As the face of Clinique, it goes without saying that we want to steal all of Emilia Clarke‘s skincare secrets.
In a new interview with ELLE UK, the Last Christmas actress got candid about Botox and injectables, and whether she’d ever consider having plastic surgery. Discussing the “worst skincare advice” she’d ever been given, Clarke revealed, “I once had a facialist who told me I needed fillers and I showed her the door. I was literally just like, ‘get out.’ Her exact words were, ‘Then, you can have your face back.’ At that point I was 28.”
In fact, Clarke has a healthy approach to aging, as she told the publication, “You’ve got this idea of aging, and then you’ve got the idea of what aging makes you look like. At 34, I am wiser, more intelligent, I’ve had more experiences, I’ve done all this stuff and I’m proud of that. You can only do that because you are the age you are. Time is the only thing allows you to do those things. So, if my face is gonna reflect the time that I’ve spent on this earth, I’m down for that.”
As an actress, the Game of Thrones star has, at times, felt the pressure to get work done. She revealed, “You hear about all your contemporaries getting it done and you’re like, ‘Does that mean I have to? Should I be doing that?’ And then you work on a movie and the director of photography lights you beautifully and you get over it.”
In fact, Clarke is prepared to walk away from Hollywood altogether, if necessary. “I work in an industry where I’ve got to move my face, and I’ve got to be expressive, and you can’t light filler. You just can’t light it. It doesn’t look right, you look shiny and strange,” she told ELLE UK. “If my job is telling me that I need to have anything more than possibly a bit of Botox when I’m 45 or whatever, then I’ll stop doing the job.”
