Friends star Courteney Cox regrets ‘horrible’ efforts to fight ageing

The 52 -year-old is the last female performer to speak out about the pressure on older ladies to keep their youthful looks

Courteney Cox, the former Friends starring, has said she is reconciled to looking older and repent some procedures she had in the past to keep the wrinkles at bay.

Cox, 52, spoke out during an safarus with outdoor adventurer Bear Grylls in the Irish highlands, in which the pair abseiled down cliffs and shared maggots found in a rotting sheep.

Cox, who spoke some years ago about employing Botox and laser treatments to prolong her youthful looks, said she was now more relaxed.
