When you look like scrappy American Idol contestant Sanjaya Malakar, why would you change your appearance?

Such is the mindset of Halle Berry, who says she’s avoided plastic surgery so far — though she’s not against it down the line.

“No, I haven’t [had any],” the 40-year-old Oscar winner tells Reader’s Digest for its April issue. “But that’s one thing I’ll never say never about, because I don’t know.”

Still, she does hope to “evolve as a person who realizes it’s really not about my physical appearance and not be drawn to that seductive knife.”

Sounds like something Ashlee Simpson could learn.

This is not the first time Berry has discussed the issue of appearance. At a London press conference back in 2004, she said:

“Being thought of as a beautiful woman has spared me nothing in life. No heartache, no trouble. Love has been difficult. Beauty is essentially meaningless and it is always transitory.”

Well, sure. But tell that to Keeley Hazell.

Berry also revealed that she once didn’t speak to her mother for a year-and-a-halt after her mom refused to send money when the actress was nearly broke.

“It was devastating because she had never said no to me for anything,” says Berry. “I became totally self-sufficient. I vowed never to ask my mother or anybody for anything, ever. And I didn’t.”

She also didn’t comment on our comparison of her and Kim Kardashian. But we just hope we didn’t offend the lovely, talented star. Halle, not Kim. Obviously.

Finally, there is one thing Berry hasn’t yet attained that she still hopes for — a child. Might she go the Angelina Jolie route? It’s unclear, but …

“I hope that happens,” she says. “It’s late; I’ve waited a little too long. But I want to have children. Absolutely.”
