For years Botox was Hollywood's dirty little secret, except it's really no secret. These days you aren't somebody unless you've injected yourself with a little Botulism. For the most part you can't tell who the culprits are, with maybe the exception of Joan Rivers whom I like to think makes the Terminator look human.
But now apparently the Botox trend is over. It seems movie-makers want to save the â€œwrinklesâ€ for the plot.
The September issue of Chatelaine Magazine states â€œAccording to The Wall Street Journal, a backlash is brewing in Hollywood against the plastic-surgery trend. So many faces are Restylane-paralyzed and collagen-puffed, casting directors are reportedly having a tough time finding actors who look their age, let alone sitcom stars whose faces aren't too frozen to frown, make funny faces or register surprise. As a result, the new buzzword in Tinseltown is authenticity.â€
So let me get this straight: Melanie Griffith's fish lips and Nicole Kidman whose face is so plastic it could be made of Tupperware is no longer cool?
The article also states â€œThe 'Botox crisis,' as it's been dubbed, is particularly dire in TV, where frequent close-ups put faces under the microscope, and high-definition programming and flat screens magnify scars and pulled skin. Finding a face that hasn't been sliced, diced or cryogenically preserved is reportedly so difficult, some networks are ramping up their casting calls in England and Canada, where more actors still own the faces they were born with."
So put away your syringes and let the natural sag through.
Bye Bye Botox
