Jennifer Aniston has no plans to follow the crowd. The 45-year-old actress says there’s no way she’s following the trend in Hollywood and getting Botox. On Friday, Yahoo! Beauty posted beauty guru Bobbi Brown’s interview with the “Horrible Bosses” star, who revealed she’d have to answer to fiance Justin Theroux if she ever messed with her face.
"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 s--t into my face. I see them and my heart breaks," the actress said.
Aniston also said she thinks Botox and surgery can sometimes have a reverse effect and actually make women look older. "I think, 'Oh God if you only know how much older you look.' They are trying to stop the clock and all you can see is an insecure person who won't let themselves just age,” she said. “I also have a fiancé who will put a gun to my head if I touch my face in any way.”
She rattled off a list of iconic natural beauties, like Gloria Steinem, Diane Keaton, and Annette Bening, who have all aged gracefully without touching their faces.
“All of these fabulous fearless women who are flawless, they embrace it!” Aniston said. “You know, to each their own; I don’t judge it if you do it, but sometimes I wish I could beg the people I know, who I am very near and dear to, to not touch their face.”
This isn’t the first time the former “Friends” star has given her opinion regarding the popular age-defying procedure. In fact, she’s asked about this topic a lot. Earlier this year, Aniston told In Style she believe in “no-tox,” then went on to say that she thinks Botox distorts peoples’ faces and makes them look older. “You look older, in my opinion, when you can’t move and don’t let your natural expressions have their way,” she explained.
The outspoken actress even announced to People that she’d take wrinkles over Botox any day. “Nobody wants wrinkles, but Botox looks terrible,” she said in April.
While Aniston touted a good facial and a derma roller, she stopped short of endorsing any of the popular plastic procedures. But she wasn’t always as anti-Botox as she is now.
In 2011, the actress told InStyle that many people assumed she followed the Botox trend in Hollywood. “People think that I do a lot of injections, but I don’t,” she said. But she also admitted that she had tried Botox and fillers in the past.
“I’m not saying that I haven’t tried it…but I see how it’s a slippery slope,” she said. “All that cosmetic stuff looks ridiculous on me.”
