Veteran actress Ellen Barkin is sick of ageing Hollywood stars tweaking their appearance with visits to cosmetic surgeons.

The SEA OF LOVE star was happy to expose her body on screen when she was younger - but now she has hit 50 she prefers to keep her flesh covered up.

She tells PAGESIX.COM, "I cannot bear what my generation of actresses are doing to their faces. Enough already. Thank God for the Europeans and their very different sense of what is appealing.

"And it's not only the rampant surgery. I want to know why these women dress that way. Hey, I still have a good body, but I'm 50 years old, and everybody got to look at it when I was younger and now is not the time for them to look at it!"
