British actress Helen Baxendale has ruled out ever altering her image with cosmetic surgery or wrinkle-freezing Botox jabs.

The former Friends star has no plans to copy her Hollywood rivals by attempting to hold on to her youthful looks, insisting she doesn't want to set a bad example for her 15-year-old daughter Nell.

Baxendale tells Britain's Weekend magazine, "I don't like the idea of putting a deathly toxin inside my body. I don't want to look weird. I want to age the way that life makes you age, because there's beauty in autumn and winter and I think people forget that. Also, I wouldn't want my child to see that I considered being attractive synonymous with youth. For me, you have operations when you're ill."
