Amanda Peet: 'I'm Being Pushed Out By Stars Like Alicia Vikander'


Amanda Peet Lena Dunham Alicia Vikander

In an essay titled Never Crossing The Botox Rubicon for Lena Dunham's LENNY newsletter, the actress explains that while she cares about her looks, she is too scared to cross the line into Botox and fillers.

Amanda, whose show Togetherness was recently cancelled, fears her advancing years are making it harder for her to gain employment as an actress.

She claims she was recently told that she was ineligible for a movie because she wasn't "current" enough, and the consequence of ageing gracefully is being pushed out of roles by actresses like Ex MAChina star Alicia Vikander, 27.

Amanda Peet

The 2012 star is not a fan of Botox and admits she is fearful of injecting anything into her face.

"I've never gotten Botox or fillers," she told newly-engaged Maria Menounos on her U.S. radio show. "I've never done anything to my face that's invasive."

Amanda Peet Wrote New Book To Explain Her Jewish Stance On Christmas To Her Kids


Amanda Peet

The Something's Gotta Give star and her Game of Thrones co-creator husband David Benioff were raised Jewish, while her father was a Quaker, so they agreed not to celebrate the Christian holiday.

But when their children started to ask questions about Christmas, Peet thought it would be a good idea to write a book that would help them understand.

"My kids started asking me, 'Why don't we have any decorations on our house? Why don't we have a Christmas tree? Why isn't Santa coming to our house?'" she says. "I had to explain, 'Well, you're Jewish', but that's sort of as far as we got. So I wrote a book about this issue, where some kids don't celebrate Christmas and other cultures and religions don't observe this holiday."

Kristen Bell Joins The Pro-vaccination Celebrity Mums After Studying The Facts


Kristen Bell Jenny McCarthy Amanda Peet Dax Shepard

As stars mums like Jenny McCarthy continue to fight against vaccinations, claiming medical research suggests their kids could be at risk from serious illness, mother of two Bell has joined Amanda Peet and those that are for inoculation, because she believes it's her responsibility to make sure all kids are not put at risk by a decision she and her husband Dax Shepard have made.

She tells Good Housekeeping magazine, "I thought I would be anti-vaccination before I had kids. I'm very crunchy (earthy), and happily so. But there is a lot of scientific, proven information out there that shows why vaccinations are necessary.

"Kids with autoimmune diseases, kids who are receiving cancer treatments - they can't be vaccinated because their immune systems (can't handle it). If your kid has leukaemia, he can't get vaccinations; if he then goes to school with my kid and I chose not to give my kid vaccinations, I'm putting your kid at risk. To me, that's unacceptable.
