(LOS ANGELES) -- Josh Hopkins, who plays Courteney Cox's boyfriend on Cougar Town, was surprised by the the rush of tabloid headlines about them caused by a simple day of sun and surf. The actor tells Access Hollywood he went to St. Barts with Cox and her daughter Coco, but pics of them frolicking at the beach didn't tell the full picture. "There were a lot of people with us," the actor explained, "but we're the only ones you see. They just [framed] us two, so it's a story. It's not true."
Hopkins admits to being flattered by the coverage about his co-star, however. "It's not like a terrible story to have out there," he says. "I mean, she's really hot. But it's just not true."
