What is going on with Courteney Cox? First she was linked with her Cougar Town costar Brian Van Holt and there were pretty convincing rumors that their “friendship” hastened the end of her marriage to David Arquette. (Or the time out that she called so that she could bone Van Holt, whatever you want to call it.)
Now she was just papped on a beach vacation in St. Barts with yet another costar, Josh Hopkins. It’s sketchy, and Courteney looks like she’s working her way through the hot male costars on set. Only Courteney swears that they’re “just friends” and it’s “platonic.” I don’t know, I wouldn’t go on vacation with a single male coworker even if I assumed he didn’t want to get in my pants. It sends the wrong message to both the guy and to anyone who might hear about it. It’s especially reckless if you’re famous, only Courteney thinks we’ll just take her word for it that she went off to the Caribbean with a guy buddy. It looks like they were there with a group of friends, though.
Courteney Cox and 6-year-old daughter Coco were seen Tuesday on the Caribbean sands with Cox’s Cougar Town costar Josh Hopkins.
It’s the latest sighting of Cox, 46, with Hopkins, 40, since her separation last October from husband David Arquette – they were spotted in Hawaii filming a scene in the pool and in the surf, but in those instances they were on location for the show.
This time, the getaway isn’t work-related, but their rep tells PEOPLE romance is playing no role.
“The relationship is strictly platonic and they are away with a group of friends on vacation,” the rep says.
According to a Cougar Town set source, “Courteney and Josh are great friends. There’s definitely nothing going on there.”
These are some very clear staged photos that two photo agencies we use have. They’re not typical paparazzi shots, and are meant to show off Courteney’s hot bikini bod and new somewhat subtle boob job. She probably thought that the press would ignore the fact that she was there with Hopkins because they brought other people with them. It looks suspicious, but maybe she truly believed that she wouldn’t get called out for it. Or maybe she’s telling the truth and she’s only sleeping with Van Holt. Why didn’t he come along then?
Josh is the guy who allegedly called Jennifer Aniston a sport f*ck and then complained about his tabloid image. Not a great idea to go on vacation with Courteney Cox then, especially when she’s inviting the paparazzi to document it.
Update: Radar Online has quotes from Josh’s dad, a U.S. Congressman from Kentucky. He confirms that he son “went on some dates with Jennifer Aniston” and says he’s uncertain whether Josh is dating Courteney, but adds “I know he likes her and is very fond of her. He’s said she’s a very nice person.”
