Star: Courteney Cox is getting a ton of plastic surgery ahead of her wedding


These are some photos of Courteney Cox out and about on September 17th. Yes, it could just be that the natural light was at an awkward angle, and yes, maybe CC was just feeling a little bit bloated that day. Except we know already that Courteney has been messing up her face for a while now. Back in August, we discussed some photos of Cox at a premiere in LA, and it looked like she was fresh from getting a ton of fillers injected into her face. It’s always particularly sad in Courteney’s case because she truly was a naturally beautiful woman. Is it LA? Is it a self-esteem issue? Is it trying to look the same age as her younger lovers? I don’t know. But apparently it’s gotten worse as Courteney tries to prepare for her wedding with Johnny McDaid.

Every bride wants to look her best when she floats down the aisle, but sources claim Friends star Courteney Cox, who’s been engaged to Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid since June 2014, is taking her prewedding makeover to the extreme splashing out a whopping $100,000 on boot camps, surgery and detox retreats. But is it doing more harm than good? Witnesses were aghast when they spotted the actress eating lunch—or trying to—at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Sept. 17.

“Courteney was barely recognizable!” dishes a diner. “Her face looked painfully swollen, to the point where it was hard for her to eat her salad, and her lips were huge!”

But those close to the 51-year-old bride state that she refuses to fess up to all the work she’s had done to prepare for the big day, even though the proof is written all over her face.

“It’s pretty clear that she’s gone overboard—and ironically, she looks older than if she’d just stopped at a little bit of Botox,” says a friend, adding that Courteney isn’t done at the docs just yet. “One of Hollywood’s hottest surgeries at the moment is the contour thread lift, and Courteney wants it right away. Threads are inserted into the face to create a lift. The recovery time is minimal, and you can see results immediately.”

Unfortunately, poorly done thread lifts can result in a “Joker smile,” and pals are trying to talk her out of it. But with her nuptials scheduled for the end of the year in Johnny’s native Northern Ireland, they say that Courteney isn’t being conservative—or truthful—about her nips and tucks.

“Not even Johnny knows how many procedures she’s had,” claims the source. “She’ll say she’s having a girl’s weekend away, but she’s really having work done.” Even more, sources add that Courteney’s clocking daily workouts and planning even more surgery before she ties the knot with Johnny. Yikes!

[From Star Magazine]

While the “insider” sounds like a judgy bitch, I can’t say that the insider is telling any lies. Imagine how fresh and pretty Courteney would look if she had never touched her face at all? She would have some lines around her eyes and… that’s about it. That’s honestly the big fear that women have – that they’ll have a few lines here and there. That they’ll look “good for their age.” Also, the “contour thread lift” sounds awful. It also sounds a lot like the “ribbon lift” that Madonna got about six years ago that made her look like a gargoyle. Don’t do it. Please.

    surgery to fix her face? should she wait for the last disaster to heal first?

    • Jules says:

      I thought it was a photo of Caitlyn Jenner at first!!! WTF

      • Kinta says:

        OMG! Me too!!!

      • Scarlet Vixen says:

        So did I!!!

        Girl has been ryining her face for YEARS, tho. It’s uncomfortably painful to watch her try to move her face. So sad.

      • funckes says:

        I was thinking Janice Dickenson

      • chaine says:

        I did too! Poor Courtney, she looks like she’s in her sixties in some of these pix.

      • TX Laney says:

        I thought so too

      • ShineBright says:

        Me too! I was glancing around the site and I thought “another story about Caitlyn je…oh wait””. WTF? Wow, just wow.

      • mandy says:

        I did too!
        This makes me so sad / mad- she had one of the most beautiful faces in Hollywood and she ruined it- Why don’t people ever learn ? Can’t they see and learn from other peoples messes?????

      • evermore says:

        Wow, NOT in a good way.
        She needs to stop!
        She was so pretty , why is she ruining her face?

      • Samtha says:

        Me too, but I felt bad about saying it.

      • Decorative Item says:

        Me also!

      • saras says:

        Eeek! I can’t believe how bad that surgery is! I thought back in the day she would age well because she had a cute look that usually does. Stay away from the surgeon unless you need it for medical issues: (

      • Wren says:

        Same! Poor woman.

      • laura in LA says:

        funckes, Janice Dickinson for sure! So many here in LA look like that, almost as if they all went to the same wretched butcher surgeon and are now a new race of their own…

        It’s horrifying and sad to see, but you get used to it here, whereas when my sister and BIL came to visit, they were aghast. And I actually had to tell them to stop staring, even if these people did do it to themselves.

        It’s probably Body Dysmorphic Disorder. Although it may already be too late for Courtney, I suspect this is why the insider is coming out with it here as a last attempt at intervention.

      • msw says:

        I thought “Lara Flynn Boyle,” another very attractive woman whose face looks like it’s melting. I know it’s her face, but I do worry a little about people who seem to go to such extremes to not look their age, when it doesn’t even work. You can’t get to 30 from 50.

      • Liberty says:

        me too. my god, how sad….

      • Lovein Ohio says:

        lol funckes I thought the same thing!! so very bad of her she should have stopped or not bothered to start on all the filler. She was beautiful before now she looks just as bad as JD.

    • Dana m says:

      She is starting to morph into the cat lady. So very sad.

      • bellenola says:

        Does anybody know what’s being done that makes the eyes look so cat-like and smaller?

      • Betsy says:

        @bellenola – I think it can be several things (bad lift, although we don’t see those much anymore, cheek implants, aggressive resurfacing swelling the tissue), but I think here it’s aggressive use of fillers pushing up against the eyes, shutting them from below.

      • Dhavynia says:

        It hurts to look at her face….

