It's not Botox and surgery. But it's not just soap and water, either. Ellen Barkin, 53, star of Ocean's Thirteen , explains what she does to stay looking so good. Fair warning: Some of it hurts. What she thinks is worse than an old woman who's too thin: "Nothing. I wouldn't just color it once and then let it grow in brown and gray!
I do weights, floor exercises, sit-ups and push-ups. No aerobics. And I've never had a weight issue. I gained 50 pounds with each of my two kids, but after they were born, the weight just dropped away and I was thinner than before I got pregnant. But when I was pregnant, I took up a lot of space. I used Retin-A for about 10 years. She took me off all acidic products. Radu believes that acids make the skin overly sensitive and irritated, and should be used only occasionally. Now I use a gentle scrub twice a day for exfoliation, and very rich moisturizers in the Cellcosmet skincare line.
Brandt [peeling system] Laser A-Peel, which, now that I think of it, has acids in it. What she tried once and will never, ever do again: "Botox. I don't like the way it makes people look. Too many people go overboard, and for an actress, that's deadly. It keeps you from being able to have expressions. Some actresses who used to have a beautiful smile have this weird kind of oval thing they do with their mouths instead.
They can't frown anymore, either. They look like they've lost their minds. Any plastic surgeon would look at me and try to even it out, and to do that he'd have to change everything, straighten my nose, make my eyes rounder. I don't want to do that! I've been having it three times a year for the past three years. And it's painful—like burning-hot elastic bands snapping against my face.
But I keep doing it. It doesn't hurt, there's hardly any downtime, and I've seen a huge difference in my skin. But I have it done only here and there, not all over my face. People are having fillers injected into their jaws; they look like squirrels. I'd never say I'll never have a facelift, but I'm way too scared of looking like a different person.
I have no philosophical or political position on plastic surgery; I just don't want to look crazy. And I don't like not being able to tell how old someone is: It's creepy. What her friend Susan Sarandon told her about being an actor and looking older: "She said, 'They'll always need women to play people's mothers. Then those of us who don't have plastic surgery will have jobs. On a regular day, I curl my lashes with a Shu Uemura curler and apply lots of moisturizer. If I'm going out to lunch, I'll use a black Maybelline waterproof mascara—my eyes tear—and maybe a little Chantecaille concealer and Rosebud Salve.
No blush because my cheeks are pink enough. And if I'm getting really dressed up, I'll smudge a black Stila eyeliner pencil on my upper lid. I also like CoverGirl lipstick, a sheer nude. And Stila glosses, because they stay put, but they're a little sticky if you're kissing. I never wear foundation. Or eyeshadow, unless I'm being photographed. But actually, I try not to carry a bag at all; makeup really stays on my face, so I don't need touch-ups, and it's not like if someone needed to reach me they wouldn't know where I was They were chipped in a huge V. I had caps put on, but they were always falling off.
One day when I was 13, they fell off as I leaned out our third-floor window at home talking to my boyfriend. After that, I didn't replace them till I was I mean, it wasn't enough to have the little eyes and the crooked nose, but I had to have the broken teeth, too.Lady in her 50s looking
