Cox finds aging difficult

LOS ANGELES: Courteney Cox Arquette could not have coped with turning 40 if she was not married. The former Friends star says her spouse David Arquette and the couple’s five-year-old daughter Coco have made it easier for her to deal with ageing.

The 45-year-old beauty said, “When I turned 40, I was laying in bed with my daughter Coco. I just had her two days before, so I actually was going, ‘Oh, my God, how am I going to give this back to someone?!’ Being 40 I think is hard for women, but I did not experience it until later.

“Getting older is harder anyway, but living in Hollywood is exceptionally hard. It would be really scary if I was not married and I had to go back out there again. And it is true that most men date women that are younger.”

David is seven years younger than Courteney and the

actress finds it flattering she has a toy boy.
