Courteney Cox has revealed she appreciates her ex-husband David Arquette more now they have split.
The former Friends star split from the actor in 2010 after 11 years of marriage, and they filed divorce papers last summer, but Courteney said they are still the best of friends.
She told Ellen DeGeneres on her US chat show: "He's my best friend in the world. I love him."
The Cougar Town star - who has an eight-year-old daughter, Coco, with the actor - added: "I appreciate David more now than I ever did.
"I mean... it's hard. I don't recommend divorce in general, but, you know, he is my best friend and we've both grown and changed."
Courteney and David fell in love after shooting Scream together and tied the knot in 1999. They announced their separation in October 2010.
