While most Tinseltown splits tend to get messy, David Arquette had nothing but wonderful things to say about his ex-wife Courteney Cox during his interview on “Watch What Happens Live.”

The “Scream” stud praised his former “Friends” flame, noting they’ve been on great terms since going their separate ways.

“We just really dealt with it in a very sweet and honorable way. I don't know. We just love each other. Even though the relationship didn't work out, we wanted to still remain friends and treat each other with respect and have a great relationship for our daughter.”

Furthermore, "In the negotiating process of a divorce, we did it with a mindful head: 'What are you cool with?' 'OK, I'm cool with that, too.' There it is. There was no hair pulling."

From there, David played a game of “Arquette Roulette” in which a needle was spun to land on various names. When Cox came up, Arquette stated, "She's from Alabama. I don't know if a lot of people know that. Not that that's scandalous! She actually is such a sweet person. She doesn't do anything wrong, I guess."

And when Drew Barrymore came up, David shared, "We used to date when we were very young kids. Well, not little kids! It lasted for a while… She's just one of the sweetest, kindest people in Hollywood. She always has been, and she always will be. She's just a lovely, sweet person. We used to run around and just be silly."
