Scoop: Courteney Cox embracing ‘smile lines’ these days

It’s almost revolutionary: Courteney Cox is bucking the Hollywood trend and going natural.


In a cover story for New Beauty magazine, the 53-year-old actress — whose sweetheart Johnny McDaid is a mere 40 — said she has stopped trying to look younger by using facial fillers.

“You need movement in your face, especially if you have thin skin like I do,” she said. “Those aren’t wrinkles — they’re smile lines. I’ve had to learn to embrace movement and realize that fillers are not my friend.”

Comparison photos on the UK Daily Mail website illustrate quite a difference between today and a 2015 shot in which the actress indeed looks puffy and stilted.

Cox said her odd appearance didn’t happen all at once, but it was something she noticed after injections and treatments here and there built up: “You have no idea because it’s gradual until you go, ‘Oh, s—, this doesn’t look right.’”

In other age-related comments, the mother of 13-year-old Coco with ex-husband David Arquette also said she would love to have another baby: “I could carry someone else’s egg. I may be one of the older people doing it, but I would love to, with Johnny that is.”

MIRREN PRAISES DIVERSITY

Helen Mirren is finding progress when it comes to age and beauty.

But the Oscar winner said that in 2014, when she was 69 and cosmetics giant L’Oreal asked her to be a brand ambassador, she thought, “it was about bloody time!”

“I thought at last there has been a shift [in the fashion industry] — I’m talking about age and beauty, but also diversity,” the English actress said to an audience at the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity on Tuesday.

She said that when she lived with fashion photographer James Wedge in the 1970s, “he could not get a black girl on the front of a magazine. Now, finally, the breakthrough has happened. … And now it’s great to see older women, different genders, different religions — the whole diversity of the world we are living in.”

QUICK TAKES

East Bay fine dinnerware manufacturer Jered’s Pottery announced that Brandon Jew, chef-owner of Mister Jiu’s in San Francisco, won its third Clay With Your Food competition — a contest of cooking and ceramic skills — taking honors over chef Jeff Russell (of the in-progress Charlie Palmer Steak in Napa), and chef Adam Tortosa, who’s about to open Robin in Hayes Valley; judges were food writer Rebecca Flint Marx, chef Daniel Patterson and painter Victor Reyes.
