Both Meryl Streep and Heidi Klum have recently gone on record as being anti-plastic surgery. According to thecelebritycafe.com:
“You’d be amazed how many men in the industry have gone down that road,” Meryl Streep observed. “I don’t get it.” Streep revealed that true actors should realize that often more interesting roles come to the older set anyway. “The good thing about getting older is that when they do cast you it’s often something interesting – you’re no longer asked to be the beautiful leading lady,” she said. When actors aren’t hired just for their matinee looks they are given the chance to play roles that “examine all the idiosyncrasies people have.” Streep remained refreshingly free of believing in unattainable standards of youth and beauty. “I think you have to embrace getting older and celebrate life,” she advised.
According to tob.hollywood.com, Heidi Klum stated:
There’s something odd when you’re 35 or 40 and ironed to the max. You change with time, and it’s fine. Everywhere there are these stand-up cards saying, ‘Have a little silicone while you get your roots done.’ I want to be the opposite of that.
It’s easy for them to say that. One is arguably one of the greatest actresses of all time, and the other is a supermodel. I say, to each their own!
