Why Cate Blanchett Will Never Get Plastic Surgery
Unlike some of her peers, Cate Blanchett is looking forward to aging naturally.
The Academy Award winner, 42, says she'll never go under the knife to turn back the hands of time. "There's been a decade or so of people doing intervention with their face and their body," she tells Fashionista. "Now that we're emerging from that, people are seeing that long term it's not so great."
Blanchett doesn't judge women who decide to get plastic surgery, "but I know what works for me," she explains.
"I'd just be too frightened about what it means long term. In the end if you have all that stuff done. . . you just see the work," Blanchett says. "It doesn't fill me with admiration -- it fills me with pity."
The Australian actress isn't the first A-list beauty to speak out against plastic surgery in Hollywood: Kate Winslet, Rachel Weisz and Emma Thompson have all vowed to embrace their natural beauty.
Blanchett does, however, use natural means to maintain her youthful appearance.
"I do the old glass of lemon juice in water in the morning. It just keeps your system going. I think it's like people who get into colonic therapy -- there's a logic behind it. The French have been doing it, the Egyptians did it. There are certain things in ancient practices that [I won't do] -- I'm not going to bathe in my own urine."