      • Belle Epoch says:

        What makes their mouths get all weird? I don’t mean lip injections, but the actual length of the mouth is too long, like a frog. It seems like they all have it.

        She looks BAAAAAAAAD.

        A therapist friend of mine wrote a book a long time ago called What Do You See When You Look in the Mirror? I did not know anything about body dysmorphia at the time. People actually cannot see what they really look like.

    • Jen says:

      I was thinking the same thing! She looks like she signed up for the Meg Ryan special. Except she was prettier than Meg to start with.

      • lisa2 says:

        Meg Ryan had such a wonderfully unique face. I think she was so beautiful in a very natural and real way. Sad that she didn’t see it.

    • LeAnn Stinks says:

      Wow, those pictures are both scary and sad at the same time.

  2. Izzy says:

    She looks awful. So sad.

    • Tate says:

      She really does. A naturally aging face is so much more attractive than this mess.

      • kcarp says:

        Of course it is natural. She has just been drinking a lot of water, chasing her pre-teen daughter, and being happy with her life. No plastic surgery here, move on please.

    • Shambles says:

      So, so sad. We’ve been talking a lot about feminism and the ladies’ struggle around here lately, and this story makes me think. I’m sure a lot of these women get injected and filled to holy hell because they want to stay young-looking enough to continue to get work in an extremely sexist and superficial industry. At the same time, it’s ladies like Helen Mirren and Meryl Streep that are getting all the roles, and they’re women who are said to have aged naturally, aged well, and are still considered attractive “for their age” (gross, not my opinion, just things I’ve heard said before).
      So basically, women are feeling the pressure to fill their faces with God knows what to compete for work, and in the end the work still goes to the ladies that have aged naturally and were simply blessed enough to still look like vampires on into their years. It’s just a sad, messed up situation over there in Hollyweird.

      • Kitten says:

        Agree with everything but I’d add that I think Meryl has had subtle work done (the key word being SUBTLE) because you know, it is possible to get fillers and look awesome. I have a couple friends who have gotten ‘tox or Resty and they look like they took a few years off their face, they do not look like a monster.

        I think women like Courtney just have too much f*cking money and too much time to look at themselves in the mirror or on the screen. It’s really sad.

      • Shambles says:

        I don’t doubt that it is possible to sample some injectibles and still look amazing , O’Kitt, but I guess being inundated with photos of all these frozen, subhuman people for most of my young life has turned me off of it completely. I’d be waaaay too paranoid that my face would end up frozen and waxy. And my hippy-dippy self doesn’t know how she feels about injecting medically unnecessary chemicals into herself. And my still-a-5-year-old self REALLY hates needles.

      • Kitten says:

        Yeah I totally agree that there’s something incredibly odd about injecting sh*t into your face but I’ll also say this: you are young, Shamblification. Talk to me in 10, 15 years 😉

        At almost-37 I definitely get why people end up tweaking. Personally, I love what growing older has meant for me professionally, emotionally, mentally etc. but physically it sucks balls. In my mind I still think of myself as so much younger than I am…it’s weird to think that 40 is looming on the horizon.

      • Shambles says:

        Oh I hear your, my Kitten Freundin. I’m not ruling anything out, because really and truly, ANYTHING could happen. That’s the beauty of life. At this point, though, I really just don’t know how I feel about it. Still forming my own opinions and such.

        And if it helps, I was really surprised the first time you mentioned your age. Not because your comments read as immature or anything like that, quite the opposite, actually. But rather because your life-loving, young-at-heart energy always comes through in your comments. I know “age is just a number” is way past chliche, but I truly believe that one can enjoy life a lot more when they realize that you don’t ALWAYS have to be a grown up. 😉 Ain’t nothing wrong with being young at heart.

        Random, off-topic edit: do you have any advice for getting a cat to stop meowing loudly and/or incessantly at inappropriate times? If it’s a lost cause, no worries. I still love my boy, even though he has no sense of boundaries and can’t pick up on social cues. 😉

      • Kitten says:

        I think it’s good to think that plastic surgery isn’t the route you want to go, believe me. Hopefully you never change your mind.

        Oh thanks, Shamby. It doesn’t help that I dress a lot younger than my age and probably act a lot younger than I should.

        Oh man..I feel your pain so much about your cat and I wish I had some advice, but sadly I’m going through the same thing with my youngest. You have a boy cat? I think it might be a boy cat thing-they are all about dominance. My older girl kitty is like my soul mate when it comes to living in harmony. We just get each other, respect each other’s space, know when to leave the other one alone. My little boy cat is ALWAYS meowing. He wakes me up in the morning and will not stop until he gets fed.

        When you say “boundaries” what exactly is he doing?

      • siri says:

        I agree. The aging- gracefully-brigade also most of the times happens to be the more talented one from the start (Mirren, Streep, Viola Davis, Judy Dench etc.), women, who are not typecast as the pretty accessory. Simply because they don’t fit into the idea of movie-beautiful. Perhaps they figured out early on that they have to work extra hard on their craft to succeed in this phony environment…Anyway, it’s sad when women bow to the pressure of an industry so much that they change their whole features. If at all, they should do it for themselves.

      • noway says:

        Okay I am now closer to my fifties, and it makes me sad that so many women feel this is what they have to do to be attractive. Yes it is all their choice, but society makes us think that this is beauty. I prefer just trying to be healthy. I have never tried botox or fillers, because funny thing is even at this age my five year old self reappears and doesn’t want a needle and chemicals in my skin too. I would be the one ending up on botched plastic surgery, so better to let it be. I don’t know I look at some older women with their lines and see such beauty and I just wish the world did in general. You can be beautiful at all ages.

