|Courtney Thorne Smith is the new frozen face of Botox: convincing?|
|Added 6 years ago||Source: CeleBitchy|
43 year-old former “Melrose Place” actress Courtney Thorne Smith just landed a job promoting Botox. She claimed in a new interview with People that she doesn’t want to look frozen or not like herself, but she just looks crazed in the photo they’re using with the article. I guess she usually looks like that, so mission accomplished.
“It’s never been a secret in my personal life ? I’ve just never been asked by the press,” says Thorne-Smith, 44, the new celebrity face of Botox. “I’ve used it, I like it, it works well for me. That’s just the simple truth.”
The actress and mother of a 3-year-old son owns up to first getting injections about 10 years ago, when the lines on her forehead started to bother her.
“I found I’ve been able to use it and have full expression and look really normal,” she says. “I found the frown line was distracting me ? I was conscious of it. Now I’m not.”
Would the Two and a Half Men guest star consider getting plastic surgery?
“My hope is that if I take good care of my skin and use Botox, I won’t have to use anything else,” says Thorne-Smith, who then adds: “Never say never. I always want to look like myself ? that’s key for me. I don’t want to look like a different person, I don’t want my face frozen.”
I am 38 years old, and I don’t know when the hell that happened. If I knew for a fact that I could get Botox or Restylne tomorrow and look fresh and natural with imperceptible changes I would do it today. If I knew that I could get a face lift or major surgery and end up looking like Sandra Bullock where people would look at me and think “she looks amazing, did she do something because I can’t see it?” I would also do it today. As it is, we notice the bad work, the bulging forehead veins from Botox, the chipmunk cheeks and the plumped up, painful looking lips from fillers. It’s just too much of a risk. Plus I actually like being able to frown. The examples on the Botox website show women who aren’t able to frown afterwards and look kind of evil in the after shots.
I prefer to stay out of the sun for now and practice good skincare. (I got one of those Neutrogena microdermabrasion system for $18 at CVS and that does seem to make a difference in my skin, although I have to use antibiotic ointment on my upper lip and chin area or I will get small blemishes from it.) At some point I may get some injectables. Courtney Thorne Smith isn’t going to convince me though. She looks more like the face of hyperthyroidism with those wide unseeing eyes. She’s like 10 seconds away from lunging at you while cackling loudly. I should be nicer to her. She quit Ally McBeal in 2000 due to her struggles with an eating disorder. She was one of many women who had that problem on that show.
In 2003. See, she looks the same!
In 2009. You can see the difference in the lines on her face from the photo at the very top of the page. I don’t know if it’s better, though.
