Happy Friday Everyone! So, the talented and gorgeous actress, Rachel Weisz, can be seen in the August installment of UK's Harper's Bazaar. The photos are of course beautiful as well as the clothing they chose for the shoot. She looks like one smokin' hot mama! The article accompanying the pictorial is another story. Whether she meant to or not....it is hilarious!!! Ms. Weisz made sure to put on her fightin' jeans for this interview! There are many things discussed....how she loves England and English woman for their "down to earth and non fussy outward appearance".....and then the whammy....Botox and Acting! I thought this quote was PRICELESS....."It should be banned for actors, as steroids are for sportsmen," Weisz says of Botox. "Acting is all about expression; why would you want to iron out a frown?". Although I do agree with her to a point, in my opinion she stepped out on a thin limb with this gem..."Rachel Weisz thinks that Nicole Kidman is to acting what Barry Bonds is to baseball." Now whether you agree with her statements or not, I think it takes major GUTS to say something like that! I know there have been times when even I have seen some way OVER botoxed women in Hollywood....sometimes I even think it is becoming the norm versus the exception.
I know even on this site we have showed MANY examples of really bad botox jobs. When I came across this article I had a brief discussion with Dr. Walden about botox. She said that it is important for people to know that when botox is injected by a skilled and certified physician that it can be administered in a very conservative manner and have wonderful results! The idea is to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and give the skin a refreshed more smooth appearance, not to look like you are "frozen" or "surprised" all the time. When done properly the patient should have full range of "motion" in their face.....smiling, frowning, happy, sad, and yes even surprised when the emotion calls for it!
So, Ms. Weisz, I am going to have to disagree with you on this one....Botox can be a girls best friend and a great tool in her secret bag of beauty tricks!!!
