Olivia Colman has embraced anti-aging techniques as the years go by.

The Crown actress, 50, admitted to BBC Radio 2 host Vernon Kay just this week that when it comes to dealing with being 50 (and beyond) she's tackling skin concerns head-on: with Botox. In fact, she's had plenty of filler done already, she said.

The two of them realized they're the same age while in the middle of their interview, which Colman was doing for her new film Wicked Little Letters, alongside her costar Jessie Buckley. But Colman couldn't believe that she and Kay were both 50 and told him so. She thought she looked old enough to be his mother and asked him how much Botox he's had done. The host revealed he's had none done thus far and asked her what she's had done.

"Oh, I've had loads," she said of her Botox routine, and when Kay asked her if it hurts, she replied, "Yeah, it's needles in your face."

Plenty of people in Hollywood are getting more honest about their use of anti-aging practices these days, including Martha Stewart, 82, who recently opened up about not wanting to look her age.

In the season 2 premiere of her iHeartPodcasts' hit show, The Martha Stewart Podcast earlier this month, she sat down with her cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Dan Belkin to discuss her own procedures.

“Everybody is so interested when they see a selfie of me posted on the Internet," she said in the episode. "So many comments are about my face lift and who did it and when did I have it done and how much retouching is on the photograph, and I just want to set the record straight."

Throughout the conversation, Dr. Belkin breaks down the types of treatments he does on Stewart, including muscle-relaxing injections in her neck and jawline and the kind of fillers he has administered into her cheeks.

Stewart also admitted that having Botox on the upper part of her face hasn't always gone in her favor. “My eyebrows kind of go up in a V and that looks so unnatural,” she said.

Elsewhere in the conversation, Stewart, who credits Alastin tinted moisturizer as one of the top hero products in her rotation, even asked if she’s ever had skin tightening done before (she has). “I don't even know what I've had,” she said.

"We've done a little bit of skin tightening on you," Belkin said. "We've done a little ultrasound tightening I think, a long time ago. We did a little softwave, which is an ultrasound-based tightening device. And we've done a little bit of Ulthera, which is a great ultrasound-based skin tightening that works."

In conclusion, she shared her final thoughts on aging. “I don't think a lot about age, but I don't want to look my age at all. And that's why I really work hard at it,” she said, adding that she prioritizes exercise and keeps tabs on her diet in a healthy way.
