Former Knots Landing vixen Donna Mills, who played a plastic surgery addict on Nip/Tuck earlier this year, is not a fan of having a major overhaul in real life.

"I think there's too much," Donna,67, told OK! about Hollywood plastic surgery. "I think a little bit here and there is good but when they keep going and going and going, it's just not a good idea.  It just gets to look like plastic surgery.  Like Joan Rivers kids about it.  There are others who have done it who can't kid about it."

On Nip/Tuck, Donna played a character based on Joceyln Wildenstein, the "Cat Woman" famed for her over the top plastic surgery.

As for aging Hollywood actresses who go under the knife she says, "I wish that they wouldn't because you can't look 20 again and you shouldn't and if you try it, it just looks wrong."

Mills was promoting her upcoming Hallmark Channel TV movie, Ladies of the House, at the Television Critics Association event in Beverly Hills on Tuesday.

The still-gorgeous star says she avoids frequent trips to the plastic surgeon's office by following a sugar-free diet, playing tennis and enjoying life with her adopted daughter Chloe,13.

Mills stepped out of the spotlight for years to raise her daughter and says of her choice, "I'm really glad I did my career and achieved a lot first.  If I'd had a child then, it would have been a struggle.  Now being a mother is the most wonderful thing. I can be there whenever she needs me."

She continues, "We like shopping.  It's fun to take her around and show her places.  She wears a lot of my clothes but now I'm getting her hand-me-downs because she's outgrown her clothes and is way taller than me."

Donna, whose portrayal of Abby Ewing thrilled nighttime soap fans on Knots Landing in the 1980s, has never married and has no plans to walk down the aisle with long time boyfriend actor Larry Gilman,58.

"Why chance ruining a good thing? Everything is hunky dory," she told OK!. "We're perfectly happy and there's no need."
