Courtney Cox shared her regret for “doing stuff in my face” as she admitted she had “tried to chase” youth for years.
The actress, 57, has opened up about when she realized how “strange” her face looked after receiving injections.
She said The Sunday Times’ Style magazine: “There was a time when you were like, ‘Oh, I’m changing. I look older.’ And I tried to chase it away [youthfulness] for years.
“And I didn’t realize that, oh shit, I look really, really weird with injections and I do stuff on my face that I would never do now.”
Cox, who is the mother of 17-year-old daughter Coco, added: “Because people would talk about me, I think. But there was a period where I was like, ‘I have to stop. C is just crazy.”
Elsewhere in the interview, she said she “can’t believe” she’ll be 60 in a few years because “time flies so fast.”
the Friends star noted that while there’s “nothing wrong” with reaching the benchmark age, it’s still “so hard to hear or say.”
She described herself as now more “grounded”, having “learned so much in my life”.
The actress, who shot to fame in the 1990s playing the iconic role of Monica Geller, has previously said she wishes she’d never tried to go back in terms of beauty.
In 2017, she told New Beauty that she had decided to dissolve all her fillers to look more natural.
Expanding on its decision in 2019 to People magazine, she said, “I would say it’s a common thing that you go through as you get older, especially in Hollywood.
“You have to accept getting older, and that’s something I struggled with. [I tried] to track time in a way that was more than maintenance.
“I didn’t realize it until one day I stepped back and said, ‘Oh shit. I don’t look like me.'”
