Kirstie Alley refuses Botox. The former Cheers (Rebecca Howe) star says no to it because she is not sure what kind of effects theses facial fillers will have on people down the road. The Look Who’s Talking actress says she has never once had surgery done to her, and never would.
She told US radio host Howard Stern:
”I don’t do Botox because don’t you just think in the next 15 years, there’s gonna be a discovery that injecting botulism could have an effect?
”You don’t know what it is. And you don’t know what it’s gonna do to you, or where it’s gonna migrate.”
While she’s never been under the knife herself, she admits to being tempted, adding:
”I don’t have any surgery. I don’t think you should be filling your face. I’ve debated … For 30 years!”
Sixty two ear old Alley also said that she has been advised to have surgery many times, even from the very beginning of her career.
”The first job I had, for ‘Star Trek’, the cinematographer said, ‘You might want to do something about your eyes, because they’re a little bulgy. They’re a little baggy underneath.’
”And then over the years, I started looking at children. Children’s eyes are always sort of baggy … They have the bags under here.
”So I just started thinking. I’m gonna look at what youth looks like. And most of what youth looks like is happy! People are happy, and they have energy and they can move.”
