Courteney Cox opens up about split from David Arquette

Breaking up is hard to do ... and so is moving on.

In the April issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Courteney Cox said she has “no desire” to date following her very public split from husband David Arquette.

“I’m not saying never. It just seems weird,” the actress told the magazine, which hits newsstands March 29. “I don’t even know how that would happen or how you meet people. I really don’t like to go out. I’m not great at small talk. I like to go to dinner with people. I don’t like to go to parties. There’s a sign on my forehead: ‘Exiting social life, entering into isolation.’”

Cox, 47, initiated a separation from Arquette, 36, in November after a decade of marriage — somethig she said will be hard to let go.

“We loved each other so much, and if anything I feel like we’ve been extremely successful at marriage,” she said. “ If it doesn’t work out, I will have huge waves of pain about failing in that department.”

After their split, Arquette went on a very public, very personal media rampage; he even spilled details about his and Cox’s sex life on air.

Her response? “You can’t really get mad at David because he’s not a malicious person,” she said. “He was dealing with things the best way he could. And don’t get me wrong, he was on a show for entertainment. David is smart, and David is also a showman. He knew what he was doing ... I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I don’t think he’ll be doing more Howard Stern any time soon.”  

The couple has a 6-year-old daughter named Coco.
