Courteney Cox says her biggest beauty regret is fillers: ‘I messed up a lot’

Courteney Cox is speaking out about her worst beauty regret.

On March 7, the 58-year-old actor appeared on the “Gloss LA” beauty podcast and discussed her past and current beauty routine.

The former “Friends” star promptly replied, “Fillers,” when co-hosts Kirbie Johnson and Sara Tan asked her to name and explain her biggest beauty regret.

She said getting the initial treatment created a “domino effect” that caused her to get more fillers.

“You don’t realize that you look a little off, so then you keep doing more because you look normal to yourself,” Cox explained. “And you look in the mirror and go, ‘Oh, that looks good.’ You don’t realize what it looks like to the outside person.”

The Scream star acknowledged to hosts Kirbie Johnson and Sara Tan Christensen that she had too many fillers injected.

“Thank god they are removable,” Courteney said. “I think I messed up a lot and now, luckily, I was able to reverse most of that. Now, I’m actually just older.”

Cox continued, “I look at pictures of me when I thought I looked OK, and I can’t believe it.”

She said she considered uploading before and after pictures from her filler treatment with the caption, “Oh, this is what my friend was talking about,” referring to a friend who tried to warn her about overdoing it.

Cox first opened up about her plastic surgery regrets during a 2016 episode of NBC’s Running Wild. “I think there’s a pressure to maintain [your looks] not just because of fame, but just being a woman in this business,” she told host Bear Grylls. “Getting older, I don’t think that’s the easiest thing. But I have learned lessons. I think I was trying to keep up with getting older and trying to chase that. It’s something you can’t keep up with.”

She went on: “Sometimes you find yourself trying, and then you look at a picture of yourself and you go, ‘Oh God, I look horrible.’ I have done things that I regret, and luckily there are things that dissolve and go away. So that’s good because it’s not always been my best look.” She later confirmed she had all her facial fillers dissolved in 2017.

In a 2022 interview with The Sunday Times, Cox said too many fillers made her look “really strange.” 

“There was a time when you go, ‘Oh, I’m changing. I’m looking older,'” Cox told The Times. “And I didn’t realize that, oh shit, I’m actually looking really strange with injections and doing stuff to my face that I would never do now.”
