AceShowbiz - Brooke Shields has admitted to hating the result of her botox injection. While opening up about plastic surgery in a new interview, the actress portraying Violet in a 1978 movie titled "Pretty Baby" explained the reasons why she was not happy with her look following the injection.
Speaking to Glamour magazine about plastic surgery, the 58-year-old actress said, "I am all for any of it if it truly is done for yourself, for the right reasons, and gives you a level of some kind of confidence that you need. Listen, I've seen it give women such confidence. But I think it's easy to go down the slope of overdoing it."
Brooke went on to state, "I'm scared of not looking like myself." She explained, "The times that I've had Botox, I end up with this Spock eye and I'm like, I don't look like myself. But I'll get Fraxels, and peels, and whatever the newest thing is, and I'll try it. She stressed, I just don't want to not look like myself."
The actress further declared, "In some cultures we're the wise women who decide who the chiefs are, who are revered. Here people are, I mean, look around this room. There's more and more plastic surgery than ever. Because they're chasing youth." She pointed out, "I don't want to chase youth. I want to chase now."
Brooke discussed various topics during the chat with the magazine. Elsewhere in the interview, Brooke spilled that she suffered from a seizure. "Low sodium. I had had too much water. I flooded my system, and I drowned myself. And if you don't have enough sodium in your blood or urine or your body, you can have a seizure," she said.
"And then male doctors kept asking me if I was limiting my salt. And I said, 'You know what? I've had it with male doctors. I know you're all smart-smarter than I am in what you do," she recalled. "But let me just tell you something: I look younger when I'm bloated. If I'm bloated, people think I've had Botox."
"So as a 58-year-old woman, I'm not limiting my salt, okay? Stop trying to make me a crazy actress or a female that doesn't know what the f**k they're doing," she continued. "I was drinking too much water because I felt dehydrated because I was singing more than I've ever sung in my life and doing a show and a podcast. So they were just like, 'Eat potato chips every day.' "
