Teri Hatcher posts photos of her allegedly un-Botoxed face


Teri Hatcher is one of those people I tend to dislike on general principle. I have no real reason to dislike her, really. She hasn’t done anything – to my memory – that has really offended me. I guess I just think she’s kind of overrated as an actress and celebrity, plus I’ve always had a suspicion that she’s had extensive plastic surgery, although she’s always denied it. But seriously – she looks totally different now than she did in that James Bond movie. Weird.

Anyway, Teri is trying to win me over, I guess. She’s posted a few photos on Facebook and Twitter and made even stronger denials that she’s not doing Botox. She posted nine photos of herself in various stages of makeup-less frowny-faces, showing off her ability to emote. Do you buy it?

Teri Hatcher says she’s banned Botox. The 45-year-old actress posted a photo album on Facebook Monday night titled “Oy with the Botox!” featuring nine pics of herself wrinkling up her face.

Writes Hatcher, who is makeup free and dripping from the shower, “Thought about all those damn critics of my face. Love it or hate it, my face that is, [it's] no surgery, no implants… no matter what ‘they’ say. Decided I’d shoot myself in to reveal some truths about “beauty” and hope it makes you all easier on yourself.”

Hatcher admits she’s used fillers in the past. “Did I every toy with fillers or Botox over the years? Yes. Tell me does this look Botoxed to you? Yes I am alone in my bathroom naked in a towel on behalf of women everywhere trying to make a point. Women YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.”

In one photo of Hatcher furrowing her brow, she writes, “I can be mad, or confused, or sad and tired. Julia Roberts had that same vein in her forehead in Eat Pray Love. Proud of Julia for being a real woman on a real journey.”

Hatcher then offers recommendations on how to look younger in photos.

“Just me wanting to teach that all those glam versus trash pictures of celebs are about LIGHTING. It’s not makeup, it’s not surgery or Botox…. Flat front light in your face, especially sun setting [or] 4pm light blows out all wrinkles and imperfections. Overhead light [and] sun… casts shadows under your eye from your brow, making you look tired. Shoot all family reunion photos [with] the camera man… holding the camera a little higher than your eye line.”

She also Twitters a new Desperate Housewives promo shot of herself: “This is shot by Matthew Rolston with his wonderful lighting (and no Botox)… You create your own paradise or prison. Being happy inside is all that matters… See something in the mirror you love every day.”

Um… sure. Julia has the veiny forehead, as does La Jolie and Sarah Jessica Parker and lots of other women. The vein doesn’t bother me. On some people, it’s prominent, on others, not so much. What bothers me is that this is the most “emoting” Teri has done in years. If she’s about to scrunch up her forehead now, why wasn’t she doing it on Desperate Housewives? Hm? Oh, well. I’m not going to bash her, honestly. She’s trying to send out the right message, and honestly, she’s pretty brave for putting these photos out. So… well done, Teri.

    Oh my god, are those facial expressions?! The nerve of this woman!

  2. Erin says:

    She looks like an over cooked chicken wing…gross.

  3. j. ferber says:

    Wow, does she look emaciated! I know she was sexually abused by a family friend as a child, so maybe that led to her anorexia? Sandra Dee was sexually molested by her stepfather and she, too, had anorexia.

  4. Schnauzers!!! says:

    LOL I really can’t help but like her even more after this! Not that I disliked her before…this is just awesome.

  5. lucy2 says:

    Oh Teri, people stopped talking about you (and your face) a few years ago.

  6. mila says:

    I remember reading that botox injections for crowsfeet make forehead and temple veins much more prominent…but she looks cute here!

  7. mia says:

    I cant stand her, in fact I had to stop watching Desperate Housewives because she was so annoying. Its her ‘little cutesy act’ that is so irritating…I think? I dont think I have a particular reason either other than she’s just…well.. annoying.
    oh and she’s definitely had work done.

  8. Sns02215 says:

    Jeez! Forget about the botox…eat a sandwich (or 12) woman!!!

  9. Jennay says:

    @schnauzers: right on! wasn’t much of a fan but these make me like her. it think they are funny and she looks like a fun person!

