Rachel Weisz is calling on movie bosses to ban Botox for actors, comparing the popular age-defying injections to illegal "steroids for sportsmen".
The Mummy star will turn 40 on Oscar night (07Mar10) but she still refuses to follow the Hollywood trend.
And Weisz is appealing for her fellow stars to stop the cosmetic procedure and start accepting their real age and wrinkles if they want to give award-winning performances.
She tells U.S. magazine Life & Style, "It should be banned for actors as steroids are for sportsmen... Acting is all about expression."

The oscar winning actress is back on the big screen with Peter Jackson's adaptation of Alice Sebold's novel The Lovely Bones, her first movie since The Brothers Bloom.

Agora is the next film up for release for Weisz, a Spanish historical drama film directed by Alejandro Amenábar.

She is currently filming The Whistleblower as well as having Unbound Captives, which will reunite her with Hugh Jackman, and Dirt Music in the pipeline.
