Courteney Cox Covers 'Harper's Bazaar' April 2011

Courteney Cox graces the cover of Harper’s Bazaar magazine’s April 2011 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (March 29).

Here’s what the 46-year-old Cougar Town actress had to share:

On her estranged husband, David Arquette: “You can’t really get mad at David because he’s not a malicious person. He was dealing with things the best way he could. And don’t get me wrong, he was on a show for entertainment. David is smart, and David is also a showman. He knew what he was doing. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I don’t think he’ll be doing more Howard Stern any time soon. He’s not out to harm. But I’m his biggest protector. I can’t help it.”

On her marital struggles: “The thing is, when you get older, it’s more about compatibility than it is about love. I think it’s more about needing just a kind of peace and stillness. I’m kind of all over the place, and I need grounding. I want to be calm. I want to change a lot. I want to live not outside but inside. It’s nothing with David; it’s just what I’m searching for.”

On their seven-year age gap: “Most guys aren’t that mature, are they? They just don’t think the way we think. I thought I had always been a little bit of a cougar with David….I don’t find the whole cougar word that offensive. And also, a cougar is someone who takes care of herself and goes out with younger guys. She doesn’t need a man to take care of her.”

    What goes around comes around Courteney, she enabled her crazy 46yoa has been BFF for years. Cox should stop messing with her face.
    She gets Philosophical when talking about her public split in this mag.but CC and DA blamed another person for JA break up!

  • Candi

    too much botox.

  • lilia mazunina


  • mia

    oh god, i thought it was a real bad picture of katy perry!

  • deke

    Great intellect Courtney. What a mature woman.

  • Candi

    i would respect her more if she got rid of ticky.

  • fed

    my problem isn’t with Courtney. she is a beautiful woman, (albeit too much botox maybe). My problem is how low American Harper’s Bazaar is lately! Their covers are disastrous! Look at Harper’s Bazaar UK covers and you tell me who trumps who…

  • Idril

    I used to love her but now she looks just weird. That’s so sad.

  • Max

    Everybody talked about how beautiful Jennifer Aniston was when she was on Friends (Sorry, I never saw it; her face looked mannish) but Courtney Cox, to me, was the most beautiful one on that show. Lisa Kudrow wasn’t bad looking herself, but Courtney stood out to me. Maybe because I have thing for raven haired beauties with blue or green eyes.

  • sweet

    I do not dislike her , but I am not a fan.
    She contradicts herself when talking about her martial struggles being all over the place and then wanting calm and …
    Sooooo ,dating a costar,and a much younger guy is calm?
    She willl get a reality check there.
    Compatibility and love go hand and hand….she sayscompatibility is more impt. thann love as you get older.
    Sorry, but she is wrong there.
    She will be with her friend Jenneifer talking this stuff up about her marriage for the next few years.
    She had a guy who loved her totoally…was a bit out there, but was compatible in some ways.
    She has tons of money and they have one precious child they had a hard time trying to have a family. They should have,could have adopted another child after to just for a sibling for Coco and to give so much love,time,money, privilege to another.
    Love and age,marriage,takes time and if you are lucky like she was to get it all,try to keep it,change it up,have the other person change some,called growing is better rather than hit the dating scene and start all over and go from guy to guy.Have daivd go from girl to girl. The only people who lose are the two who got married .Go back to the feelings and reason they got married.

  • Missy

    To Idril: Yeah right, you used to LOVE her? And now not anymore, because she looks weird? Uhm, yeah then you didn’t love her, because no matter what she will ever do to her looks, she will always be an idol of mine. She has the most wonderful personality. She can’t help you’re so superficial..and by the way, she looks freaking amazing here, botox or not! Even better in the behind the scenes video of this shoot, without all the photoshop. It makes her look more botoxed than she really is.

  • Andrew

    Such b*tches on this site, jealous much? Most 20 year olds don’t even have such a hot, toned, tight body, full shiny long hair, and such a beautiful faceshape and skin as this lady. And she is going near 50, i say she looks fabulous. Would chose her over any other woman any day.

  • Reality Check

    This interview makes me respect her even more. Not only is she a good-looking lady but also a very wise one!

  • shay

    She not dated her co stars, it’s a friends and Christa said he’s single on twitter for ladies so stop it

    Here the problem is not the botox (view video of this shoot) the problem is photoshop so much on cover

    Love her as woman, mom & actress, son underated!

    I met him once, she was super nice and she’s really beautiful in real life, that’s why I can say I’ve seen

    And agree with Missy, Andrew, Reality Check, Max, Deke

    To protect a man who disrespects your privacy in public is an indication of an unhealthy self-image. Seems like she convinced herself that she is not “worthy” of something or someone. Divorce is a physical act. A piece of paper cannot remove the times you spent together, good and bad. A piece of paper cannot erase the memories. No one is perfect. We all need to be in a state of perpetual growth and maturity. You can date and marry a million ppl. They will all disappoint you to some degree. You have to be committed to the vow, not the person.

  • Idril


    I don’t love her as I used to because I can’t identify myself to the “new Courtney”. That’s not superficial, using botox is. I’m not talking about personality but, I will never understand why beautifull women like Courteney or Meg Ryan for example change themselves because they so don’t need to. They are not aging but getting weird.

  • Pritty

    They should’ve gone easy on the photoshop…
