The actress insists she never believed the romance reports and reveals that the gossip left her feeling angry.
Busy Philipps was left fuming after reading false reports linking her "Cougar Town" co-stars Courteney Cox and Brian Van Holt - insisting the lurid gossip about the pair made her "mad". Cox's relationship with husband David Arquette was put under the spotlight earlier this month after a photograph of the former "Friends" actress spending time with her TV co-star led to speculation about an affair.
Arquette subsequently brushed aside the false rumors, insisting the couple's marriage is "really great", and Philipps has now spoken out, insisting she never believed the reports and the gossip left her feeling angry. She tells Britain's OK! magazine, "I think people realized pretty quickly there was nothing behind that picture. I mean, we all hang out together all the time... I've hung out with Brian - does that mean we're f**king? No! Courteney and David aren't going anywhere!"
"I was mad, though. I'm on Twitter and I really wanted to write something about it, but my husband was like, 'Don't because it will get reported.'"
