London, Nov 13 (IANS) Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway says she won’t have Botox done because she doesn’t want to ‘erase’ who she is.
‘I had someone offer me Botox at 23. From the age of 25 to 27 – and this is a little embarrassing to admit – I looked under my eyes every single day, because I thought, ‘It’s going, it’s going, it’s going!’ And then I realised the other day they are not wrinkles; they’re smile lines,’ Anne said.
‘If you look at pictures of me from a young age, I’ve been smiling the same way since I was little. And I had that wonderful moment when you realise, ‘That’s who I am’. Botox would erase that,’ contactmusic.com quoted her as saying.
The 28-year-old actress, who shot to fame with ‘The Princess Diaries’, insists she has stopped defining herself by her looks and is comfortable in her own skin.
‘My identity used to be shaped on my appearance so much. I don’t think I was shallow – I just think I was young. I focus on other things a lot more now.
