There are some people who tend to age gracefully and others who go kicking and screaming into their senior years. Every once in a while, we also see someone that just seems to defy the odds, and Courteney Cox is one of those people. The Friends star seems to have everything going for her as far as genetics are concerned and likely, she lives a life that lends itself to showing off her assets on occasion. That became clear when she posted an Instagram video and showed the world her abs.
Even though she is 55-years-old, she wasn’t afraid to share an amazing video in a bikini. She is also defying gravity, because it shows her coming up out of the pool and putting on a coverup, grabbing a drink and taking a sip. The entire thing is reversed.
It isn’t the cinematography that grabs our attention, however, it is her physique. She looks incredible for any age!
Cox is referring to Missy Elliot’s Work It when she says: “Oh so now I finally get what @missymisdemeanorelliott meant by put your thing down, flip it, and reverse it….only took me ten years.”
Many of her celebrity friends came on to tell her how much they loved the video: “This is epic,” wrote Kaley Cuoco, while Erin Foster added, “I don’t know what’s cooler, this video or how good your body looks.”
Interestingly, the actress had also recently revealed that she had her fillers dissolved. Apparently, they “didn’t look like [herself]”.
“I would say it’s a common thing you go through as you age, especially in Hollywood,” the 54-year-old disclosed when speaking to PEOPLE. “You have to accept getting older, and that’s something that I had a hard time doing.”
The actress has also become the new face of L’Oréal Paris’ Super Preference #OWNINGIT campaign and said that the fillers went away because she “wasn’t pleased with myself and the way I looked.”
“[I tried] to keep up with time in a way that was anything other than maintenance. I didn’t realise it until one day I kind of stepped back and went, ‘Oh shit. I don’t look like myself.’”
It seems that she has found her confidence now that the fillers are gone.
“So now I just embrace who I am and getting older with what God gave me, not what I was trying to change. I kind of own everything. And the things that I am not as comfortable with myself, they’re things that I continue to work on to grow and change. I am at a stage of my life where it’s very easy to be comfortable with who I am and who I’ve become and who I strive to be.”
