Courteney Cox has opened up about her regrets about using face fillers in the past.

The Friends star, now 58, has revealed that she regrets some of her cosmetic choices in the past as she has come to accept aging.

In the early-to-mid-2010s, Cox admitted in an interview with The Times that she had tried to "chase" youthfulness, and turned to face filler injections in an attempt to smooth out the wrinkles and boast a younger appearance.

Facial fillers are "substances injected into the skin to smooth wrinkles and make them less noticeable," per the Mayo Clinic.

However, instead of looking younger, she says she just ended up looking "really strange".

"I didn't realize that, 'Oh sh** I'm actually looking really strange with injections and doing stuff to my face that I would never do now,'" she told The Times.

The Scream star finally opted to have all of her fillers dissolved back in 2017, and has boasted a more natural and fresh-faced look ever since.

In fact, she revealed in an interview with NewBeauty, she said that she believes she no looks more like her old self.

"I think that I now look more like the person that I was [before adjustments]. I hope I do," Cox told the outlet. "Things are going to change. Everything's going to drop. I was trying to make it not drop, but that made me look fake."

Earlier in 2023, Cox also discussed her skincare routine and perspective on aging during an episode of the Gloss Angeles Beauty Podcast.

When the co-hosts Kirbie Johnson and Sara Tan asked the actress to name and explain her biggest beauty regret, Cox quickly said that it was fillers.

She said getting the initial treatment created a "domino effect" that compelled her to get more, explaining: "You don’t realize that you look a little off, so then you keep doing more, 'cause you look normal to yourself," as cited by Huffington Post.

Cox added that she had reached the point where she didn't realize how she really looked to others, explaining: "You look in the mirror and go, 'That looks good.' You think and you don’t realize what it looks like to the outside person."

The Scrubs star then candidly spoke about the misconception that she used to have about aging, saying: "Thinking that I was getting older when I was really young, that’s just a bummer, a waste of time," adding, "I messed up a lot and now, luckily, I was able to reverse most of that, now I’m actually just older."
