11 Celebrities Who Candidly Spoke Against Plastic Surgery
Famous individuals are constantly faced with the expectation of appearing flawless at all times. Despite the trend of some celebrities opting for surgical procedures to maintain a youthful appearance, others believe in embracing the natural aging process and letting their wrinkles show. Below a list of bold celebrity women who have chosen to forgo plastic surgery and prove that aging can be gracefully stunning.
1. Jamie Lee Curtis
The lead actress of the movie Freaky Friday is known for being candid and frank in her views regarding plastic surgery. She has publicly stated that she has tried these procedures but found them to be ineffective and now holds a negative view towards them. She stated, “The current trend of fillers and procedures, and this obsession with filtering, and the things that we do to adjust our appearance on Zoom are wiping out generations of beauty. Once you mess with your face, you can’t get it back.”
2. Jennifer Aniston
The highly acclaimed actress has confessed to undergoing a nose job for medical reasons, but when it comes to changing one’s facial features, she believes it appears desperate. “I think what I have been witness to, is seeing women trying to stay ageless with what they are doing to themselves. I am grateful to learn from their mistakes because I am not injecting anything into my face. They are trying to stop the clock and all you can see is an insecure person who won’t let themselves just age,” she expressed.
3. Drew Barrymore
The star of “Never Been Kissed” feels that aging should be celebrated and accepted instead of being feared. She stated, “I say, don’t fight the rings on the trunk of a tree. Just keep counting ‘em. The idea of not looking like myself scares me. I just think a person’s character is what’s interesting.”
4. Emma Thompson
The Academy Award winner, at the age of 62, still radiates beauty and has no intention of undergoing any surgical procedures. “I’m not fiddling about with myself. We’re in this awful youth-driven thing now where everybody needs to look 30 at 60. This is the law of diminishing returns. The trick is to age honestly and gracefully and make it look great so that everyone looks forward to it,” she explained.
5. Meryl Streep
The lead actress in It’s Complicated possesses a distinctive appearance and steadfastly refuses to conform to Hollywood’s beauty norms. She has made her exceptional beauty her signature and has no interest in plastic surgery. “I just don’t get it. You have to embrace getting older,” she stated.
6. Kristen Stewart
The highly honored actress confesses that the mere notion of altering her appearance terrifies her. “I am so freaked out by the idea of doing anything. And maybe that’s completely arrogant but I don’t want to change anything about myself. I think the women who do are losing their minds. It’s vandalism,” she said.
7. Halle Berry
The X-Men actress holds the belief that aging is an inevitable part of life and must be accepted. In her words, “Aging is natural, and that’s going to happen to all of us. I just want to always look like myself, even if that’s an older version of myself. I think when you do too much of that cosmetic stuff, you become somebody else in a way.”
8. Heidi Klum
The well-known model is proud of her natural appearance and has no plans to alter it. She stated, “I’m proud to be able to say, in this day and age, I haven’t done anything. Everyone has a view of what’s not pretty and plastic surgery just doesn’t look pretty to me.”
9. Salma Hayek
The actress believes that each woman has the right to strive to maintain their youth, however she personally is against plastic surgery. According to her, “It’s like the uniform of a generation. And it’s not necessarily beautiful. It’s not wrinkled-looking, but it’s not beautiful.”
10. Julianne Moore
The actress, who is 62 years old, is confident that she will never get cosmetic surgery as it could impact her career. She stated, “Personally, I’ve not had anything done. My job means too much to me. It’s important to be able to play women at all points in their lives and I don’t like products that freeze your face in time. I need to show expressions.”
11. Angelina Jolie
While she respects all takes on plastic surgery, the 47-year-old actress is also accepting when it comes to the process of aging. She has opened up about how her mother’s death at the age of 56 has helped her reframe how she views getting older. “I do like being older. I feel much more comfortable in my forties than I did when I was younger,” she confessed. “Maybe because my mom didn’t live very long, so there’s something about age that feels like a victory instead of a sadness for me,” she added.
