After years of media scrutiny over her physical appearance, Courteney Cox has said she now regrets undergoing cosmetic procedures and altering the way she looks.
“I was trying to keep up with getting older and trying to chase that,” the 52-year-old admitted recently, continuing, “Getting older is not the easiest thing. But I have learned lessons.”

Taking part in an upcoming season of Running Wild with Bear Grylls, Cox's confession came while the pair were filming, sitting on a mountaintop in Ireland, with the mother-of-one explaining, "I think there's a pressure to maintain that [looking young] not just because of fame but just being a woman in this business."
The former Friends star continued, "sometimes you find yourself trying and you look at a picture of yourself and go, 'ooh God! I look horrible'.
"I have done things I regret and luckily they're things that dissolve and go away, so that's good because it's not always been my best look," she said, adding finally, "Now I just have a new motto, just let it be."
