Courteney Cox says getting filler in her face has been one of her biggest regrets

Courteney Cox says getting filler in her face has been one of her biggest regrets

The Friends star called it a 'domino effect', saying she hates seeing old photos of herself with filler

Courteney Cox has admitted that getting filler in her face when she was younger is one of her biggest regrets.

The 59-year-old actress was a guest on the Gloss Angeles podcast in March 2023, and talked all things health and beauty.

Known best for her time on NBC sitcom Friends, the TV series put her in the world's spotlight as Monica Geller, who is still one of the most recognisable on-screen characters in history.

However, the star admitted that she made an error in her early acting years, and branded it as one of her biggest mistakes.

Cox, who turns 60 this Saturday (15 June), revealed that she wishes that she never got filler in her face in a conversation with podcast hosts Kirbie Johnson and Sara Tan.

The Scream star labelled it as a 'domino effect', explaining: "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."

The Family Ties actress also admitted that she is caught off guard by old pictures of herself when she had face filler in.

"I look at pictures of me from when I thought I looked okay, and I can't believe it," Cox admitted.

Unfortunately for Cox, many on social media jumped at the chance to agree with her.

One X user said: "It does take away from her because she can’t express sadness on film anymore."

Another added: "Ladies, natural is best. This is not a good look at all."

And a third commented: "I don’t think she looks bad but I think these celebrities need to realise they look great the way they are.

"I’m not against filters or injections or whatever you want. I think natural beauty should just be embraced more no than trying to change yourself."

This is not the first time that Cox has spoken up about her relationship with her appearance though, as she told New Beauty in 2017 that plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures are normalised in Hollywood, especially for women.

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'."

Since removing her fillers, the actress says that she feels better because she looks like herself: "I think that I now look more like the person that I was."

She continued: "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."
