Friends star Courteney Cox revealed she’s “not a fan of fillers” after her fear of aging led her to go too far with them.
In an interview with People Magazine, Courteney Cox, 54, said she began getting injectable fillers because she “wasn’t pleased with myself and the way I looked.”
“I would say it’s a common thing you go through as you age, especially in Hollywood,” Cox said. “You have to accept getting older, and that’s something I had a hard time doing.”
Cox says she didn’t realize she had gone too far until one day she looked in the mirror and didn’t recognize her own reflection.
She “tried to keep up with time in a way that was anything other than maintenance,” she said. “I didn’t realize it until one day I kind of stepped back and went, ‘Oh s—. I don’t look like myself.”
Since that moment nearly two years ago, she’s stopped using fillers and has become more comfortable embracing who she is “and getting older with what God gave me, not what I was trying to change.”
“I think I am at a stage of my life where it’s very easy to be comfortable with who I am and who I’ve become and who I strive to be,” she added.
