French movie star Julie Delpy is so appalled by the rise in cosmetic surgery among actresses, she has developed a phobia of it.

The Broken Flowers actress hates the idea of women suffering to meet Hollywood ideals and admits the "alien" look of a Botox patient makes her feel physically ill.

The 35-year-old says, "It hurts me, you know? Even stuff like Botox, I notice it right away.

"They have a shiny flat forehead and look like an alien. The lips really terrify me, the upper lip that looks like it has been hit in the face.

"It gives me anxiety, but what can I do? The other day, I was at a party and there was a lip there and it was hurting me so much.

"It was obviously showing that I was disgusted. I just stared and looked kind of horrified."
