Courteney Cox On Emmy Snubs & Aging

Courteney Cox — former "Friend" and star of ABC's hit new comedy "Cougar Town" — is speaking out about being the only member of the "Friends" ensemble to never receive a Primetime Emmy nomination.

"My ego got really bruised. When everyone did but me, that doesn't feel good at all," Courteney said in an interview with Emmy Magazine. "There were certain years I thought, 'Maybe I have a shot,' like the Monica-Chandler years. But I don't know how it happens and why… maybe I wasn't ready."

Courteney, 46, looks simply stunning on the cover of Issue No.4 of 2010's Emmy Magazine series, but told the mag that "aging is nobody's friend."

"One second ago I was the youngest person on the set, and now I'm the oldest," she said. "I'm so old, my joints hurt when I keep my legs crossed a certain way for too long. I need glasses to see a movie, to see the computer and to read a book. I was like really?"

The blue-eyed brunette also spoke about her reasons for not pursuing big screen films like her best friend and former "Friends" co-star, Jennifer Aniston, and how her confidence has increased with age.

'I always talked myself out of going in to read. I don't know if I had that much confidence," Courteney said. "I was always thinking that I needed to do something else, be more mysterious… [Today] I'm much more content."

Emmy Magazine's Issue #4 for 2010 featuring Courteney, as well as Betty White and Jimmy Smits, is available on newsstands now.
