No plastic surgery for Cate Blanchett

Los Angeles: Hollywood actress Cate Blanchett has ruled out going under the surgeon`s knife in future as she doesn`t see the logic of looking younger than
one`s age.

The `Elizabeth` star, who is widely regarded as one of the world`s most naturally beautiful women, has no desire to get plastic surgery and is happy to look her age, a magazine reported.

"There`s so much pressure and fear to do all that surgery stuff but I`m really not interested in looking 25 again," said the 41-year-old star.

The Oscar-winning actress makes an extra effort to look natural and tries to wear as little make-up as she can.

"There`s a temptation when you get older to put on more make-up, but I try to keep mine looking natural. Even on screen - if you`ve got heaps on, it acts as a mask and as an actor, it`s all about taking off a mask and revealing emotion.

A strong lip can really lift your face, though. Since I cut my hair, I`ve been wearing reds again and experimenting with pinks," she said.

Although she is happy with her looks, the mother-of-three recently cut off her hair to make it manageable.

"I just suddenly thought, `Shall I cut it all off?` As an actress, you get brainwashed into thinking, `I have to get roles!` But what about your everyday life?" Blanchett added.
