Courteney Cox Just Opened Up About Why She Stopped Getting Fillers

Courteney Cox dissolved all her fillers—and she’s never felt better.

Speaking with PEOPLE, the actress revealed that she began getting injectable fillers in the first place because she had a hard time accepting her age.

“I would say it’s a common thing you go through as you age, especially in Hollywood,” said Cox. “You have to accept getting older, and that’s something that I had a hard time doing.”

She had an epiphany once she realized she no longer looked like herself.

“[I tried] to keep up with time in a way that was anything other than maintenance. I didn’t realize it until one day I kind of stepped back and went, ‘Oh s—. I don’t look like myself,” explained the 54-year-old.

It’s been almost two years since she dissolved all her fillers, and Cox is living her best life.

“So now I just embrace who I am and getting older with what God gave me, not what I was trying to change.”

“I kind of own everything. And the things that I am not as comfortable with myself, they’re things that I continue to work on to grow and change,” said the actress. ” am at a stage of my life where it’s very easy to be comfortable with who I am and who I’ve become and who I strive to be.”
