5 surprising celebrities who have gone under the knife
Celebrities are pressured to look a certain way as they are constantly in the public eye and have to conform with the latest trends from fashion to the latest cosmetic procedures, with many of our favourite stars undergoing procedures. Some are vocal about it, most recently Kaley Cuoco, but there are also many celebrities who keep their cosmetic procedures to themselves.
Below you will find five of your favourite stars who have had cosmetic procedures:
Veteran movie star Sly, best known for his roles in Rambo and Rocky went under the knife for medical purposes to fix the left side of his face after a birth defect destroyed the nerves in that side of his face, undergoing a facelift to counteract it.
“People see this scar, and think I’ve had a facelift. What they don’t notice is that I don’t have a scar over here by my right ear. What do they think? That I could only afford to have half of it done? Sure. Why not do it? You have body work done on your car,” Sly said.
The pint-sized star of US show ‘Modern Family’ underwent a breast reduction back in 2015 and has been very open about it. She even garnered praise when she wore a dress that showed of her scars on the red carpet.
Speaking in a magazine interview, Ariel said:
“It really did happen overnight, I remember being in my sister’s wedding and being so flat and thinking, ‘I just wish I would grow boobs!’ and then overnight I did. But then they kept growing and growing and growing and it didn’t seem like they were going to stop. A few of my cousins have had breast reductions,” she told the magazine “so it wasn’t a shock when I decided to get one.”
Best known for her role as the kooky Phoebe in ‘Friends’ the actress went under the knife at a young age, having a rhinoplasty procedure at 16.
“That was life altering, I went from, in my mind, hideous, to not hideous. I did it the summer before going to a new high school. So there were plenty of people who wouldn’t know how hideous I looked before. That was a good, good, good change.”
Jamie Lee Curtis
Hollywood legend Jamie Lee Curtis recently revealed in an interview with The Telegraph that she had gone under the knife, which may come as a surprise to some as she is known as one of the few Hollywood actresses to revel in her grey hair.
Revealing to the newspaper:
“I’ve had a little plastic surgery. I’ve had a little lipo. I’ve had a little Botox. Ten years ago before anybody did that, I had fat taken from underneath my eyes because I was on a movie and I was puffy. I remember the cameraman saying: ‘I can’t shoot her now.’ I remember being mortified.”
The Hollywood legend Betty White is still appearing on our screens and recently has been part of the hugely successful ‘Comedy Central Roasts’. She has thoroughly embraced again gracefully so it may shock fans to know that she has had eyelid surgery in the past, saying in her book: “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature! But in 1976 I had my eyelids done, I scolded myself forever, but now I’m glad I did it.”
