Lauren Hutton: ‘I tried Botox once’

Lauren Hutton will never be tempted to get Botox injections ever again.

The iconic model/actress has no plans to retire, having landed campaigns for the likes of H&M and Alexander Wang in recent years.

But while many celebrities try out anti-ageing skincare products in order to keep lines and wrinkles at bay, Lauren has now insisted some treatments aren’t for her.


“I tried Botox once, and I jumped back when I saw myself because I had an eyebrow that looked like the Wicked Witch. Go figure,” she recalled in an interview with People magazine. “I took collagen a few times. I had a movie where I had to look like I was 23 and I was 30-something.”

Lauren went on to reveal that a few of her friends had surgery in an effort to look younger but joked that they were now unrecognisable.

And the 75-year-old is adamant that she has now embraced her wrinkles and is enjoying getting older.

“I’ve let go that I look like a miniature Shar-Pei,” the American Gigolo star laughed. “The wrinkles are going to be there, and they really are the badges of your life.”

And Lauren, who walked the runway for Valentino as part of the Italian label’s couture show in July, added that the key to her happiness has been travelling the world.

“I wanted to see the world. I wanted to know what I didn’t know,” she shared. “I would go straight to somewhere 20 degrees above or below the equator, living in wild places, sleeping on the ground or in tents or huts. Places with no GPS. No one can find you. If it went bad, you’re on your own. My face would change. Because I would have learned things.”
