Naoimi Watts has revealed why she doesn't get Botox as she opened up about the pressure of ageing in Hollywood.

Speaking to New Beauty magazine, the 47-year-old said it's hard to resist the temptation to conform to the ridiculous beauty ideals Hollywood sets for its female stars.

The Australian actress admitted she has considered trying Botox to maintain a youthful appearance.

"Personally I feel, for me, it's tough to do Botox – but it's also tough not to!

"Sometimes, I think I need the help. Whatever anyone else chooses is fine with me, no judgement."

Naomi explained that she wants to enjoy a versatile acting career with the ability to realistically portray a range of characters, especially ones that are similar to her age.

"Of course, I want to look the best that I can, but I am playing characters that should match my age and the women and the material that I am interested in are usually going through something," she said.

"I have to be able to live in my face and tell the story of the character I've taken on."

However, the mother-of-two admitted that she still hasn't ruled out the option of trying Botox in the future.

"I'll never say never," she said.
