Naomi Watts is the latest star to go on and on about how much she loves aging naturally and how doesn’t believe in plastic surgery. The difference is, I actually kind of believe her, for some reason. Maybe it’s because I really dig Naomi as just like, a lady in general. I met her a few years back and she was really sweet, quite shy and actually told me to go write a book. I haven’t done that yet, but it’s the thought that counts, I guess. Anyway, unlike her BFF Nicole Kidman, who’s pumped her face so full of Botox she’s like her own Madame Tussaud’s wax figure, Naomi prefers to go for the more natural look so that she can actually do her job as an actress and emote.
From Australia’s Good Health:
“Most of the characters I play are going through some kind of emotional turmoil, so my job requires me to have expression,” she said. “If my face is frozen, what right do I have to play that part?”
“All the women who haven’t done anything to their faces are still able to play great roles. And some of the ones who have done something have messed it up – they look freakish. Anyway, for me it’s about playing women with rich lives – and the longer the life, the deeper the wrinkles. [But] never say never – and I certainly don’t judge anyone who does it.”
Fair enough. I wouldn’t be a very good feminist if I bitched about anyone’s choice to do whatever the hell they want with their face – even if it does make them look like a demented clown – and a little something here and there if it makes you feel more confident in your appearance is fine. I just really dig getting older and I can’t wait for grey hair and wrinkles and shit. It means you’ve lived a life! Then again, ask me again in 10 years when the crow’s feet are starting to take over and we’ll see how I feel then.
