It appears that Hayek is one of these people, maintaining glowing, youthful looking skin throughout her entire career.
Emma Thompson shared the stern view that she thinks people who get plastic surgery are ‘psychotic’ because ageing is a completely natural part of life and women, in particular, shouldn’t feel that they have to change themselves to fit into a Hollywood shaped box.

Berry’s take is simple: “We have to stop wanting to look like that decade before. We have to stop coveting that. Let it go and embrace it now and really be okay”.
