As a guarded individual, Courtney Cox doesn’t open up to many. But there’s a certain friend she tends to go to for advice and support.

“There are a few people that I would go to,” Cox, 42, told People magazine Monday night at an event she hosted at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles to benefit the EB Medical Research Foundation. “But I would say my mom and Jennifer Aniston.”

Cox wants to have another baby with goofy husband David Arquette. The pair was on hand to support a family friend whose child suffers from Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), an incurable genetic disorder that affects about 25,000 people in the U.S. and causes skin to become as fragile and easily torn as tissue paper.

Why has Cox become another celebrity actually using her fame for good?

“This horrible genetic problem that no one knows about — there’s not enough awareness out there,” she said. “I feel so fortunate because David and I — having Coco, we were so blessed. I would say that that’s where my heart is most.”

Cox is also the spokesperson for Kinerase Clear Skin Collection and Vitamins, which, through the end of October, is donating 5 percent of proceeds to the EB Medical Research Foundation.
