Courteney Cox opens up to Bear Grylls about her 'brutal' breakup with Johnny McDaid

It turns out a trek through the Irish countryside with Bear Grylls really makes you reflect on life and talk candidly about your troubles.

At least that was the case for Courteney Cox anyways. The former Friends star appeared on Running Wild with Bear Grylls, and she spoke candidly with the British adventurer about her breakup with Snow Patrol band member Johnny McDaid which she described as 'brutal'.


Courteney confirmed to Grylls that she and McDaid are now together again but that everything feels "new".

"It's just...everything's new," she told Bear. "And we have both really worked on ourselves on the parts that needed the most attention. And it feels really different."

Cox also shed some light on her 2011 divorce from David Arquette.

"I think that we were such good friends," she explained. "We found ourselves leading separate lives and just coexisting and being great friends, but not having the intimacy so important in a relationship. I think you really need to work in a relationship, and I think that we tried. We're just really different, too. I'm the polar opposite of him. That can be great for a lot of things, but I need this kind of real, one-on-one connection. And I don't know. I don't know."
