Kristin Davis is opening up about the skepticism she faces about having cosmetic work, including fillers.
The ‘Sex and the City’ and ‘And Just Like That’ star, who plays the notoriously girly and traditional Charlotte in both the original series and the revival, said she’s done some work – some say went well and others did not. .
“I was super excited not to have my sidelines,” Davis, 58, told The Telegraph in a profile ahead of Season 2 of “And Just Like That,” which is set to air June 23 on Max.
She started with Botox in her forehead: “But I didn’t do anything else for a long time.”
Lip fillers, she said, proved problematic in more ways than one.
“Nobody told me it didn’t look good for a very long time. But luckily I have good friends who said eventually,” Davis said. “The thing is, you don’t smile at yourself in the mirror. Who smiles at themselves in the mirror? Crazy people.”
Cosmetic work has become increasingly popular in the age of social media as unrealistic beauty standards continue to circulate. And trends have emerged to highlight procedures, which isn’t necessarily a good thing, experts say.
“I had to have them disbanded and I was ridiculed relentlessly,” she said. “And I shed tears about it. It’s very stressful.”
Now, she says, she’s not getting charges. “It’s bullshit. I can’t go on. I don’t have time. You trust the doctors (but) people blame us personally when it goes wrong – (like) I’m sticking a needle in myself in the face.”

The work she did was constantly compared to her younger version, she said.
“It’s hard to be confronted with your younger self all the time,” she said. “And it’s a challenge to remember that you don’t have to look like that.”
Potential risks and side effects of Botox include swelling, superficial skin discoloration, and sagging. For fillers, infection, filler migration and nodules or lumps are among the risks.
In the trailer for the second season of Max’s “Sex and the City” series, “And Just Like That,” fans will see some familiar faces beyond Davis and co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker and Cynthia Nixon .
Aidan, played by John Corbett, is back in Carrie’s (Parker) life after not being seen in the “SATC” universe since 2010’s second feature. Although Corbett teased he might be involved in Season 1, Carrie’s hunky ex-furniture designer never made an appearance. But that all changed in the new trailer with a brief glimpse of Aidan in the closing seconds.
Kim Cattrall, who previously said a return to the show was “a no for me,” is also set to reprise her role as Samantha Jones, although no further details about her involvement have been shared.
Elsewhere in the life of Carrie, Charlotte (Kirstin Davis) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon)? Charlotte worries about a “MILF” list at her daughter’s school, Miranda settles into her relationship with Che (Sara Ramirez), and Carrie explores casual sex to get over her grief for her husband John/Mr. Big (Chris Noth) who shockingly died in “It” Season 1.
