Kristin Cavallari

"My goal is to never get Botox or any other filler or injectable, for that matter," she writes in her book Balancing in Heels: My Journey to Health, Happiness, and Making It All Work. " I don't hate on people who get Botox; I would just prefer to do everything a more natural way. We don't know the long-term effects of that stuff, and it doesn't seem right to me. We are supposed to age—that's part of life!"

Cameron Diaz

While Diaz has "no judgment on how people feel good," she encourages others to understand the reasoning behind procedures like Botox.

"They're to help people feel a little bit better about themselves," Diaz says in her book The Longevity Book. "If they do feel better about themselves, then those procedures have worked. I have no problem with that. And [in] a lot of instances, it does make you look like you've taken a nap...or that you might be a little younger than you looked maybe the day before."

Julia Roberts

"I want my kids to know when I'm pissed, when I'm happy and when I'm confounded," she tells ELLE. "Your face tells a story and it shouldn't be a story about your drive to the doctor's office."

Brooke Shields

Shields admits that she's tried Botox, but is fearful of doing too much. "I want laser treatment because I'm not a fan of my wrinkles," she tells Ladies' Home Journal. "But I have to find someone with a light touch. I'm scared I'll end up looking like the Joker."

Courteney Cox

Cox, whose previously revealed getting Botox, has had some plastic surgery regrets. "I was trying to keep up with getting older and trying to chase that [youth]," Cox explained during her appearance on Running Wild With Bear Grylls. "It's something you can't keep up with. Sometimes you find yourself trying [to stop the aging process] and then you look at a picture of yourself and you go, 'Oh god, I look horrible.' I have done things that I regret and luckily there are things that dissolve and go away. So that's good because it's not always been my best look."

Julianne Moore

"I don't believe it makes people look better," Moore tells Allure when asked about cosmetic procedures, like Botox. "I think it just makes them look like they had something done to their face, and I don't think we find that instinctually appealing."

Tina Fey

"We've been so conditioned now to never see a real human face, one that moves, with its original teeth," Fey told Town & Country. "Sometimes we forget that there is a choice. I choose not to do this. It's like wearing multiple pairs of Spanx: Good for you, not for me. Not mandatory."

Kelly Ripa

"I got Botox because people kept saying 'Are you OK' and I'm like, 'I'm fine, why?'" she revealed on Live with Kelly and Michael. 'You look like you're angry.' I was like, 'Then it's time to get Botox.'"

Nicole Kidman

"I've tried a lot of things, but aside from sports and good nutrition, most things don't make a difference," Kidman tells TV Movie. "I have also tried Botox. I didn't like how my face looked afterwards. Now I don't use it anymore–I can move my forehead again!"

Gwyneth Paltrow

"I don't like Botox," Paltrow tells Cosmopolitan UK. "I think on some faces it works, but it's when you can really see it that it starts to look fake. I think people look at tiny patches of their face and try to fix everything–they've lost the plot!"

Salma Hayek

"I don't believe in Botox, especially when [people] do it so young," Hayek tells People. "They destroy themselves. They keep telling young girls, 'Do it young, so you never get wrinkles.' No, your face is going to fall. You'll have to keep getting more and more and more each time. So if you're going to do it, I recommend doing it as late as you can."

Amanda Seyfried

"Face-lifts and Botox are very different, one's more extreme," she tells New York. "I'm 30, going to be 31 in a couple of days, and I don't want to knock that stuff—to each their own. But I also feel like there's a look. When you start doing that, you start looking the same as everyone else. Because unfortunately, you're conforming to something and your face doesn't move. Everybody's faces blending into each other and the more surgery you do, with the big lips, skinny nose and tight brow—why would you want to look like everybody else [in Hollywood]?"

Linda Evangelista

"I was the first person to ever admit that I did Botox, and my Mom was upset," Evangelista told Harper's Bazaar. "I said, 'Mom everybody does it,' and she was like, 'Yeah but they don't say it.' So if I was the first one to tell the truth about using it then, why would I lie about it now?"

Robin Wright

"Everybody f*cking does it," Wright tells the Telegraph. "I suppose I can't say 'everybody' because I don't know for sure, but come on. It's just the tiniest sprinkle of Botox twice a year. I think most women do 10 units, but that freezes the face and you can't move it. This is just one unit, and it's just sprinkled here and there to take the edge off... Perhaps it's not wise to put that in a magazine? But I ain't hiding anything."

Jennifer Aniston

Aniston worries that it's easy to lose perspective when it comes to treatments like Botox. "Why would you want to atrophy muscles anyway?" she poses to InStyle. "If you don't work out, eventually everything drops."

"I'm totally not against plastic surgery," she told Nightline in 2010. "I've tried Botox before. That's the only thing that I've done."
