It’s not that British supermodel Twiggy is against plastic surgery, she just doesn’t like the look of Botox, according to a new interview with the 60s superstar.
63 year old Twiggy rose to fame as a model back in the 60s and these days she is a model for British brand Marks & Spencer and also designs her own clothes line for a home shopping channel when she is not appearing as a judge on television show America’s Next Top Model. Twiggy is considered responsible for raising interest in women’s fashion back in the 60s and 70s and still remains a mainstay in the industry.
A while back, before turning 60, Twiggy said that while she had yet to go under the knife, she wasn’t against plastic surgery and might even consider it in the future. However, she remains firm in her stance to stay away from Botox injections.
Now that she is over 60, not much has changed. In an interview with Good Housekeeping UK magazine, Twiggy acknowledged the pressures of aging, but says that she still hasn’t had any cosmetic surgery work done.
While Twiggy remains open to the consideration of plastic surgery, she is still adamantly against the use of Botox, saying that those who use the injectable to get rid of wrinkles closely resemble munchkins.
When asked about “never saying never to having work done”, she said: “I haven’t, but that’s not to say I won’t!
“The thing I’m against is the things they pump into your face and lips. People who have had it done can look like munchkins! It’s peculiar. I’m very anti-Botox as I feel it’s dangerous.”
However, Twiggy says she is eager to get back into acting and has noticed that the better roles tend to go to younger women, which is why she continues to eat well and exercise in an effort to stay fit and beautiful.
“That’s why I do lots of other things,” she said. “There’s no doubt that younger actresses have more chances than older ones.
“Older men have great roles and they are always put with 20-something love interests.”
On the subject of how Twiggy manages to maintain her signature slim physique, the former It-girl reveals that she doesn’t diet.
“I don’t think diets work, because you deprive yourself of the things you love.
“I’ve been fascinated recently by the fasting diet, though. My downfall is crisps and bread. If I eat bread every day for a week, I can feel it around my tummy. So if I stop for a week, I can really feel the difference.”
If Twiggy is opposed to Botox and injectable fillers, then perhaps she is considering laser treatments and chemical peels which can subtly reduce the appearance of sun damage and fine lines. Twiggy may also use sunscreen on a regular basis, despite London’s reputation for bad weather, which helps to prevent signs of aging and sun damage. If Twiggy did go under the knife for a facelift or other nip/tuck, then she would have to take time off from her projects for plastic surgery recovery, which may be why she hasn’t yet scheduled an appointment.none
