No more plastic surgery

jane_fondaThe argument for and against plastic surgery is hotting up as two Hollywood celebrities speak out against plastic surgery as a means of looking younger.

According to Jane Fonda she and Sally Field have made a “pact” not to go for any more plastic surgery in the quest to look younger.

Fonda – now in her 70’s – said she would prefer to age gracefully and not fight the natural aging process. “I have chosen not to have any more plastic surgery. Sally Field and I have kind of made a pact about that.”

Fonda is no stranger to plastic surgery famously having breast implants in her 50’s. May be for her it’s a question of drawing the line and finally accepting that aging is inevitable. Whatever her motivation she now says she prefers to be a positive role model for older women.

Whilst she doesn’t criticize other actresses for having work done – she must feel that enough is enough.

She wants her face to be mobile, human and recognizable rather than the strange stretched faces that can result from too much surgical intervention.

Fonda and Field have now officially joined the line of Hollywood celebrities who have publicly come out against plastic surgery and spoken up for “natural” aging or healthy aging through the best lifestyle choices. Of course some of the celebrities now speaking out against plastic surgery have been clients of the best Hollywood cosmetic surgeons in the past.

“It’s really hard, especially if you’re a public person. But I want to give a face to aging.”

British actress Jacqueline Bisset – in her 60’s – spoke out very strongly against plastic surgery in a recent article, saying that she thought ‘women who had plastic surgery looked like freaks’.

Still young looking Andie MacDowell – from a slightly younger generation than Bisset or Fonda – has also been quite forthright in her views against plastic surgery preferring to put her faith in a good diet, exercise and, of course – great anti aging skin care.

Jane Seymour takes a similar line despite admitting to having had plastic surgery to reduce the bags under her eyes. The British actress who is in her 50’s has said she is against plastic surgery for professional reasons as much as anything, believing that the surgery takes away mobility and expressiveness in the face.

“When I see people on television and nothing is moving and their eyebrows are up near the corner of their head I think, ‘How can they do this? They’re destroying their expression”

Interestingly there seems to be more tolerance of plastic surgery among the younger celebrities and probably more so in the US than the UK and Europe. Despite this several high profile young celebrities have spoken out against surgery including: Kate Winslet, Kate Beckinsale and Diane Lane.

It’s good to see that the topic is now up for public debate and that even Hollywood celebrities are beginning to feel they have nothing to lose by talking openly about the pros and cons of plastic surgery.

  1. Is that why Jane Fonda just recently had a facelift…because she is giving up plastic surgery?

    • Hi Sam – Jane Fonda’s recent decision to get plastic surgery did make her earlier pronouncements sound like hypocrisy. I wrote the article earlier obviously…which just goes to show never say never. I thought she looked better before she had her recent surgery by the way.
