- Courtney Cox and David Arquette confirm their separation

Courtney Cox has been in the news lately for her split from her husband David Arquette. Their separation has shocked many as the pair was seen as the ideal couple in Hollywood. So far they have not divorced but have separated and have agreed to see other people. Courtney herself has come from a broken home as her parents too divorced when she was a child and it affected her badly.

Courtney will always be remembered as her character Monica Geller in Friends (1994-2004). Friends became one of the most popular sitcoms ever. Things might have been different as Courtney was scheduled to play Rachel Green instead, had it not been for Jennifer’s Aniston’s insistence in auditioning for Rachel instead of Monica. Both of them suited well to their characters and the show was a mega hit. Courtney and Jennifer are also best friends in real life and Jennifer is godmother to her daughter Coco. Courtney really helped Jennifer cope after her split from Brad Pitt.

In movies, Courtney’s most famous role is of Gale Weathers in Scream (1996). The movie starred Nev Campbell in the lead. The movie has two sequels; Scream 2 (1997) and Scream 3 (2000) and a third sequel has recently been announced. Courtney has confirmed that she will be a part of it with David.

Courtney started off her career with playing small roles in TV shows but landed a recurring role in Family Ties. She also got work in movies like playing the lead in Masters of the Universe (1987) which was based on the He-Man comics. In 1994 she landed a role in Friends and the rest as we know is history. In between, Friends, she also appeared in some movies like 3000 Miles to Graceland (2001) and The Shrink Is In (2001), but the movies weren’t major successes. She also produced a reality show Mix It Up and the horror movie The Trippers (2006) with her now estranged husband David. She is currently enjoying success of her new sitcom called Cougar Town (2009), which is in its second season.
