Everyone holds a desire to look appealing, whatever their age. However, in the age of high-definition television and smartphones, people involved in the entertainment industry have pressure to look good from every aspect and each second of their television appearance.
After extensive use of beauty products and age, the face skin gets damaged in the process, and from the lens of the camera, wrinkles and pores are most visible. As a result, people resort to plastic surgery to enhance their physical appearance.
However, Drew Barrymore is far from the camp of plastic surgery and has vowed never to enter one saying she would never confide to operation to look beautiful. But what led her to say no to plastic surgery, and which approach will she embrace to look as beautiful in the future as she looks in her 40s? All details on the article.
Drew Barrymore: Addictive Personality Stood In The Way Of Plastic Surgery
In January of 2019, Barrymore appeared in an interview with Glamour Magazine, where she revealed that she has an "extremely addictive personality." If she likes something, she gets hooked on it for a long time and has a hard time breaking the addiction.
Perhaps, this is why she can't forget pizza, even in her dreams!
Despite enduring a notoriously troubled childhood with an endless partying in the wake of her stardom, Golden Globe recipient never did heroin. The reason behind it is the same as that for plastic surgery. In the interview, she added,
"I don't want to get plastic surgery and do heroin because I feel like they are both very slippery slopes. I feel if I try either, I am going to be dead really soon."
According to The Independent, young children spend their leisure time playing cosmetic surgery games and are most likely to feel dissatisfaction with regards to their bodies.
In such a situation, Barrymore candidness is genuinely heroic and inspiring to millions that look up to her.
The godmother of Frances Bean Cobain fears that after one surgery, she would go for another, and the process will continue until the end. She recalled her past struggle with drug addiction. Referring to herself as a 'party girl' at a young age, she was checked into a mental institution at just 13 years old because of the constant drug use and partying.
Nevertheless, the actress has left such a lifestyle far behind and is a doting mother to her two daughters, Olive and Frankie, with third husband, Will Kopelman. Drew and Will separated in 2016, after four years of togetherness.
Aging Is A Privilege To Drew Barrymore
Santa Clarita Diet actress has had her fair share of struggle filled life in the decade-spanning career.
However, when it comes to enjoying the motherhood in the 40s, she wants to do it without running after beauty standards.
The Charlie's Angels actress admitted that she lives by the rule where she has no desire to mess her face by 'chasing unnatural beauty.'
Barrymore definitely wants to age gracefully and fill the aging process with humor and self-love.
Even though such views came to her before motherhood, the birth of two daughters has made her more committed to the plan. She hopes to pass on this approach to her daughters too.
Moreover, she hopes her girls would grow up with the "empowerment to know that female is worthy without wanting to take down the male race."
Said No To Juvederm
Barrymore dermatologist asked her to inject Juvederm, an injectable dermal filler used to treat facial wrinkles and folds.
While the dermatologist tempted her with advice that the filler would raise her skin and reduce the dark circles under her eyes, she replied, "No, but I am going to go home and start highlighting under my eyes, so thank you for the tip!"
The BAFTA nominee received praise from Gwyneth Paltrow, saying Drew "fills her with joy and inspiration" on Barrymore's 44th birthday.
Her Approach To Aging Naturally
While she doesn't have a proclivity for cosmetic surgery, she admits that she may use non-invasive laser treatment.
Further, she added that the only treatment she will follow is the one that "just schluffs the barnacles of brown and sun damage off your face."
The greatest thing about such treatment, for her, is 'there is no downtime,' but it always makes her feel so much more attractive.
