Most people who are fans of Julia Roberts think of her face as having always been more or less the same. Many people forget that at the beginning of her career, as is the case for many Hollywood actresses, Julia also went under the knife to make herself more attractive, and more marketable to fans. It is clear when examining before and after photos of Julia Roberts that she had a nose job early in her career.
On the September issue of Elle magazine, actress Julia Roberts talks a bit about her opinion on plastic surgery and botox: “It’s unfortunate that we live in such a panicked, dysmorphic society where women don’t even give themselves a chance to see what they’ll look like as older persons. I want to have some idea of what I’ll look like before I start cleaning the slates. I want my kids to know when I’m pissed, when I’m happy, and when I’m confounded. Your face tells a story… and it shouldn’t be a story about your drive to the doctor’s office.”
What Has Julia Roberts Had Done? Lip, Eye, Nose or Face Surgery Perhaps?
Throughout a long career in movies, Julia Roberts’ plastic surgery gossip has ranged far and wide.
Born October 28, 1967, Roberts is a viable acting sensation. She has been one of the more bankable actresses in Hollywood and though she has three children and she’s in her mid 40s now, she looks much younger than her years and her significant body of work might suggest.Julia Roberts before and after picture comparison.
She is known for her starring appearances in movies such as Notting Hill (1999) with Hugh Grant, as would-be lawyer Erin Brockovich (2000), Closer with Jude Law (2004) and, of course, Pretty Woman with Richard Gere in 1990.
Since Hollywood is rife with gossip about cosmetic surgeries and has been ever since the days of the silver screen when Marilyn Monroe herself got plastic surgery done to enhance her classic look, accusations of plastic surgery are only too common place. Debate and gossip even surrounds popular Hollywood icons such as Brad Pitt and George Clooney.
Older actresses always attract this sort of attention which is why there are similar questions asked about Jennifer Coolidge, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez or Meryl Streep but not younger stars like Katy Perry.
Recently Julia went out to the beach revealing a great bikini body. We don´t think that it is the result of plastic surgery because we don’t see any difference between this and older pictures, she has been thin always and the excess of skin that shows her belly it is most probably the result of the natural gain and subsequent weight loss after pregnancy rather than some procedures like classical liposuction or SmartLipo. There are no signs either from abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) a classical procedure after pregnancy.
Some rumors went out about her having a rhinoplasty and cosmetic dentistry but we don’t think so either, she looks pretty the same in all these pictures, but who knows, maybe she is taking some non invasive procedures such as chemical peelings to maintain her youthful look.
Being a great Hollywood beauty and sex symbol means there is a lot of pressure to look great all the time. Often for actresses, this means sacrificing their original, natural looks in the name of a more commercial, traditionally beautiful look. It has been shown that even Marilyn Monroe had a nose job to help jump-start her career!
What do you think? Has Hollywood forgotten how to celebrate natural beauty because it’s so common to have plastic surgery to get more traditionally beautiful looks these days? Did Julia Roberts make the right decision to go under the knife early in her career?
When asked in a magazine interview by Elle whether she’d had celebrity plastic surgery, Roberts denied that she had.
Instead the actress stated that she wanted to see what she would look like as an older woman and she decried the state of a nation when everyone was so determined to hold onto their youth when they didn’t even know what they would look like when they got older.
Additionally Julia Roberts went on to say, “I want my kids to know when I’m pissed, when I’m happy and when I’m confounded“, in reference to how plastic surgery can alter your face and the way you convey emotion. Other stars, such as Ashley Judd, clearly weren’t taking heed of her words.
As this video shows, she’s clearly not interested in any type of cosmetic or plastic surgery procedure.
Despite Julia Roberts protesting that she hasn’t had any cosmetic work done, there are still naysayers. Some people have speculated that Roberts has procedures done whenever the actress takes time off from work to be a mother.
Her more youthful and fresh-faced appearance doesn’t seem to jive with taking care of three kids, some say.
However, it’s all just words in the wind as far as some people have said. The actress sticks by her story that her good looks and graceful aging are a result of good genes, lots of work and personal diet, rather than any plastic surgery Julia Roberts has undergone.
