Calling Mc­Daid her ‘part­ner’ is un­com­fort­able: Cox

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Ac­tor Courteney Cox says that she is un­com­fort­able calling her beau, mu­si­cian Johnny Mc­Daid, a “part­ner”.

The F.R.I.E.N.D.S star has said that the strug­gle comes from the fact that the term is used by peo­ple to call their same-gen­der lover in her home­town of Alabama, reports aceshow­biz.com.

Dur­ing an episode of Jimmy Kim­mel Live!, the ac­tor said that her boyfriend uses the word a lot. “He’s my part­ner, that’s what he calls it, ‘my part­ner’... I’m from Alabama, so you don’t re­ally say part­ner un­less you’re in the same sex... Say­ing part­ner is dif­fi­cult for me,” Cox told host Jimmy Kim­mel.

She said that the term has caused some con­fu­sion in the past. “I was in At­lanta not that long ago and I was like, ‘Oh, I’m sup­posed to meet my part­ner in sec­tion F,’ and they were like, ‘Oh, I’m sure she’s go­ing to be there, don’t worry about it’,” she laughed. “Not that it mat­ters, but it’s just a dif­fer­ent way to speak.”

Cox and Mc­Daid have been to­gether since Jan­uary 2014. They tem­po­rar­ily split in 2015 but they got back to­gether again the next year. Back in Oc­to­ber 2018, Cox coyly re­sponded to a ques­tion about their mar­riage plan by say­ing that they were mar­ried “in her heart”.
