Courtney Cox recently opened up to The Sunday Times about getting older. The star, now 57, play a woman going through a midlife crisis and menopause in an upcoming show “Shining Vale” and she says she can relate to her character’s emotional struggles. “I understand that midlife stuff completely,” she shared with the Times.
With turning 60 in just a few years, the “Friends” star says she can’t wrap her head around that and that she find it hard to even hear or say it. But she goes on to clarify that there’s nothing wrong with being 60 and acknowledges where she is in life. “There’s no question that I am more grounded, I’ve learned so much in my life — what to enjoy, what to try to do more of and what to let go of.”
At this point in her life, she also has learned to let go of the cosmetic procedures she used to get in order to maintain a youthful appearance. After trying to chase that youthful look for years, she came to realize the injections made her look strange. These are things Cox says she would never do now.
