Top 5 Stars Who Have Had Cosmetic Surgery : From Julia Chen to Cindy Crawford
The talk show host, Julia Chen has spilled beans about her decision to get a plastic surgery done. The talk show host told eonline.com that she went under the knife to look less of an Asian so that she could be accepted in the American community as a TV show host. Chen said that her secret dates back to when she was 25 years old and was working as a local news reporter in Dayton, Ohio.
"I asked my news director [if] over the holidays, if anchors want to take vacations, I could fill in. And he said, 'You will never be on this anchor desk, because you're Chinese". Chen revealed in a shocking statement.
Chen's reason for getting a plastic surgery done (she got her eyes reconstructed) is heart wrenching and is an alarming indicator of a racial bias. Just like Chen there have been many stars that have gone under the knife for various other reasons. Let's take look at those celebs:
Courtney Cox: Cox has already confessed that she has gone for a face lift to make her comeback with 'Cougar town'. Back in 2013 the Friend's star was even caught with a puffy face after a surgical procedure. Cox gets Botox injected on a regular basis.
Madonna: There are strong rumors that Madonna has gone through various surgical procedures. In 2011 when she took the stage in London for a concert, just like Courtney Cox her face looked puffy and swollen.
Simon Cowell: The X-Factor judge has admitted that he uses Botox to keep away the wrinkles and on a recent occasion the media magnate was seen with a loose skin around the neck, giving rise to strong speculations about a cosmetic procedure.
Cindy Crawford: Crawford is a timeless beauty and she thinks there is nothing wrong in keeping her good looks intact till she is alive. The supermodel uses Botox, collagen and vitamin injections.
