Though they are divorced, Courteney Cox, 48, has nothing but good things to say about her ex-husband David Arquette, 41.

“He is my best friend,” Cox admitted on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show that aired on Monday. “I love him!”

Cox and Arquette were married in 1999, and are the parents of eight-year-old daughter Coco. The pair split in October of 2010 after 11 years of marriage. After two years of separation, Arquette and Cox concurrently filed for divorce. They have joint physical and legal custody of their daughter.

“I appreciate David more now than I ever did. I mean … it’s hard. I don’t recommend divorce in general, but, you know, he is my best friend and we’ve both grown and changed,” she explained. “I think we both appreciate each other more. I hope he does. I do.”
