Courteney Cox says that fillers are not her friend.
The 58-year-old actress revealed her beauty secrets and cosmetic mistakes on Tuesday’s episode of “Gloss Angeles beauty podcast.”
When asked what her biggest beauty regret was, the “Friends” star didn’t hesitate to say she went too far with fillers.
“It’s a domino effect,” he told podcasters Kirbie Johnson and Sara Tan. “You don’t realize you look a little out of place, so you keep doing more, because you look normal.
“You look in the mirror and say, ‘That looks good.’ You think, and you don’t realize, what the person outside looks like.”
According to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, dermal fillers are “gel-like substances” that are injected under the skin to add volume and smooth wrinkles. They can also be used to enhance the contours of the face.
As Hollywood and cosmetic maintenance go hand in hand, more and more stars (including Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz and Paulina Porizkova) they are talking against persecuting youth through Botox and fillers.
Cox ultimately opted to remove or dissolve the padding, saying, “Thank God they’re removable.”
The “Scream” actress also said that she had thought about posting before and after photos of herself, one fully filled in and the other once it had been removed. But her publicist wouldn’t let her.
“I look at pictures of myself when I thought I looked good,” she added, “and I can’t believe it.”
This isn’t the first time the Emmy-nominated actress has opened up about her struggles with cosmetic procedures. In February 2022, she told the sunday time that she hated the constant speculation about her appearance: “The scrutiny is intense, but I don’t know if it can be more intense than what I wear.”
Hearing people talk about it eventually led to removing the padding.
“There was a moment where you say, ‘Oh, I’m changing. I look older. And I tried to chase that youth for years,” she said. “And I didn’t realize that, oh, s—, I actually look really weird with injections and doing things to my face that I would never do now.”
Cox told Johnson and Tan that he wasn’t just sorry about the fillers.
“To think that I was getting older when I was very young, that’s just a bummer, a waste of time,” he said. “I messed up a lot and luckily I was able to reverse most of that. And now I’m just older.”
