"Cougar Town" star Courteney Cox likes a little Botox. And she's not embarrassed to admit it.
But she's also one of the smart actresses who doesn't overdo the paralytic agent that softens wrinkles by freezing the muscles that cause them.
That way, she doesn't end up looking emotionless and expressionless, which certainly helps her animated comedic performances on her hit TV show. "Cougar Town" is one of The Dish Rag's guilty pleasures. There, we said it. And it will also help her do those OMG-is-a-scary-psycho-killer-after-me-again expressions in "Scream 4."
Even in this recent photo you can see that Courteney has kept some movement in her upper forehead.
This makes her look so much prettier and more natural than... I probably don't have to name names. You already know who the over-Botoxed zombie actresses (and actors) are.
"Aging gracefully is one thing, but trying to slow it down is another," Courtney tells InStyle. "Sometimes I use Botox. Compared to most, I use it very sparingly.
One time I did too much, though. I feel weird if I can't move my face, and that one time I overdid it, I felt trapped in my own skin. I don't have a problem with any of that stuff; if it makes you feel better about yourself and it's done properly, then fine."
How do you feel about Courteney using -- and admitting to using -- Botox? Refreshingly honest or TMI?
