Courteney Cox, 58, is open about where she went wrong.

In a recent interview with the U.K. daily The Times, the Friends star discussed aging, her “crazy” journey with injections, and living in her late 50s.

“Oh God, it’s so hard to even hear or say. I can’t believe it,” she said, noting that she takes no issue with getting older but is in awe of how quickly her 60s are approaching.

“There’s nothing wrong with being 60, I just can’t believe it. Time goes so fast,” she said.

According to Yahoo, Cox thinks that as she has gotten older, she has become more in tune with what truly matters to her.

“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,” she said.

Yet, she said that she struggled for a time to accept the physical changes that come with age.

“There was a time when you go, ‘Oh, I’m changing. I’m looking older.’ And I tried to chase that [youthfulness] for years,” she said.

Cox began receiving injections in her face to ease her stress. Yet, rather than finding the fountain of youth with injectables, Cox claims she started looking “really strange.”

“I didn’t realize that, ‘Oh sh** I’m actually looking really strange with injections and doing stuff to my face that I would never do now,'” she said.

Getting older in front of the world, many of whom remember Cox as a 30-year-old TV star, is no easy task. And everyone had a lot to say about her fresh style.

As others close to her started to speak up, she knew something had to change.

“I’d say, ‘The day you realize what your friends were talking about.’ Because people would talk about me, I think. But there was a period where I went, ‘I’ve got to stop. That’s just crazy,'” she said.

Of course, this didn’t totally cut off the discourse surrounding her looks. While it is never fun, she claims it is nothing compared to what is going on inside her head.

“The scrutiny is intense,” she said, “but I don’t know if it could be more intense than what I put on myself.”
