Kate Winslet has spoken out against the pressure on women in Hollywood to get surgery to look “better.” Now, she has teamed up with two of her fellow British actresses to form a group that opposes cosmetic surgery.
Racehl Weisz and Emma Thompson have joined her in the “British Anti-Cosmetic Surgery League.” Winslet told The Telegraph, “I will never give in…It goes against my morals, the way that my parents brought me up and what I consider to be natural beauty.” She has also said that she wouldn’t want cosmetic procedures to affect her performances, saying, “I am an actress, I don’t want to freeze the expression of my face.”
Emma Thompson, actress and close friend of Kate Winslet, says “We’re in this awful youth-driven thing now where everybody needs to look 30 at 60.” It’s nice to hear at least a few celebrities supporting the idea that you can feel beautiful without surgery.
According to Fashionetc, Salma Hayek also spoke out against plastic surgery in the September issue of Allure magazine, “I’ve never had anything done on my face—I’ve never had dermabrasion or peels or injections of any kind, nothing…I believe that every woman is entitled to fight to preserve her youth. It’s [plastic surgery] like the uniform of a generation. And it’s not necessarily beautiful. It’s not wrinkled-looking, but it’s not beautiful.”
