Emilia Clarke is recalling the Hollywood pressure she once, well, faced when it came to her looks.
In a chat with Elle UK, the "Game of Thrones" star remembered being 28 years old when a facialist once told her she "needed fillers." Emilia didn't take the unsolicited advice well.
"I showed her the door," she said. "I was literally just like, 'get out.' Her exact words were, 'Then, you can have your face back.' At that point I was 28."
The 34-year-old did acknowledge that she feels pressure to get cosmetic procedures, particularly given her job.
"You hear about all your contemporaries getting it done and you're like, 'Does that mean I have to? Should I be doing that?' And then you work on a movie and the director of photography lights you beautifully and you get over it," she said. "I work in an industry where I've got to move my face, and I've got to be expressive, and you can't light filler. You just can't light it. It doesn't look right, you look shiny and strange."
Having said that, the actress won't totally rule out Botox
"I've never had it because I'm petrified, and I definitely don't want it now, but I'm not saying I won't want it later," she said. "I'm allowing myself room to change my mind. But, I don't like the fact that it's suddenly become normal that everybody just gets work done."
Still, Emilia said she will likely quit acting if the job begins requiring cosmetic work other than Botox
For now, the British star said she'll stick to beauty regimens that are more traditional.
"The most ridiculous skincare tip I've got? I mean Goop … I love her, love me a bit of Gwynnie [Paltrow], but I think there is a limit to certain things where you're like 'now it's just getting a bit silly,'" Emilia added.
