COURTENEY Cox has spoken candidly about cosmetic procedures she has undergone.
The Friends star says she has regrets about some of the decisions she has made.
Has Courteney Cox had plastic surgery?
The 56-year-old actress – who will appear in the Friends reunion special – admits she’s had work done and has said she spent too much time in the past being worried about her appearance.
“Well, what would end up happening is that you go to a doctor who would say, ‘You look great, but what would help is a little injection here or filler there,'” she told New Beauty in 2017.
“So you walk out and you don’t look so bad and you think, no one noticed -it’s good. Then somebody tells you about another doctor: ‘This person’s amazing. They do this person who looks so natural.’
“You meet them and they say, ‘You should just do this.’ The next thing you know, you’re layered and layered and layered.
“You have no idea because it’s gradual until you go, ‘Oh s**t, this doesn’t look right.’
“And it’s worse in pictures than in real life. I have one friend who was like, ‘Whoa, no more!’ I thought, I haven’t done anything in six months. I didn’t realize.”
Cox added during the interview that she had all her fillers “dissolved” and that now “I’m as natural as I can be.”
“I feel better because I look like myself,” she told New Beauty.
“I think that I now look more like the person that I was. I hope I do. Things are going to change. Everything’s going to drop.
“I was trying to make it not drop, but that made me look fake.
“You need movement in your face, especially if you have thin skin like I do. Those aren’t wrinkles – they’re smile lines. I’ve had to learn to embrace movement and realize that fillers are not my friend.”
Cox says she does Pilates and “started doing electrical stimulation workouts” with her trainer. She also runs and plays tennis.
When asked about growing older in Hollywood, she said that “getting older is just hard in general.”
“I feel like I’m 34, so the thought that I’m not just doesn’t seem natural,” she told New Beauty.
“I don’t get it. I feel better than I’ve ever felt in my entire life. I take much better care of myself now.
“But Hollywood – this business – makes it harder. I grew up thinking that appearance was the most important thing.
“That’s kind of sad because it got me in trouble. I was trying so hard to keep up, and I actually made things worse.”
