COURTENEY COX struggling through her "crazy" personal life?
Actress COURTENEY COX has thrown herself into her work on hit comedy COUGAR TOWN following the breakdown of her marriage to DAVID ARQUETTE, hailing the show as her "saving grace" as she struggles through her "crazy" personal life.
The former Friends star announced her separation from Arquette in October (10), although the couple insisted it was continuing to work on its marital problems.
Arquette checked himself into a treatment centre at the start of the New Year (11) in a bid to tackle his alcohol issues and the depression he's battled since the split.
Cox admits she's dealing with the increased press attention as best she can, although it's not always easy to cope with.
She says, "I'm kind of used to it, but as I get older I'm getting probably a little more sensitive. So it might be harder in some ways.
"Obviously, my life is kind of crazy right now and I'm getting a lot of that (media attention). So it's probably a little harder for me to be used to it."
But she's grateful to be able to fully immerse herself in her work and put her personal issues to one side when she's on set - despite concerns from director Bill Lawrence.
She adds, "Thank God for the show. There have been times when Bill has said, 'Are you all right? Do we need to take a break?' I'm like, 'Are you kidding? This is my saving grace.'
