    Default Ellen Barkin's treatments

    What her friend Susan Sarandon told her about being an actor and looking older: "She said, 'They'll always need women to play people's mothers. Then those of us who don't have plastic surgery will have jobs.'"

    Who she wants to resemble at 60: "My mother."

    Actresses whose looks she admires: "Helen Mirren, Judi Dench, Meryl Streep, Annette Bening, all those girls who don't play around with their faces."

    In her purse:

    There's no makeup in there? "No, I usually don't wear it. On a regular day, I curl my lashes with a Shu Uemura curler and apply lots of moisturizer. If I'm going out to lunch, I'll use a black Maybelline waterproof mascara—my eyes tear—and maybe a little Chantecaille concealer and Rosebud Salve. No blush because my cheeks are pink enough."

    Just a few of the things she does in bed: "I sleep a lot—about nine hours every night. I always read or watch movies till about 2 a.m. If I'm alone, I might apply a hydrating mask before I get into bed. Sometimes after I shampoo, I'll put Kérastase conditioner on my wet hair and sleep with it like that."

    What she never uses on her face: "Acids. I used Retin-A for about 10 years. But now I see Cristina Radu, a facialist in Los Angeles, every six weeks. She took me off all acidic products. (Radu believes that acids make the skin overly sensitive and irritated, and should be used only occasionally.) Now I use a gentle scrub twice a day for exfoliation, and very rich moisturizers in the Cellcosmet skincare line."

    Oh...actually...except once every two weeks... "I use Dr. Brandt [peeling system] Laser A-Peel, which, now that I think of it, has acids in it."

    What she tried once and will never, ever do again: "Botox. I don't like the way it makes people look. Too many people go overboard, and for an actress, that's deadly. It keeps you from being able to have expressions. Some actresses who used to have a beautiful smile have this weird kind of oval thing they do with their mouths instead. They can't frown anymore, either. They look like they've lost their minds."

    Why she hasn't had a facelift: "I didn't get my nose fixed; my whole face is crooked. Any plastic surgeon would look at me and try to even it out, and to do that he'd have to change everything, straighten my nose, make my eyes rounder. I don't want to do that!"

    What she would like to have if she knew how to get it: "Just a tighter version of my face."

    One of the ways she's trying to get it now: "Thermage [a radiofrequency treatment that's used to tighten skin and encourage the growth of collagen]. I've been having it three times a year for the past three years."

    What she thinks it's doing for her: "Really, I don't know. And it's painful—like burning-hot elastic bands snapping against my face. But I keep doing it."

    Wait, there's more: "I also have Fraxel [a laser treatment that's used to improve skin texture]. It doesn't hurt, there's hardly any downtime, and I've seen a huge difference in my skin."

    Oh, and more: "And every time I have Fraxel, I also have a peel."

    Oops, and more: "I've used a filler. But I have it done only here and there, not all over my face. People are having fillers injected into their jaws; they look like squirrels."

    So that's it, right? "For now. I'd never say I'll never have a facelift, but I'm way too scared of looking like a different person. I have no philosophical or political position on plastic surgery; I just don't want to look crazy. And I don't like not being able to tell how old someone is: It's creepy."

    I think she may also use Carita Star Line Products.

    Carita


    Moisturizer is $270! Yee haa.

    I think Ellen has had a lot more than that done- maybe not to her face but her body. Remember her tits in Oceans 13 (or whatever version it was) when Matt Damon seduced her? They were standing on their own.

    She has always been open about what she has had done to her face. She's fortunate that her face is very round and she has always had big cheeks- that shape holds up well when the face ages.

    Here's the 35-year-old back in 1990 (left) -- and 20 years later, the 55-year-old at an event in NYC this week (right).

    well she's got the same wonky nose and hooded eyes she's always had but i don't really see signs of actual surgery. but fillers (face and lips) and peels for sure. and probably botox, but not excessive. in the pic taken during her divorce she's not wearing as much make up as in the 2010 pic you posted, and the pic is taken from a more unflattering angle.

    her face looks like she's put weight on after the divorce, but whether that is real fat or fillers I dunno.

    "A filler here and there" to me counts as having work done: it might be a very mild kind of treatment, but you are still not 100% natural.

    She looks good in that 2010 shot to me. She's got a great haircut and quality grooming on the eyebrows. Beyond that I don't see a lot of obvious stuff. Like sput said, fillers and botox and such.

    She's got a weird face, but there's something really pretty about it. Maybe it's her expressions.

    agree. i always thought she was very attractive. and minus the bad fake tits, she's held up well.

    i think actresses that weren't 'great' beauties do better aging because they don't put all their worth in their looks and then mess themselves up trying to preserve something they can't stop the loss of (youth).

    ellen was, and still is pretty, but maybe not a great beauty by hollywood standards. she should just keep doing what she's doing and let herself age naturally with minimal help. (eg no chin, cheek, lip freak out shit)

    imagine the meltdown one must have if they have always been valued for their beauty, not their great acting capabilities, or intelligence. and it's starting younger and younger now, people screwing themselves up in their twenties even.

    I like her. I especially liked her looks around the time that the movie "Switch" (with Mel Gibson) was made.

    Yes, there was a mid-period (Sea of Love era) when she looked great.
