Red carpet visualKristin Scott Thomas has revealed she would consider cosmetic surgery as people ‘just don’t notice’ women of a certain age. The 53-year-old actor fears she will just ‘disappear’ now she has reached middle age – and would consider going under the knife because she feels like an ‘old ragbag’ next to younger co-stars.“I’m not talking about in a private setting, at a dinner party or anything. But when you’re walking down the street, you get bumped into, people slam doors in your face – they just don’t notice you,” she said. “Somehow, you just vanish. It’s a cliché, but men grow in gravitas as they get older, while women just disappear.” Scott Thomas, best known for The English Patient, for which she was Oscar-nominated, and Four Weddings and a Funeral, was speaking during a visit to Cannes for the premiere of her most recent film, Only God Forgives.
