'Cougar Town' Star Josh Hopkins 'Just Friends' with Courteney Cox
"Extra" caught up with "Cougar Town" stars Josh Hopkins and Courteney Cox at a special event where the show was honored by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Josh asserted that he and Courteney, the famous ex-"Friend," are "just friends."
The pair sparked rumors of romantic involvement after they were snapped in their swimwear during a paradise getaway to St. Bart's last month. Hopkins unexpectedly said of their island adventure, "She [Courteney] was actually trying to help me look for ladies. She's a good wingman," adding, "Every guy knows when you are with a hot girl, all the other hot guys are like, 'What's he got, he must be cool,' so it only helps."
Courteney chimed in and laughed, "He's boring," and verified he was telling the truth.
When asked about their TV chemistry, Josh revealed, "We have a like sensibility, we have a like sense of humor... we all really do on the show. When the cameras stop -- I know it's cliché -- we really are friends... we really are."
The actor expressed his genuine fondness for Courteney, saying, "I love her so much," but reiterated, "We are just friends."
