Hollywood has long been in thrall to the surgeon's scalpel, with most actresses succumbing to surgery in their late 20's. Kate Winslet, however, has vowed never to have any plastic surgery, arguing that an actress needs to use their facial muscles to act. Um, try telling that to Nicole Kidman. Nicole's addiction to plastic surgery has, ironically, lost her acting jobs in the past, as director's have complained that the Oscar winner cannot move her face due to her extensive Botox use. Kidman has recently admitted to over-using the poison, and is now apparently botulism free.
Kate told Vogue, 'I will never give in. It goes against my morals, the way that my parents brought me up and what I consider to be natural beauty, I am an actress, I don't want to freeze the expression of my face'. Fellow Brit actress and renowned beautiful person, Rachel Weisz has also come down in favour of the natural look, saying, 'people who look too perfect don't look sexy or particularly beautiful.'
Gwyneth Paltrow has also said that she would turn down plastic surgery and 'refuse to use silicone, Botox or any other of those gimmicks of pure vanity'. However, she admitted that she would think about having breast surgery after breastfeeding, claiming 'there's actually nothing else to restore the original condition, is there?'
Where do you stand on the surgery debate: do you consider corrective treatment the devil's work, or necessary to combat the signs of ageing?
