Gwyneth Paltrow covers the May issue of Harper’s Bazaar and in her lengthy interview she revealed some skincare regimen secrets. While discussing her current aversion to plastic surgery, Paltrow also jokingly insulted famous funny lady (and known loud mouth) Joan Rivers.
“I would be scared to go under the knife, but you know, talk to me when I’m 50. I’ll try anything,” Paltrow told Harper’s. “Except I won’t do Botox again, because I looked crazy. I looked like Joan Rivers!”
Never one to keep quiet for long, Rivers shared her feelings on the matter with People and, characteristically, kept her sense of humor about the jab.
“First reaction: ‘Ooh, she watches Fashion Police!’” Rivers told the mag. “It just made me laugh. She says Botox made her scary like Joan Rivers? She should see what I look like without Botox. That’s really scary!”
More seriously, Rivers revealed that she has always been open about her plastic surgery because she feels that lying about it is more of an insult to women. “I’ve always been open about what I do, because I want [women] to be able to get Botox and not look like a Sharpei,” she said. “[Lying about having work done] is such a put down to women. It says to the average woman: ‘I’m beautifully naturally and you’re not.’”
