Courteney Cox-Arquette has revealed she felt “trapped in her own skin” when she used too much Botox.

The 46-year-old Cougar Town star told InStyle magazine she is now careful not to overdo the anti-ageing procedure.

She confessed: “Ageing gracefully is one thing, but trying to slow it down is another. Sometimes I use Botox. Compared to most, I use it very sparingly.”

She added: “One time I did too much, though. I feel weird if I can’t move my face, and that one time I overdid it, I felt trapped in my own skin.”

The former Friends star, who married actor David Arquette in 1999, also revealed her husband is a hopeless handyman and can’t even change a light bulb.

Courteney said: “I’ve never been with a man who’s handy. If we didn’t live together, David wouldn’t even notice if a light bulb had burned out.

“I have amassed one of the greatest tool kits ever. I used to be extremely handy fixing sprinklers – until they got so complicated.

“Oh, and I can light an outdoor gas heater – the secret is you have to hold the button down longer than most men seem to be able to.”
