Courteney Cox regrets the fact that she did plastic surgery, and admits that she looked horrible. The 52-year-old actress opened up on “Running Wild with Bear Grylls” on Monday that she did a lot of surgeries just to look younger. Could she have been jealous of how youthful her co-star Jennifer Aniston had been?
The “Friends” alum talked about the issue of aging in Hollywood, People reports. The actress-producer was in Ireland for the show.
“I have done things that I regret, and luckily they’re things that dissolve and go away, so that’s good, because that’s not always been my best look,” Courteney Cox said about her cosmetic procedures.
Cox however did not disclose which procedure or procedures she underwent. She said that she was occasionally disappointed with the results, USA Today reports.
Ageing gracefully in Hollywood was unthinkable for the actress. Cox said that being a woman in Hollywood and getting older is not easy.
However, Cox added that her trying to keep up with getting older has given her life lessons. Now she has a new motto to “just let it be.”
“I was trying to keep up with getting older and trying to chase that [youth],” said Courteney Cox. The actress became famous for her role as Monica Geller on “Friends” from 1994 to 2004.
She then starred in “Cougar Town” from 2009 to 2015. Courteney Cox is not alone to have given in to the pressures of staying youthful and looking good in Hollywood.
The pressure is so huge that actresses have spent billions of dollars on injections, human growth hormones, and plastic surgery to keep their skin youthful. Courteney Cox said that she does not feel burdened by the pressures of being a celeb however she added that people can be nasty on social media.
Courteney’s co-star Renée Zellweger wrote an op-ed in August on the subject of appearance-related criticism. Her friend and co-star Jennifer Aniston also got to a point where she was fed up with pregnancy rumors and body shaming.
