Courteney Cox Admits To Using Botox

Courteney Cox Talks Botox

Courteney Cox has always been known for her creamy, smooth, and clear complexion. And guess what? While other celebs, such as Nicole Kidman adamantly deny any needle-to-face contact, Courteney actually admits to Marie Claire that she's dabbled with a little Botox herself.

Courteney, who'll be gracing the cover of the magazine's November issue, chats about her acceptance of the natural aging process, while dishing about her experience with the ever-popular cosmetic procedure. Here's what she had to say:

On her thoughts regarding Botox
"Botox? I think it's fantastic and also horrible. I mean, they've come up with this stuff that can make you not look angry. But you have to use it sparingly. I went to this doctor once, and he was like, 'Oh, let me do it just here and here and here.' And I was miserable. I mean, I'm an actor, I've got to be able to move my face. When people start messing with their foreheads and can't life their eyebrows, that's weird. It's not that I haven't tried Botox — but I hated it."

To find out what her husband, David Arquette, thinks of her aging process,

On the topic of her husband opposing plastic surgery
"It's really important to him," she says. "He loves the aging process. He thinks it's beautiful." Not only is Courteney under pressure from him to not do too much, "I'm under pressure to not do anything," she says to the magazine.

I, for one, find it refreshing when celebrities are honest about cosmetic procedures. What do you think? (And while you're at it, see if you can guess which celebrities, like Courteney, have copped to the 'tox.)

it was pretty obvious on Dirt that she's gotten Botox - good for her admitting to it...

Exactly. I mean, who cares what kind of "work" they have done, but it's SO lame when they lie about it, a la Nicole Kidman...

At least she's honest about it.

Very refreshing to hear her talk about it. Cute for the hubby not to want her messing up the aging process-lol.

Sorry I could never inject Botox, a virus. I've done restaylne which is naturally found in your lips and skin and had great results.

I admire her honesty.

I think she must have done something else, too. Botox doesn't permanently change your face. Something is off with her...her lips and eyes are weird and as far as I know, Botox doesn't get injected into those ;-)

well she shouldn't have her face looks weird now.

I suppose at least Courtney admitting she's flirted with botox is better than completely denying having anything done. Nicole Kidman has got to be joking saying she hasn't had any work done -- imo she's marred her beautiful face and turned it into a plastic parody mask of her former self.

At least she is open about having had Botox done and is not trying to pass it off as "good genes and fab routine." I am against botox however it is refreshing to hear someone own up to getting it done. Hopefully she will not have any more done since it made her look frozen. Time to let the face thaw out.

Tsk tsk Courteney. That's why her face looks odd can't really tell in pictures, but you can see it onscreen.

Courteney is smart. . . admit to a using a little botox and take the focus off how weird her lips have been looking when she moves her mouth

now that we are on the subject of botox would it be too young for a 24 year to have botox? i notice my facial skin is loose like i can pull it. The skin around my eyebrows are droopy.

I hate it when celebs deny plastic sugery. Heidi Montag, for example. What nose job? What boob job? Yeah.. we're not blind. If you're too embarrassed to admit you've had work done, then maybe you shouldn't do it when you're in the public eye. Just a thought.

actually, i've seen her several times at work, and she doesn't need plastic surgery. actually, she just needs to eat. i think her uber-skinniness makes her look way older than she really is.

For Nicole Kidman to deny it, is an insult to any with eyes. She looks like a shiny wax figure and is virtually unrecognizable from the girl in Far and Away.

I'm glad she's at least honest about it. I get so tired of the ones who deny it.
