The stunning mother of two opens on how she is resisting the pressure to go under the knife.
Award winning actress, Halle Berry, who has been a Revlon brand ambassador for almost 20 years, has managed to look beautiful and radiant year after year thereby making her a beauty role model for young women.
The former fashion model recently spoke to Bobbi Brown of Yahoo! Beauty about plastic surgery in Hollywood.
"It is pressure," she confessed of plastic surgery. "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?'"
The 48 year old goes on to admit that she has personally been told to get work done, "i won’t lie and tell you that those things don’t cross my mind," she continued, "because somebody is always suggesting it to me, 'you know if you just did 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 I feel like."
On resisting, the beautiful mother of two has this to say, "i just have kept reminding myself that beauty really is as beauty does, and it is not so much about my physical self, 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."
She acknowledged, however, that accepting one's age is no easy feat;"we have to stop wanting to look like that decade before," Berry told Yahoo! "we have to stop coveting that, let it go and embrace it now and really be okay, it’s easy to say, i guess, but that’s the goal."
Ladies, what do you think?
