Silverstone revealed that her iconic ‘90s hit film almost didn’t happen because studios at the time doubted audiences wanted to see a movie about a young girl.

Despite the near miss, Silverstone says the movie “changed my life” and she is now incredibly proud of her involvement.

“It was really weird. I was like, ‘Isn’t this illegal?’ It was really awkward,” he said and exclaimed, “She was 14! She was like my little sister.”

**53 year old actress Courtney Cox says she regrets the stuff that she did to her face to try to fight aging…things like injections and fillers, because it ended up making her look worse.
She says, quote, “I grew up thinking that appearance was the most important thing. That’s kind of sad because it got me in trouble. I was trying so hard to keep up, and I actually made things worse.
“The next thing you know, you’re layered and layered and layered. You have no idea because it’s gradual until you go, ‘Oh [shoot], this doesn’t look right.’ And it’s worse in pictures than in real life. One friend [told me], ‘Whoa, no more!'”
Fortunately, she was able to fix it by having the fillers dissolved. She says, quote, “I’m as natural as I can be. I feel better because I look like myself. I think that I now look more like the person that I was. I hope I do.”
