Carey Mulligan, 25: Doctor Told Me I Needed Botox

USMagazine, Thursday, December 9, 2010, 9:27am (PST)
  • Carey Mulligan isn't afraid to admit she has a few flaws, but that doesn't mean she's ready to get a little work done.

    When the Oscar-nominated actress met with a doctor in L.A., the 25-year-old tells Elle UK she was horrified when he suggested giving her a little filler to smooth out some wrinkles.

    "I said, 'I have some lines here under my eye and they're annoying. What can you do?' He looked at my face and said, 'We'll just drop some Botox in here and here," she recalls. "I said, 'What the ----? I'm only 25! Are you joking?'"

    Continued Mulligan: "Isn't that, well, the antithesis of what I'm trying to do as an actress? Only in L.A. would someone try and give you Botox when you're 25 years old."

    But the January cover girl isn't just unhappy with her crow's feet: She can't stand her famously cropped coif either!

    "I hate my hair. After 'An Education,' I had a small part in Michael Mann's film 'Public Enemies,' and he wanted me to dye it white-blonde, and it wrecked my hair," the actress complains. "Literally, ruined it. It was falling apart, fried. So I had to cut it off. I cried."
