Amanda Donohoe Vows Never to Undergo Cosmetic Surgery

July 06, 2010 03:27:02 GMT

British actress Amanda Donohoe has vowed never to undergo cosmetic surgery, because she finds it "weird" when movie stars cover up the aging process. The "Castaway" star is adamant Botox injections and facelifts are "perpetuating a lie" by hiding wrinkles, and she's determined to keep it real by shunning anti-ageing treatments.

She tells Britain's The People, "I saw a picture of Sophia Loren and Raquel Welch together and the frightening thing was their faces looked the same as they did 20 years ago. I find that truly awful. It's not only weird, it's kind of perpetuating a lie, saying that aging doesn't happen when it quite clearly does. We should all just get over it and grow old graciously."

July 06, 2010 02:57:46 GMT

Pop superstar Prince is adamant he will never sell his songs on the Internet, insisting web-based outlets will soon disappear because they are no longer "hip". The "Purple Rain" hitmaker has long battled to keep his music offline - in 2007 he sued video sharing website YouTube.com as well as eBay.com claiming they "are clearly able (to) filter porn and pedophile material but appear to choose not to filter out the unauthorized music and film content which is core to their business success."

Prince has also moved to ban fansites using images and anything linked to his likeness, while a home video of a child dancing to one of his songs on YouTube was pulled down in 2007 after the star's Universal Music Publishing claimed the recording infringed copyright. The artist is still refusing to allow websites to sell his music and he's adamant fans will soon move on from the Internet.
