Julia Roberts: "I've risked my career by not having a facelift."


We’ve seen a lot of celebrities get a little fish-lipped and face-lifted in Hollywood, but not Julia Roberts.

And she reckons that’s been a big risk to her career.

Following a week that’s been full of pictures of Renee Zellweger’s youthful face, 46-year-old Julia spoke to You magazine and promoted her role as brand ambassador for Lancôme .

“By Hollywood standards, I guess I’ve already taken a big risk in not having had a facelift, but I’ve told Lancome that I want to be an ageing model – so they have to keep me for at least five more years until I’m over 50.”

Julia turns 47 on Tuesday, and says that looking ‘Hollywood’ is low on her list of priorities.

“Mornings are a high-humour scene. You just have to make sure everyone looks and smells clean. That’s all that matters. If I actually manage to get my teeth brushed and lip balm on, I’m good.”

Her twins Hazel and Phinnaeus are now seven, and she and husband Danny Moder spend as much family time as possible on their ranch in New Mexico.

She does admit to being privileged in the Mummy stakes:

“I often think about the reality of my life versus a mother who, say, lives in Kansas City and is struggling to pick up the kids when she gets off work, or who doesn’t get to choose not to go to work because she wants to stay at home with the kids. Those mothers are my real-life heroes, and they include my girlfriends, who do this with joy and grace and with full-time jobs. I don’t have to worry about it and I’m grateful for that.”

Well said, Julia.
