It is fair to say that Julianne Moore is not the biggest fan of Botox and has previously said that she 'doesn't know' why some women choose to have the procedure.
Whether you are for or against it, cosmetic procedures are still a very heated debate up until this day, even though they've been around for quite a few years now.
However, the 62-year-old actor has made her thoughts on the matter very clear though, as she has spoke against Botox in countless interviews over the years.
In 2021, she told W Magazine that she was sick of the term 'ageing gracefully'.
She said: "There's so much judgement inherent in the term ‘aging gracefully'. Is there an ungraceful way to age? We don't have an option, of course.
"No one has an option about aging, so it's not a positive or a negative thing, it just is.
"It's part of the human condition, so why are we always talking about it as if it is something that we have control over?"
But Moore has been speaking about the pressure that women face as they age and the use of Botox for a long time, having talked on the subject back in 2010 and 2008.
Even back then, she had no plans to get any herself, saying that she 'doesn't know why women do Botox'.
Speaking with the Observer Magazine, The Hunger Games star said: "It doesn't make them look younger, it just makes them look like they had work done. You are not going to look the same as you did at 25.
"What are you going to do about it?"
However, she did say that it is a bit different for people that work in the film industry: "It’s hard for actresses.
"Our faces get to be blown up 50 feet wide, and you see stuff that otherwise you wouldn’t. People freak out."
After pointing out some changes in her appearance that she wasn't too fond of, Moore added: "I try not to worry about it or think that there’s any limit.
"But as for actually being comfortable in my own skin, I don’t think anybody is … it’s not possible to feel good about yourself at all times."
And in 2010, she told Allure that she 'hates to condemn people for doing it', adding: "But I don’t believe it makes people look better. I think it just makes them look like they had something done to their face, and I don’t think we instinctively find that appealing."
Fellow actor, Courteney Cox, recently spoke about how getting fillers was her 'biggest regret'.
She said: "I look at pictures of me from when I thought I looked okay, and I can't believe it."
