Courteney Cox and David Arquette

Separated

10/11/2010 7:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Courteney Cox and David Arquette have separated after 11 years of marriage ... and TMZ has learned they've been separated for several months.

Separated
A source close to the couple tells us the two are "still friends" and they maintain a business relationship with each other. In fact, sources tell us ... no lawyers are involved.

The couple has one child together.

David and Courteney met on the set of "Scream" sometime around 1995 ... and were married in 1999. They are currently co-starring in the upcoming "Scream" movie due out next year.

There was a hint of things to come back on September 25 when Arquette was spotted out, sans wedding ring.

UPDATE: The couple has released a statement saying, "We have agreed to a trial separation that dates back for some time. The reason for this separation is to better understand ourselves and the qualities we need in a partner and for our marriage."

The statement continues, "We remain best friends and responsible parents to our daughter and we still love each other deeply."

What is interesting is that . . . these two just didn't seem like that good of a fit to begin with. She seems rather driven and he seems rather laid back. So in the end . . . it is TRUE - OPPOSITES DO ATTRACT - they just don't stay T O G E T H E R !

Wow! I honestly thought this was one that would absolutely go the distance and I'm hoping the separation helps them. Just because they are separated doesn't mean it's over. I've been married 40 years. Sometimes younger people don't understand what it takes to have longevity in a relationship nor do they care.

"We have agreed to a trial separation that dates back for some time. The reason for this separation is to better understand ourselves and the qualities we need in a partner and for our marriage.".......After 11 years they don't have a handle on that??

I wonder if Courteney going back to a weekly tv series had anything to do with it.

Maybe he finally got scared of her freakish, newly "improved" face.
