Actress Sarah Jessica Parker has quashed reports she's undergone cosmetic procedures to help her achieve a youthful appearance.

The former SEX AND THE CITY star is repulsed by the increasing number of female celebrities who are enlisting chemical and surgical means to freshen up their faces, especially when she's sitting next to an older woman who looks younger than her.

And she's urging Hollywood to stamp out the cosmetic surgery "epidemic" sweeping the glitzy movie town.

She says, "I've had no Botox, no collagen, nothing. I have lines, but if some of my peers weren't having things done, I wouldn't think about it.

"It's hard sitting in a room with people who are younger and older than me who don't have any lines. It's like an epidemic."
