Dame Joan Collins Talks Plastic Surgery: 'Cosmetic Surgery Is Scary... I Don't Want To Look Like A Barbie Doll'

Joan Collins has admitted she doesn't understand why so many stars choose to have plastic surgery, when the results can look "horrific".


The iconic British actress, who is about to play the Queen Mother in new drama 'The Royals', claimed that she stays away from plastic surgery because: "I don't want to look like a plastic Barbie doll".

However, Joan did confess that she'd been tempted by cosmetic surgery in the past, but says she's "too scared" to pursue it.

"I like my laugh lines - it would be crazy not to have any at my age - and luckily I have good cheekbones."

Joan went on to say she is unimpressed with the "sheep mentality" she sees among younger actresses, adding that it appears as though no one wants to break the mould anymore.

"These women, including Sophia Loren and Elizabeth Taylor, did their own hair and make-up and they always looked incredible."

So far, 2015 has got off to a great start for Joan, as well as her forthcoming role opposite Elizabeth Hurley in 'The Royals', she was also listed in the Queen's New Year Honours list, alongside Sheridan Smith and James Corden.
