Courteney Cox: 'David is still my best friend'

Friday January 13, 2012

Courteney Cox has said her estranged husband David Arquette is her "best friend".

The former Friends star split from the actor in 2010 after 11 years of marriage but told People the pair are still extremely close.

"He's my favourite person in the world," said the actress, who has a seven-year-old daughter, Coco, with him.

"He's my best friend. No matter what happens in our future, he's my very best friend."

David, 40, checked into rehab in January 2011 for treatment for alcohol abuse and Cougar Town actress Courteney revealed he is doing "great".

"[We went out to celebrate] David's one year of sobriety," said the 47-year-old.

The couple fell in love after shooting Scream together and tied the knot in 1999. They announced their separation in October 2010.
