Well this is sad news. After eleven years together (54 in Hollywood years) Courteney Cox and David Arquette have separated. The actors, who first met in 1996 while filming Scream, are parents to 6 year old daughter Coco. Cox, 46, and Arquette, 39, married in San Francisco three years after meeting, and have often publicly talked about marriage struggles and the fact they use couples counseling. The couple released this statement regarding their separation:
“The reason for this separation is to better understand ourselves and the qualities we need in a partner and for our marriage. We remain best friends and responsible parents to our daughter and we still love each other deeply. As we go through this process we are determined to use kindness and understanding to get through this together. We are comfortable with the boundaries that we have established for each other during this separation and we hope that our friends, family, fans and the media also show us respect, dignity, understanding and love at this time as well.”
Darn. These were one of my favorite Hollywood couples. What do you think? Did you see this one coming?
