"I'm not against doing little things": Julie Gayet talks about cosmetic surgery


The wife of François Hollande, on the poster of Like an actress, spoke about aging and cosmetic surgery.

In Sébastien Bailly's new film,

Like an actress

, she plays a fifty-year-old who decides to embody the different women that her husband, played by Benjamin Biolay, may desire, for fear that he will leave her.

A fantastic metamorphosis that allows Julie Gayet to address a topical theme: the aging of women in general and in the film industry in particular.

Kristin Scott Thomas: “As I get older, I find women with a lot more pleasure, even relief”

Invited to the program "La Bande Originale", presented by Nagui and Leïla Kaddour-Boudadi on France Inter, on March 16, the actress was asked to speak about the difference in treatment reserved for women and men.

And of this “injunction to be beautiful all our life”.

"Men can age, they get better with time, but we are told 'you are still beautiful for your age'".

To which Nagui who underlines "the incredible violence" of this sentence asks her if she has already heard it.

Which is obviously the case since Julie Gayet nods several times before continuing: “At the same time, I find that we age completely differently, that we have changed, that we can do lots of little things to stay … Me, I am not at all against the fact that

When Nagui asks her if she is talking about cosmetic surgery, she replies: “Yes, cosmetic surgery or a little descaling.

We do a thousand things today to stay young, we do barre on the ground, we no longer age in the same way as our grandparents.

Treatment or addiction

Faced with this response, the host objects: "Sorry, but it's not the same to say "I'm going to do Pilates or yoga to stay young" than "I'm going to have my nose redone, botox the forehead, the cheeks "...".

What the one who married François Hollande last June responds in nuance.

“We can do little things because we want to be in shape or beautiful.

[...] But it's when it becomes madness, and that's what the film is about, when it becomes an addiction, that is to say the inability to accept aging.

During the program, the actress also insists on the too low representation of women over 50 in the audiovisual landscape: “There is one in two women in society who are over 50 and on the screens, there are only 7%.

So it's not representative at all.

We are sent a society where women do not age.

How do you grow old in this world?

she wonders.

Once again, the question of injunctions arises.

And even if the last Oscar ceremony crowned two women over 50, Michelle Yeoh and Jamie Lee Curtis, there is still a long way to go.