      • siri says:

        @noway: I LOVE your comment, and your view on this subject! I feel very much the same. Health is the one thing that concerns me, and as long as I am fine in that regard, I’m happy. Sure, there are those days where I wonder what will happen next with my face/body, but I somehow cannot take it too serious. Because the alternative to getting (also visibly) older is…not overly appealing 😉

      • Liberty says:

        shambles — our cat does this, started when she was about 12 — is your boy older? Our vet said some cats as they age feel like they need extra reassurance or are lonely — ours is old enough that she may be getting a bit confused and calling for a past cat friend who died of old age a few years ago….hug him, try the Feliway spray, or do what we do and get great organic catnip and shake some into a low cardboard box or pillow bed — seems to calm her.

        Also have him checked — he may have a slight UTI and feel a bit in pain and need a round of antibiotics – first thing our vet checked, saying many cats start to “sing” for this reason. Good luck with your boy!

      • Liberty says:

        Shambles – PS – we did get a younger cat after our old boy died, and while she and the older are not soul mates, when the old one starts to mew in confusion the younger one goes over and washes her face and tries to play a bit, calming her. It is sweet, as otherwise the younger behaves like a big goofy dog.

      • Vet says:

        She is 51, she will never play a 30 year old again. We all know her age she is not going to play the daughter. This is so sad because she was so pretty and talented.

      • tigerlily says:

        Yes Meryl and Helen look amazing and for sure Meryl has had some very subtle work done. Agreed…subtle being key.

        When I think of how cute Courteney looked when she was in Springsteen’s “Dancing in the Dark” vid and the first years in Friends…..soo cute. She had great hair and she needs full hair or her face looks too skinny. And that’s the second problem…..she has gotten way too skinny. Again-she looked fab the first years of Friends then got into the black straight, do-nothing hair and too skinny. Now the fillers that make her eyes look like pi$$-holes in the snow. Just makes me sad.

        Makes me think of something attributed to Catherine Deneuve: she supposedly said that once a woman is over 40 she has to decide: face or body. She can keep her size nothing body but her face will suffer or she can gain a few pounds go up a dress size or 2 and still have a nice face. Courteney did not choose wisely

    • delorb says:

      Her body, her choice, but yeah, it is very sad to watch. I was thinking the same thing when I saw Christie Brinkley in her ads. Obviously work has been done. Obviously her body, her choice, but still sad.

      • OrigialTessa says:

        I think Christie Brinkley looks fantastic for 61 and not overdone. Done, sure… but not overdone if that makes sense. Let’s see how long that lasts though.

    • Carol says:

      She looks insane. Thing is that without anything done she will look older because she is 50! But at least she won’t look like the crazy cat lady or a 65 year old Beverly Hills woman.

  3. NewWester says:

    I honestly thought that was a photo of Caitlyn Jenner

    • GlimmerBunny says:

      She does look like Caitlyn!

    • Talita says:

      Same here! So sad, she was such a beautiful woman.

    • Zingara says:

      That’s exactly what I came to say, New Wester. They look like sisters, and that’s no compliment. Courtney’s eyes have shrunk and sunk right into her head, while her lips look like they’ve morphed into a beak. It’s very sad how so many actresses do this, but never know when to stop, or can’t see that the changes are not improvements.

    • Boston Green Eyes says:

      Actually, Caitlin looks much better than this. Courtney is now officially in Cat Woman territory.

    • Kitten says:

      Again, when women compulsively get plastic surgery they end up erasing all their original features. It’s bizarre how homogenous they all start to look.

    • AntiSocialButterfly says:

      When she smiles, her filler makes her look like Jocelyn Wildenstein, Jr.

  4. Dibba says:

    What a shame, I get she would have aged beautifully, naturally.

    • Jegede says:

      Courtney Cox was so beautiful.

      She could get away with any hairstyle, long, haircut, chignon. Those cheekbones. Those eyes.

      She has openly admitted to how looks was important to her (and her mum) when growing up Seeing her looks fade away probably damaged her psyche, and well, now to this.

      • dibba says:

        True. I was in high school when “Dancing in the Dark” video came out. Everyone got her haircut.

  5. BendyWindy says:

    Well the first picture looks like an alien and the third looks more like Courtney, so I think at least some of it is bad angles, lighting and goofy facial expression.

    • Zwella Ingrid says:

      I agree. The first unfortunate picture appears to be just a bad angle, because the others aren’t nearly as bad.

      • Mrs Odie says:

        That first photo is so horrifying. It doesn’t look like a real person. I’m so glad Courteney doesn’t seem to look like that first one. And yet, how did that photo come to be? She looks like the worst of the worst on a bad plastic surgery site. In the other photos, she looks more like herself. Her surgery self, but herself nonetheless. Whenever I look at her photos, I wonder, “How could her aged face possibly look WORSE than this?”

  6. Nancy says:

    My twelve year old daughter always has on the reruns of Friends. Courteney was so naturally pretty. By the 9th or last season, she started messing around with her face. Obviously now she looks like the cat women. I wonder if once you start doing this, you can’t stop, like shaving your legs! I can’t see how she looks in the mirror and sees the youth she is craving. David was younger than she, and now Johnny is much younger. Cher sang it best, If I Could Turn Back Time. You can’t Courteney. You can’t undo it, so I guess live with it. Ugh

    • smcollins says:

      I’m with you about seeing old Friends episodes and realizing just how much she’s messed that beautiful face. But I think the change in her face during the final season was because she was pregnant. But still…She was so incredibly beautiful and I have no doubt she would have aged beautifully as well if she would have allowed it. Such a shame.

