Joel Madden terrified of Botox as he approaches 40

Rocker Joel Madden would rather go into hiding than inject his face with Botox.

The Good Charlotte star, who is married to fashionista Nicole Richie, turns 40 next year (11Mar19), and as the age milestone looms, concerns about fading looks are beginning to flood his mind.

However, Joel has pretty much shut down prospects of cosmetically enhancing his features, swearing off wrinkle-blasting injections like facial paralysis drug Botox.


“I have trouble trusting the idea of that stuff. It scares me,” Madden revealed on the High Heels and Hangovers podcast earlier this week (ends10Aug18). “If it’s (ageing) that crazy that I feel like I need to change my look just because people are scrutinising it, I don’t know. I’d rather just move away and live in privacy.”

“I’d rather go and just move to a farm somewhere and live out my days,” he added.

The Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous hitmaker, who has another fashion forward star Cameron Diaz as a sister-in-law, admits he is slowly coming to terms with getting older and he is leaning towards not caring whatsoever about his physical looks as he climbs towards his Golden Years.

“I’m going to be 40 in March and I look like c**p right now. I’m jet lagged and I was up late last night, but, I mean for me, ageing is whatever. Why fight it?” he mused. “I’m not trying to fight it. I mean, what am I going to do? I’m married with two kids. I’m not trying to be anything but what I am.”
