Robert De Niro Asks Aging Stars to Shun Cosmetic Surgery

Picking Meryl Streep as the example, the Capitan Shakespeare of 'Stardust' urges older stars to snub cosmetic surgery and accept their wrinkle as a natural thing of getting old.
Robert De Niro

has called on his contemporaries to accept the aging process - and commends for shunning cosmetic surgery. The legendary "Taxi Driver" 's actor is famous for his rugged features, and insists he would never contemplate going under the knife to rid his face of wrinkles.

And he is urging older stars to follow Streep's lead - by refusing to resort to medical procedures to retain their youthful looks. He tells Britain's The Times magazine, "It's so transparent (surgery). If you're doing a younger part in a story, say 15, 20 years younger, the audience will accept that, and you can do it in a very real way."

"But to do it for yourself? I was reading something about Meryl Streep, and Meryl was describing how she doesn't do any of that stuff, and that's great. Getting old is a natural thing. And you'd better embrace it, 'cos you've got no choice".
