Courteney Cox has named her past penchant for fillers as one of her biggest regrets.
The Friends alum sat down with the Gloss Angeles podcast to chat about all things beauty.
She revealed to hosts and beauty journalists Kirbie Johnson and Sara Tan she wishes she never got fillers in her face.
"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 realize that you look a little off, so then you keep doing more cause you look normal to yourself," she said.
"You look in the mirror and go, 'Oh, that looks good,' you think, and you don't realize 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 Scream star added that she still is sometimes stunned by old naps of her when she was in her face filler era.
"I look at pictures of me from when I thought I looked okay, and I can't believe it," she said.
Unfortunately for Cox, many on social media jumped at the chance to agree with her.
One Twitter user said: "I won’t lie, her face was a tad distracting and off in Scream 6. 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."
A third commented: "I don’t think she looks bad but I think these celebrities need to realize 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."
It's not the first time Cox has spoken out about her relationship with her appearance over the years.
The actor told New Beauty in 2017 that plastic surgery and other cosmetic procedures were normalized in Hollywood circles, especially among women.
"You go to a doctor who would say, 'You look great, but what would help is a little injection here or filler there','' she explained.
Following her decision to remove her fillers, Cox said: "I feel better because I look like myself. 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."
