Courteney Cox, the former Friends star, has said she is reconciled to looking older and regrets some procedures she had in the past to keep the wrinkles at bay.

Cox, 52, spoke out during an expedition with outdoor adventurer Bear Grylls in the Irish highlands, in which the pair abseiled down cliffs and shared maggots found in a rotting sheep.

“Getting older has not been ... I don’t think it’s the easiest thing. But I have learned lessons,” Cox said in the Running Wild with Bear Grylls episode that aired on NBC television in the US on Monday.

Cox, who spoke some years ago about using Botox and laser treatments to prolong her youthful looks, said she was now more relaxed.

“Sometimes you find yourself trying and then you look at a picture of yourself and go, ‘Oh, God.’ Like, you look horrible. I have done things that I regret, and luckily they’re things that dissolve and go away. So, um, that’s good, because it’s not always been my best look. So, now I just have a new motto: ‘Just let it be,’” she said.
