Julie Walters has hit out against teeth whitening after being left in agony by the treatment when trying to remove green tea stains.

The actress, who has previously condemned cosmetic surgery, said bleaching her teeth was so painful she halted the process after a few days.

Speaking ahead of the release of a programme on her life, the 64-year-old said she was forced to consider teeth whitening after drinking green tea for 20 years.

‘I drink green tea and quite honestly if you drink tea all your life, which I’ve drunk now for nearly 20 years, your teeth do begin to look a bit like wood,’ Ms Walters said.

‘The dentist gave me something that you put on. It did get rid of the coffee stains, but then I thought, I can’t do this anymore – it’s too painful.’

The actress, whose career is being honoured in a BBC programme tonight, added while she has never seen the appeal of image-conscious Hollywood where women are increasingly trying to look younger.

‘I’m not putting down anybody who has (cosmetic surgery), I just quite like to think I can grow old and it’s fine.

‘If people don’t like me because I have wrinkles then I don’t particularly want to be with them either,’ the actress told the Times.
