The 51-year old star of “Sex and the City” admits that she’s gotten Botox injections but claims that this is the “kind of” the extent of all the cosmetic enhancements she’s had, give or take a few other secret cosmetic surgery treatments. Cattrall is afraid of getting plastic surgery, as she is scared that she would no longer look like herself and be unrecognizable to herself in the mirror.
Speaking to in an interview with The Times, Kim Cattrall says, “Why would anyone lower themselves to look like an alien? I’m scared of surgery because I don’t want to look in the mirror and not recognize who’s looking back. I don’t want to be in a room, and to have people turn when I leave and say, ‘What happened?’ I’m 51 and I think I look my age, but I don’t want to be 20 any more or even 30 or 40.
Speaking about her Botox injections, Cattrall almost hinted that she has dabbled in other cosmetic surgery treatments, but did not specify what they were. If one were to speculate what cosmetic treatments Cattrall may have had, this would likely include a chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing to maintain her youthful skin. It does not appear that Cattrall has had any invasive surgery such as a facelift, neck lift or blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), as the actress is blessed with good genes.
“I’m too terrified to get any proper work so I’ve had just little things done. I have a big crease between my eyebrows and I use Botox to get rid of that, but that’s kind of it.”
Kim Cattrall looks up to actresses such as Helen Mirren, 62, and Judi Dench, 72, because they have grown gracefully.
“I don’t look at magazines for my definition of what is beautiful. Is that a heavily retouched 18-year-old or a 40-year-old on the cover? I don’t think so – nobody looks like that. I look at people such as Helen Mirren or Judi Dench, these amazing women who look great, but look their age.”
Ironically, Mirren and Dench are both rumored to have gotten plastic surgery (read the complete article on Helen Mirren & Judi Dench’s plastic surgery rumors). In particular Helen Mirren is rumored to have gotten a lower facelift, botox injections, and laser skin treatments. Additionally, Judi Dench’s lack of sagging skin around her eyes, no hooding over the eyes, and lack of bags below her eyes suggest the strong possibility that she had a blepharoplasty.
