Her blast from the past commercial goes to on say how Tampax can make you change the way you feel about your period.
“Menopause can change the way you feel about getting older,” Cox says after hitting her fist on the wall. “Menopause will eat you alive! It’s horrible. Nothing else can do that.”
The younger version of Cox says, “Feeling clean is more comfortable. Plus, more women use Tampax more than any other tampon or pad.”
“Plus, you get the added bonus of drier skin and getting bald patches, now that’s something,” the 58-year-old jokes. “Remember, there is nothing good about menopause. It can actually change the way you feel about getting older.”

Cox isn’t the only celeb to speak out about menopause.
Last year, Salma Hayek (56) spoke out about her experience with menopause and how it made her breasts grow.
“The boobs grow a lot,” Hayek said on Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett Smith. “For some women they get smaller. But there are some women that when you gain weight, your boobs grow, and other women that when you have children and you breastfeed your boobs grow and they don’t go back down, and then in some of the cases when you are in menopause they grow again. And I just happen to be one of those women where it happened in every, single step!”
