Hollywood legend Joan Collins has firmly shut the door on speculation surrounding her undergoing any cosmetic procedures, silencing the whispers with her signature grace and charm.

With a career spanning decades, Collins remains an epitome of Hollywood glamour and sophistication. Her numerous film and television roles have solidified her status as an enduring symbol of beauty and elegance.

However, as her age-defying looks continue to baffle admirers and critics alike, the actress has often found herself at the centre of cosmetic surgery rumours.

In a recent interview with The Guardian, Collins addressed the persistent suggestions that she had gone under the knife, emphatically stating, “I’ve had nothing done. I couldn’t do all that”.

“First of all, I’m needle-phobic. It was my mother who told me to moisturise and use night cream. I told my two girls and both of them have fabulous skin. And stay out of the sun,” she told the publication.

While revealing the secrets to her ageless visage, Collins also recently shared her secret to her happy marriage with her husband Percy Gibson whom she married in 2002.

“Percy and I became really good friends first,” she told The Mirror in a separate interview.

“So we had this connection. We really knew each other. And separate ­bathrooms is key! Although we are very lucky. I know that’s not something everyone can have.

“He has his office area and I have mine. I’ll spend time in mine writing or phoning my friends. And he’ll be working, looking after our three properties.

“Then we’ll do something together. Like any couple we have our ups and downs. We do occasionally argue – it’s normally when we’re working together.”

Between shutting down plastic surgery rumours and offering sage words of wisdom for a harmonious marriage, Collins recently took a stand against the ever-growing tide of cancel culture, highlighting its negative impact on her social life.

While cancel culture has had a profound impact on the entertainment industry, it is the effect on the parties she frequents that has particularly irked Collins.

The 90-year-old passionately emphasised her opposition to the trend of woke culture in a recent interview with Beat magazine.

“The parties I go to now are kind of dull,” she told the publication.

“They are red carpet things in which everybody does behave. If you don’t behave now you are going to get cancelled.”

With a career spanning over several decades, Collins has built a stellar legacy in the entertainment industry. She rose to fame in the 1950s and 1960s, starring in a string of successful films, including The Girl in the Red Velvet Swing and The Stud. However, it was her iconic role as the glamorous and conniving Alexis Carrington in the hit television series Dynasty that catapulted her to global stardom.

Throughout her career, she has received numerous accolades, including a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Television Series and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Beyond her acting prowess, Collins is also an accomplished author, philanthropist, and advocate for various charitable causes.
