Courteney Cox may have been vacationing in St. Barts with her Cougar Town costar Josh Hopkins and some friends recently, but David Arquette says there's nothing controversial about the trip.

"We're best friends," Arquette said of Cox on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show Monday morning. "We're not together. We're still separated."

"And you know, there [are] horrible articles right now," he said. "She went away to St. Bart's with Coco and her best friend and Josh from the show, and I know about all of this. But these tabloids make it like there's some kind of scandal going on. But there's no scandal."





A rep for the actress at the time said her relationship with Hopkins was "strictly platonic." And Cox and Arquette reunited to take daughter Coco to Walt Disney World in Florida days after her Caribbean trip.

In fact, Arquette, 39, says their relationship is built on strong communication. "We're really honest and open," he said. "Our relationship right now is actually better than ever."

Saying that he and Cox, 46, are "best friends," the actor, who is set to premiere Scream 4 on Monday night in New York, is using his separation as a learning experience.

"We both took a moment to look at our relationship," he said. "For me, I used it in a bad way to act out and kind of shake my world up because I was heartbroken. I dealt with it in the way I had to because I believe in learning from [my] mistakes."

Added Arquette: "I went where I had to go to ... come back and look at myself and my life."
