The 47-year-old actress has starred in three series of `Cougar Town` - which follows the exploits of a divorced woman who dates much younger men - and as she is already attracted to guys who are not in her age range, she hasn`t ruled out becoming more like her character Jules Cobb.
Courteney - who split from husband David Arquette, 40, last year - said: "It depends on your definition of cougar [whether I am one]. I was married for all of those years to a man seven years younger than me so obviously I`m attracted to younger men.
"I` not being a cougar right now, but we`ll see what my future holds."
Courteney and David have a seven-year-old daughter Coco and the actress is pleased with how well the youngster has coped with her parents` split.
She told Britain`s HELLO! magazine: "She`s dealing with it very well indeed, although she has a lot of questions about what`s going on.
"We have a long drive from our home on the beach to her school - it`s a good 45 or 50 minutes - and that`s a time we use to talk about all sorts of things, like friendships, love and what she`s going through with David and myself. I think communication is key here and I try to keep the channels open."