      • Nancy says:

        Yep. There are things you can do subtly that don’t draw so much attention, but she went the full monty. Oh Lord forbid, but Joan Rivers used to say to start doing little things young…but we know how that worked out and now Melissa looks just like her, all creepy. She has what some might call the courage to date (and marry young men), wonder why she’s so insecure with her face. God people are so youth oriented in the country. She has to know she looks freakish, that’s what I don’t get….or Meg Ryan or Nicole Kidman, any of the Kardashians….foolish vain women.

    • Kitten says:

      Ok but to be fair Friends was what, 20 years ago? She’s not going to look the same at 50 as she did at 30. But I agree that it seems like she had so much natural beauty to work with. If anything, she had the type of facial structure that seemed like it would age very nicely. I just don’t understand why she’s gotten SO MUCH done.

    • SamiHami says:

      She was pregnant with Coco during the last season, that’s why her face looked off. Some women have some pretty major facial changes during pregnancy. I don’t think she had any work done on her face at that point (or at least it had been minimal) .Gillian Anderson was like that also. Her face got weirdly wide while she was pregnant, but went back to normal after childbirth.

      • Nancy says:

        Exactly @Kitten. She had the cheekbones, small nose and jawline. I think it would have worked out nicely for her. Even though Friends did end ten years ago, Aniston and Kudrow managed to age pretty well without a hacksaw. I truly believe these women who do this have a very low self-esteem.

        @SamiHami: If anything, during pregnancy, I think the face has a tendency to bloat like everything else. But, like I said my kid watches the reruns all the time and I noticed her morphing throughout. I think she started experimenting and then went the Frankenstein route. Wow that picture of her up top is frightening, they picked the worst one, but the lens doesn’t lie…poor thing.

    • noway says:

      I think with some people they do a bit and it looks better, and then they just keep doing more thinking they will look even better but it starts to look unreal. Then you are either trying to change it or you have totally lost perspective of what you looked like. As I have dyed my hair for so many years and my hair is now pretty grey not sure what my natural color mostly was. That is just hair, can’t imagine with the face.

  7. OTHER RENEE says:

    She’s reaching Lara Flynn Boyle territory (a truly tragic soul).

    • funckes says:

      Wow, I remember her on Twin Peeks and she was such a natural beauty. When started out she was so down to earth then Hollywood got a hold of her. She started screwing with her face when she was on the Practice. Then it went down hill after dating Jack Nickleson. The filler went out of hand her face collapsed.

      • dibba says:

        Laura Flynn Boyle! So beautiful. Courtney looks like Laura and Janice Dickinson had a baby.

    • lucy2 says:

      Both such beautiful women. There’s something really sad about trying to cling to that, and making it even worse than just regular aging.

  8. MrsBPitt says:

    CC could play the joker in the next Batman movie at the rate she is going with this plasitc surgery!

    • Granger says:

      FWIW, I don’t think Aniston has had much done either. (I know she had a nose job years ago — I just mean she seems relatively filler-free, based on her forehead and eyes, and the lines from her nose to her mouth.)

      • LAK says:

        Aniston seems to have relaxed her filler/botx regime once she started dating Justin. She’s still all about artifice, but not of the plastic kind.

      • Nancy says:

        Jennifer is Greek and has good genes. Plus with all the water the women drinks, she should have good skin. I wonder if Courteney is aware of her appearance….she has to know, but why keeping doing it.

  9. Granger says:

    Okay, a lot of what makes that first photo frightening is the bad lighting. Because there’s a huge difference between that photo and the last one, where she has her back to the camera and is looking over her shoulder.

    But she’s definitely had/having too much work done, and her chipmunk cheeks have changed the shape of her face dramatically. It really is sad.

  10. Jem says:

    Mrs. Potato Head. Comes with interchangeable bits and super glue. So so sad

  11. minxx says:

    So sad. She is such a beautiful woman, no need for surgery.

  12. CariBean says:

    She’s starting to resemble Janice Dickenson, especially in that top pic.

  13. j. eyre says:

    LA is a daily reminder of the value people can put on youth and beauty, certainly.

    • LAK says:

      We’ve discussed this in the past, but that’s why I left LA. The day some well meaning person gave me the number to her dr and I found myself thinking it was a good idea….time to get out of dodge!!!!

      • j.eyre says:

        I remember that story, LAK. I keep eyeing the implant packages and thinking about how nice it would be to reintroduce my breasts to their former location on my chest.

  14. LAK says:

    I refuse to believe the woman in the above photos is CC.

    I won’t and I shan’t

    • Armenthrowup says:

      Word, sista. **in denial** 😀

    • frisbee says:

      I didn’t recognise her either she’s going the way of Jocelyn Wildenstein. It’s concerning because Plastic Surgery can become an addiction,

      “Men and women who compulsively go ‘under the knife’ suffer from underlying mental or emotional issues and they use surgery as their outlet. They often don’t realize this and act out instead of seeking help. There are no laws denying people from receiving consecutive cosmetic surgeries and if the patient has money to pay for the surgery most doctors will perform the surgery. There are few regulations on the amount of procedures a person can have, so addicts continue being operated on to their satisfaction.”

      She doesn’t need more surgery, she needs more therapy.

  15. bettyrose says:

    Is there any other way to look good than “for your age”?

    • AG-UK says:

      genetics.. LA is harsh you see some scary people walking around and NOT in the business. Looks like Janice Dickinson in the 1st photo

      • bettyrose says:

        But I mean even a hot 19 year old is hot for 19. Although some women become more “ageless” in appearance around their 30s, we’re all representatives of our general age range.

  16. serena says:

    Holy ********* !!!!!!! Wtf has she done!!

  17. Lucy says:

    On today’s episode of plastic surgery gone horribly wrong….

  18. Kitty28 says:

    Yuck! What is wrong with these women!!??

  19. boredblond says:

    Pretty sad, but not surprising– the suggestion her fiancee wouldn’t notice anything is ridiculous.

