Botox at 25? Amanda Seyfried Speaks Out

Sarah Jessica Parker and Actress Kate Winslet

Blonde beauty Amanda Seyfried has created quite a buzz in Hollywood. The actress, best known for her roles in Mean Girlsand Red Riding Hood, reports that she was asked to do Botox for a movie role. This brings up the question: How do younger Hollywood starlets really feel about this cosmetic procedure?

Does “Most Beautiful” Mean Botox?

ABC Newsreports Seyfried reveals her true feelings behind being asked to have the popular injectable treatment: “I was like, Damn you! But we’re in Hollywood. I’m on a huge screen. With these new digital cameras, you can see the peach fuzz on my face.”

The actress shouldn’t take it to heart though; she started out at the tender age of 9 as a child model, a career which continued well into her teens. It’s clear that she’s made her mark as a bombshell in Hollywood, so far without the help of a doctor’s office or a plastic surgeon. She made the list of People Magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People in 2010.

Anti-aging Prevention Hitting  Early, Celebs Seek Fix

The growing trend for cosmetic procedures is not lost on those in the spotlight–it seems to be especially popular for those in their 30s, who may just begin showing signs of aging. Many of these celebrities have openly discussed Botox, including media mogul and socialite Kim Kardashian, 30, who aired a procedure of facial injections on her family’s hit show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, last year. The Orange County register reports actress Jennie McCarthy, 36, is a fan: “I believe in just a little bit. It allows you to keep that mobility in your face. It’s a great little secret.”

Sarah Jessica Parker and Actress Kate Winslet Don’t Back Botox

So, which stars applaud Seyfried for her refusal to back Botox? Sarah Jessica Parker is a likely ally. The star of Sex and the City has long voiced her opposition of the celebrity beauty trend. Kate Winslet, 36, just voted Most Glamorous by Glamour magazine for the third consecutive year, denies any use of Botox.

It’s clear that the media will always be split between medical intervention and enhancement vs. natural beauty. Either way, it looks like Amanda Seyfried won’t be at a loss for like-minded supporters in Hollywood. Which side are you on?
