Everybody’s favorite vegetarian actress, Natalie Portman recently admitted that she is open to having plastic surgery when she is older.
The 28-year-old smarty-pants recently posed for W Magazine, revealing more than just her stunning good looks.
When asked about how she will face aging in the future, Natalie acknowledged that women in Hollywood over 40 have trouble. However, she seemed uncertain about how she will fight aging, when she herself begins to show symptoms.
In response to having plastic surgery, the Star Wars alum responded, “I would hope not.”
But she also didn’t have anything negative to say, nor did she entirely rule out future procedures, comparing fixing future wrinkles to getting rid of a pimple. She admits, “If I have a pimple I want to get rid of it.”
It could be that Natalie shows no fear of the surgical blade, because she has already experienced it.
Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr Jennifer Walden says, “Natalie Portman went on record recently and said that she hoped she would never have to go under the knife, but in the same breath would not rule it out either. Ms. Portman always looks youthful and fresh faced. It is possible the actress might have undergone rhinoplasty in the past as the bridge of her nose looks narrowed and extremely straight.”
While there is no telling how one will age, Make Me Heal’s panel of experts ventured some guesses and advice for Natalie.
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, Calif., says, “Natalie Portman looks great, and it is difficult to predict what procedures one may benefit from in the future as everyone ages differently and has different comfort levels in their own skin. Down the road she may want to use Botox to smooth out natural lines, but that is about it, as her facial features are very natural and appealing.”
Plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Ellenbogen explains the schedule of plastic surgery for Hollywood, saying, “Smart girl Natalie Portman realizes as she ages she won’t play space princesses anymore, and if she develops sags and bags she’ll be more ready for her close-up with some subtle work.”
“As women age, the schedule goes like this: 25– fillers for the folds and lips, 34–lower eyes and perhaps lipo of the neck, 40–upper eyes and fat grafting , 45–mini lift or facelift and forehead lift, with some more fat grafting. Then there is the body and boobs to keep up and a lot of peels and skin care and fillers along the way.”
Natalie Portman certainly seems to have established herself amongst the Hollywood set, and Make Me Heal looks forward to seeing what she does next and how well she ages, whether or not she ultimately decides to go under the knife.