    • Kitten says:

      Right? And if he didn’t know anything was up, he sure as f*ck knows now.

    • sills says:

      I don’t think they’re going to end up getting married. This plastic surgery debacle isn’t the problem, it’s a symptom of a much bigger problem. We shall see.

  20. The Eternal Side-Eye says:

    I will say the third picture compared to the first is such a dramatic difference I scrolled up and down several times making sure they were taken at the same time. So I do think the first pic is mostly down to ‘sun-in-your-eyes-face’ but it’s sad that she has basically wrecked her looks.

  21. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    It doesn’t work. If it worked, everyone who could afford it would look 25. It just makes you look desperate and sad.

    • Heat says:

      And in CC’s case, it makes her look like a 90-year-old who has dyed her hair black. Very sad, indeed.

  22. Love the Trumpsc says:

    Jen Aniston please take your friend under your wing and counsel her, support het, love her. This is just sad and scary to have a disease related to vanity.

  23. Alexi says:

    She was so, so naturally attractive- really blessed with good genes. Now it’s a tragedy. She’s becoming Jocelyn the cat woman and is obsessed with “fixing” what was really frankly perfect. She looks mid 60s and like an alien. I guess if her so called friends or agents said the truth unless they all are doing the same thing they would be cut off. I have to say comparatively Lisa kudrow and JA look far better. Courtney seriously you were stunning and now it’s joker face. Really so sad aesthetically and otherwise….she needs to focus on other things than herself like charity work – get grounded with some real issues that folks face and stop destroying yourself physically. This has all made you look like a Tim Burton version of your former truly pretty self. SIGH. Please someone in her circle needs to advise and try and wake her up- repeated surgeries are dangerous – surgery is not taking a car to a car wash and the long term effects of tons of fillers besides ruining those who were blessed with great looks to start with- its all a viscious no win cycle that won’t end well- clearly.

  24. Char says:

    I used to watch Cougar Town & the last season I watched she did something to her face (or I guess had more stuff done) & she looked like that top picture. I’m sure some people were/are making fun of her, but I am a huge Friends fan & I just couldn’t get over how sad it was. She didn’t look like herself at all. About halfway through the season it seemed to settle out a bit & she looked more like herself, but I still found it all just sad.

    I’ve done fillers and Botox and it looks fine. You just have to have a good doctor. Dont go to med spa and any Doctor who throws Botox parties is not a good doctor. These women have tons of money, so they can find someone who will inject crap into their face all day long if they want.

    I always choose my doctor this way: I ask them what they would do to my face. If they say nothing, maybe a little Botox, I trust them. If they start naming all these procedures, things that I know I don’t need, I don’t trust them.

    • Kitten says:

      Definitely. We’re all conditioned to think that plastic surgery makes people look worse because in HWood most of these actors have no idea how to go for a light touch and a natural look. There are people walking amongst us right now who have had work done and we would NEVER be able to tell. Meanwhile, these LA people treat their faces and bodies like home improvement projects. They are literally the WORST advertisements for plastic surgery.

      • allinone says:

        I think the problem is when a 50 yo tries to look 20. You can look maybe decade younger or up to 15 I say- but people have this unrealistic expectations and they overdo it ending up looking even worse. I think you can look a better version of your decade but people go overboard it’s terrifying. The doctors who agree to do that are sh$t too. I mean they know it’s going to look bad but they still do it . Any decent plastic surgeon would tell them it will look bad. Aniston has done things for sure but she looks normal bc she takes it easy.

  26. Heat says:

    Perhaps she should consider having her next tv appearance be on an episode of “Botched”.

    • lucy says:

      Yes! And maybe aesthetic reconfiguring should be reserved for burn victims and car crash victims and the like, not insecure vain people.

  27. Dee says:

    Oh no, in that first photo she’s looking scarily close to Pete Burns. And I see Caitlyn Jenner. Really anyone who is going overboard on fillers and botox just winds up looking the same. And frightening. Why Courteney??!!

    I was in Neiman Marcus the other day and I saw a lady in her 70s and she started talking to me. She had the most beautiful skin. And I asked her who her dermatologist was and she wasn’t shy about the admitting that she had had work done. It wasn’t that it was obvious work, it was done incredibly well, but just that she was clearly in her 70s and she looked amazing. I don’t understand why everyone can’t get work done like that. Subtle and yet perfect.

    • ell says:

      this. i get lip fillers and they look natural and people who haven’t met me before can’t even tell. it’s not just going to a good doctor, it’s choosing someone who is professional enough to warn you when to stop (and before anyone asks, many are very professional and will tell you).

  29. Crumpet says:

    I’ve always thought that she has some kind of dysmorphia disorder. She has always been obsessed with what she saw as ‘flaws’ in herself, and has a rule where she can’t look at herself in mirrors during the day at her house. She needs counseling at the very least. It really breaks my heart to see her waste her life and ruin herself with this obsession she has struggled with all her adult life.

    • msw says:

      I remember some interview from years ago, and she was criticizing her cover photo because “one eye looked three quarters the size of the other.” I never even noticed a difference but I remember thinking she seemed fixated on finding flaws in herself. I thought it was a one-off, at the time.

  30. lowercaselois says:

    She probably has an addictive or obsessive personality and she can’t stop herself. My neighbor is a addiction counselor and she sees people who drink, eat,smoke and pop pills too much. She also sees sex addicts, hypochondriacS and people obsessed with themselves. She says it is all part of the same area in the brain.

  31. Alexi says:

    Yes…..agree on possible dysmporphia….and that Pete reference is right on alas…. I need more caffeine now- this is a crazy obsession…..

