Friends star Courteney Cox has admitted that getting filler is her biggest regret.
And now the actor has opened up about her experience during a recent episode of the Gloss Angeles Beauty Podcast.
She told hosts Kirbie Johnson and Sara Tan that she 'messed up a lot' by getting fillers.
She said: "Thinking I was getting older when I was really young, that's just a bummer, a waste of time; it's a domino effect, it's like you don't realise that you look a little off, so then you keep doing more cause you look normal to yourself.
"You look in the mirror and go, 'Oh, that looks good,' you think, and you don't realise what it looks like to the outside person and just doing too many fillers and having to have them removed, which thank god they are removable, I think I messed up a lot and now luckily I can, I was able to reverse most of that, now I'm actually just older."
Cox also added that she was left stunned by old pictures of herself when she had her fillers.
"I look at pictures of me from when I thought I looked okay, and I can't believe it." she said.
Back in 2017, Cox spoke about how she thought that a lot of women felt that they had to turn to plastic surgery or other cosmetic procedures.
She explained: "You go to a doctor who would say, 'You look great, but what would help is a little injection here or filler there'."
But after deciding to remove her fillers, Cox said that she feels much better as she 'looks like myself'.
She added: "I think that I now look more like the person that I was.
"Things are going to change. Everything's going to drop. I was trying to make it not drop, but that made me look fake.
"You need movement in your face, especially if you have thin skin like I do.
"Those aren't wrinkles – they're smile lines. I've had to learn to embrace movement and realise that fillers are not my friend."
More female celebrities are becoming more outspoken on the ridiculous expectations that face them as they get older, and we are here for it.
Recently, Helen Mirren spoke about her 'radical' choice to grow her hair despite the stereotype that older women should have short hair.
