Please, please stop

So I'm having a lovely Easter brunch/movie day with a gfriend of mine who's going into production on a million dollar film she's directing. And she wants to cast this amazing older actress from the 80s-90s (NONE of your business who. Really.). But she CAN'T because the poor lady has had some bad plastic surgery.

And I'm thinking, after seeing the amazing au naturale Julie Christie last night in "Away From Her"...are women still their worst enemy?

I mean, everyone says there are no good roles for women over forty, and they HAVE to keep up with the Joneses by having plastic surgery but...this is not the first time I've heard this story. I have other gfriends desperate to cast the icons from their youth, but they have to actually schedule a meeting to see what Frankenstein creature is going to walk in.

I didn't realize Jennifer Gray played on friends until I heard of her botched plastic surgery. I just don't understand it.

But I have to agree. So, no plastic surgery for you, right?

DK if this counts as a plastic surgery gone wrong, but... Meg Ryan's face? WTF happened to it the past 5-6 years?

Agree with lynda re: Jennifer Grey. While the "new" face is certainly attractive -- it just wasn't the Ms. Grey I remember. And I thought that was one actually fairly lovely, myself.

Lynda, no more plastic surgery for me. I like my wrinkles.

MIM, agreed on both!!!
