Kristin Scott Thomas was born on 24 May 1960 in Redruth, Cornwall, England. She started her acting career in 1984 but it was in the ’90s that she flourished as an actress. Her breakthrough role was as Fiona in the British film Four Weddings and a Funeral. Two years later, she was acclaimed for her starring performance in The English Patient. For this, she was nominated for an Academy Award, BAFTA, and Golden Globe for Best Actress. That same period, she also starred in the movie Mission: Impossible.
In the 2000s, she had notable roles in the movies Gosford Park, Keeping Mum, The Golden Compass, and I’ve Loved You So Long. She later portrayed Elizabeth Boleyn in the movie The Other Boleyn Girl. Her next role was in the romantic comedy film Confessions of a Shopaholic. Her portrayal of Mimi Smith in Nowhere Boy also gained her acclaim. In the 2010s, she starred in the movies Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, The Invisible Woman, Suite française, and Darkest Hour. She also recently starred in the movie Tomb Raider.
Has Kristin Scott Thomas had Plastic Surgery?
The 58-year-old actress admits to considering plastic surgery to regain her youthful look. In an interview, she talked about getting older and how it makes her feel “invisible”. She explained: “I’m not talking about in a private setting, at a dinner party or anything. But when you’re walking down the street, you get bumped into, people slam doors in your face – they just don’t notice you.”
For this reason, she considers undergoing cosmetic surgery to remedy her aging appearance. “Somehow, you just vanish. It’s a cliché, but men grow in gravitas as they get older, while women just disappear,” she added. She later revealed: “At the Cannes Film Festival I got such a shock… I saw lots of my contemporaries there this year, all looking so beautiful and gorgeous and healthy, and I just felt like an old ragbag next to them. I just thought, ‘Maybe it’s time to do something about it, like a facelift.'”
