Julianne Moore, 55
The petite 55-year-old redhead played a porn star in "Boogie Nights," but in real life, she firmly believes in natural beauty and an acceptance of aging. "With few exceptions, people always look like they've had [plastic] surgery. They don't look any younger," says Moore, seen here in "Still Alice." "Age is about lifespan, about the journey we take."
Jamie Lee Curtis, 57
The one-time scream queen, who made her debut in the 1978 slasher flick "Halloween," now rages against the seemingly universal fear of growing older. "I am appalled that the term we use to talk about aging is 'anti,'" she once blogged. "Aging is human evolution in its pure form. Death, taxes and aging …. We are ALL going to age and soften and mellow and transition."
Lauren Hutton, 72
The gap in her front teeth didn't derail the modeling career of the now legendary cover girl. Not surprisingly, she embraces the natural beauty of the aging process over the unnatural results of cosmetic surgery. "Our wrinkles are our medals of the passage of life," says Hutton. "They are what we have been through and who we want to be. I don't think I will ever cut my face, because once I cut it, I'll never know where I've been"
Julia Roberts, 48
Hard to believe that the knockout named 11 times to People magazine's list of the "50 Most Beautiful People in the World" once thought it was necessary to give Botox a shot. "It was not a cute look for me," she later reported, disturbed by the procedure's frozen-face syndrome. "My feeling is, I have three children who should know what emotion I'm feeling at the exact moment I'm feeling it."
Diane Keaton, 70
The actress knows how to get a laugh ("Annie Hall") and how to be serious ("The Godfather"), but she's still on the fence about cosmetic surgery. "I just don't know if I want to mess with that," she said earlier this year. "The point is, no matter what you do, you're going to get older and you won't be here forever. So how do you grapple with it? How do you feel good about yourself?"
Ines de la Fressange, 58
The Parisian model and designer says there are just four essentials in her beauty routine: protective day cream, Dior's Crème Abricot nail cream, no sun and lots of sleep. Botox and plastic surgery won't be added to that list anytime soon. "I would be too afraid I wouldn't recognize myself anymore," she told the London Evening Standard earlier this month.
Stevie Nicks, 68
Unlike cocaine and other recreational drugs, one Botox experience caused the Fleetwood Mac singer to swear off the stuff forever. "Botox makes everybody look like Satan's children," she said last year. "You'd have to tie me down to get me to do it again."
Emma Thompson, 57
A few years ago, the English actress and her Academy Award-winning friend and compatriot, Kate Winslet, created the British Anti-Cosmetic Surgery League and made a pact to never get plastic surgery or Botox treatments. "It's not a normal thing to do," says Thompson, "and the culture that we've created that says it's normal, is not normal."
Salma Hayek, 49
The Mexican beauty has been fighting off the allure of Botox like the grubby paws of a Hollywood producer. "Trust me, I've been tempted—but I resist!" she says. "Think about what happens to your muscles and skin if you're sick and don't move for a few days. It all atrophies! Plus, if you freeze a muscle in your face, other muscles have to compensate. Once you stop, what does that look like?"
Charlotte Rampling, 70
The internationally heralded British actress preaches patience to anyone considering a facelift. "You've got to wait," she said in a 2012 interview. "There's always a frightening point when your face starts to change, and that's when you want [plastic surgery]. But if you go through that change—and it lasts quite a long time, maybe 10 years—then you find actually that you've grown into an older face."
Sigourney Weaver, 66
To the three-time Academy Award nominee, staring into the face of a killer "Alien" isn't nearly as frightening as Botox. "I find that look scary," she once said in an interview. "I like getting older. There's nothing more inspiring to me than a woman in her 70s who's full of life and still useful. I never notice age in people's faces. I just look at the whole person."
Jodi Foster, 53
The former child star and two-time Oscar winner has no desire to recapture her youth through cosmetic surgery. "For me, it's really a self-image thing," she told People magazine. "Like, I'd rather have somebody go, 'Wow, that girl has a bad nose' than 'Wow, that girl has a bad nose job.'"
