Courteney Cox has admitted in the past to “trying” Botox, but if you’ve seen her recently, it’s obvious that she’s gone a lot further than that. You can’t tell so much from the most recent still photos of Courteney we have, but in a new interview on Ellen I was so surprised to see only her lower lip move. (That video is here.) She’s done a lot to her face, and it’s obvious. Well, the good news is that she’s not denying it. In a cover interview with New You Magazine, Courtney cops to laser treatment on her face and skin, and says she’s “game for anything,” and “very open to trying to prolong the inevitable.” She also admits she’s afraid of aging. Well, at least she’s being somewhat honest. I feel sorry for her more than anything else.
On laser treatments
“You know what, I’m game for anything. I’m very open to trying to prolong the inevitable,” the single star admits. “I’m a big laser believer — I really think they are the wave of the future. I just did Ulthera, which is supposed to produce collagen, and I’m about to do Fraxel, which will get rid of all these brown spots off my arms, chest and face.”
On drinking a ton of water
“I’m on this kick where I’m gonna try to drink 64 ounces a day. It’s so hard,” the actress says. “I can get the first 32 down, no problem. That second bottle is tough but when I do, I feel different.”
On turning 50
“That’s gonna be brutal,” she tells the magazine. “I’m not that interested in that! That sounds different. It feels different. I think it’s hard, the fact that there’s a certain age that we can’t have kids anymore. My doctor told me today that he just delivered a baby and the woman was 48. It’s like, that’s awesome, but it’s rare. It’s a miracle, you know?”
“My biggest fear is that it catches up to you so quickly, it’s almost like you wake up and you’ve changed. You can be rocking along in your life and then it just happens.”
“Beauty has always been a big part of my childhood and my life. My mother is a very beautiful woman — she wasn’t a career woman, she’s a mother of four — and looks were really important to her. She’s always been into vitamins and creams and she’s never had any plastic surgery. She’s just aged beautifully and naturally,” Cox tells New You. “My dad was into looks as well, so I grew up with a family that cared a lot about that. It’s a little hard because you think Hollywood is tough — well, it was pretty tough in my own family!”
Though she takes pride in her appearance, the Alabama native insists she feels most beautiful when she’s au naturale. “I feel the best after I’ve worked out, when I have no make-up on and my skin is flushed.”
I don’t think Courteney has only done laser skin resurfacing. I think she’s had fillers in her lips and in her cheeks and that’s why she’s looking so plastic lately, but you know, she’s telling us where it’s coming from. She’s saying that she’s afraid of getting older and seeing that face in the mirror, and that’s why she’s creating a new face for herself. Personally, I would be more afraid of looking like a Real Housewife and like a different person than I would be to see some wrinkles. The wrinkles do suck, though, I’ll admit it. I’m just so scared to do something about it and wonder who is looking back at me in the mirror. I’d rather see “old” me than “different forever,” no takebacks.
