Drew revealed she'd never had plastic surgery or fillers in her face. "I’ve never messed with my face,” she said, to which Curtis quipped: "I can tell!"

Drew continued: "I don’t want to fight nature. I'm raising two daughters, and we were raised in an industry where it was desired to drink off the fountain of youth, and I just never subscribed to it.
