Looking at Rebecca Gibney today you would never guess she looked anything like Wednesday Adams as a kid (her words not mine).
“I had dark hair with a heavy fringe and a doll with no head, I was a Wednesday Addams lookalike!” Gibney told Mamamia exclusively.
“I was a lot younger than my brothers and sisters and consequently spent quite a bit of time on my own.
“I would talk to my headless doll and carry her everywhere. I don’t even remember if she ever had a head. I think I found her like that but I loved her just the same. I know, sad but true.”
Gibney is just as warm, optimistic and self-deprecating as
Julie Rafter you would expect. The actress took some time out to chat with Mamamia about her beauty secrets, botox, her difficult childhood and what she misses most about Packed to the Rafters.
When asked to spill her beauty secrets she reveals the best advice she’s ever been given is: Don’t smoke, drink plenty of water, smile and to get plenty of beauty sleep.
“I try to take care of myself with a fairly healthy diet (although I still like a glass of wine and dark chocolate). Moderation is the key. Moderate exercise as well – I’m no gym junkie,” the 48-year-old says.
As for her product specific beauty routine (because that’s what I know you’re dying to find out) keep in mind Gibney is a ambassador for Olay Regenerist – has been for two years but also admits to having used their products for over thirty years.
