"Ugly Betty" star Vanessa Williams is one of the few actresses who is outspoken about her use of Botox.

ActressVa_Mark_57819788_600 Vanessa got on the phone to talk about working with Allergan, the makers of Botox, and Dress for Success, a nonprofit organization that provides underprivileged women the necessary interview skills, fashion and beauty help to help them get back into the workforce.

(Listen to the phone interview above. Sorry, but there's a lag until she gets on the phone. So keep listening!)

Vanessa, 46, started using Botox when she turned 40 and continues to use it sparingly.

"Botox doesn't change the way you look," Vanessa explains. "It relaxes the muscles so you look refreshed."

But she admits that she's seen Botox used improperly. A lot. As have we all. The worst advertisements are the people who do it wrong, she believes.

"As an actress I want to have some expression," she explains and later confesses, "I go easy on the juice."

Her doctor? Raj Kanodia in L.A.

Now lets talk "Ugly Betty," the new looks and the Season 4 two-hour premiere on Oct. 9, 2009....