  10. Praise St. Angie! says:

    I don’t think I have an opinion on her one way or the other.

    don’t like her or hate her…but those pics are HILARIOUS.

    enough to make me like her a LITTLE bit…

  11. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    OMG! Since when did she turn into Rhea Pearlman?

  12. Chickadees4me says:

    in the first pic she kind of looks like a angry Victoria Beckham lol

  13. Mari says:

    I think she’s sweet and genuine with a hint of insecurities just like everybody else.

  14. lrm says:

    The forehead vein to me is a SIGN of botox…i mean, la jolie has the strangest strong vein, and no wrinkles and i’ve noticed this about other actresses who have that ‘smooth forehead’-they also have that weird HUGE forehead vein.

    I have never seen this on women in my daily life. Ever. Or in pictures of people I know personally. I am sure it is related to fillers and/or botox or additives of some kind.

    Look at women who don’t do them-JA, Juliana Marguilles, Drew Barrymore…they dont have weird forehead lines.

  15. TQB says:

    “They’re real… and they’re FABULOUS!”

  16. hatsumomo says:

    LOL!!! Oh god, I couldnt stop laughing at the last pic were she is furrowing her brows and thinning her lips. Its soo funny! She strongly looks like my ex who pulled the exact same look when he was in a snit. Oh gosh!

  17. LindyLou says:

    Very brave of her to post the pics. And I have to say one thing – at least she has a sense of humour about herself.

  18. sapphire says:

    I call BS on the no make-up-liner and mascara are definitely there.

  19. Jessi says:

    I think the vein has to do with extreme lack of body fat.

  20. lola lola says:

    Protest too much is the phrase that comes to mind.

  21. She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named says:

    botox gets rid of forehead veins and smoothes everything out, I’ve always heard.

    Yeah, I buy this for like a second, now she’ll run out and get more tox and point to these as proof she’s all natural.

  22. Heaven-bound says:

    Her lip is very funny looking.. It reminds me of the Grinch. Lol

  23. aenflex says:

    PROPS to the famous actress for posting unflattering and very real pics of herself! HUGE props. Also props for her coming out about her sex abuse too. I wanted to dislike her but an unable to do so.

  24. Lem says:

    lrm: I have that vein, so does baby girl.

    i just don’t like her, just something about her. glad she can move her face now (whatever) but she’s still uber annoyinng

    HAH make-up free

  25. scorpiogal says:

    I have a big-ass forehead vein (and shiny skin)….I’ve never used botox. Geez, now I’m all self conscious about my vein. Seriously though- I love these pics. Funny and cute.

  26. Tia C says:

    She annoys me too. It’s the “little cutesy act,” as Mia said, and just the fact that yes, she looks TOTALLY different than she used to, yet claims she’s had no work done. Mmm-K.

    She may not be doing botox currently, but she has had other work done. She has virtually NO wrinkles and she’s 45! No work my ass. And she IS wearing makeup here.

    Don’t know why she did this anyway, lucy2 is right, no one is talking about her anymore. That was 5 years ago…

    The only thing that makes me like this effort of hers a little is that she hasn’t waxed her mustache.

  27. Sumodo1 says:

    I bow down to thee!

  28. Jess says:

    She looks like she could use a good shave.

  29. excuse me says:

    Botox or no, I cannot stand this woman. Who did she sleep with to get the lead on Desperate Housewives? All the other women are prettier by far, especially Eva Longoria.

  30. zippersgirl says:

    scorpiogal- I have the forehead vein too and never used botox or anything else. It seems to have become more pronounced as I age.

    As for Hatcher, never watched her in anything but she seems harmless enough.

  31. serena says:

    Don’t seems botoxed to me.

  32. freckles says:

    Just wanted to say that I’m 21 years old and whenever I’m really upset, happy, angry or if I’m upside down or leaning over I get a really, really prominent forehead vein right in the middle of my forehead from hairline to eyebrows. My sisters always tease me about it! And, obviously, I’ve never had Botox.

  33. ch says:

    this woman is weird
    she obviously had a bad nose job (her nostrils are very uneven)
    she used to be goodlooking because she had curves
    but the weird thing is, why did she took those pictures in a towell? couldn´t she just dress?
    i think she´s nuts
    maybe she gets to talk about this in a talkshow, but that´s about it

  34. jen says:

    Umm, not so make-up free – she has eye makeup on, lots of it…

  35. Monkey Bobo says:

    this woman looks like a sleestack from the original land of the lost

  36. Ruffian9 says:

    What the hell is going on here??

