"It’s a domino effect," the 58-year-old told podcast hosts Kirbie Johnson and Sarah Tan Christensen. "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 don’t realize what it looks like to the outside person," she continued.

Cox has since taken a different approach to fillers.

"Thank God they are removable," the Scream actor shared. "I messed up a lot and now luckily … I was able to reverse most of that."

Cox said her attitude toward aging has changed considerably, as she now prefers to live in the moment rather than count the years: "Thinking I was getting older when I was really young, that’s just a bummer, a waste of time."

This isn't the first time Cox has opened up on the damaging impacts of over-idealizing youthfulness. Back in 2017, she admitted to NewBeauty that she had gotten all of her injections removed and was embracing a natural look.
