Interesting article on Access (the TV guide for DirecTV subscribers) that some stars are flat-out refusing to be in front of HD-cameras and how they show every crow's feet and blemish.

If that's the case, they had better also refuse to be in front of film cameras, including stills for magazines. Those are of higher resolution than HD video anyway.
