Rachel Weisz and Kate Winslet have deemed themselves the keeping-it-real gurus. Each actress fights the war on Hollywood fakeness in their respective August Harper's Bazaars, Weisz in the U.K. and Winslet stateside.

Weisz, a 39-year-old British actress, believes SAG should make it illegal for actors to use Botox or something. "It should be banned for actors, as steroids are for sportsmen," she says. "Acting is all about expression; why would you want to iron out a frown?"

Meanwhile, fellow Brit Winslet echoes that thought in her interview...

"I have wrinkles here, which are very evident," says Winslet. "And I will particularly say when I look at movie posters, 'You guys have airbrushed my forehead. Please can you change it back?' I'd rather be the woman they're saying 'She's looking older' about than 'She's looking stoned.' "

It seems to be a genuine effort on both actresses' parts to assure everyone that it really is OK to age—you don't have to freeze your forehead or whatever the latest anti-aging trend is.

But it would be nice if they could back these statements up in magazines that didn't Photoshop away the alleged wrinkles these ladies love so much.
