In July 2021, she also shut down botox-related rumors — as well as the assumption that most women in Hollywood get injections — during an interview with The Sunday Times.

“I didn’t have any,” she said. “I’m not against people who have it. [But] I get angry. It’s kind of a given that I got it, which I literally don’t.”

“I’m afraid of paralyzing my face,” the London native continued. “My mum’s voice is in my head, very loud, all the time. My mum wouldn’t even get a facial, she’s wary of something like that and looks radiant and amazing. I know if I had him do Botox, I’d be the one with the droopy eye, and my mom would be like, ‘I told you! See? You should never do that.'”
