Hollywood icon Joan Collins, 90, insists she’s never gone under the knife to alter her appearance.
Collins opened up about her beauty routine and revealed the reason she never opted to have any cosmetic procedures done to her face throughout her glittering silver screen career was due to her fear of needles.
“I’ve had nothing done,” she told The Guardian after receiving a compliment on her skin.
“I couldn’t do all that. First of all, I’m needle-phobic. It was my mother who told me to moisturize and use night cream.”
The “Dynasty” actress said she stays out of the sun to achieve her youthful glow and admits that she advises her two daughters Tara Newley, 59, and Katyana Kass, 51, to do the same.
Despite her candid admission, Collins did admit to trying out Botox in a 2012 interview with Glamour magazine.
“I had it once in my forehead and it hurt like hell,” she told the publication at the time, admitting that the experience put her off plastic surgery for good.
“Plus, you see all these plastic surgery nightmares these days. I have girlfriends who’ve had Botox and been left with lumps in their faces. And the lips, don’t even get me started.”
Asked if she’s offended when people assume she’s had any work done, the actress said at the time, “No, no. But you know what they say about plastic surgery, don’t you? It’s the plain woman’s revenge.”
“And the truth is I’ve always taken very good care of my skin, and always, always worn make-up,” she added.
In April 2022, Collins hit back at fellow actress Jane Seymour after the “Wedding Crashers” star name-dropped her in a Daily Express interview with about going under the knife.
“I am unusual in Hollywood in not having work done. I only know one other actress who hasn’t had it – though she might have now!” the “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman” star said.
“I felt as an actress, I needed to have all the moving parts moving. And I’m at the point in life where it’s not all about looking perfect – it’s about playing a character.”

Alongside a photo of herself, Collins wrote, “I am another #actress in #hollywood who hasn’t had any ‘work’ done @janeseymour — there’s many of us! @dailyexpress.”
Collins has always denied getting any plastic surgery and has slammed the Kardashians for their alleged fondness for it.
“Kris Jenner, the mother, is a good friend of mine,” Collins wrote in her 2021 book “My Unapologetic Diaries.” “And I don’t want to be rude about her children, but there’s an awful lot of surgery there and I’ve talked to my friends about it, as I’m sure you have, the bottoms, the tiny waists.”
