Kim Cattrall Says No To Plastic Surgery

Despite playing Botox-loving Samantha in Sex and the City, 54 year-old Kim Cattrall says she wants to grow old gracefully and is refusing to ever have plastic surgery.

“I want to embrace ageing,” says Cattrall, pictured above in LA last week. “I look at people like Judi Dench, who’s in her 70s, and I think, ‘What the hell am I frightened of?”

“I think a forehead without any lines doesn’t tell me they’ve lived a life,” says the actress famous for her role as sexually adventurous Samantha Jones in the Sex and the City series and movies. However she admits to trying Botox in her forehead but says surgery is taking it too far.

“I don’t want to look in the mirror and not recognise who’s looking back.”

Cattrall’s latest film, Meet Monica Velour, sees her in several scenes without any makeup, where she plays a 50-something porn star called Monica Velour.

“I didn’t know whether I could do it, because to be that stripped of makeup, clothes, shoes, in Hollywood, you have to be beautiful,” she told the LA Times.

“You have to be desirable. And that’s why so many woman of my age or even younger are pushed to Botox and plastic surgery, all the things that people say, ‘Why do women do this?’ Where do you go in your 50s in your career?”

What do you think? Would you like to see more women in Hollywood grow old gracefully?
