Celebs Talk Body Issues in The Weekly Round-Up

Princess 19 on 18 Mar 2011 at 12:00am

It’s no secret that celebrities’ views, as well as endorsements, regarding cosmetic enhancement are scrutinized by many. This week, we have Claire Danes’ very vocal take on both.

Danes' interview in the Stylelist tackled the ominous question, “Do you support plastic surgery?”

"I'm really fortunate in that I'm still quite young, and can get away with a lot, and my body is very forgiving. We'll see how things progress. I think it's great that women have so much choice now, and choice in products that are backed by science. As long as people are aware of potential risks, and they're working closely with a doctor, I say go for it," says Danes.

"These are real intimate personal decisions, and I don't think anyone should judge anyone," the Emmy and Golden Globe winning actress says. In a celebrity world filled with Hollywood denial of “did she or didn’t she,” this is particularly refreshing. Claire also gave her take on her endorsed product, the prescription lash enhancer, Latisse (which 87% of reviewers say is Worth It).

"My makeup artist, Matin, sometimes even has to trim them a bit! I still use mascara on the red carpet, but I never wear fake eyelashes anymore, which I used to do pretty often. It helps cut down on that whole process of being made up," said Danes.

Somehow she forgot to mention her sensitivity she complained about back in December. But, we digress.
