“I think that we were such good friends,” Cox said. “We found ourselves leading 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. That can be great for a lot of things, but I need this kind of real, one-on-one connection.”
Cox maintains that her relationship with Arquette is based on mutual respect as the two have a 12-year-old daughter called Coco Riley Arquette.
“It wasn’t a dramatic ending ... I mean, as divorces go, I would say it’s one of the better ones. For sure. We’re good co-parents together.”
The actress is currently dating Snow Patrol band member Johnny McDaid, 40.
“The way he regards love is precious,” Cox said about McDaid.
“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 ... I didn’t know how to bring it in. It was always external. I definitely have learned a lot, and no matter what, I will be a better person from that breakup, even though it was so brutal.”