    I truly beliave that she’s mentally unbalanced.

  37. Kiska says:

    Pretty brave to post pics in such an unflattering setting. Have to wonder what long term effects fillers/botox have on the body.

  38. Crash2GO2 says:

    I never realized how long her upper lip is.

    I definitely think she would look better with 10 lbs on her…

  39. Arthur says:

    If she didn’t care what her critics say about her face then she wouldn’t post these photos. Just live your life your crazy person – don’t worry about what web bloggers are saying. You’re rich, you’ve lived your dream…. only to realize what most celebs realize – the dream wasn’t so great as you were only judged superficially and once the wrinkles started, so did the opportunities. Don’t hate the game.

  40. Leek says:

    Her credibility is at the reality tv level now. Plus, I would bet that she could be mistaken for Danielle Staub and no movie execs want that on their hands.

  41. Stickman says:

    Hey Hatsumono i happen to know your ex, and he’s a sexy beast, way sexier than this Terry Hatcher bird..

  42. Ellie says:

    so women are beautiful but only if they use fillers like her?

    nice try hatcher – you still fucked with your face

  43. eggy says:

    makeup-less my ass is right. she has so much damn makeup on in these, that claim is laughable.

  44. Truthzbetta says:

    Look at her mouth. There has to be some reason for it to look so strange.

    She looks like Danielle Staub, mouth and all, the NJ Housewife who kidnaps people. And had plastic surgery on air.

  45. lrm says:

    oops-well, i guess i’ve never met anyone who had a forehead line naturally…i assumed it had to be some sort of botox or fillers. literally, i have never, in 6 states and 4 countries of living and countless travels-seen a prominent forehead vein like this. Angelina Jolie has one, as do a few other celebs. It’s weird to me, that I would never see a person in the ‘real world’ with one….

  46. anon says:

    i have a forehead vein – nothing you can do, its just there, doing whatever veins do! i am also very fair which doesn’t help!

  47. chessie says:

    Big props to her… she has brass ones!

  48. raincoaster says:

    Maybe no botox, but plenty of eyelash extensions and eyeliner, plus it looks like lip injections. She’s got “smoker’s lips” which means there’s a sort of depression all around the edge. You can see a bit of a shadow of it in some of the pix.

  49. Shay says:

    She probably went off the Botox when she, like many celebs, realise that their other muscles compensate for the paralyzed muscles.
    People use Botox thinking it is preventative. Not.
    She is so thin/gaunt, I’m surprised she has any skin folds to frown with. Eek

  50. sparkle586 says:

    Yeah, like the other posters said — thats a whole lot of “natural” eyeliner and mascara/fake lashes she’s sporting there fresh out the shower.

  51. marge says:

    she’s definitely going to need a little ‘tox after this photo sesion

  52. Cleo says:

    So she quit using Botox to shoot these pictures. Since she’s been using it, it kept wrinkles from forming and there’s no way in hell she isn’t using injectibles. No freaking way.

    I’m very lucky because I have great skin for a 37 year old. I never went in the sun without sunscreen & have a mom and dad that look young for their age. I’m used Juverderm once and Botox once right before my wedding (and I’m glad I did) and there’s just no way she’s not using something in these pictures.

    If anything, these pictures make me dislike her more. Use Botox. Get plastic surgery. But don’t spit in my face and tell me that it’s raining. I have so much more respect for people that just don’t comment about it. There’s a way to use Botox and the like without looking like your face has been frozen or stretched beyond repair.

  53. fizXgirl3114 says:

    yeah I’m sorry, but she is very clearly wearing make up… at the very least, foundation and mascara… also, she looks like she’s using her entire life force to frown… it could be the taile nd of her botox treatments… but I think there have definitely been some. In either case, what would drive a grown woman to do this? Whether you have had work done or not is your business and you don’t really need to explain yourself to anyone :-/

  54. kim says:

    Seriously? this isnt April Fools day Teri. Who does she think she is kidding???? I havent seen many facxes as botoxed as hers!!!

  55. fun photo says:
