Depsite the conventional thinking - I find her absolutely refreshing. She could teach Aniston and Jolie a thing or two about media gamesmanship and humilty.

Sorry, Welch says its a lack of soap which reduces wrinkles on your face.

I agree, R7. When I was a teenager she was 6 years older than me. Now she's just under 3 years older. She can't shave much more off, though, she's already down to being only 20 years old when filming "Mystic Pizza".

The Daily Mail is so unutterably snide and horrible. Even in apparently complimentary articles like this, there's an undercurrent of nastiness. I'd love the tables to be turned, and to see pictures of the bitches that write for it showing their revolting bodies on the beach, or their hideous bitter, deformed faces as they leave their houses in the morning.

by Anonymousreply 2708/21/2010

Bitch, please.

She's had a nose job--take a look at her in "Satisfaction". Her face has been sculpted.

Granted, it's good work & she has been avoiding the "Whatever Happened to Michelle Pfieffer/Jessica Lange/Meg Ryan?" look, but to pretend you're full of wheatgrass & good clean living when you left bits & pieces behind is ridiculous.

I seem to remember her on Letterman claiming she never had plastic surgery.%0D %0D %0D %0D They all say they didn't have any work done, but they do. It's obvious and it was really really obvious that Farrah ruined her face. It was hard to look at her on the tv screen. %0D %0D %0D %0D Michelle Pfeiffer also had a lot of work done to her face. That's why no one has seen much of her anymore. That was a while back, but repug patricia heaton (everybody loves raymond)went on The David Letterman Show and spilled that a person who was on the cover of a magazine that week who just said she would never use botox or get surgery, actually just had work done and patricia knows it because she went to the same plastic surgeon. The very next day heads rolled and heaton issued an apology and a press release saying that she was sorry for any and every thing she said and she didn't mean to insinuate that Michelle or anyone else had any type of surgery%0D %0D %0D %0D I remember watching a clip of heaton and how proud - smug she was to spill those secrets to Letterman. %0D %0D

Look at photos of her in Mystic Pizza. She has NOT had filler work done on her upper lip.

Frankly, I believe her. And I don't think she looks that great anyway. As her face shrinks, her nose looks bigger and hookish. She is not willowy, but is developing a middle-aged body.

I can't say how I know without risking loosing my job, as well as any hope of another in my field, so please don't ask, but she is lying. %0D %0D %0D She's had TONS of Botox and fillers, as well as several minor facial surgeries and two abdominoplasty surgeries after her children were born. %0D %0D %0D Can't stand the woman, but she was very smart about it and started the facial work at the right age so there have been no drastic look changes over the years.

In August of 2010, she was still 42. Turned 43 in October.

A few months ago I said she seemed to have shaved 3 years off her age, but I realize now I based that on thinking she had already had a birthday in 2010. She at most has shaved 2 years off her age. I'm less convinced of that than I was a few months ago.

I don't care that women or men do it, it just irks that they lie about it. Julia was recently quoted as saying she tried botox once and didn't like it. Then you see her at the AA and she can barely move her face. Courtney Cox is another one who said she tried it once and gave it up. It's so ridiculous when you're looking right at them.

It's like Lohan always claiming she was only at a bar because it was a friend's birthday. Why are you pulling my dick?

R98 watching it too on AMC now. She was luminous back then. She really had that "it" quality that made her a star.

Her sexy rom-com days peaked with "My Best Friend's Wedding."

But she made millions upon millions and has three kids and a husband and hates the paps and publicity. In this days of celebs tweeting their whole lives on Twitter, it's almost refreshing to see someone who wants to keep their private lives locked down and out of the spotlight.

(ahem Jen Garner, Jessica Alba, Nic Richie and others who parade their kids out to the paps for profit).

I think she's one of the last true "movie stars." She did many a horrible thing in her young days but TMZ and the web weren't around to document her every move. She was very lucky. I'm sure she knows it.
