Meryl Streep slams male stars for going under the knifeJuly 8th, 2008 - 6:25 pm ICT by ANI
Washington , July 8 (ANI): American actress Meryl Streep has slammed male stars who have plastic surgery to retain their youthful looks.
The 59-year-old actress, who has resisted having any surgery done to enhance her looks, insists that men should just give up and “embrace getting older”.
Streep voiced her worries about the growing number of actors who are looking to surgeons for a helping hand with their appearance.
“You”d be amazed how many men in the industry have gone down that road. I don”t get it. I think you have to embrace getting older and celebrate life,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
While others find growing old a daunting aspect of life, Streep on the other hand insists that she is actually more secure in her work now that she is no longer considered a Hollywood beauty.
“The good thing about getting older is that when they do cast you it’’s often something interesting - you”re no longer asked to be the beautiful leading lady, she said.
“You”re allowed to do different things. I”ve had some very interesting parts over the past few years in films that examine all the idiosyncrasies people have,” she added. (ANI)
