1101_coxCourteney Cox-Arquette is opening up about her split from husband of 11 years, David Arquette -- saying "I don't know what will happen, but this is not like we're getting divorced."

In a new interview with TV Week (via Us Magazine) Courteney says, "This is a separation and I think that takes a lot of courage," adding "Whatever is supposed to happen will be the best thing for us."

Courteney says her BFF Jennifer Aniston has been incredibly supportive during this tough time, telling TV Week, "We just have fun, we laugh, we're inseparable and it's great. 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."
