Cate Blanchet on Being Anti-botox
''[I'm not scared of growing old.] Should I be? What for? Who would want a face that hasn't seen or lived properly, hasn't got any wrinkles that come with age, experience and laughter? Not me, anyway. We're all traveling in the same direction.''
"It's unfortunate that we live in such a panicked, dysmorphic society where women don't even give themselves a chance to see what they'll look like as older persons. I want my kids to know when I'm pissed, when I'm happy and when I'm confounded. Your face tells a story.”
"I feel more powerful every day, more secure in who I am, and I’ve waited so long for that. It feels divine."
"I've seen my grandmothers grow old and they are so beautiful. Every wrinkle in their face tells a story. I want to feel that in 30 years. I would always choose that kind of beauty over the kind that comes from having too much done to yourself."
"I don’t want to be younger. I accept the absolute reality of what is happening to me as the years pass."
“I’m a normal human being. I don’t have any desire to change my body as a result of having had two kids. That's a good thing, isn't it?"
"L.A. is crazy. The women all look the same now. That thing with the cheeks. Like Madonna. Who do they think they're fooling? It doesn't make them look young. You end up looking like a freak."
"Your face needs to have character if you're an actor - otherwise you're just a face.
"Love it or hate it, my face that is, no surgery, no implants, no matter what 'they' say.”
"I am appalled that the term we use to talk about aging is 'anti.' Aging is as natural as a baby's softness and scent. Aging is human evolution in its pure form."
"At a certain point, you can never compete with the girls that are in the Miss USA pageant. You just want to look your healthiest and your best.”
