Hollywood may be all glitz, glam and gleaming smiles on the surface, but at a deeper level many of its best known inhabitants find themselves under serious pressure to defy the effects of aging. 

In a new episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls former Friends actress Courteney Cox revealed that she was one such star.

During a rather candid conversation – which was filmed right here in Ireland – the 52-year-old actress told the British adventurer that she now regrets having experimented with plastic surgery in the past.


She said: “Getting older, I don't think that's the easiest thing.  But I have learned lessons.”

“I think I was trying to keep up with getting older and trying to chase that [youthful look].  It's something you can't keep up with.”

According to Vanity Fair, the mother of one did not reveal which procedures she’s actually undergone, but did admit that at times she was left feeling dissatisfied with the results.

Courteney said: “Sometimes you find yourself trying and then you look at a picture of yourself and you go ‘oh god, I look horrible.”’

“I have done things that I regret and luckily there are things that dissolve and go away.  So that's good because it's not always been my best look”

Thankfully it seems Courteney’s days dabbling with cosmetic enhancement are over as she has since adopted a more natural approach. 

“Now I have a new motto,” she said.  “Just let it be.”
