Former Botox devotee Teri Hatcher has stopped using the drug to keep her face fresh and says she recently tweeted photos of her unfrozen face to show what real beauty is!
Hollywood may be the Botox capital of the world, but there are also plenty of stars who have sworn off the facial freezer! In fact, there are plenty of celebs who are happy to embrace their face as they get older!
In August, Desperate Houewives star Teri Hatcher tweeted photos of her clearly Botox free face and said at the Sept. 25 LACMA gala her reason for this was, “I just had this kind of click of awareness of ‘What is the real person? What is beauty? Is that person beautiful in that poster but this person in the bathroom isn’t beautiful?’ Like, where does it go … It was more intended to start a conversation with women about the illusion of beauty and where beauty should be concentrated and come from.”
Teri admits to using Botox and fillers in the past, but says she is done with them these days.
She is not alone either. In September, Elle cover girl Julia Roberts said she was anti-Botox because she wants her children to be able to tell when she’s happy or sad.
On the other side of the fence are stars like Jenny McCarthy, who is happy to discuss her Botox use. The always outspoken Jenny may not be a fan of vaccine needles but she has said of the facial immobilizer, “I love Botox, I absolutely love it. I get it minimally, so I can still move my face. But I really do think it’s a savior.”
Neither of these camps are alone either!
CHECK OUT THESE STARS WHO HAVE ADMITTED TO HAVING BOTOX!
- Courteney Cox: “I don’t have a problem with any of that stuff; if it makes you feel better about yourself and it’s done properly, then fine.”
- Charice: The 18-year-old Glee star admitted to getting Botox, “to look fresh on camera.”
- Kim Kardashian: “I am not against Botox, and I would never judge anyone else for getting any kind of surgical or non-surgical procedure.”
- Virginia Madsen: “I made a lot of choices to keep myself youthful and strong. I work out. I eat good foods. And I also get injectables.”
- Lisa Rinna:I’ve had too much [botox] this is for you!”
- Vanessa Williams: “Twice a year I receive BOTOX injections from a doctor whom I trust very much.”
- Kim Cattrall: “I have a big crease between my eyebrows and I use Botox to get rid of that.”
CHECK OUT THE REST OF THE STARS WHO WILL NEVER GET BOTOX AND FIND OUT WHY THEY WON’T!
- Salma Hayek: “I think it’s terrible these girls in their late 20s injecting their faces and lips … one told me, ‘If I kill my muscles now, I’ll never get wrinkles. ‘Can you imagine?”
- Meryl Streep: “To each his own. I really understand the chagrin that accompanies aging, especially for a woman, but I think people look funny when they freeze their faces. In Los Angeles there’s a lot of that. I pick up on the part that doesn’t move on a face. I’m immediately drawn to it and that is the opposite of what you’re intending. You pull focus to the area that’s been worked on.”
- Rachel Weisz: “Acting is all about expression; why would you want to iron out a frown?”
- Susan Sarandon: “You can see I haven’t had Botox or these lines wouldn’t be here, but when you do that it becomes very mask -like and that frightens me. I have an advantage if I’m the only one that actually looks 60, then I’ll get all those parts because there won’t be any actresses that look 60 around.”
- Drew Barrymore: “F— surgery!” says Barrymore. “I’m so curious as to what’s going to happen naturally that I can’t imagine wanting to alter things just yet. And to all those women putting botulism in their faces – we don’t know what the long-term effects are, so stop! I’d rather look like a basset hound than do that to my face!”
- Tina Fey: “You can point any kind of laser at my face, but I don’t think Botox is for me. I think it is bad. People who have too much, they look like their faces are full of candles — a shiny, shiny face.”
- Kate Winslet: “I have wrinkles here, which are very evident. And I will particularly say when I look at movie posters. ‘You guys have airbrushed my forehead. Please can you change it back?’ I’d rather be the woman they’re saying ‘She’s looking older’ about than ‘ She’s looking stoned.’”
