Sydney: ‘Friends’ star Courtney Cox has started worrying about getting older and not being the ‘hot young thing’ she once was.

The 46-year-old actress - who recently announced a trial separation from her husband David Arquette after 11 years together - has days when she gets ‘down’ on herself about her appearance.

“Sometimes it`s a battle to accept you`re no longer the hot young thing. To realize you don`t attract people in the same way, it can be a bit sad,” the Sydney Morning Herald quoted her as telling OK! Magazne.

“It`s nice to feel sexy, even if it`s only a matter of perception. There are days when I get out of bed and look in the mirror and think I look awful. I get down on myself. But other days I get up and I feel happy,” she added.

Despite worrying about getting older, Cox has been given a confidence boost by her role in TV series ‘Cougar Town’ - in which she plays divorcee Jules Cobb who dates younger men.

“The producers have been great putting me in relationships with very handsome younger men. It`s a nice boost to the ego,” Cox noted.

She has also played down suggestions she and David will definitely divorce, insisting they both need some time to assess their relationship.
