Last night Laura Dern and Courteney Cox admitted they accompany each other to therapy occasionally. At the Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards, Laura said she brings Courteney to therapy sessions because she's better at pinpointing problems than her therapist. Later Courteney said she requests payback by having Laura return the favor — even by bringing her to couples therapy with husband David Arquette.
