Los Angeles - Courteney Cox will "always" love her estranged husband David Arquette.
The Cougar Town actress - who split from the star in 2010 after 11 years of marriage - has not ruled out getting back together with the 40-year-old actor as she loves him "more than anything in the world".
The 47-year-old star - who has seven-year-old daughter Coco with David - said: "Who knows what will happen. We're not divorced, and I suppose at some point we will be, but the reason I say, 'Never say never', is because when my dad was dying he regretted not being with my mum, who he divorced when I was 10.
"All I know is we're always going to love each other and whoever else comes into our lives will know that our relationship is extremely close, and that has to be accepted. We've both talked about that. We're not your typical broken-up couple. I love David more than anything in the world."
Courteney admits the pair are now "better parents" since they split, and her and David - who recently broke up with his girlfriend Christina McLarty - have a "really great, open relationship".
She added to Stella magazine: "We always had a huge fondness for each other, but sometimes if you don't catch things you can end up leading separate lives.
"The thing is we were working together so we thought we were seeing each other all the time.
"But we weren't really dealing with what needed to be dealt with, which was how to stay married and be true intimate partners.
"Now we're separate we're able to talk about all our resentments and the things we should have listened to each other on.
"We kind of know where it went wrong, and how we felt ourselves drifting apart. So now we have this really great, open relationship. We speak to each other all the time; if we don't see each other in a week it's a big deal.
"And we're better parents to Coco. We're more patient with each other."
