Virginia Madsen and her openness about Botox

I started talking about it quite innocently. An interviewer was criticizing an actress ó who shall remain nameless ó for having a frozen face.
And this person said, “You’re so natural, you would never use Botox.”
I was just being honest. And the word got out there.
Allergan came to me and asked if I would be a spokesperson.
I said no, I can’t just say I use this like I use haircolor. And they said, “No, we want you to talk about the way you use it.” So it’s a safety campaign.
I chose a certified plastic surgeon. There’s really an artistry to how these products are administered.
A lot of men come up to me. I get to talk to a lot of men, which is great (laughs). They’re much more shy about talking about it. A man wants to have an edge in the workplace (and is thinking about Botox) … Who do they ask? They can’t talk to their friends about it. They’re embarrassed. Because God forbid a man do something cosmetically to make himself look better.
I wish Botox would get a male spokesperson. I don’t want men doing it secretly.
I was on this radio talk show in New York. The host, this super macho man, told me this story that he went to a Botox party and got really drunk (and injected). And his face drooped. He found out later that it wasn’t Botox Cosmetic. It took a couple of months (for the drooping) to go away.
