Despite her ability to maintain a low-key lifestyle amidst the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, Courteney Cox-Arquette is not one to shield her everyday struggles from the public.

“So the whole world knows I had miscarriages,” she reveals to the Los Angeles Times. “And yes, I’ve done in vitro however many times — three times. Yes, I’ve said that [my husband] David [Arquette] and I go to therapy.” Noting that “nothing’s too precious for me,” the 45-year old actress admits that although she often wishes she could keep more personal information to herself, it’s just not in her nature.

That said, while her frankness has become expected in interviews, Courteney laughs that some aspects of her life are better left unreported! “Recently my daughter [Coco Riley] had lice. Wasn’t fun. Became a big outbreak in the house,” she says. Unfortunately, when Courteney stopped off to stock up on supplies to fight the lice, prying paparazzi were in hot pursuit.

The effects motherhood have had on Courteney reach far beyond what she could have ever imagined. After welcoming Coco, now 5, the protective mama jokes she has a newfound sympathy for all living things — including the flora and fauna in front of her house! The actress still hasn’t landscaped her yard because she can’t stand to kill the plants already growing there.

“I can’t tell you how much time I think about taking up the plants that don’t really work anymore,” she explains.

Courteney’s new show, Cougar Town, premieres September 23rd at 9:30 p.m. on ABC.
