Los Angeles: Actress Cate Blanchett says she is scared of cosmetic procedures and insists she will not be getting Botox anytime soon.

"I'm not sitting on a soapbox telling women what they should and shouldn't do," a website  quoted the 42-year-old as saying.

"I just know what works for me. I'd be too frightened about what it means long-term. Looking at women in their 20s doing this stuff (botox), in the end all you see is the work. It doesn't fill me with admiration; it fills me with pity," she said.
