Simon Cowell is done with face fillers.

The "America's Got Talent" judge revealed during a new interview with The Sun that his attitude toward fillers and Botox injections changed after he could no longer recognize himself.

The 62-year-old music mogul noted that the cosmetic treatments made him look "like something out of a horror film," and it was starting to scare his 8-year-old son Eric, whom he shares with fiancé Lauren Silverman.

"There was a stage where I might have gone a bit too far. I saw a picture of me from 'before' the other day, and didn't recognize it as me," Cowell told the outlet, adding that he decided to quit the injectables because "Eric was in hysterics" after noticing a difference in his face.

"Enough was enough. There is no filler in my face at all now. Zero," he added.

Cowell shared that he now focuses on making better food and drink choices instead of relying on injections.

"There was a phase where everyone was having their faces pumped full of this and the other," he explained. "But actually, for me now, a lot of it comes down to healthy eating and drinking tons of water."

During the interview, Cowell also opened up about his e-bike accidents in 2020 and earlier this year and the difficult recoveries that followed.

"I considered therapy for the first time when I broke my back because I was very, very, very, low," he said. "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."

Looking back, Cowell said it was a "low point" for him and "was on a lot of painkillers" but made a point to stop using them early to avoid going "down that road."

The TV personality shared that he still has to wear a back brace every time he goes out on his bike and will have to deal with "pretty big screws in my back" for the rest of his life but remains grateful that his accidents weren't worse than they were.

"I'm here, I'm alive. And I'm grateful," he said.

Cowell broke his back and had to undergo six-hour surgery after falling off his bike in an August 2020 accident. He was left bed-bound for a month, and it took him months to fully recover, forcing him to miss the rest of the season of "America's Got Talent."

In February, he was involved in another electric bike accident near his home in West London. The "American Idol" judge broke his arm but was released the night of the accident after getting a cast.

An unnamed source told Us Weekly at the time that Cowell was "lucky to be alive" because when the accident happened, he slipped and went flying over the handlebars. He reportedly insisted on continuing to use his bike but promised to start wearing a helmet.
