Megan Gale shares the one thing that could make her quit her job.

And to be honest, it’s not what we were expecting.

Megan Gale has been famous for 22 years. In that time, she’s walked more runways than I’ve walked steps. She’s acted, most recently in supposed-but-not-really feminist masterpiece Mad Max, she’s hosted a TV show and become one of the most recognisable faces in Australia.

But the 39-year-old is very mindful of the fact that she doesn’t look like she did when she was a 20-year-old model at Melbourne Fashion Week.

Gale sat down with Australian Women’s Weekly to discuss turning 40, being a mother and what she really thinks of plastic surgery.

“I’m clearly mindful of the fact that I don’t look the same way that I did when I was 20,” she told the magazine.

“If the time ever came that I wasn’t getting work or I didn’t have value anymore because I was ageing then I wouldn’t go ‘OK well, I need to get to fix it and get procedures done’; I would leave the industry.”

Gale also said she follows after her mother when it comes to cosmetic procedures, who is about to turn 72 and is reluctant to “start messing around with what we were born with”.

Gale says as a 39-year-old woman, she respects herself and her body a lot more than she did when she was in her 20s.

“I’ve quite enjoyed maturing and growing into my old skin,” she said.

“I feel more confident within myself now than I did when I was 20. I feel like I’m a lot fitter, I feel like I respect my body more, I feel like I understand it more, I know what works for me and what doesn’t in terms of exercise and my diet. It’s not something I spend a lot of time worrying about.”

Gale has spoken about plastic surgery before, after a ‘surgery name and shame’ list was published by a plastic surgeon two years ago, which named her as a frequent user of botox.

At the time, Gale tweeted that the claims were offensive and damaging to her brand.

“I cannot tell you enough how offensive I find your claims and so called “suspicions” to be,” she tweeted to Dr Maz, a celebrity plastic surgeon.

“I have NEVER indulged in any kind of injectable or plastic surgery. I’m 100% natural and as a beauty brand ambassador for me, it’s essential that I remain so.”
