“I look in the mirror and I see 94 not 44” says Kylie Minogue, as she poses in a new *airbrushed* photoshoot
Judging by these pictures, Kylie Minogue hasn’t aged a day since she was 25 years old. The pint sized pop star has posed for these heavily airbrushed snaps in the latest issue of Elle Magazine where she’s also – ironically – done some talking about the effects of ageing.
The 44-year-old star – who still looks incredible (not that 44 is old mind) – admitted to the publication that sometimes she’s shocked when she catches sight of her visage in a mirror.
'I am not going to lie about this’ said kyles ‘there are lots of times I look in the mirror and I see that gravity has taken hold. Or suddenly see my face on a phone or on Skype and it’s like a Spielberg special effect and you just scream, "Who is that?".'
‘Sometimes I forget (I am 44) and I think, "I must get those hot pants out of retirement."
'And then some mornings I look in the mirror and I see 94 not 44. That is the reality before the make-up. And midriff tops are definitely out for good.'
Predictably Kylie is then asked whether she’d consider the surgery route to maintain her youthful appearance. The former Neighbours star actually admits that she wouldn’t rule it out:
‘I am not against surgery, I haven’t gone down that route yet, I don’t know whether I will but I am not against it. The only time it isn’t amazing is when it’s not done well or someone takes it too far.
‘I look at someone like Jane Fonda. I am a super-fan of hers. She doesn’t apologise (about her surgery) and she shouldn’t have to. We put make-up on every day, we tint, pluck, wax, we do anything to make ourselves look as good as we can and I think it’s pointless being hypocritical about something that if it’s done well can be really good’.
Sure, if you can airbrush yourself in photos – why not in real life, eh?
