Former Friends star Courteney Cox admits that she tried Botox and hated its muscle-paralysing effects.

Cox 44, said after using the face-freezing injection she lost her ability to make facial expressions and it hampered her acting skills. reports her saying: "Botox? I think it's fantastic and also horrible. I went to this doctor once and he was like, 'Oh, let me do it just here and here and here'. And I was miserable. I mean, I'm an actor, I've got to be able to move my face.

"When people start messing with their foreheads and can't lift their eyebrows, that's weird. It's not that I haven't tried Botox - but I hated it."

Fortunately for Cox, she has found a down-to-earth husband in actor David Arquette, who is happy for his stunning wife to embrace the ageing process.

She said: "He loves the ageing process. He thinks it's beautiful."

Despite previous reports of trouble in their nine-year marriage, Cox insisted she was more in love than ever saying: "It's weird, because I'm so in love with David right now. I'm starting to really appreciate how 'there' he is for me.

"But in any relationship, there are times that you're disconnected. You can see how relationships end if you don't work through it."

The couple have a four-year-old daughter, Coco.
