In light of the Cox-Arquette split, a status update on 'Friends' cast members

The separation of Courteney Cox and David Arquette is one of those "this is technically none of our business" celebrity stories that nevertheless makes us feel a little sad. They were -- or are, since this separation is reportedly just trial -- one of those Hollywood couples that seemed just quirky and committed enough to go the distance. I mean, they're Dewey Riley and Gale Weathers, for God's sake. They're supposed to be blissfully married in the just-wrapped "Scream 4." (Speaking of, if Cox and Arquette really have been separated for a while, that must have made things a little awkward on the set.)

Between word of this rupture and the news that Cox's fellow "Friend" David Schwimmer got married semi-secretly in June, this seems like a good time for a status update on the lives of our "Friends."

Courteney Cox

Romantic status: Separated -- but not divorced -- from David Arquette, husband of 11 years.

Parental status: Has one daughter, Coco Riley Arquette.

Career status: She currently stars on ABC's "Cougar Town."

Awards earned since "Friends" ended: Earned her first Golden Globe Award nomination last year for her work on "Cougar Town."


David Schwimmer

Romantic status: Married in June to longtime girlfriend Zoe Buckman, a British photographer.

Parental status: No kids.

Career status: Recently directed the film "Trust," a drama about a girl who becomes the victim of an online sexual predator. The film, which stars Clive Owen and Catherine Keener, recently screened at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Awards earned since "Friends" ended: His comedy "Run, Fat Boy, Run" was nominated for a British Independent Film Award.

Matthew Perry

Romantic status: Still single.

Parental status: No kids.

Career status: At work on his new series "Mr. Sunshine," in which he stars as the manager of a sports arena. The show will debut mid-season on ABC.

Awards earned since "Friends" ended: A fourth Emmy nomination for his work in the TNT movie "The Ron Clark Story."


Lisa Kudrow

Romantic status: Celebrated her 15th wedding anniversary earlier this year to advertising executive Michel Stern.

Parental status: Has a 12-year-old son named Julian.

Career status: Most recently appeared in "Easy A."

Awards earned since "Friends" ended: Won a Gracie Allen Award for her work on HBO's "The Comeback."

Matt LeBlanc

Romantic status: Got a divorce from wife Melissa McKnight in 2006. Was reportedly dating his then-"Joey" co-star Andrea Anders. Currently single, as best as we can tell.

Parental status: Has a 6-year-old daughter named Marina from his marriage to McKnight.

Career status: Will play a version of himself on the Showtime series "Episodes," which is set to debut in January. (Makes me wonder if that recent blow-up at a Mirror reporter was real, or a Joaquin Phoenix-style stunt.)

Awards earned since "Friends" ended: Nominated for a Golden Globe for his work on "Joey" and won the People's Choice Award in 2005 for favorite male television star.

Jennifer Aniston

Um, seriously? Is a status update really needed here?

Matt LeBlanc was "[n]ominated for a Golden Globe for his work on 'Joey'"? Seriously?

I already thought David Schwimmer was a little creepy, but seeing him with a beard only magnifies that feeling.

Courtney's botoxed forehead is also kinda disturbing. If you're gonna do all that to make your face look flat, then wear high collars so your neck doesn't look doubly aged compared to your face. Just sayin'.

Shout-out to Lisa Kudrow for producing the summer series "Who Do You Think You Are?" about tracing celebrities' genealogies.

No kidding -- This makes winning one of these a bit of a dubious honor.