  32. HK9 says:

    I think of Courtney as a naturally beautiful woman and it makes me a bit miffed that someone that beautiful still cannot see what we see hence all the messing with her face.

  33. Mila says:

    She looks scary to me. I dont know how she can even see with all that botox around her eyes.

  34. Suzanne says:

    Excuse me…but does anyone else see Caitlyn in that first photo besides me?

  35. Kylie says:

    It makes me sad that people are so insecure that they do this to themselves.

  36. Armenthrowup says:

    I use a natural filler – cake.

    • Christin says:

      A few extra pounds is usually a very effective natural filler. Yet these women who overdo it apparently don’t want to carry a couple of extra pounds.

      They would rather pay for and take the risks of injecting stuff in their face.

      • allinone says:

        Agreed. Most of these women are underweight and put so much filler it looks crazy. If they would just gain 10 lbs it would look good on them and their face would look naturally fuller. Wtf?? they have body dysmorphia
        Look at JLO she obviously had work done bc none in mid 40s naturally looks like that- genetics or not – but she has kept a healhty weight and has done subtle work and looks great

    • ell says:

      cake clogs your arteries though.

      not saying you shouldn’t eat cake, I do too sometimes, but eating well is also important for good skin.

    • Anne tommy says:

      Carrot cake must count as a vegetable…oh Courtenay, what have you done to your formerly fabulous face…

  37. Isabel says:

    Please,Please, Please can anybody stop her???:-(((

  38. Christin says:

    About 20 years ago, no one thought much about tanning and tanning beds (which some thought were safer than the sun).

    My personal prediction is that 20 years from now, there will be health problems linked to fillers and such. Just a gut feeling I have, because it takes roughly a generation to figure out what may be causing harm.

    • ell says:

      not really though, since these fillers are made of substances we already have in our body.

      • Christin says:

        Is Botox also natural? Neurologists have ads for the drug in their offices (to help ALS, MG, etc.) and we were told that it can affect swallowing and other muscles.

        Feel free to disagree, but I firmly believe there will be problems liked to (over)use of these ‘beauty’ aids.

      • LAK says:

        Christin is right though.

        20yrs ago, boob implants were all made from silicon. Now we know that’s not good.

        Botox in 90s Hollywood was used to stop sweating during award season – lots of articles about how it was part of looking good at awards because you didn’t sweat as a result of botox application to armpits, then someone decided to use it on faces and now it is the go to solution for faces.

        10yrs ago someone accidentally realised that hermoroid cream – strivectin is very good for wrinkles, now it is a best seller for…..wrinkles.

      • Neonscream says:

        There is iron our bodies, I wouldn’t suggest injecting it into your cheekbones though.

  39. ell says:

    ok here’s the thing, i’m not against plastic surgery/fillers at all. and i get it. what i don’t understand is why these celebs don’t settle for a happy medium. get fillers to look better, not to look like you’re 25 when you’re 20 years older. do they really not have anyone in their lives that loves them enough to tell them when to stop?

  40. funckes says:

    In the second picture, in the shade,she looks fine. But you can tell in the light she’s had some fillers injected in her face.

  41. ell says:

    also she should really lighten her hair. i don’t understand women who have clearly gone grey who keep their hair so harshly dark. a chocolate brown shade would suit her a lot more.

  42. kri says:

    Oh my god. WTF?! Once again, HORRIBLE work! Why can’t these people see what the difference is between quality, subtle work and this…facial cantilevering?! The freaking Hoover Dam had less construction done on it. Oh, whyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?!?

  43. rianic says:

    I get Botox every six months, and everyone is always surprised when I tell them. My advice is to visit the doctor for a facial first,band then check out the office staff. If they look extreme, DO NOT USE THEM. You can have it done and still be able to move your brows and leave a few lines. I’ve just head deep forehead lines since college bc I’m so nearsighted and squint a lot even with contacts.

    Courtney was so beautiful – go back to the old Springsteen video. She just has that delicate bone structure that would have aged gracefully.

    • chaine says:

      I go to a dermatologist for skin checks, etc. and she and her staff regularly suggest botox/filler procedures to me. She is in her early 50’s and has a face that is so full of fillers that she looks like a lion, and her staff, most of whom are in their 20’s, all have over-plumped duck lips. All of them look uncanny. I always refuse the suggested procedures.

  44. Mrs. Darcy says:

    I just has my first vaguely aggressive skin thing done yesterday – thread veins zapped, nothing major but I am walking around with inflamed cheeks – just as well I’m not famous for the world to scrutinize my vanity, I look pretty bad! But it did start me thinking about other stuff. It’s a slippery slope, I can’t blame Courtney but I do wish someone would tell her ENOUGH. She’s been on the filler conveyor belt long enough to have timed it to settle for the wedding I imagine, but I really don’t get why she needs quite so much though to start with?!

  45. Jayna says:

    These poor souls get faces they never had in their 20s. That’s what is so bizarre. Look at Meg Ryan’s little mouth and little face early on, and then look at what she is now. Courtney is the same with her mouth and big odd cheeks and too much botox. So they aren’t looking younger. They overdo it to the point they are unnatural looking.

    No, society nor their career is making them do this. You can look at a lot of actresses in their 40s, which is when Courtney and Meg started this, and 50s who did get work done, but it’s mild and just makes them look like a fresher version of themselves and their careers thrive because they don’t have some odd face on screen like Melanie Griffin and Meg did after all the work. I have friends who freak out as they are getting older and start going to plastic surgeons and dermatologists for the latest thing. Some doctors are just out pushing the latest and newest thing. My one friend went to a plastic surgeon with two other women. He made her feel awful about herself and was trying to push a brow lift, blah, blah. Thank God, she walked out afterwards, but still she fell like she had a lot wrong with her after he focused in on her out of the others. It was so odd.

