On caring about her looks:
I’m constantly pushed out by younger talent, like Alicia Vikander. You might think, Wait, she’s 27 and a gorgeous movie star, and you’re 44 and a low-tier, TV-mom-type; you’re not in the same ballpark. But she is squeezing me out. She’s in the hot center and I’m on the remote perimeter. It’s painfully obvious, but I’m still ashamed to admit this: I care about my looks. How else can I explain my trainer, stylist, and Barney’s card? I’ve bleached my teeth, dyed my hair, peeled and lasered my face, and tried a slew of age-defying creams. More than once, I’ve asked the director of photography on a show to soften my laugh lines. Nothing about this suggests I’m aging gracefully.” But for Amanda, 44, adding Botox and fillers is a scary prospect.
On Botox and fillers:
I want to look younger (and better), trust me. The only reason I don’t do it is because I’m scared. Botox or no Botox, we shouldn’t feel bitter, because we’re ALL going to look like s**t. Every last one of us. Even Alicia Vikander.
