Here's How Plastic Surgery Damaged Courteney Cox's Career

Courteney Cox is famous for her role as Monica Geller on Friends and later for playing Jules Cobb on Cougar Town. She married actor David Arquette but they divorced in 2010, according to the Mirror. She then dated Snow Patrol's bassist, Johnny McDaid, thanks to an introduction from Ed Sheeran, but that relationship was arguably doomed.

While Cox has had an exciting life and a high-profile career, it seems like Hollywood isn't that interested in casting the brunette beauty in anything new. While she still makes a hefty sum off of her time on Friends, the actor would probably love to keep her talent in good practice.

One reason for Cox's departure from Hollywood was her altered appearance over the years from fillers and Botox. When the star got candid with Us Weekly about the work she's had done, she said: "I have done things that I regret." Yikes! Keep reading to find out the truth behind Cox's plastic surgery debacle.

Courteney Cox realized fillers weren't her friends

Courteney Cox opened up about the work she has had done and what she really feels about it now. On a 2016 episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls (via Us Weekly), Cox said, "I think there's a pressure to maintain [your looks], not just because of fame, but just, you know, being a woman in this business. Getting older has not been ... I don't think it's the easiest thing. I think I was trying to keep up with getting older, trying to chase that ... it's something you can't keep up with." 

Cox added, "I have done things that I regret, and luckily they're things that dissolve and go away. So, um, that's good, because it's not always been my best look."

In a 2017 interview with New Beauty, Cox spoke about her relationship with plastic surgery and how she didn't stop until a friend told her it was too much. Cox shared, "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."

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."
