WATCH: Cox said keeping up with the pressure of looking young was impossible to maintain – Aug 24, 2016

There have been rumours circulating in Hollywood for years now that former Friends star Courteney Cox had plastic surgery on her face. Many TV viewers noted changes to Cox’s face during the later seasons of Friends, but it had never been confirmed or denied by the actress herself.

Lately, female celebs like Renée Zellweger have been speaking out about pressures in the industry, claiming that women endure far more scrutiny about their looks. On Monday night’s episode of Running Wild With Bear Grylls, Cox herself brought up the topic, saying she too gave in to the societal expectations.

“I was trying to keep up with getting older and trying to chase that [youth],” Cox, 52, confessed to Grylls. “It’s something you can’t keep up with.”

She didn’t reveal what procedures she underwent, but she did reveal that she wasn’t pleased with the results.

“Sometimes you find yourself trying [to stop aging] and then you look at a picture of yourself and you go, ‘Oh God, I look horrible,'” she said. “I have done things that I regret, and luckily there are things that dissolve and go away. So that’s good because [it has] not always been my best look.”

Cox has turned over a new leaf, and vows to stay au naturel going forward.

“Now I have a new motto: Let it be,” she said.

She went on to say that she doesn’t feel “burdened” by the pressures of celebrity, but thinks people on social media “can be mean.”

Earlier this month, Zellweger, 47, wrote a scathing blog post on The Huffington Post, attacking the media’s obsession with women aging.

“Not that it’s anyone’s business, but I did not make a decision to alter my face and have surgery on my eyes,” she wrote. “This fact is of no true importance to anyone at all, but that the possibility alone was discussed among respected journalists and became a public conversation is a disconcerting illustration of news/entertainment confusion and society’s fixation on physicality.”

Cox’s Friends co-star Jennifer Aniston also wrote a blog for HuffPost after several publications speculated the actress was pregnant in a photo.
