I\'m not interested in plastic surgery: Halle Berry

The actress in 1991, the year she was cast in Spike Lee's Jungle Fever and had her first leading role in Strictly Business

Halle Berry, famous for her beauty as well as her acting chops, Oscar-winner Halle Berry insisted Friday she's not interested in going under the plastic surgeon's knife in an effort to look younger.
But the 48-year-old actress said she still feels the pressure to alter her looks and claimed plastic surgery is pushed 'like crack' in Hollywood.
In a revealing interview with Yahoo! Beauty, the Monster's Ball star acknowledged, 'When you see everybody around you doing it, you have those moments when you think, "To stay alive in this business, do I need to do the same thing?'''
The Revlon spokesmodel said it's hard to stick to her guns and not have a little work done especially when people tell her it's something she ought to do.
'I won’t lie and tell you that those things don’t cross my mind because somebody is always suggesting it to me,' Berry said.
'You know if you just did a little bit of this and that, lift this up, then this would be a little bit better. It’s almost like crack that people are trying to push on you. That’s what I feel like,' she added.
The star of Swordfish and the X-Men series of movies, who is married to French actor Olivier Martinez, gave birth to their son Maceo in 2013.
She has a six-year-old daughter Nahla with ex-boyfriend French Canadian model Gabriel Aubrey.
'I just have kept reminding myself that beauty really is as beauty does, and it is not so much about my physical self,' Berry said in the interview Friday.
 'Aging is natural, and that’s going to happen to all of us.'
The actress, who was a Bond girl in 2002's Die Another Day, said she's like any other woman in her 40s, who relies on good beauty products to make her look better on off-days.
'Some days I have dark circles under my eyes, and I’m like, 'Where did that come from?' she told Yahoo! Beauty. 'Some days I notice, 'Oh, my God, I aged a little bit last night. It’s happening!''
'What I try to do is to take it all in stride — and look in my cupboard for products,' she said.
Berry, whose sci-fi drama series Extant has been picked up for a second season by CBS, did let slip, though, that she's not a fan of Valentine's Day.
She revealed Friday that she'd rather her husband surprised her on 'any random day in October' with a declaration of love and not do something special on February 14  'because the world tells you, ‘This is the day you’re supposed to profess your love.’'
