Actress Courteney Cox has admitted that she finds it harder to cope with the public eye since splitting from her actor husband David Arquette last year.

The 46-year-old, who sprang to fame in Friends, said at a US TV industry event, “My life is kind of crazy right now.”

“It’s probably a little harder for me than it used to be, I think I just didn’t notice.”

It was the first time Courteney had spoken in public about her separation from David, 39, whom she met when they were making the horror hit Scream.

However she has not said whether or not they plan to divorce. After the split he checked into a rehab clinic to seek help for a drinking problem and depression.

The couple have a six-year-old daughter, Coco.

Courteney is currently starring in the hit series Cougar Town, and will also appear in Scream 4, which is released later this year.

She also admitted at the event that she allows Coco to watch the show, despite its racy content.

“If I say yes, I am a bad mom?” she asked “I do – I tell her to close her eyes when it’s inappropriate – but she does watch it.”
