Courteney Cox decided to make a splash on her 56th birthday.
The former Friends star, whose birthday was on Monday, shared a clip of herself running in a bikini — Baywatch style — as the New Radicals song ‘You Get What You Give’ plays in the background.
“Gracefully diving into this next year,” she captioned the clip where she eventually dives into a body of water and comes up smiling.
Cox’s many celebrity friends, including Lisa Kudrow, Kate Hudson, Octavia Spencer and Brandi Carlile sent their love. Whitney Cummings called her a “legend.”
And her fans agreed.
“OMG to be able to run in a bikini and look that good is the dream - love you and happy birthday,” one person commented.
It was little more than a year ago when she acknowledged she was the most confident she’d ever been.
“I kind of own everything,” she told People in February 2019.
“And the things that I am not as comfortable with myself, they’re things that I continue to work on to grow and change.
“I think I am at a stage of my life where it’s very easy to be comfortable with who I am and who I’ve become and who I strive to be.”
In the same interview, the then new face of L’Oreal Paris said she had, a few years earlier, started getting injectable fillers in her face to try and continue looking younger. But she said she didn’t like the result.
“[I tried] to keep up with time in a way that was anything other than maintenance,” she said.
“I didn’t realise it until one day I kind of stepped back and went, ‘Oh s***. I don’t look like myself.’”
At that point, Cox said she had gone without fillers for two years.
The Cougar Town alum is expected back on TV soon, in a TV movie called Shining Vale, about a family that moves into a cursed house.
She’s also scheduled to star in the scripted version of Last Chance U, a Netflix documentary series about the lives of student athletes at community colleges.
