Courteney Cox looks to be moving on from her failed marriage with David Arquette quite well. She’s now reportedly dating Cougar Town co-star Brian Van Holt.
The duo have been seen together on multiple occasions recently, and a source revealed to Access Hollywood that the couple has been dating for “at least the past 10 months.” Other reports suggest they have been seeing each other for the past six months, though Cox has yet to comment on her speculated relationship.
The actress legally separated from Arquette in December of 2011, but her divorce wasn’t finalized until late last month. Earlier this year, Cox commented on her separation from Arquette while appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“I appreciate David more now than I ever did,” she said on the popular talk show. “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. I think we both appreciate each other more. I hope he does. I do.”
Courteney Cox began her role as the divorced 40-year-old mother on Cougar Town in 2009. Brian Van Holt plays her ex-husband in the series, but it seems the two have created an off-screen romance as well.
According to Cover Media, Brian and Courteney were seen earlier this month eating dinner together at Chi Lin in West Hollywood. An onlooker said they “acted like boyfriend and girlfriend,” and it’s also rumored that Cox’s daughter has taken a liking to Van Holt.
“The girl was extremely comfortable with Brian,” the insider said, via Cover Media. “She treated him like a dad or an uncle.”
The co-star romance is obviously heating up, though neither have spoken out about their connection. Nevertheless, they will continue their roles on Cougar Town after TBS announced in March that the show is set for 13 new episodes in the fifth season.
