Courteney Cox covers Marie Claire’s Redefining Wellness issue
The new digital issue of Marie Claire is here, with a butter yellow Givenchy-clad Courteney Cox on the cover. The Friends actress, who’s been in the spotlight for three decades, reflects on many things that age has taught her, from taking a chance to leaning into fear. The founder of delightfully-scented sleek luxury household product brand Homecourt also made a surprising revelation, sharing that she got her first tattoo with her daughter Coco, actress Laura Dern, and Dern’s children Ellery and Jaya. They opted for a matching design incorporating the phrase “go long”—an important mantra for Cox—and also a fitting memory given that Coco is now off to college. Of the meaning behind the words, Cox told writer Chantal Fernandez, “My mother was a beautiful woman who did not have a lot of drive. I always wanted her to go long. Take a chance, take a risk, be bold.” See the feature, with imagery by Ramona Rosales and styling by Maryam Malakpour, here.
