Courteney Cox Arquette not ready to date again
Former 'Friends' star Courteney Cox Arquette claims she is ''too shy'' to date again after splitting from husband David Arquette, 39, last month after 14 years together.
Courteney Cox Arquette claims she is "too shy" to date again.
The 'Cougar Town' actress - who announced last month she and husband David Arquette were undergoing a trial separation - has thrown herself into her work as she is worried about the prospect of going out and meeting someone new.
Asked if she was ready to date again, Courteney - who has a six-year-old daughter Coco with the actor - said: "Oh, man! Right now I'm not ready for anything. I'm just working and looking for some calm and some time to sit back and reflect. I don't know if I'd want to go back to dating - I might be too shy."
But the Hollywood star admitted if she did start seeing someone new - she wouldn't want to date anyone good-looking.
She added to Britain's Hello! magazine: "You know what would be really hard for me? To go out with someone who I thought was too handsome - someone who, in every way, looks better than I do. That would be really uncomfortable."
Courteney - who recently insisted she and David have no plans to divorce, despite their separation - also praised her estranged husband describing him as her "best friend".
She said: "We're the best of friends. It was never a horrible relationship, although obviously we grew apart.
"David is an amazing person. He has a wonderful soul and we get along very well. We're hoping that things work out for the best."
