London - Anjelica Huston has been revealed as the latest celebrity pillow face victim, after displaying suspiciously plump cheeks.

The 61-year-old actress showed off her new look as she took part in a panel to promote the second series of her hit show Smash in Pasadena, California, on Sunday.

And Anjelica’s incredibly smooth face had another unwanted effect as it highlighted the crêpey skin on her neck.

The raven-haired actress is no stranger to taking extreme measures in a bid to maintain a youthful appearance, and has admitted previously to having collagen injections to smooth things out.

However, Anjelica also said she had been put off some surgical procedures after a Botox experiment went wrong.

She explained: “I went to a doctor who said, ‘Angelica, we have this wonderful new thing, it’s called Botox’.

“He took a huge needle and plunged it into my third eye (forehead). The pain was something inexplicable. I gasped, I writhed and when I came to, I had a headache that lasted four days. A serious one.”

Anjelica’s new appearance was revealed as she and co-stars Megan Hilty and Katharine McPhee took part in a Smash panel discussion before the February 5 premiere of the second season in the US.

The programme’s new show runner, Josh Safran, promised viewers that the upcoming series was sure to be as exciting as the first – with a few twists.

He said: “The stuff that you love from last year is still there, and the stuff that people thought maybe went off at tangents, we’ve looked at. Maybe bigger, more music. Maybe younger in regards to the new cast members.

“There was never anything that I outright didn’t like.

“I just thought season one was interesting to watch.

“It was somebody else’s world. It was fun to be an audience member and then come in and put my ideas in.” – Daily Mail

l Season One of Smash can be seen on M-Net Series on DStv.
