Courteney Cox, Johnny McDaid Look "Smitten" on Film Festival Date, Brag About Her Daughter Coco
Is this the look of love? Courteney Cox brought boyfriend Johnny McDaid as her date to the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival Celebration on Monday, March 17, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., where the happy couple engaged in a little red carpet PDA.
The Cougar Town actress, 49, looked "amazing" in a dark gray top tucked into a sexy, forest-green leather miniskirt, an onlooker tells Us Weekly. "Everyone was commenting on how gorgeous and youthful she looked," the eyewitness says, adding that she was "glowing" as she posed with Snow Patrol rocker McDaid, 37.
The lovebirds held hands throughout the night, and were never far apart, the source says. "She had a huge grin on her face and seems so in love with him," the onlooker tells Us. "Johnny seems equally as mesmerized with Courteney. They both looked smitten by one another. It was obvious they're really happy together."
Indeed, Cox herself told Us Weekly on the red carpet that she's loving life at the moment. "I am happy," she gushed. "Life is good! Everything is great all the way around!"
Asked about the most romantic thing McDaid had done for her recently, she quipped, "Spending St. Patrick's Day with me here. [It's] very Irish here. It feels very Irish." (Guests at the bash feasted on corned beef sliders, fish 'n' chips, Irish champ mashed potatoes, Irish soda bread, and Bailey's martinis.)
The Friends alum also raved about her 9-year-old daughter, Coco, from her marriage to David Arquette. "I mean, Coco always amazes me...She's really growing up and she's...I don't know," she said. Then, turning to McDaid to finish her sentence, she asked, "What's new?"
"She's a much better musician than I am," he chimed in of Coco. "Much better!" Added Cox: "You know what? She has a beautiful voice! She loves to sing anything from boy band songs to John Legend."