    I do believe these women get addicted and can’t go back. Elizabeth Hurley is 50 and looks amazing. No pillow face or cat face nor a face that doesn’t move. Whatever she is doing is just right.

    • Christin says:

      My dermatology group pushes certain things. You go in to be checked for possible skin cancer and they may discuss how you can have your pores reduced or whatever.

      We also have probably 10 times the plastic surgery groups as 15 years ago. It’s big business everywhere.

      • MrsBPitt says:

        I want to know if anyone has had laser to remove brown spots on their face! I want to do it so badly, because I hate, hate, hate, these ugly brown spots! I’m 56 years old, and I don’t mind a few wrinkles, yeah, I dye my hair, I exercise and try to eat well, but these damn spots are driving me nuts!!! However, I”m terrified to do the laser, because I’m afraid they will get worse instead of disappearing! Any suggestions or advice from anyone who has had laser to remove age spots?

  46. Josefa says:

    I can’t say anything that hasn’t been said already. She was gifted with a naturally fresh and gorgeous face and now she barely looks human.

    If Courtney never messed with her face and simply took proper care of her skin, she’d still be a stunner.

    • Christin says:

      I have no idea what her parents looked like (genetics), or if she smokes/drinks. Yet I always thought she was on a short list of female celebrities who would likely age well, if she had decent genetics and took care of herself.

      Now this.

      • Josefa says:

        Does she have any daughters? I think it would be really sad if she had a daughter who inherited her perfectly pretty face, and grew up watching her mother butcher it constantly looking as plastic as possible. How can you tell your daughter or son they are beautiful when you actively try to look the least like your natural self?

      • Christin says:

        She does have a young daughter, and I have wondered the same thing. How does a mother encourage a daughter to accept her own unique beauty, when the mother has altered her own appearance so drastically? I don’t get it.

      • Susannah says:

        Her daughter Coco, unfortunately, looks much more like her ex-husband.

  47. meme says:

    If that’s true, then I guess she’s going to debut a whole new face. The one she has now is awful. I wonder if Jennifer Aniston ever tried to talk to her about this. Jennifer’s probably been tweaked but she looks like herself and around her age.

  48. Matador says:

    She’s gone full Wildenstein. You never go full Wildenstein.

  49. IrishEyes says:

    Shes starting to look like Pete Burns

  50. Jayna says:

    Courtney Cox is so beautiful. I just don’t get why she overdoes it so often and is so obsessed. She is like Cher I think, who doesn’t want one line, so fills in every place they can. But they both had more lines when younger than they do now. LOL.

    Here is Courtney not overdoing it in the face. Her lips are plumped up but not over done. Stunning.

    Here is Courtney looking like Daryl Hannah, another one who overdoes it.

  51. shannon says:

    My aunt who turns 50 this month, (doesn’t smoke/drink), but also doesn’t work out or have the best diet, looks about 100 times better that CC. It’s Meg Ryan all over again. I can’t imagine what Kim K is going to look like in 20 years.

    • lucy says:

      I can hardly wait to see what kim k looks like in another decade. It’s going to be EPIC.

  52. suzanne says:

    When are people going to realize that you don’t look younger OR better with all the filler/over botoxing/plastic surgery/fake cheeks etc…you just look ODD.

    This is a great subject where “a little goes a long way” is a very relevant statement.

  53. Sarah01 says:

    Oh no I don’t understand how men can find cat face types attractive it looks so bad. And still these rich ladies mess their faces up to appear youthful – sad really.

  54. JET76 says:

    Two words: Julianne Moore

  55. Byte Me says:

    Whoa!!! She’s creeping into Janice Dickenson territory now.

  56. Cindy says:

    I am getting ready to read the post and comments, but I have to first say no no no no no. WHAT has she done to her beautiful face? no no no……..I don’t know what to say 🙁

  57. perplexed says:

    OMG, what is happening? No, that’s not simply bloat. (Although I suppose her face can look better depending on which photograph is used).

  58. justagirl says:

    She was so naturally beautiful! After a few years it was difficult watching Cougar Town because her changed face was so disconcerting…then it looked like she had cut back on the procedures but ugh I guess not. Is it vanity? Body dysmorphia? Sad whichever it is.

  59. Jayna says:

    Those lips are a real mess too in those photos.

  60. Nicolette says:

    Does she own a mirror or ever look into it? Does she or any other celeb that has butchered their face really think they look good?

  61. nicegirl says:

    I do not know anything about fillers or injections, except what I have seen here. My question is, if she were to STOP all of the f-ing with her face, would it then, even a little bit, age ‘naturally’? I mean, is some of this crap reversible at all, if not re-filled, or whatever?

    I guess I would rather look like myself but OLDER than someone else, all weird faced.

    • OrigialTessa says:

      Madonna seems to be looking more human lately. I think it’s possible, but your surgeon needs to be Picasso.

    • Christin says:

      I also wonder if some degree of skin stretching isn’t a risk (because older skin is not as elastic).

      CC’s look may settle, but she will likely go right back and refill it as some point (like Nicole K and others do).

      Her eyes were so lovely, and now they are just lost in all that smooth puffiness. Even in the indoor photo, she just looks startled. I don’t know how you explain doing this to an impressionable young daughter, either.

  62. Amy Tennant says:

    About the gaining a few pounds thing, I remember reading somewhere that as you age you have to make a choice between your face and your butt.
    Also, when I read the part about how she uses a girlfriends retreat as her cover story for getting plastic surgery, that just made. Me sad. I think going on an actual girlfriends retreat (or at least the occasional group honeymoon haha) would do her so much better than the surgery! Relax, laugh a lot, escape from your cares, and I bet you’ll feel better and look better for it.

