Courteney Cox and David Arquette, who have been married for 11 years, have reportedly been separated for several months. According to TMZ, a source close to the couple claims Cox and Arquette are “still friends” and they maintain a business relationship.
Like any celebrity couple, there have been tabloid rumors of trouble in their relationship for years. Cox, 46, addressed those rumors a couple months ago during an interview with InStyle. “We’ve done couples therapy in the past. We’re not lazy about our marriage,” Cox said in the magazine’s August issue. “We have the same arguments we’ve had for years.
“Some things just never change, and you should realize that the intriguing things you fall in love with will probably become the things that you don’t like,” she continued, “and the very things that you’ll be talking about for the rest of your relationship.”
Cox went on to say that she and Arquette made conscious efforts to maintain their relationship. “You have to make an effort to stay connected, and that’s something we work at.”
Arquette seemed to echo those statements in an interview with People magazine earlier this year. “We have a really great, beautiful relationship,” he said. “Whenever things come up, we deal with them. We communicate. I would never do anything to jeopardize our relationship, you know what I mean? I’m committed, and we’re honest with each other. … Relationships take a lot of work.”
Cox and Arquette met on the set of 1995′s horror blockbuster “Scream” and will also be seen together in the upcoming fourth installment, “Scream 4.” They have a 6-year-old daughter, Coco.
