This decision was not easy to take but she did it for herself.
The actress revealed this news in a recent interview: “I recently had plastic surgery. It was a hard decision to make, and I decided if I’m going to do it, I’m going to tell the truth.
“I’m writing a book about aging, so I can’t write that book and not say I’ve had plastic surgery. And you know, I just decided it was for me – I don’t want to have bags under my eyes that make me look tired, and so forth and so on.”
She added: “I have, in my life, been obsessive about exercise, about most everything. But one of the good things that happens when you get older in everything comes into perspective.
“I have a new hip, I have a new knee and I’m going to soon be bionic. If I don’t stay active my body stops functioning.”
