Playing EXCLUSIVE: Constance Zimmer on Looking Forward to Old Age: 'I Don't Want to Do Anything to My Face, Ever'

Constance Zimmer is not a fan of optional cosmetic surgery, as ET found out during a one-on-one sitdown at the UnREAL star's Los Angeles home.

"I would like to say, right here on Entertainment Tonight that I don't want to do anything to my face, ever," Zimmer, 46, tells ET's Nischelle Turner. "I would like to get old. I would like to play those characters that get old. I want to age."

Zimmer revealed that she's gotten more comfortable in her own skin as she's gotten older, and picked up a valuable lesson along the way.

"You just have to know that you're enough," she insists. "I'm never going to be Angelina Jolie. I'm Constance Zimmer, and I'm going to be the best Constance Zimmer I can ever be."

This is a piece of wisdom Zimmer will also try to pass down to her 8-year-old daughter, Colette. Zimmer admitted that acting isn't the first profession she would choose for her little girl, and she's happy to report that Colette hasn't been bit by the bug just yet.

"She did say to me one day, 'Mom, what if I don't want to be an actress?'" Zimmer recalls. "And I said, 'What do you mean?' She's like, 'Well, you know. Kids are supposed to follow in the footsteps of their parents. So is it OK if that's not what I want to do?' I said, 'Honestly, I would prefer that you don't.'"

For now, Colette's dream profession is "singing veterinarian," but she also wants to be "a makeup artist on the weekends."

"Whatever she wants to do, though, I've decided I'll support her," Zimmer clarifies. "I'm just not pushing her in any way whatsoever."

Colette is Zimmer's only child with her director husband, Russ Lamoureux. The couple wed in 2010, but their first meeting took years to come to fruition. Zimmer says a friend set them up on a blind date that apparently neither of them were head over heels about.

"It took six years, so it's not like I jumped on it the second she was like, 'Hey, I have this guy. I think he's going to be your next husband.' I was like, 'Alright. Not right now.'"

According to Zimmer, the wait was worth it.

"He is the cook in the family," she says. "He is kind of the everything. He's like the barista; he's the mixologist; he's the chef. I hit the jackpot with that guy."

The actress put it on herself, however, to bring holiday cheer to some lucky pals who attended her Vanessa Liane Jewelry trunk sale.

"This year I decided I was going to be like the poor man's Oprah," she says. "I can't give you a car, but I can give you a nice tote bag filled with some amazing things that I love."

Perhaps her most valuable gift was this piece of advice she says she would give her younger self or "any young girl."

"Just be proud of who you are," she says. "Be proud of who you are and know that you are unique and nobody can do what you can do and be who you are. Again, I always repeat it, but you are enough and don't try to be somebody else, and know that you're going to be OK."
