Jacqueline Bisset was so stunned by her Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series for Dancing on the Edge that she became nearly incoherent. Luckily, Jacqueline managed to pull her thoughts together enough to give her opinion on plastic surgery on a segment on The Today show.
With over 40 years in the industry, Jacqueline Bisset has picked up a lot of tips on how to look good in Hollywood. But even though the 69-year old doesn’t look like she did when she first attracted public notice in the 60s, doesn’t mean she is heading under the knife to find her lost youth.
In an interview on The Today show, Jacqueline confessed that she didn’t appreciate her looks when she was in her 20s and 30s and admitted that like many women she was insecure. However, as she grew older she also didn’t opt to have plastic surgery.
“I don’t think it makes you look younger,” she said. “I think it makes you different.
“You’ve got to get used to yourself, you have to face yourself,” Bisset said. “On a deep, deep level you have to face yourself and say that people love ME, the inside of me … it took me my life (to get there).”
Before her Golden Globe win this year, when she was filming the project, Jacqueline laughed off rumors that she had retained her beauty over the years with some type of rejuvenating plastic surgery. She told The Lady blog that she has started taking better care of herself as she has grown older and doesn’t care much for the results she has seen from plastic surgery.
“Look, I promise, none. It’s all mental. It all comes from inside. I’m not into plastic surgery because I haven’t seen it being particularly successful on people. They end up looking slightly different. I don’t want that. I believe in developing yourself, letting your life be your map.”
Still, that doesn’t mean that Jacqueline is entirely happy or accepting of the wrinkles that have crept up across her face over the years.
She goes on to say, “Not that I like what’s happening in my face. I can see all sorts of changes and it’s not easy to be photographed. It’s a bloody struggle, I’m telling you, trying to be what people want you to be. I like the way my face represents me. And I can tell my mental state by the bags under my eyes.”
During Jacqueline’s rambling speech that was interrupted by the ceremony’s music because she went on for so long, Jacqueline said that, “forgiveness is the best beauty treatment.”
“It’s what’s inside and being able to let go and realizing that life is kind of like a wave,” she said. “You have your highs and your lows. If you can live in the present moment and be open to it I think you can have a really rich life.”
However, a little plastic surgery can go a long way in getting rid of under eye bags and still have natural-looking results.none
