Julia Roberts 'Big Risk' In Saying No To Facelift


Everyone is weighing in on the 'did she?!' or 'didn't she!?' plastic surgery rumors swirling around actress Renee Zellweger. The actress' face was unrecognizable at an Elle event last week, prompting a flurry of rumors that the "Bridget Jones" star went under the knife.

Now, actress Julia Roberts is opening up to Britain's You magazine about the pressure women in Hollywood face to look young.

Check out Julia through the years:



"By Hollywood standards, I guess I've already taken a big risk in not having had a facelift, but I've told Lancome that I want to be an aging model -- so they have to keep me for at least five more years until I'm over 50," the Academy Award winner told the magazine while promoting her new role as the face of Lancome.

The secret to Julia Roberts already successful plan to age gracefully? Well, she attributes much of it to practicing yoga and de-cluttering her life. "It's about non-grasping, non-hoarding, cleaning out your closet, dusting out your mind and letting go of the things that weigh you down mentally and emotionally," Roberts says.

Oddly enough, Zellweger attributes her about-face to a change in lifestyle as well. "My friends say that I look peaceful. I am healthy. For a long time I wasn't doing such a good job with that," the Jerry Maguire star told People. "I took on a schedule that is not realistically sustainable and didn't allow for taking care of myself."

For those of you who wish you had more time to take care of yourselves like Julia and Renee, Roberts admits she knows how atypical her life is. "I often think about the reality of my life versus a mother who, say, lives in Kansas City and is struggling to pick up the kids when she gets off work, or who doesn't get to choose not to go to work because she wants to stay at home with the kids," Julia told You.

"Those mothers are my real-life heroes, and they include my girlfriends, who do this with joy and grace and with full-time jobs. I don't have to worry about it and I'm grateful for that."

Isn't she lovely?!
