Former “Frasier” star says she’s one of the few women in Hollywood aging naturally
We all know that stars, be they male or female, turn to plastic surgery once they believe they need assistance in their never-ending fight against time. Today in Hollywood, most actors have had at least one, more or less intrusive intervention to make them look younger.Jane Leeves, whom fans will surely remember from “Frasier,” swears she’s not one of them.
However, in a recent interview with the Daily Mail, the 52-year-old actress is more than happy to point fingers and name names of stars who have had work done and, more importantly, whose work is visible even to the untrained eye.
For instance, she says Meg Ryan pretty much ruined her career with plastic surgery.
“I don’t blame people for going under the knife. If someone is known as a beauty […], they are under a lot of pressure to keep looking good. But it rarely turns out well. Plastic surgery can age people terribly – it always makes you look older in the end and can ruin careers,” Leeves says.
“Meg Ryan destroyed her career with plastic surgery,” she adds.
The same goes for Melanie Griffith, whose lips are very unnatural-looking and, as such, don’t match her face.
Other interventions she had afterwards made her lose track of what she wanted, to the point where she and other women like her look “as if they’ve all been in a fire at a certain point,” Leeves says.
However, the actress also has actresses she looks up to for the way they’ve chosen to age gracefully.
“I love looking at a naturally ageing woman. Look at Helen Mirren, she looks great, and men find her [attractive]. I think maybe Susan Sarandon had a little something done just recently, I don’t know, but she is ageing nicely,” she says.
“Meryl Streep is ageing beautifully. I can’t imagine Meryl getting Botox. But again, they’re not known for just being a pretty face, they’re known for having substance,” Leeves adds.
In other words, burn again for Meg and Melanie.
