Last year, Courteney Cox was on piss queen Bear Grylls’ show Running Wild, and admitted that she regrets turning her face into a rubber cat mask by wet fucking it with syringes full of fillers. Courteney is in New Beauty magazine to talk about her beauty and she talked more about the journey her face took from all-natural to stage 6 Jocelyn Wildenstein. Courteney says she feels a lot better now because her fillers have gone away and now she looks much more like Courtney Cox.
Like most famous people, Courteney really cares about her looks and says she first got it from her mom, who she says is gorgeous, and her dad, who always talked about people’s looks. She says that caring about her looks so much got her into “trouble” and led her to filler needle after filler needle:
Well, what would end up happening is that you go to a doctor who would say, “You look great, but what would help is a little injection here or filler there.” So you walk out and you don’t look so bad and you think, no one noticed—it’s good. Then somebody tells you about another doctor: “This person’s amazing. They do this person who looks so natural.” You meet them and they say, “You should just do this.” The next thing you know, you’re layered and layered and layered. You have no idea because it’s gradual until you go, “Oh shit, this doesn’t look right.”
Courteney still didn’t think she looked all that different until she saw pictures of her herself. Even then, a friend told her that her live-and-in-person face looked nothing like her face in pictures.
And it’s worse in pictures than in real life. I have one friend who was like, “Whoa, no more!” I thought, I haven’t done anything in six months. I didn’t realize. Yeah. But I’d see pictures and think, “Oh, is that what I look like?” And I’d ask a friend and they’d say, “Oh God, no.” And I never thought of myself as being delusional. I think photographs do show up worse, so when people in the world see you and write comments that are usually mean, I think, “It can be worse than what it really is.”
But she eventually broke up with Botox and she’s not totally plastic-free, but is as natural as she can be now.
I’ve had all my fillers dissolved. I’m as natural as I can be. I feel better because I look like myself. I think that I now look more like the person that I was. I hope I do. 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 realize that fillers are not my friend.
Oh Courteney, Courteney, Courteney…
You’re famous. You’re not supposed to be that honest. If someone asks you about fillers, you’re supposed to try to move your face into the “Que?” position and then say: Botox? What’s that? How do you spell it? Is it foreign? If it’s not sold in the all-natural and organic beauty section at Whole Foods, I don’t know what it is! Maybe my face looked different because of Japanese potatoes. I eat a lot of those. Maybe I ate a bad batch or something.
That’s how you celebrity, Courteney!
