Critics have crossed the line by accusing actress Kate Beckinsale of using Botox injections. Well, she’s had enough of the criticism.
“I haven’t had any,” Beckinsale, 47, said in a Fox News article. “I’m not against people having it. [But] I do get pissed off. It’s sort of a given that I’ve had it, which I just literally haven’t.”
Kate Beckinsale, who is from Great Britain, said she has a valid reason for not doing anything like Botox at all.
“I’m frightened of paralyzing my face,” Kate Beckinsale said. “My mum’s voice is in my head, very loud, at all times. My mum wouldn’t even get a facial, she is suspicious of anything like that, and looks f—–g radiant and amazing. I know if I did do Botox, I’d be the one that would get the droopy eye, and my mum would go, ‘I f—–g told you! See? You should never do that.'”
Kate Beckinsale Won’t Do Botox But Admits To Enjoying ‘Vampire Facial’
She’s probably best remembered for appearing in the “Underworld” series of films as Selene. But Beckinsale also has appeared in action films like “Van Helsing,” “Whiteout,” and “Total Recall.”
But the actress hasn’t completely dismissed all procedures. While she won’t do Botox, Kate Beckinsale does enjoy the “Vampire Facial,” where blood plasma is re-injected into the face, creating a tightened, luminous effect.
“That’s a real thing, from your own body,” Beckinsale said. “But not with scary poisonous things!”
Besides, she’s been there, done that around Hollywood trying to keep her younger.
“People started trying to worry me about turning 40 when I was turning 33,” the actress said. “If you overload it like that, you’re going to make the person not give a s—t.”
Actress Has Said That She Uses Sunscreen To Protect Her Skin
If you find yourself around Kate Beckinsale, then it might be a good idea to simply not talk about Botox or procedures like it. As you can tell from her comments, she definitely has an opinion about it and those people who think she’s done it before.
Now Beckinsale does believe in using sunscreen. She remembers earlier in her career when getting a tan was a big deal. That’s not the case these days for the actress.
“It was fashionable to be tan when I was growing up,” she told “TODAY” in 2017. “And yet, I was lucky. I would get freckles in the shape of a military mustache. So I was obsessed with sunscreen. I didn’t get sun damage. Now I use La Roche-Posay. It doesn’t make me break out.”
Beckinsale has considered the British Heart Association as her main philanthropic place since 6 years old. That’s when her father, born with a congenital heart defect, died of a massive heart attack.
