Courteney Cox: 'David Arquette Is My Best Friend In The World'

No bad blood here!

Courteney Cox and David Arquette amicably separated in Oct. 2010 and officially filed for divorce in June 2012. But the former couple is still as close as ever.

"He's my best friend in the world," Cox, 48, admits on an episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" airing Jan. 7, (via People). "I love him."

Cox, who supported Arquette, 41, through his treatment in rehab and his comeback on "Dancing With the Stars," says she and her ex are a great team and simply grew apart over their 11-year marriage.

"I appreciate David more now than I ever did. I mean ... it's hard. I don't recommend divorce in general, but, you know, he is my best friend and we've both grown and changed," the "Cougar Town" star, who shares custody of their 8-year-old daughter Coco, explains, adding, "I think we both appreciate each other more. I hope he does. I do."

Arquette is currently dating "Entertainment Tonight" correspondent Christina McClarty, while Cox is enjoying her single life.
