Audrey Tautou prefers reading to cosmetic surgery.
The â€˜Coco Before Chanel’ actress has no intention of going under the knife, maintaining she is happy to grow old gracefully.
She said: â€œI’d rather read a book than get Botox.
The 33-year-old actress refuses to call herself a natural beauty, but admits she is too lazy to become obsessed with her appearance.
She explained: â€œI don’t think of myself as a beautiful! But I think you feel beautiful when you accept yourself exactly as you are, imperfections and all.
â€œBeing a bit of a tomboy, I do my own make-up really quickly and don’t obsess over products. I only use body lotion about once a year. I’m terrible!
Despite her relaxed attitude towards cosmetics, Audrey , who is the spokeswoman for Chanel no. 5 fragrance , can’t leave her house unless she has spritzed on some scent.
She revealed to Britain’s Cosmopolitan magazine: â€œPerfume means much more than make-up or clothes. You wear perfume like a secret that you only share with someone you get close to, like a kiss. I love being enveloped in scent.
â€œI couldn’t love a man who doesn’t love Chanel No. 5! It would be hopeless.
