London, (ANI): Courteney Cox decided not to use a body double for a scene in TV drama 'Cougar Town", which required her to strip. The actress claimed she wanted to present real issues facing ageing women. She revealed that the scene, which showed her stretch marks and arm fat, shocked her former 'Friends" co-star Jennifer Aniston.
“I think it was an important thing to do. This show talks about real things and real experiences, so I think I had to. I know my friend Jennifer Aniston was shocked I did it," the Daily Express quoted her as saying. She added: "Some people may not want to show parts of them that are not the very best and that''s alright. I decided to show, and I don't care. It was important to show the real side of being 40."
Meanwhile, Cox said she pays extreme attention to her fitness. She said: "I try really hard. I walk, I run, I do elliptical (cross-trainer), I do band work, weights and dance aerobics. I play tennis and I eat really well. But I was also lit very well. Don't mistake Hollywood lighting for reality!"
