Gwyneth Paltrow takes on Joan Rivers over Botox use
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow is not a fan of Botox and has even gone so far as to claim that the procedure made her look like ‘a crazy Joan Rivers’ after she had it done several years ago. The mother-of-two spoke about her beauty regime and did not rule out the possibility of facial surgery in the future, saying ‘I would be scared to go under the knife, but talk to me when I’m 50. I’ll try anything.’
However, the 40-year-old went on to say that she was not happy with the results of her Botox treatment and would not be trying it again anytime soon, commenting that she ‘looked crazy’ and comparing herself to American comedienne Joan Rivers – who is well known for her love of plastic surgery and facial treatments.
As well as anti-wrinkle injections, Gwyneth also underwent Thermage laser treatment, which she described as feeling ‘like someone’s smacking your face with a rubber band that has an electric shock in it.’ She added that she would try it again because it took years off her appearance and made her feel more confident in herself.
Although she is known for her healthy lifestyle, Gwyneth admitted that her vice is smoking, which she does once a week. She explained that ‘It’s what makes life interesting, finding the balance between cigarettes and tofu. My one light American Spirit that I smoke once a week, on Saturday night.’
