On Ageing and (This TIme Around) Courtney Cox

There's been quite a bit of chatter about Courtney Cox's appearance, spurred on by an interview she gave where she talks about accepting ageing (do we have an alternative?) and deciding to stop tampering with her looks. In the linked article, she does look a little different, but like a lot of facial work, it's hard to tell quite what's happened.

Renee Zellweger's another one. She's promoting the new Bridget Jones movie so she's all over the place, with her new face and the inevitable snipes in the papers. Again, not quite sure what she's had done but her face has definitely changed from a few years ago. If you met her on the street, never having clapped eyes on her before, you wouldn't think she had a strange face though. 

Not like some I could mention...........


Isn't it funny that the men who've had work come in for a bit of bad press then it's all forgotten. Manilow is still walking around looking like this but we no longer hear about it. And don't tell me that Simon Cowell, (back on American TV with America's Got Talent) hasn't had some filler in those chipmunk cheeks. Cowell admits to having twice yearly Botox treatments, but methinks he's taken it to the next level now and I'm not convinced it's an improvement.  

I don't know what it is about cheek fillers, but from Madonna to Priscilla Presley, they seem to make everyone look worse. 


I must admit though, having reached the age where the face starts changing (read, collapsing) I find myself in front of a mirror, yanking my skin back towards my ears on a regular basis. I don't have many wrinkles but the lines from nose to mouth are a dead giveaway and gawd knows what's happening in the neck area. A bit of cheek filler might work wonders, but a) nobody else seems to care how I look, and b) my career doesn't really depend on my appearance. 

If I could find someone in about ten years time to take care of my jaw line in the manner of Helen Mirren though, that would do nicely. The woman is age appropriate, with lines that tell stories, but that jaw line? No way is that nature's work, but it looks fab. 

 I'll have what she's having.

  1. When I was younger I used to think I could NEVER consider having something done - but the older I get, the more I understand it. Will I ever consider it? I don't know, but I know I'm not saying "never" anymore!

    1. LOL Gigi. Good attitude! I may never have anything "done", but I sure as heck will not rule it out. I've never thought that human skin was really intended to last 70-100 years, so some supplemental remedies along the way are not uncalled for.

  2. You can always tell by looking at the neck! Face & neck don't always match!
    Manilow definitely looked better before his face lift. Looks like a ghost now!

    1. Apparently you can get neck lifts too now Maggie! That somehow sounds even more painful than a facelift. I need a handlift though.

  3. I agree completely on the Helen Miren comment. It's the saggy jawline (I'm age 50) tat bothers me. Also the lines from mouth to nose...have turned downward in the last year, so dimples now read as 45 degree angle downward that make me look angry.

  4. Jawline and neck. Yep.

    Btw, when you find a 'remedy', let me know?
