Our newest interview with Courteney Cox features questions posed by you, InStyle readers, and the Cougar Town actress answered all as candidly as ever—even the oft-dreaded Botox question! “Aging gracefully is one thing, but trying to slow it down is another. Sometimes I use Botox. Compared to most, I use it very sparingly,” she told us. “One time I did too much, though. I feel weird if I can’t move my face, and that one time I overdid it, I felt trapped in my own skin.” Another reader asked the actress if she’d ever considered a career change: “No—although there was a time when my dad thought I should get out. It was right before I got Friends, and I probably had a month to go before I was completely broke. At one point my dad called me and said, ‘You have always been a great salesman. I think it’s time you come home and sell swimming pools.’ I don’t think I would ever quit acting, but there are other things I am interested in. I wanted to be an architect, and I wish I knew more about landscaping. I think I’d be a good therapist too.” How psyched are we she didn’t stop to sell pools? Check out the complete interview in the August issue of InStyle, on newsstands Friday.