  63. KNick says:

    So sad,she looks horrid. WTH does she see when she looks in the mirror?!!?! What does Jonny see now….does he want to run away??! Because there is a DEEP ROOTED issue going on here and he will bear the brunt of it when they marry. Unless he goes all Keith Urban-like, who also married an filler addict and started doing his own procedures.

    Wonder why her “good FRIEND” Jennifer doesn’t tell her to stop. Sometimes friends like that they are looking better than you as they age…wonder if JA is that type of friend..the worse CC looks the better she looks in comparison.

  64. Grant says:

    She was the most gorgeous Friend by a mile, especially in the earlier seasons. I was watching reruns of Family Ties (where she got her sitcom start) and she was truly an exquisitely beautiful woman. I mean, just breathtaking. So sad to see this. Something nice: the second and third pics don’t look quite as bad as the first one…

    • Esteph says:

      I agree with you, the lighting outside doesn’t help, but at the same time it makes her look so harsh. I mean you can really tell where she was trying to focus on her appearance. She needs to lay off of those fillers for her cheeks.

  65. khaveman says:

    It’s her body/face to do with what she pleases, but GROSS. She looks better inside the building rather than outdoors, to be fair.

  66. Jeanette says:

    She seriously looks like that Jocelyn W..the cat face woman in the first picture..GIRL. I love ya but LAY OFF. Ya dont need it!

  67. Miss Melissa says:

    Ugh she looks like Janice Dickinson in the first photo.

    Why? It doesn’t look better than natural.

  68. Jag says:

    Why is her fiance not staging an intervention? Each surgery carries a risk, and she is looking awful these days.

    • Elisa the I. says:

      I so agree.
      I’m a huge fan of Snow Patrol – the band he is in – and what I see from his interviews he is a super-nice, down-to-earth guy.
      I guess she is scared of looking too old, not good enough etc. at the wedding, and that’s why she is going overboard with the surgery.

  69. melinda says:

    What kind of an example is she setting for her daughter! Having a healthy body image, accepting yourself the way you are — not important I guess.

  70. Kate says:

    If I didn’t know who she was, I’d assume she was in her mid to late sixties, because all you see is the work, and it’s far more work than is normal for an early 50-something, even one heavily into plastic surgery.

  71. Blackbetty says:

    God this is scary!

  72. stinky says:

    This is a disaster! she WAS one of those women with a beautiful timeless angular face – omg – she would have looked gorgeous at any age. she had angles. features. and she was perfect. who the F*CK is advising her????? Whoever they are, they’re the assholes.

    • Esteph says:

      I totally agree! I mean she was so beautiful and effortless in her appearance, and now it shows that she cares a lot, which isn’t a bad thing, it just means that she no longer will have a natural appearance.

    • lisa2 says:

      She started doing things when she was married to David. I also think being on a weekly show hurt too. You see yourself aging. Especially when you can see shows from the beginning. She was insecure when she married a younger man. Even said so in interviews. Now she is engaged to a younger man. She is really not working in front of the camera much.

      I don’t get why women don’t see when they put stuff in their face they are altering the natural aging path their face is going to take. So it adjusts and things get off. Then they have to do something else to adjust the movement they stopped. She won’t ever stop. She can’t now.

  73. stinky says:

    PS: i finally went to a ‘party/event’ at a dermatological salon the other night – i accompanied a friend who truly didnt want to go alone. she had raved about the facial she got, and we knew they would sell some discount packages and i DO need a new facial spot. We had a great time at the event – and stayed longer than anyone else…. raffle, info, samples, food & wine. A great ploy to attract new moths, fresh meat, fish-in-a-barrel … right? No complaints. But here’s what i learned… … … ampules of the newest and fanciest fillers cost $750. & up. I immediately realized why women go too far, go overboard, & lose perspective about all this: They’re paying a shit-ton of money for their dose – so by God they’re gonna take it all into their face. Its a racket, of course. But when you have a money-grubbing salon or clinic combined w/ a client who’s paying a grand for some juice (?) — its just a toxic, co-dependent relationship.

  74. TopCat says:

    I feel deeply for Courtney because no woman does this to themselves if they feel happy in their skin. It’s so problematic for women in Hollywood because whether they choose to age naturally or get work done, they will be critiqued regardless. Courtney chose surgery (ultimately her choice) and people still can’t let her be.

    I have a lot of fondness for Courtney for her portrayal of Monica. She’s an intelligent, witty, lightning fast and articulate woman who clearly has some neurosis of her own. It is not easy to be a woman in Hollywood with so much obsessive focus on the way that you look. Most posters pick women on here apart every day; (why is she wearing that? She should have some work done. She should grow her hair…) and then forget that celebs also hear this all day from producers, directors, agents etc. Of course some of them cave in. It’s a harrowing experience for ones self-esteem.

    I still love you Courtney X

  75. Esteph says:

    I’m sorry, but just no…the lighting might play a factor in the way that her face looks, but she looks so unnatural at this point. The fact that she has been messing with her face, and it clearly shows with the way the skin pulls at certain points is not cute.

  76. iheartgossip says:

    Whoa! How much or what is left? She’s already been tucked, plucked ‘n bucked. Poor thing must suffer low self-esteem

  77. Ari says:

    wow she looks just awful :L i dont understand how she is such good friends with aniston who is really aging quite gracefully and if she isnt well courtney needs to go to whoever jen goes to because the person she uses is barftastic

    • Corey says:

      I would have to agree. As much as JA irritates people, she really does look great. You would think she could give Courtney the name of her doc.

  78. Sas says:

    I honestly thought the lead photo was of Janice Dickinson.

  79. Terry says:

    I thought for a minute it was catylin Jenner
