Speaking to Yahoo! Beauty this week the Oscar winner shared her thoughts on aging in Hollywood. The 48-year-old beauty also revealed that she’s been advised to go under the knife.
“Somebody is always suggesting it to me, ‘You know if you just a little bit of this and that, lift this up, then this would be a little bit better.’ It’s almost like crack that people are trying to push on you. That’s what it feels like.”
“It is pressure. When you see everybody around you doing it, you have those moments when you think, ‘To stay alive in this business, do I need to do the same thing?”
“I just have kept reminding myself that beauty really is as beauty does, and it is not so much about my physical self,” Berry reflected. “Aging is natural, and that’s going to happen to all of us. I think of those women that I thought aged so beautifully, like Lena Horn. Even how Jane Fonda is aging — I don’t know what she has or hasn’t done, but she looks beautiful as she’s going about her way. I just want to always look like myself, even if that’s an older version of myself. I think when you do too much of that cosmetic stuff, you become somebody else in a way.”
Words to live by, aging is a natural process embrace the better, wiser you. Live, Learn and Love.
