EVANGELINE Lilly insists she’s “too vain” to have plastic surgery as she doesn’t think it improves people’s image and her image is important to her.
The 35-year-old actress has confessed she admires women in the public eye who choose to grow old gracefully rather than going under the knife and admits she could never have cosmetic surgery herself because she cares too much about how she looks.
She explained: “I think women in Hollywood who don’t do Botox and plastic surgery are revered, I revere them…My plan is to never go there. I’m too vain to get plastic surgery because I don’t like how it looks, and I want to look my best.”
‘The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies’ star – who has three-year-old son Kahekili with partner Norman Kali – went on to admit that while her style has changed with age, she feels more comfortable experimenting with fashion now than when she was younger.
Speaking to the Winter 2015 issue of Fashion magazine, Evangeline said: “I’m 35. I’m a mom, and my body isn’t the same as it was at 25 … I’ve earned the right to take chances. That’s the benefit of getting older and wiser – your risks don’t have to be calculated anymore.”
She added: “I haven’t even scratched the surface of fashion yet. If you are not a clearly defined human being, it is very hard to define your image … What I’ve realised in my own journey in fashion is that I’m not that defined.
“I do feel like I’m at ease in my own skin when I find an androgynous balance.” â€“ Bang Media
