No Botox for the eyeballs

If it were possible, I wonder if Granny Freeze would take care of that too. Then she’d never be caught by cameras looking like this. Which is less than perfect. And less than perfect isn’t good enough. Only completely immobilised and creaseless is good enough. But let’s not fault Gran for seeming tired. It’s exhausting trying to move something that no longer moves. That forehead, see? There’s a slight ripple. I know you can’t tell but she’s actually working really hard at frowning.

Happily, every other shot is immaculate. Nicole Kidman took her third lip to Capitol Hill yesterday like it was a Hollywood photo shoot. Look at it. Look at it squeezing out from underneath the natural line of the top part of her mouth. Look at it flapping out on both sides when she smiles, squeezing glossy dough, spilling over even in the pout position. And some new extensions too? Added volume never hurts.

Gran was there to testify for an International Violence Against Women hearing. She is the Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Development Fund for Women and of course this is great. What would also be great is if she could encourage women to embrace aging gracefully. That would be great too.
