Courteney Cox celebrated her 49th birthday with a star-studded bash on Saturday night (15.06.13).

The 'Cougar Town' star, whose divorce from David Arquette was recently finalised, was joined by her close friends including Isla Fisher, Molly Sims, Laura Dern and Tobey Maguire's jewellery designer wife Jennifer Meyer, at a party in Santa Monica, California.

The former 'Friends' star, who has an eight-year-old daughter, Coco, with David, shared a few pictures from the party on Twitter, including one of her with her famous friends with the caption: ''Dancin with my girls. (Sic)''

She also posted a picture of her with Coco, writing: ''Every birthday is perfect with my favourite girl.''

Other guests at the bash included Courteney's co-stars Christa Miller and Brian Van Holt, but her close pal Jennifer Aniston was noticeably absent.

Her ex-husband was also not at the party despite Courteney recently insisting that David is still her best friend.

She said: ''He's my best friend in the world. I love him.

''I appreciate David more now than I ever did. I mean ... it's hard. I don't recommend divorce in general, but, you know, he is my best friend and we've both grown and changed.''

The couple got together after meeting of the set of the first 'Scream' film in 1995 and married in 1999, before separating in October 2010 but only filed for divorce in June 2012 and it was finalised last month.
