- Kate Beckinsale responded to the plastic surgery rumors in a new interview
- The Hollywood actress maintained that she has not gotten any cosmetic work done
- She revealed that her mom has discouraged her from going under the knife
Kate Beckinsale is so tired of hearing about the rumors claiming that she’s had some work done to maintain her appearance.
In a recent nterview with the Sunday Times, the 47-year-old Hollywood actress set the record straight regarding the assumptions that she’s had plastic surgery.
“I haven’t had any [work done]. I’m not against people having it. [But] I do get pissed off. It’s sort of a given that I’ve had it, which I just literally haven’t,” Beckinsale told the outlet.
According to the “Underworld” star, her decision to not go under the knife was influenced by her mother, who is very suspicious of cosmetic surgery that she “wouldn’t even get a facial.”
Apart from hearing the voice of her mom in her head whenever she came across the idea of surgical enhancements, Beckinsale said that she had never actually considered doing even the simpler procedures, like injections.
“I know if I did do Botox, I’d be the one that would get the droopy eye and my mum would go, ‘I f—king told you! See? You should never do that,’” she explained.
Despite having a firm stand on the issue, Beckinsale admitted that stars like her and women in general really have a hard time dealing with aging in the public eye, as per Page Six.
“I think, when you start out, people perceive you as attractive it’s helpful at first. If people start thinking that’s your main thing, I don’t think that’s helpful to anyone, least of all you,” Beckinsale said.
“I think women are damned anyway,” she continued. “You’re seen as too young, you’re too old. Where is the f—king sweet spot for women? At some point you just have to go, b——h — this is me.”
It was not the first time that Beckinsale addressed rumors concerning her physical appearance. In April of last year, the “Click” actress clapped back at online trolls who asked her to stop getting Botox after she shared a makeup-free selfie on Instagram.
“I literally don’t get Botox. Please hop off my d–k you will so regret it later in life,” she was quoted as responding to the critics by Us Weekly at the time.
