When asked about her lover, the Friends actress said that McDaid is:
“…a fantastic listener. And I’ve never met somebody who was more patient. He’s a terrific source of counsel. I like his heart and his aspirations. His values. He’s really gifted and clearly musical, but he’s also a poet and writer. He’s simply very clever, which I find extremely se*y. And then there’s the fact that he’s stunning.”
When questioned about the couple’s wedding plans, Cox said:
“I’m not sure. I’m not averse to that at all. I just don’t consider it.”
