Cox revealed that Coco often questions her about kissing Cougar Town co-star Josh Hopkins on screen, as she is only used to seeing her mother with her real-life father and Cox's estranged husband David Arquette.
"She shouldn't watch Cougar Town, but she does," Cox told US Weekly.
"She's always like, 'Mommy! Did you really kiss Josh?' And I'm like, 'I'm just faking it!'"
In March 2011, Cox denied suggestions that she and Hopkins were romantically involved, insisting that they were simply "good friends".
The former Friends actress split from Arquette in October 2010 after 11 years of marriage. He has since fallen in love with TV reporter Christine McLarty.
