In an interview with More magazine, Cox insists that she maintains a good relationship with her ex-husband because she loves him.
“When you love someone, you want them to be happy, even if it’s not with you,” she said.
The former couple met in 1996 on the set of the movie Scream and married three years later. They separated in October 2010 and their divorce was finalized in May 2012.
“In divorce you always have regrets. We were married for a long time, so it’s not like we didn’t try,” she explained.
The two are parents to daughter Coco, 9, and have been raising her together.
“Obviously, kids always want their parents to be together,” Cox admits. “But as divorces go, this is the best one we could provide.”
Arquette is currently in a relationship with Christina McLarty with whom he is expecting a son.
