Has Emily Mortimer had Plastic Surgery?
The British beauty refuses to have plastic surgery. That’s according to 42-year-old Emily Mortimer herself, who says despite wanting to look younger, she would never have plastic surgery. In an interview with The Guardian a few years before, the Match Point actress said: “I would love to suddenly look 15 years younger – I don’t know who wouldn’t – but it f**ks with your head a little bit. I couldn’t carry it off mentally.”
She also revealed that she doesn’t think people who undergo cosmetic surgery look better as they often look worse. She then said: “Also, you can tell. I think they look worse with surgery. Everyone looks the same and you have your insecurity about ageing written on your face. Of course, we’re all insecure about ageing, but if you can pretend not to care, it’s quite sexy.” She surely is confident about herself as around that time she also suggested she doesn’t mind going nude for her film roles.
