“I really used to be bad with products, but now I exfoliate every night and use a lot of organic oils on my face,” she confides. (She’s a Sonya Dakar fan.) “And I have a great dermatologist in L.A. who gave me this amazing laser the last time I was there. It’s called Thermage. It’s not invasive. I went out to dinner right afterward and I didn’t look crazy, but it’s quite painful. It feels like someone’s smacking your face with a rubber band that has an electric shock in it. But I would do it again, because I feel like it took five years off my face.”
On Botox & plastic surgery:
“I’ve probably tried everything. I would be scared to go under the knife, but you know, talk to me when I’m 50. I’ll try anything. Except I won’t do Botox again, because I looked crazy. I looked like Joan Rivers!”
“I don’t hold on to fear as much as I used to, because I’ve learned a lot about genuinely not caring what strangers think about me,” she says. “It’s very liberating. It’s very empowering, and I’ve learned a lot of that from Jay—Shawn Carter—Z, because his approach to life is very internal. It’s a very good lesson to learn.”
‘Never say never – and I certainly don’t judge anyone who does it. But most of the characters I play are going through some kind of emotional turmoil, so my job requires me to have expression. If my face was froze, what right do I have to play that part? All the women who haven’t done anything to their faces are still able to play great roles. And some of the ones who have done something have messed it up- they look freakish. Anyway, for me it’s about playing women with rich lives – and the longer the life, the deeper the wrinkles.’
On keeping her slim figure:
‘I do Pilates, dance-cardio and yoga to keep in good form. I also play tennis because I love the sport. The competitive side to it makes it much more fun than just doing workouts.’
She may have sparked speculation over her never ending youthful looks. While sometimes her more ‘frozen’ features have caused rumours she could be undergoing cosmetic procedures. But now Nicole Kidman has spoken out to insist she is currently completely natural – although she has tried Botox before and disliked the outcome.
The 42-year-old actress – who is married to fellow Australian Keith Urban – has tried the wrinkle-smoothing injections but she now plans to avoid them in the future as she likes having control over her facial expressions.
She told Italian newspaper La Repubblica: ‘No surgery for me; I did try Botox, unfortunately, but I got out of it and now I can finally move my face again.’
Although she experimented with Botox, Nicole sticks to a healthy eating plan and rigorous exercise regime to stay looking good.
She said: ‘I am completely natural. I wear sunscreen, I don’t smoke and I take care of myself, and I am proud to say that. Anybody can do anything to themselves – I don’t judge – but personally I believe in being physically fit. That’s how I was raised. I can’t go in the sun because I’m fair-skinned. It was a nightmare when I was younger but it has its benefits now.’

I grew up in this typical New Jersey town where everyone looked the same. If you didn’t have a nose job, you were about to. Agents and casting directors told me to get one, but my mother said, â€œBarbra Streisand never did – and neither are you.â€
When I met [Glee creator] Ryan Murphy, he asked if I’d ever seen Funny Girl. I said no. When I did see it, I cried my eyes out. Her character felt and looked so much like me! From then, I’ve been obsessed with Barbra. Her voice is perfect. She doesn’t need any tricks. What makes her a rare talent is she can just stand there and sing.
… says Lea in a recent interview for People Magazine.
Lea loves talking about her… nose. She did so here and here!
‘Half of my lip was removed with the cyst, and I was advised to get filler in my top lip to help balance it out. I should have said no to the filler in the first place but I trusted the doctor. I’m so sick of people saying that just because of my lips, I’ve has surgery everywhere.’

Sophie also mentioned that she should take better care of her body:
‘The stress of this business tends to come out through my body. Either I eat too much or I eat nothing. I need to be more responsible for my body.’
