London, Dec. 30 (PTI): Oscar-winner Julia Roberts says she was once asked by a director to get rid of her freckles as it made her look “dirty”.
“One director wanted me to have two freckles taken off because, he said, it made my face look dirty,” Contactmusic reported 46-year-old Roberts as saying.
The mother of three kids, also feels that many old actresses are deeply beautiful and their faces radiate because of confidence and self-assurance.
The Pretty Woman star said that ageing has nothing to do with acting, it is just a “cultural obsession”.
“I don’t spend a lot of time in front of the mirror. I’m pretty efficient in terms of looking at myself and, to be honest, I don’t think what you’re talking about is a business demand — it’s a cultural obsession,” she said.
