Friends’ star Courtney Cox (above) has started worrying about getting older and not being the ‘hot young thing’ that she once was. The 46-year-old actor, who recently announced a trial separation from her husband David Arquette after 11 years together, has days when she gets down on herself about her appearance.
“Sometimes it’s a battle to accept you’re no longer the hot young thing. To realise you don’t attract people in the same way, it can be a bit sad,” the Sydney Morning Herald quoted her as telling OK! Magazine.
“It’s nice to feel sexy, even if it’s only a matter of perception. There are days when I get out of bed and look in the mirror and think I look awful. I get down on myself. But other days I get up and I feel happy,” she added.
Despite worrying about getting older, Cox has been given a confidence boost by her role in TV series Cougar Town— in which she plays divorcee Jules Cobb who dates younger men. “The producers have been great putting me in relationships with very handsome younger men,” Cox noted.
