"There was a stage where I might have gone a bit too far," Cowell dished to The Sun about the injectables. "I saw a picture of me from 'before' the other day and didn't recognize it as me."
"Eric was in hysterics," the record executive joked about his little boy whom he shares with fiancée Lauren Silverman. "Enough was enough. There is no filler in my face at all now. Zero."
Now that the America's Got Talent panelist has completely stopped getting facial treatments, he has been focusing on being internally healthy. Cowell has been dealing with multiple physical set backs after breaking his back in a bicycle accident in August of 2020 and also breaking his arm in a fall earlier this year.
"I considered therapy for the first time when I broke my back because I was very, very, very, low," he confessed. "I felt very depressed because I didn't know how to explain it to Eric [that] I couldn't do all the things I wanted to with him. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to walk again, to ever play football with him."
Cowell admitted in the healing process he "was on a lot of painkillers" but cut himself off in order to not go "down that road" of possible addiction.
"I'm still wearing a back brace which I have to wear when I go out on my bike, and there are pretty big screws in my back, and that's for life," he said. "But I'm here, I'm alive. And I'm grateful," the Scary Movie 3 star explained of his recovery process.
Despite the hurdles he's had to overcome in getting back to normal, he vowed to himself he would be looking as fit as possible. "I made a promise to myself I'd be fitter than I was before I had the accident. Sure enough, that's what happened," he explained.
