Christy Turlington: I will ‘never’ have plastic surgery

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 9 (UPI) — Christy Turlington says she will never change her appearance with plastic surgery.

The 47-year-old supermodel admitted she thinks plastic surgery looks “freaky” while discussing aging in the October issue of Town Country magazine.

“Never,” Turlington declared. “For years these things didn’t even exist: collagen, fat cells, the crazy stuff people do I cannot imagine. First of all, I have no time. Second of all, I don’t think it looks good.”

“Maybe I would think differently if I thought it looked good and it didn’t hurt and it didn’t send bad messages to young people. But I’ve never seem someone who I’ve been like, ‘Oh, that’s a good idea.’ It looks freaky to me,” she confessed.

Turlington, who skyrocketed to fame as a model in the 1990s, told the publication she is focused on family and personal pursuits rather than her looks. She plans to celebrate each coming birthday in a new place, with Chile at the top of her list.

“I wasn’t worried about aging at 16, and I’m not worried about it at 47. It’s a fact of life,” the star said. “Being who you are, being your best self, has nothing to do with what you look like.”

Turlington had shared similar sentiments about aging in a promotional video for Imedeen released in April 2014. The model was named the new face of the nutritional supplements company in January of that year.

“There are no negatives about getting older, honestly. The older I get, the more comfortable in my skin I am. It’s much more me,” she said in the ad.

Turlington married actor Edward Burns in San Francisco, Calif., in 2010. The couple share two children, 12-year-old daughter Grace and 10-year-old son Finn.
