Courteney Cox and David Arquette

These two are the absolute epitomy of friendly exes. Speaking to People magazine shortly after their 11-year marriage came to an end in 2010 Courteney said: “[David is] my favourite person in the world. No matter what happens in our future, he’s my very best friend.” In fact, they’ve remained so close that Arquette even appeared in Cox’s 2015 directorial debut, ‘Just Before I Go’. [Photo: Getty]
