Real Beauty: Annette Bening and Julianne Moore in The Kids Are All Right

Honestly, I'm not against cosmetic work. I'm just against looking as though you bought an all-in package deal and got everything done all at once. Twice. I'm a bit distressed about Sela Ward's newish face (too puffy, and brows too arched, more than they were). I'm shocked at how Megan Fox ruined the great work she'd had up until the Jonah Hex red carpet photos. And don't even talk to me about that sad girl Heidi Montag.

So for me, watching The Kids Are All Right was a pleasure. I appreciated the story, and scruffy Mark Ruffalo who always seems a bit confused yet adorable, but I loved that beautiful Annette Bening and Julianne Moore let their wrinkles show and go through the whole film with so little makeup. I don't care whether or not either woman has had work done (although I do think Julianne's teeth could be a little whiter -- I'm sorry, I get distracted by not-white teeth every time I see them, and I feel bad about that). I love that you can't tell at all whether they've had Botox or fillers or lifts or implants.

Hmmm. I think I need a Whitestrip.
