Courteney Cox has a good reason for taking a more natural approach to aging.
The “Friends” alum, 54, spoke to People magazine about her move to dissolve her fillers about two years ago.
“You have to accept getting older, and that’s something that I had a hard time doing,” Cox told the outlet.
Jennifer Aniston’s close pal said she turned to fillers after not being “pleased with myself and the way I looked.” But they eventually resulted in a face that she didn’t recognize.
“I didn’t realize it until one day I kind of stepped back and went, ‘Oh, (expletive). I don’t look like myself,” she admitted.
Today, Cox is less resistant to the ticking of the clock. She has become the face of L’Oréal Paris’ Superior Preference #OWNINGIT campaign.
“Now I just embrace who I am and getting older with what God gave me, not what I was trying to change,” she said.
Cox previously opened up about her regret over cosmetic procedures in a 2016 episode of “Running Wild with Bear Grylls.”
“Just being a woman in this business… getting older is not the easiest,” she told her host.
“You find yourself trying, and then you look at a picture of yourself and go ‘Oh, God, I look horrible,’ ” she added.
At the time, Cox said she had adopted a “new motto”: “Just let it be.”
