The 48-year-old actress showed off her graceful beauty for the James White shot front page while dishing about everything from her NBC classic "Friends" to her current work efforts.

Highlights from Miss Cox's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Fairlady!

On changing the material for 'Cougar Town':
"Some people were offended by a show about cougars. Personally, I didn't have a problem with it. I thought sexually it was pretty bold and out there - I liked that - but to appeal to the masses, the focus had to shift, so now it's not about my life with younger men, it's my life with friends."

On if she watches 'Friends' anymore:
"I'm just starting to watch it again because my daughter likes to watch it, and I'm looking at it and thinking, 'That's just hysterical.' It was such a great show."

On whether she misses work on 'Friends':
"I miss the people. But I love what I'm doing now. I'm more involved. Back then I just showed up and did my best, but I wasn't producing. It was the greatest job in the world, of course. I mean, how lucky were all of us?"

On how she thinks her parents divorcing when she was age 10 made her stronger:
"In some ways I grew up faster. We didn't have much money so I got a job when I was 13. I learnt to take care of myself."
