Courteney Cox is one of the most successful stars of the Hollywood industry. The actress who became a household name since the series Friends is still adored by the masses for her down to earth and straightforward stance on issues. Courteney has had her share of failed relationships and the starlet is quite open about her mistakes too.
The mind blowing actress got all chatty and frank on the Monday’s episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls. The diva not only spoke about her love life but she also gave her view on getting older in the field of Hollywood.
Courteney Cox spoke about getting older in the business saying, “I have done things that I regret, and luckily they’re things that dissolve and go away, so that’s good, because that’s not always been my best look. Just being a woman in this business… getting older is not the easiest thing. But I have learned lessons. I think I was trying to keep up with being older.”
Cox also commented on separating from David Arquette saying, “We found ourselves living separate lives and just coexisting and being great friends, but not having the intimacy that is so important in a relationship. I think you really need to work in a relationship, and I think that we tried. We’re just really different, too. I’m the polar opposite of him. And that can be great for a lot of things, but I need this kind of real, one-on-one connection. And I don’t know – I don’t know. it wasn’t a dramatic ending.”
Courteney Cox further added, “No one’s ever asked me in this way, so I haven’t really thought about it like this. I mean, as divorces go, I would say it’s one of the better ones, for sure. We’re good co-parents together.”
The starlet also spoke about breaking up with her fiancé Johnny McDaid and then rekindling the relationship. She said, “We were engaged for over a year and then we broke up. There’s something about … you know, he’s from Ireland. And the way he regards love is precious. We have to treat it in a different way. It’s more special you coddle it. So I didn’t know how to regard love the way he does. And I definitely made a lot of mistakes that I see whether it’s co-dependency or people-pleasing. I didn’t know how to bring it in. It was always external.”
