Patricia Arquette: There's more to women than looks

Patricia Arquette feels she "reserves the right" to change her face if she wants to.

The 47-year-old actress is known for being relaxed about her looks, and with a youthful appearance and on-trend blonde locks it's no wonder she feels comfortable.

Body image is another area the star doesn't worry about and she puts this laidback mindset down to her family.

"My parents never talked about body image, what I was supposed to look like as a girl, and my mom didn't wear make-up at home; she didn't lead with her looks," Patricia explained to British Vogue. "I don't think society should brand that as our main commodity but nor do I think you should never dress-up!"

Her hassle-free outlook shows through the photoshoot accompanying the interview, in which she dresses down in a striped cut-out black and white top worn under a pair of dungarees. She does up the stakes a little though in a black blazer with drop earrings for one shot.

Patricia's smooth complexion isn't the result of Botox or other procedures, but the star feels if she did choose that option in the future she shouldn't be judged for it.

"I don't want to do anything to my face. But I also reserve the right to do that if I choose to, you know? And without apologising to a million strangers, because even having a conversation about, 'You don't look natural, you did something weird to your face,' we are making it about the way women look," she fumed. "It's none of your f**king business what they look like."
