Mad Men actress January Jones has revealed that she’s afraid of plastic surgery, but not for the reasons you might think. While many actresses have admitted to being afraid of the results of cosmetic surgery, January says that she isn’t against going under the knife, but she does fear anesthesia.
36-year old January Jones is best known for her role as Betty Draper on the popular television series Mad Men, but has also made notable appearances in films like American Wedding and X-Men: First Class. Whether she is starring or supporting a role, January tends to take on different looks, from prim and proper to sexy and daring. One thing she doesn’t dare do? Plastic surgery.
When it comes to plastic surgery, January says that she is all for it, if it helps someone feel better. She told online magazine Violet Grey: ”Whatever helps a person feel beautiful and confident is fine with me.”
However, that doesn’t mean that January plans to have anything drastic done any time soon herself.
She explains, ”I personally am afraid of the procedures that involve anesthetic but ask me again in twenty years.”
In the meantime, while January waits for her fears about going under the knife to subside in the next couple of decades, she has picked up some beauty tricks from dear old mom to combat aging, including maintaining a naturally full brow line and never over plucking.
”She [my mother] always told me that if I kept making so many weird and ugly faces my face would eventually freeze that way. Luckily I found a job where funny and/or frozen faces are encouraged.
”Also, to not over pluck your eyebrows, a strong brow makes you look younger.”
As January has shared that she is only afraid of the plastic surgery procedures that involve anesthesia, she may soon turn to non-invasive procedures, if she hasn’t already.
Botox is an injectable which helps to reduce the appearance of lines and is especially popular for the crevices that creep across foreheads as well as for treatment in the deep 11 marks that can appear between the brow. There are also a number of facial fillers, such as Sculptra, Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse and others that can help to restore lost volume to the face, especially the cheeks and lips but are also commonly used on the parentheses found around the mouth as well.
January may not use Botox or fillers, but she probably does go for regular chemical peels or laser treatments to help reduce the appearance of fine lines or age spots that can result from sun exposure and exposure to the elements.
The Mad Men actress isn’t the first entertainer to openly admit to having a fear of plastic surgery, although she is the first to say that it is because of anesthesia. Many actresses, including Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts have said that they disapprove of plastic surgery because of the results and fear that it would hamper their ability to show emotion, which is part of the craft.none
