Mia Freedman, 49, reveals why she will never get Botox


‘No needles in my face’: Mia Freedman, 49, shares the reason why she will never get Botox


She’s preparing to turn 50 next month, but Mamamia founder Mia Freedman says she has no plans to turn back the clock with Botox.

Appearing in an Instagram video on Sunday, the media entrepreneur revealed she’s considered taming her facial lines with Botox in the past, but feels uneasy with the idea of embracing a cosmetically-enhanced look.  

‘My decision not to have had Botox up until this point is not about thinking I’m better than someone who has had Botox, because that’s just completely not true,’ Mia told the camera.

‘It’s more about not trusting myself. Not wanting to open that Pandora’s Box. Like, sometimes you have a line in the sand for yourself.’

The mother-of-three said she is scared of going over the top with injectable treatments, and doesn’t want to risk ruining her face. 

‘So some people find it easier to not have to make choices and use their self-discipline,’ she explained.

‘So for me, for example, I find it easier to exercise every day of the week, seven days of the week rather than say, “Oh I’m just going to exercise a few times a week’, because every day I’ve got to decide”.’  

She continued: ‘If just say to myself, ‘no needles in my face’, then that’s just an easy thing to maintain. But as soon as I open that door and get a little bit [of Botox] I’m worried that I will then… that Pandora’s Box will be open.’ 

‘And then, I’ll be like, ‘I want a bit more like this, and a bit more like this,” she explained.

Mia also said she’s scared of going too far and looking like Jocelyn Wildenstein, the American socialite who turned herself into a cat, or ‘frozen’ like ‘some of those actresses’.   

‘I totally understand why [actresses] do it, my god, their face is their fortune. I pass no judgement.’ 

She continued: ‘But it’s not just actresses. It’s influences and all sorts of regular people, where everyone kind of looks a bit the same,’ she insisted.
