Jennifer Aniston slams plastic surgery
Jennifer Aniston has spoken candidly about her dislike for cosmetic surgery, saying there's no way she would go under the knife.
The former Friends star says there's pressure in Hollywood to stay ageless, and says watching her friends try to fight nature has really put her off cosmetic surgery.
"I am grateful to learn from their mistakes, because I am not injecting s--- into my face,'' Aniston said in the Yahoo Beauty interview.
The 45-year-old actress tells make-up artist Bobbi Brown she is a fan of natural ageing, but wishes more of her friends could embrace their face without using things such as botox.
''I see them and my heart breaks. I think, 'Oh god, if you only know how much older you look','' she says.
''They are trying to stop the clock and all you can see is an insecure person who won't let themselves just age,'' says Aniston.
''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.''
Aniston, who normally remains very private about her relationship with 43-year-old Justin Theroux, says her fiance is another reason she would never consider botox or plastic surgery.
''I also have a fiance who will put a gun to my head if I touch my face in any way,'' she says.
While she won't alter her face with botox or surgery, she says there are plenty of other ways to keep the wrinkles at bay.
''It's hydration, and there are also so many things that women can do today with technology. LED light therapy, good lasers that tighten the muscles, and massages for your face - and don't forget great creams. I think that's the route to go.''
The We're the Millers actress says people should just embrace ageing naturally.
''I think fashion people need to start incorporating all ages, not just these 20-something perfect people, or not just for anti-ageing [advertisement campaigns]. Represent beauty in all ages,'' says Aniston.
Despite being a loud champion of natural ageing, she does have genetics to thank for her seemingly ageless face.
''My dad is 100 per cent Greek; he turned 81 and he barely has a wrinkle. And neither does my grandmother, who was 95 when she died.''
Aniston's healthy lifestyle is another reason for her fresh-faced looks. Her tips include drinking plenty of water and getting a decent amount of sleep. She also meditates for 20 minutes every day, and has yoga to thank for her toned physique.
In terms of diet, Aniston says it's all about balance.
''I have a Greek salad in front of me, but I also indulge. Oh my god there's a balance,'' she says.
''I usually give myself bread on the weekends, but really, my body doesn't love carbs.''
