Courteney Cox is speaking out for the first time about her split with husband David Arquette.

"I don't know what will happen, but this is not like we're getting divorced," Cox says in a new interview with Australia's TV Week. "This is a separation and I think that takes a lot of courage . . . Whatever is supposed to happen will be the best thing for us."

Still, Cox acknowledges that she and her husband of 11 years are no longer on the same page. "Sometimes you just realize 'Wow, we actually have grown apart," she says.





Referring to an interview that Arquette did with radio host Howard Stern, which aired right after their split was announced (and for which he later apologized), Cox said, "[David] is a kook. It's not shocking and Howard Stern he loves him and I'm a fan of Howard Stern . . . David is an entertainer and I'm sure the people who listen to the radio are entertained by his stories."

While her husband – who said the couple were going to take their daughter Coco, 6, trick or treating this Halloween weekend – was talking to Stern, Cox was apparently leaning on her best Friends costar, Jennifer Aniston.

"We just have fun, we laugh, we're inseparable and it's great," Cox says. "It's funny, a lot of really close friends are kind of going through this right now or like Jennifer [who] has gone through it. I don't know what's going on in the planets or what, but things are being shaken up and I don't know what's going to happen, but, yeah, Jennifer has been amazing for sure."
