Courtney Cox said getting cosmetic fillers was her biggest beauty regret after dissolving them in 2017.
In an interview on the "Gloss Angeles" podcast that aired on March 7, Cox said getting fillers was a "domino effect" that caused her to undergo too many injections.
"You don't realize that you look a little off, so then you keep doing more 'cause you look normal to yourself," Cox said.
She added: "You look in the mirror and go, 'Oh, that looks good, and you don't realize what it looks like to the outside person."
Cox dissolved her fillers in 2017.

"After dissolving with hyaluronidase and ultrasound frequency treatments to remove all the filler," she added. "Never again."

She added: "My face was so fucked, it was a bummer. I'm almost afraid to do it again—I swear, I think things are still in my face."

"I was really fit, but I didn't have boobs. So I got them. Everything went well, and I was happy with them," Patrick wrote. Fast forward about 3 years to early 2018, and I noticed that my hair was not as healthy and was breaking off. I also gained a few pounds and had no luck losing it."

According to Marie Claire, Teigen said the following year that some people didn't believe she had her implants removed — so she shared photos of her stitches and scars from the procedure to prove it.
In April 2017, Melanie Griffith said she hoped she would look "more normal" after dissolving her fillers.
In an interview with Net-a-Porter's Porter magazine, per Toronto.com, the actress said she didn't realize her cosmetic procedures were noticeable until people started talking about it.
She also said she'd already spent two to three years getting the work reversed.
"I didn't see it until people started saying, 'Oh my God, what has she done?' I was so hurt I went to a different doctor and he started dissolving all of this shit that this other woman doctor put in," she said. "I had done to my lips too. So awful. Hopefully, I look more normal now."

"This journey has been one of growth, self discovery, self acceptance and most importantly self-love. This picture above was taken two months after my explant surgery and I think you can tell just how happy I am to finally be fully me," she wrote about a photo of herself laying in the sand.
In June 2021, Tisdale wrote on her Instagram story that she had "natural boobs" again after removing her implants and becoming pregnant, according to People.
"Life is funny," she added.

The former Spice Girl penned a letter to her 18-year-old self for Vogue UK in 2017 and handed down some advice about her breasts.
"And I should probably say, don't mess with your boobs. All those years I denied it – stupid. A sign of insecurity. Just celebrate what you've got."
According to the New Zealand Herald, she told Vogue in 2011 that her implants were "torpedo bazookas." In 2014, she told Allure that she had them removed, but didn't specify when or why.

The music executive told The Sun in August 2022 that he didn't recognize old photos of himself and admitted he "might have gone a bit too far."
"There was a stage where I might have gone a bit too far. I saw a picture of me from 'before' the other day, and didn't recognise it as me first of all," he said. "[Cowell's son] Eric was in hysterics. Enough was enough. There is no filler in my face at all now. Zero."
He added: "There was a phase where everyone was having their faces pumped full of this and the other. But actually, for me now, a lot of it comes down to healthy eating and drinking tonnes of water."
