Meryl Streep and Heidi Klum Not Fond of Plastic Surgery

Both Meryl Streep and Heidi Klum have recently gone on record as being anti-plastic surgery. According to

“You'd be amazed how many men in the industry have gone down that road,” Meryl Streep observed. "I don't get it.” Streep revealed that true actors should realize that often more interesting roles come to the older set anyway. “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. When actors aren’t hired just for their matinee looks they are given the chance to play roles that “examine all the idiosyncrasies people have.” Streep remained refreshingly free of believing in unattainable standards of youth and beauty. “I think you have to embrace getting older and celebrate life,” she advised.

According to, Heidi Klum stated:

There’s something odd when you’re 35 or 40 and ironed to the max. You change with time, and it’s fine. Everywhere there are these stand-up cards saying, ‘Have a little silicone while you get your roots done.’ I want to be the opposite of that.

It's easy for them to say that. One is arguably one of the greatest actresses of all time, and the other is a supermodel. I say, to each their own!

So, Ms. Klum, breast implants are no longer considered cosmetic surgery? What is it called now? Work necessities?

From what I've seen on TV, and through online headlines, Heidi seems desperate to get as much time in front of the camera as possible.

I'm betting Heidi starts off with small plastic surgeries, since she's only 35 and still has a bit of youth to hang onto. But as middle-age starts showing on her, I bet she changes her tune, and goes overboard with the plastics -- she just seems that way to me, I hope I'm wrong, and she follows in Christie Brinkey's footsteps.

Hmmm... so nose jobs and boob jobs don't count?

Everyone knows Heidi has breast implants and a nose job. Who does she think she is fooling?

Women need to be empowered more in general. They need to use their looks for good rather than use them for personal selfish persuits. When you get a moment check out: .

is it possible that a woman of 59 can look as good as meryl streep does? after seeing her in DEVIL WEARS PRADA, it seems hard to believe. her face looked flawless, but, i admit, not at all plasticized. any opinions doctor?

I have never seen obvious signs of plastic surgery on Meryl Streep. She looks good for her age!

I think some people simply take excellent care of their skin. I for one am finicky when it comes to going out in the sun without wearing a high SPF, cruising in my convertible without a hat, or lying out on occasion with huge sunglasses and both of the above.

Take care of your skin, and it will take care of you!
