Botox or fillers? No thanks

I went through a phase about a year-and-a-half ago where I found myself googling 
information on things such as fillers and Botox, but I've stopped that lately. The only thing I'm doing is bleaching my teeth.

When it comes to cosmetic surgery, it is a case of never say never - but you do have to be very careful. When it's done well, it's great, but if I lost the expression on my face, I'd be no good to anyone.

Age is a great thing, and as you get the older you don't 
worry as much about how you look. I don't mind looking a good 43 but you don't want to look older than you are.


I think Irish faces hold a lot of stress and strain and Irish women in particular can end up getting that pinched look.

I was talking to this friend of mine a few weeks ago about it and she said: "If you got something done, you wouldn't be able to stop yourself from telling people". And that's true - I'd never be able to keep it a secret.

It's crazy the amount of actors now who don't get any more work because they've had work done and they lose their expressions.

Men are lucky in that it doesn't matter what they look like, but women will always be judged on their appearance as they get older.
