Following the recent emergence of vacation photos of Cougar Town actor Josh Hopkins with costar Courteney Cox and her 6-year-old daughter Coco, Hopkins is now setting the record straight about the exact nature of their relationship.
“There [were] a lot of people with us, but we’re the only ones you see [in the photos],” Hopkins, 40, tells Access Hollywood about the getaway that set off a media frenzy. “They just frame us two, so it’s a story. It’s not true.”
