Drew curious to see herself age
Drew Barrymore has said she won't have cosmetic surgery - because she is curious about how she'll look when she's older.
The 35-year-old actress - who entered the spotlight aged seven in ET - told The Daily Mail she would rather look like a "basset hound" than risk the unknown long-term effects of Botox.
Drew said: "F*** surgery - I'm so curious as to what's going to happen naturally that I can't imagine wanting to alter things just yet."
She added: "And to all those women putting botulism in their faces - we don't know what the long-term effects are, so stop! I'd rather look like a basset hound than do that to my face!"
Drew also revealed that her directorial debut, Whip It - about a teenager with a passion and talent for rollerskating derbys who is pushed into beauty pageants by her mother - reflects her relationship with her own mother.
The actress and filmmaker said: "I understood that dynamic.
"My own mum cared about Hollywood and I didn't. I wanted to act and I loved the creativity of it, but I didn't care for the lifestyle. A lot of the pain in the relationship between the mother and daughter came from my own experiences, and sections of their dialogue are verbatim conversations that took place between me and my mum. Everyone wants consistency in their family life, and that wasn't the case for me. It's why I'm so interested in telling stories about families."
:: Whip It is released in cinemas on April 7.
