8 Celebrities Who Refused Plastic Surgery and Showed That We Don't Need to Look Perfect to Be Happy

We live in a time when we are constantly reminded of beauty standards and how important it is to stay young and look young. And society's obsession with looks affects all of us in some way, whether we are famous or not. But some famous women refuse to change their faces no matter how much pressure they get. They even use their fame to talk about age gracefully and be proud of their unique features instead of getting plastic surgery.

Emma Thompson

The actress, who is 63 years old, agrees that women still have to look a certain way. She said, "The terrible demands made on women in the real world and in acting haven't changed at all."

But Thompson herself is against plastic surgery in every way. She said, "I don't understand why you would do that to yourself." The two-time Oscar winner went on to say that trying to change yourself to stop ageing, a natural process, is a form of collective psychosis. "I do think it's an extraordinary thing to do," she said.
Lea Michele

The 36-year-old actress got her start in the business when she was young. And when she was only 13, her managers and agents told her she needed a nose job if she ever wanted to be on TV or a magazine cover.

The star, however, always resisted having rhinoplasty and eventually made it as one of the leading characters of the TV show series Glee. She says that her unique nose helped her get the part of Rachel. "I wanted to look at my face and have it be my face," Michele said. She also said, "Maybe I wouldn't have gotten the job if I looked different."

Kate Winslet

The 47-year-old actress said that plastic surgery goes against the values her parents taught her and what she thinks of as "natural beauty." Winslet says, "I won't ever give up." She also said, "I'm an actress, and I don't want to freeze the way my face looks."

Meryl Streep

The 73-year-old actress said of her peers who had plastic surgery, "When I see it in people I meet, it's like a break in communication with them." She also said it's terrible for an actor because it's like wearing a veil.

Streep also thinks that getting older is a gift that should be embraced. She said, "I just don't get it", when asked how many people in her industry have had plastic surgery. You need to accept that you're getting older."

Kristen Stewart

The 32-year-old actress is adamant that she doesn't want plastic surgery to change anything about her appearance. "No, never," she insists. Never. I get so scared when I think about doing anything.

Stewart said, "That might be very conceited, but I don't want to change anything about myself. She said, "I think women who do that have gone crazy. It's a crime."

Jodie Foster

Since she started her career at a young age, the actress has always been against plastic surgery. And her opinion hasn't changed as she's getting older. Foster said, "It's not my thing", when asked if she ever thinks about doing something about her crow's feet. But she also said, "I don't mind if other people do it."

Foster also said this about her nose: "I'd rather have someone say, 'Wow, that girl has a bad nose,' rather than 'Wow, that girl has a bad nose job.'"

Drew Barrymore

Even though the 47-year-old actress has been famous for a long time, she has always fought the urge to work. She said, "I've never done anything bad to my face." She said, "I don't want to fight against nature."

Barbra Streisand

The 80-year-old star has kept her famous nose and hasn't given in to pressure to change it. She did say, though, that she would have gone under the knife at a young age if she knew it would turn out well. "I didn't trust anyone enough to fix it," Streisand said. If I had a mirror and could do it myself, I would straighten my nose."

But as time passed, the singer started to like her unique nose, and she even says it was a part of her success. She even said that if she ever had her nose fixed, it would end her career.

Streisand has grown to love all of her unique qualities and is proud that she has kept them. She said, "When I moved to Hollywood, I didn't fix my nose, cap my teeth, or change my name. I'm pleased about that."

Do you agree with what these well-known women say about plastic surgery? Do you think we shouldn't change what makes us unique, even if it doesn't fit the current beauty standards?
