Courteney Cox is not a hot white dude celebrity who can help boost ratings by getting his nipples out to do homoerotic action with Bear Grylls, so I’m not sure why she was on Running Wild, but she was. I didn’t see Courteney’s episode, which aired on Monday, but I’m going to take a wild guess and say that she and Bear did the usual like give themselves a deer piss enema and spend the night inside of the carcass of a dead elk. And in between that, Bear transformed into a regular Diane Sawyer and the two got deep.
While Renee “Squinty No More” Zellweger shared her feelings about aging in Hollywood and people talking about her face in a 20,000 word op-ed piece for the Huffington Post, Courteney decided to spill her feelings about those things into the ear of Bear Grylls. Court-extra-e-ney said that duh, there’s pressure for actresses to freeze their face in time and she’s definitely tried to do that. But she admitted that sometimes when she’s shot up her face with liquid wrinkle killer, she has looked in the mirror and seen the Snickers Lady staring back at her. She didn’t like that. via UsWeekly
“I think there’s a pressure to maintain [your looks], not just because of fame, but just, you know, being a woman in this business. Getting older has not been … I don’t think it’s the easiest thing. I think I was trying to keep up with getting older, trying to chase that … it’s something you can’t keep up with. So, the more you relax into it and the less I try, because sometimes you find yourself trying and then you look at a picture of yourself and go, ‘Oh, God.’ Like, you look horrible. I have done things that I regret, and luckily they’re things that dissolve and go away. So, um, that’s good, because it’s not always been my best look.
Now I just have a new motto: Just let it be.”
I’m surprised that when Courteney made it sound like she’s only used fillers and hasn’t had her faced touched by a scalpel, Bear didn’t turn that into a Running Wild moment. I’m shocked that he didn’t catch a flying bat mid-air, jack jizz out of it and then tell Courteney that bat cum makes a much better face filler than snake venom.
And when Courteney said, “Just let it be,” Bear probably misheard that as, “Just let us pee,” and said, “Finally! Now let’s drink some piss. I’ve been parched.”
