Halle Berry feels a lot of pressure to have plastic surgery.

The 48-year-old actress admits she is often encouraged to go under the knife to maintain her youthful appearance and claims cosmetic procedures are "like crack" in Hollywood.

She said: "It is pressure. When you see everybody around you doing it, you have those moments when you think, 'To stay alive in this business, do I need to do the same thing?' I won't lie and tell you that those things don't cross my mind, because somebody is always suggesting it to me. It's almost like crack that people are trying to push on you. That's what I feel like."

But the 'Extant' is determined to try to grow old gracefully.

She told Yahoo Beauty's Editor-in-Chief Bobbi Brown: "I just want to always look like myself, even if that's an older version of myself. I think when you do too much of that cosmetic stuff, you become somebody else in a way.

"I just have kept reminding myself that beauty really is as beauty does, and it is not so much about my physical self. Aging is natural, and that's going to happen to all of us."

The Oscar winner also looks up to older actress like Jane Fonda, 77, who she thinks is still very glamorous.

She said: "I don't know what she has or hasn't done, but she looks beautiful as she's going about her way."
