“I’m as natural as I can be, I feel better because I look like myself. I think that I now look more like the person that I was. I hope I do.”
The Scarem alum realized she did not ‘look right’ after hiding her real self
“The next thing you know, you’re layered and layered and layered. You have no idea because it’s gradual until you go, ‘Oh shit, this doesn’t look right.’ And it’s worse in pictures than in real life.”
After the public started scrutinizing her new look she realized she had to stop chasing a youthful appearance by getting loads of filler, Courteney stated on Sunday Times last year.
“There was a time when you go, ‘Oh, I’m changing. I’m looking older.’ And I tried to chase that [youthfulness] for years. And I didn’t realize that, oh shit, I’m actually looking really strange with injections and doing stuff to my face that I would never do now.”
However, she finally opens up about going overboard with facial filler in the Gloss Angeles podcast revealing her dark truth and insecurities.
“It’s a domino effect. You don’t realize that you look a little off, so then you keep doing more cause you look normal to yourself,”
“You look in the mirror and go, ‘Oh, that looks good,’ you think, and you don’t realize what it looks like to the outside person,” she went on, adding that she ultimately got “too many fillers” and “messed up a lot.”

“Thank god they are removable. I think I messed up a lot. … Luckily I was able to reverse most of that, now I’m actually just older.”
“Thinking I was getting older when I was really young, that’s just a bummer, a waste of time,”
