Courteney Cox “didn’t realize” how “strange” she looked after undergoing cosmetic procedures and wasn’t surprised that people used to talk about her looks.
The 57-year-old actress admitted she initially tried to fight looking older with various “injections” and other treatments but eventually realized she went “crazy” and is now trying to age gracefully.
She said: “There was a time when you go, ‘Oh, I’m changing. I’m looking older.’ And I tried to chase that [youthfulness] for years.
“And I didn’t realize that, oh s***, I’m actually looking really strange with injections and doing stuff to my face that I would never do now.”
Musing on whether to post a photo on Instagram of those days compared to now, she added to Sunday Times Style magazine: “I’d say, ‘The day you realize what your friends were talking about.’
Because people would talk about me, I think. But there was a period where I went, ‘I’ve got to stop. That’s just crazy.’ ”
While she has given up cosmetic procedures, Courteney loves trying new products because she still puts a lot of “intense” pressure on herself to look good.
She said: “The scrutiny is intense, but I don’t know if it could be more intense than what I put on myself.
“I’m a product whore. I will try anything.”
The former ‘Friends’ star “can’t believe” her next milestone birthday will be 60.
Courteney Cox said: “Oh God, it’s so hard to even hear or say. I can’t believe it. There’s nothing wrong with being 60, I just can’t believe it. Time goes so fast.
“There’s no question that I am more grounded, I’ve learned so much in my life — what to enjoy, what to try to do more of and what to let go of.”
The ‘Scream’ actress – who is engaged to 45-year-old Johnny McDaid and has 17-year-old daughter Coco with her ex-husband, David Arquette – still feels like she’s “young” and doesn’t worry about being older than so many of her friends.
She said: “I feel like I’m young. I have a lot of friends in their thirties and I don’t think about it. To me, we’re the same age until I actually study it.”
