60 year-old actress Sigourney Weaver recently opened up about body image – source Daily Mail:
‘I yearned to be the pretty one,’ she says, remembering herself as the child, who was bullied at school for being what she describes as ‘a too-tall beanpole’.
When she asked her mother if she thought she was pretty, she replied. ‘No dear, you’re just plain.’
‘That was… well, hard,’ recalls Sigourney. ‘I thought, “Gee, if your mum doesn’t even think you’re pretty…”
On Botox and plastic surgery:
Up close, her face is unashamedly etched with fine lines; there are no tell-tale signs of Botox or plastic surgery. ‘I find that look scary,’ she says, ‘And I like getting older. There’s nothing more inspiring to me than a woman in her 70s who’s full of life and and still useful. I never notice age in people’s faces. I just look at the whole person.’
