I’ve been wondering for years why people get such elaborate plastic surgery. There are so many botched jobs. Wouldn’t you think these movie stars would check into their surgeons a little more carefully?
Today on Oprah, the show was about aging. It started out with Teri Hatcher who showed herself make up free. She said in the past she did get Botox but hasn’t gotten it in years.
Then they talked to Cybill Shepard and Linda Evans. Cybill Shepard talked about being young and beautiful and growing up in front of the camera. She said all the while she was growing up, she never felt pretty. She felt she needed to act outrages in order to stand out and bring attention to herself. She has had very minor things done and to me, looks beautiful.
Then Linda Evans came on and she must have “been the one” who’s had very dramatic stuff done. She said she got her plastic surgery because she was with a much younger man and she wanted to “fit in” to his life better. She looks awful in my opinion. Here’s a before and after of her.
Here is also someone who I thought was really good looking before plastic surgery and simply awful after. Kenny Rogers.
Both Linda Evans and Cybill Shepard said they grew up thinking they weren’t pretty or beautiful. I wonder how one thinks that? Surely they can see in the mirror. It’s got to be something way down deep inside and if that’s the case, no matter what they do, won’t they always feel that way?
The other thing is all this is focusing on is how one looks. I’m all for someone fixing their nose or boobs or making “slight” alterations but some of these people don’t look anything like what they used to. Take Jennifer Gray who just happens to be on Dancing With The Stars this season. Here are her before and after shots and in her case, her surgery cost her, her career. Nobody knew who she was afterward Dirty Dancing. Here’s also what she had to say about it and there are other links to see other people’s surgeries.
I think one of the things that makes me feel the worst is that Linda Evans said she was glad she had this surgery. That she feels like she looks good now. I think she was one of the most beautiful women of our time before surgery.
Do you think any of these people look better afterward? I just guess I never realized how important self esteem is. Apparently none of these people had any and it sounds like these kinds of things are addictive. Some of these people have gone way too far and keep trying that “one more thing” and they end up looking plastic and fake looking.
Other than dying my gray hair, I plan to age gracefully. How about you? How far would you go? Do you think any of these people look better after they had their surgery?
