about his matchmaking skills. "I wasn't allowed to talk about this, actually, but it's just gone public, so… My housemate (Johnny) who I've lived with for a year, I introduced him to Courteney Cox. They started dating and are crazy about each other.

"He supports me in ever way," the former Friends star told US Magazine. "He supports me creatively. He really believed in the movie, and not just because he likes me, though I know that helps!"
Northern Ireland-born Johnny added, "Courteney is the most confident person I've ever met – at everything. She gets music. She gets art. She gets the way a scene gets constructed, the way dialogue works. And she puts it all together in her mind and then explains it to the world and makes movies that make people laugh and cry, squirm and jump, all those things."
