While some actors would go under the knife for the sake of their careers, Julia Roberts was against it. Even if sticking to a natural look would have meant jeopardizing her career.

Several celebrities are turning to cosmetic procedures to maintain or enhance their public appearance. But Roberts has insisted on avoiding such procedures for himself. The Oscar winner simply uses traditional methods for her looks.

“I am cleaning [my teeth] with baking soda. [My grandfather] would spill a large pile of it on his toothbrush. He’s only had one cavity in his entire life,” she once said InStyle (via Yahoo). “Sometimes that’s all I do in terms of a regimen. Look, I’m happy when I’m wearing moisturizer and ChapStick!”

Instead of surgery, Roberts relied on the features she was already born with to keep her beautiful.

“For me, at this point, I’m clinging to my good genes and lots of hugs and kisses from my husband,” she said.

Although Roberts also pointed out that her beliefs may have had a negative impact on her future career.

“By Hollywood standards, I guess I took a big risk by not having a facelift,” she once said You (via The Guardian). “But I told Lancome I want to be an aging model – so they have to keep me for at least five years until I’m over 50.”

Aging is one of many reasons some choose to go under the knife. But Roberts once shared that she had trouble with the idea of ​​defying age with surgery. She felt that this mindset of more mature women indicates a larger problem in society that needs to be addressed.

“It’s unfortunate that we live in such a panicked, dysmorphic society where women don’t even give themselves a chance to see what they will look like when they get older. I want to have an idea of ​​what I’ll look like before I start cleaning the slates,” Roberts said in a 2010 interview with Elle.

Roberts went on to believe that cosmetic surgery could create drastic changes to a person’s body that might not be worth it.

“I want my kids to know when I’m angry, happy, and confused. Your face tells a story… and it shouldn’t be a story about your drive to the doctor’s office,” she added.

Despite her attitude, even Roberts fell into temptation once as she got older. The procedure Roberts received was relatively light and temporary. But it was enough to validate Roberts’ ideas about cosmetic surgery.

“I tried the botox once and for a couple of months I was constantly amazed and it wasn’t a cute look for me,” she once told Access Hollywood.

Still, Roberts didn’t blame anyone for choosing to have surgery. However, she took a slight jab at the physical harm that surgery could do to a person.

“I don’t want to judge anyone who can’t turn their head or move their lips. I don’t know – if you want your chin on your forehead, I’m not [judge]. If I want this to bring you joy, I’m all for it,” she said.
