Los Angeles: Actress Olivia Wilde feels "saddened and grossed out" by young women who undergo cosmetic surgery to improve their looks.

The 29-year-old has urged girls to eat a healthy diet and indulge in exercise, instead of resorting to drastic measures to change their appearance.

"Don`t cut your face. I am so saddened and grossed out by young women who look like creepy, old aliens because of their new Barbie noses and lips. Is that a smile or a grimace? Did you melt hot wax on your face, or is that your skin?," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Wilde as saying.

"A better approach, take care of yourself now that you`re old enough to know how. Drink water, sleep eight hours, and don`t go within 400 feet of a tanning booth or I`ll slap you hard," she added.

The actress also insists that she is looking forward to turning 30 in March 2014.

"I`m hitting a major milestone 30, or as I like to call it, the `cut the bulls**t and go be awesome` stage," said Wilde.

The `Tron: Legacy` star also advices other women, who are turning 30.

"Now you get to live with that knowledge (you gained in your 20s) under your belt. Also, make it a nice belt. You`re 30. Stop dressing like a hobo. And don`t be bogged down by your past.

"Consider your baggage (bad boyfriends, job setbacks, body issues) lost by the airline of life, leaving you empty-handed at your new destination with only one choice, go shopping," said Wilde.
