Actor Kate Beckinsale wants to age with grace like her mother, 74-year-old actress Judy Loe. The 47-year-old vow has vowed to never go under the knife to maintain her youthful look and says that she is too afraid that a botched operation would paralyze her face.
“I haven’t had any (cosmetic work)! I’m not against people having it. (But) I do get p**sed off (when it’s assumed I have had work done). It’s sort of a given that I’ve had it, which I just literally haven’t,” she told Britain’s The Sunday Times, reports aceshoebiz.com.
She added, “I’m frightened of paralysing my face. My mum’s voice is in my head, very loud, at all times. My mum wouldn’t even get a facial, she is suspicious of anything like that, and looks f**king radiant and amazing.
“I know if I did do Botox, I’d be the one that would get the droopy eye, and my mum would go, ‘I f**king told you! See? You should never do that.’ “
In 2012, Kate made it clear that she abhorred cosmetic surgery.
“I much prefer how my mother looks to the people I see here (in Los Angeles) with the wind-tunnel face. I feel like beauty is a gift that you have for a while, and you enjoy the hell out of it while you have it. And if you’re lucky enough to have a daughter and you give it to her, you enjoy the fact she has it. My mother was always very, very beautiful – she still is, in her sixties,” she said.
The actor was also accused of having an injection on her face in 2020. However, she fired back at the reports by stating that “I literally don’t get Botox. Please hop off my d**k you will so regret it later in life.”
