Vanessa dishes Botox

Thursday, March 6th, 2008

“I certainly do Botox, which I definitely think that almost every woman that I know has [done],” she said. “And it’s a miracle drug, no cutting, nothing –and I love it. But I also want to act too … so I don’t do it to freeze my face,”

Vanessa Williams

Vanessa Williams admitted to Barbara Walters that she uses Botox during her interview. Kudos to Vanessa for being bold enough to admit she uses Botox. Their are a lot of Hollywood stars that should be so upfront. The annual Oscar edition of The Barbara Walters Special also interviewed Harrison Ford, Miley Cyrus and Juno Academy Award nominee Ellen Page. During her interview Vanessa also discussed her surprise that Barbara even called her since she’s been working in the industry for over 20 years and how Ugly Betty has helped reinvigorate her career. Vanessa also discussed the fact the she misses being in a relationship and shared her experiences with racism while growing up.

Odd Couples

 Vanessa WilliamsVince Vaughn

Best Friends: Becki Newton and Michael Urie as their characters Amanda and Marc on Ugly Betty get us laughing every Thursday night with snarky humor. Not only are their characters great friends on the show they also have a close friendship in real life. In fact they even live in the same apartment building! In the Journal Gazette they share how they first met, discuss their Ugly Betty auditions and much more!

Odd Couple: Rumors are circulating that Vanessa Williams and Vince Vaughn are dating. The Wedding Crashers star was most famously linked to Brad Pitt ex Jennifer Aniston. Maybe the rumors are only a result of buzz related to his new Christmas movie Fred Claus which is set to open November 9. Vanessa Williams for her part hasn’t had much to say about the rumors. Her ex husband (former NBA player) Rick Fox has recently made several guest appearances in Ugly Betty.
