Actor Kate Winslet has declared that she is joining forces with her fellow British actor Emma Thompson and Rachel Weisz to fight against Hollywood’s pressure to undergo cosmetic surgery.
The 35-year-old Titanic star says she has formed what she describes as the “British Anti-Cosmetic Surgery League” with her Oscar-winning friends Thompson and Weisz.
“I will never give in. It goes against my morals, the way that my parents brought me up and what I consider to be natural beauty,” the Telegraph quoted Winslet as saying.
Winslet, who is the daughter of “jobbing actors” from Berkshire, added: “I am an actress, I don’t want to freeze the expression of my face.”
Her comments echo those by Thompson, 51, who said, “I’m not fiddling about with myself. We’re in this awful youth-driven thing now where everybody needs to look 30 at 60.”
Weisz, 41, for her part, has said her natural beauty is an asset.
“People who look too perfect don’t look sexy or particularly beautiful,” said the Oscar-winning star of The Constant Gardener, who married Daniel Craig this year.
