Lorraine Kelly has revealed she would never have cosmetic surgery, admitting she has ‘earned’ her laughter lines.
The ITV Lorraine host expressed her fears over looking ‘scary’ if she were to undergo Botox or facial enhancements, claiming she has been put off by certain guests on her show who look like they belong in an episode of Star Trek.
“I haven’t gone down the route of Botox or surgery partly because I’m too scared,’ the 58-year-old said in an interview for the How to Age Well podcast.
‘I have seen on my show how it can make people look and some people look like they should be in Star Trek.’
Lorraine also slammed older stars, such as 80-year-old Jane Fonda, for claiming face creams give them their youthful appearance, despite having undergone cosmetic surgery.
‘Look at Jane Fonda, she’s beautiful and she’s had everything done – facelifts you name it,’ the TV presenter claimed.
‘But she’s advertising cream, I really don’t agree with that. Really, she has a great doctor and lots of money, cream isn’t going to do that. ‘
And it’s those ‘great doctors’ that Lorraine blames for making everyone look ‘generic’.
She added: ‘When you go to LA everyone looks the same like they all went to the same doctor so what’s the point? I’ve earned these laughter lines!
‘You get the face you deserve and you’ll look better if you’re happy and your glass is ‘half full’.’
Lorraine credits inheriting her mother and grandmother’s ‘good genes’ for her youthful appearance, as well as discovering exercise at the age of 50, after battling depression in her forties.
‘When I was in my forties I was a big lass and I was miserable. You eat for comfort and then get depressed so it’s a vicious cycle,’ she said.
‘But when I turned 50 I discovered exercise that I like – it’s really made a difference. It’s tightened everything up and stopped everything from going south for a while.
‘I lost quite a lot of weight and I think that always makes you look better as long as you don’t take it too far. I’m terrible, I drink too much and I eat too much- thank god I do my workout classes or I’d be an Oompa Loompa!’
