Courteney Cox is 48-years-old, and hotter than ever!
The ‘Cougar Town’ actress opens up in the new anti-aging magazine New You, about the help she gets in staying young looking. “You know what, IÃ¢â¬â¢m game for anything. IÃ¢â¬â¢m very open to trying to prolong the inevitable.ÃÂ IÃ¢â¬â¢m a big laser believer I really think they are the wave of the future.ÃÂ I just did Ulthera which is supposed to produce collagen. And IÃ¢â¬â¢m about to do Fraxel, which will get rid of all these brown spots off my arms, chest and face.”
Despite the gorgeous, orchestrated shots of the polished Cox she feels most beautiful stripped of the glitz and glamour.
‘I feel the best after IÃ¢â¬â¢ve worked out, when I have no make-up on and my skin is flushed,’ said the raven-haired stunner.
‘ThereÃ¢â¬â¢s so many beautiful people and thereÃ¢â¬â¢s so much pressure you put on yourself but David [Arquette, her ex-husband] has always said to me, youÃ¢â¬â¢ve got to accept weÃ¢â¬â¢re all gonna age and just do it gracefully. And the sooner you accept, the easier your life is.’
One major tip from the mother-of-one is moisturizing and drinking a lot of water: ‘I donÃ¢â¬â¢t drink near enough. IÃ¢â¬â¢m on this kick where IÃ¢â¬â¢m gonna try to drink 64 ounces a day. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s so hard. I can get the first 32 down, no problem. That second bottle is tough but when I do, I feel different.’
And while Courteney is in awe of great Hollywood beauties like Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn, and Elizabeth Taylor, it’s Helen Mirren that really impressed her.
Cox said: ‘She’s so sexy. You know when people say you get better with age, thatÃ¢â¬â¢s the perfect example. SheÃ¢â¬â¢s just a bad ass in every way. She could rival the most gorgeous 30 year old. SheÃ¢â¬â¢s just so confident, and letÃ¢â¬â¢s face it, itÃ¢â¬â¢s always about confidence.’
And confidence will definitely be required of the Scream star for her fourth season of Cougar Town – dubbed ‘the year of cleavage’ – airing on TBS this Tuesday.
‘In one episode, Jules and her new husband Grayson [Josh Hopkins] have “Naked Day,”‘ Courteney announced at the winter Television Critics Association press tour.
‘ItÃ¢â¬â¢s a way to keep their marriage fresh….There will be not one scene where you wonÃ¢â¬â¢t see my boobs. I want to start taking the focus away from my face, so IÃ¢â¬â¢m having them move it down. I figure as I continue to get older, eventually I will be fully nude. I hope it works.’
Her character’s onscreen husband has also been Courteney’s rumoured boyfriend since 2011 after the affectionate pair were spotted taking three tropical holidays together.
She looks great, and maybe now we know why! Lasers and cream and wonder serum! (Hell, I’d do the same thing if I ended up stopping the hands of time, like she has!)
