The Friends star, who is usually protective of her private life, has opened up about the fact she has still not seen her boyfriend, Johnny McDaid. 

She shared a screenshot of the pair catching up over a Zoom date on Instagram on Friday 24 July. To add to the frustration of living apart, they are also living in different time zones (he is in London, while she is in Los Angeles).

Cox captioned the photo: “It’s been 133 days since we were last together. Covid sucks. Happy Birthday J. I loved our lunch/dinner. (LA/London time) Zoom date today. I miss you madly. #myone.”

Her honest words will be reassuring for anyone else who is going through a similar situation right now. It’s easy to think that, with lockdown restrictions easing, most people are being reunited with their loved ones. But, as Cox proves, that’s not the case – even for high profile celebrities.

So, take some comfort in knowing that you are not alone in being, well… alone.
