Lisa Kudrow may have predicted having plastic surgery in an interview a few years back. Although she hasn’t been under the knife, or even used injectables like Botox, for anti aging procedures, she once told a magazine that she’ll have plastic surgery when she’s 60.
50-year old Lisa Kudrow was 46 when she told OK Magazine that she’ll have plastic surgery when she’s 60 or 70 and now that she’s closer to her goal age, she has us wondering if she’ll change her mind or not.
“I mean, look, time marches on. You can’t look 30 when you’re not,” she told New York Magazine. “I don’t even know what to say about it. [Cosmetic surgery] makes me nervous, that stuff.”
“But still, you want to look good. So it’s sometimes just hard to watch yourself, like, ‘Oh god, what’s happening to me?’ There’s a line between looking like yourself and looking like a character from a Batman movie.”
Refusing cosmetic surgery has had other benefits for the 46-year-old. “In Cougar Town I played a dermatologist, and so the only note I had on the script was that I have to say that I haven’t had any work done — it’s too noticeable not to mention. Boy, I really hope I can put it off until I’m 60 or 70. I’ll keep you posted.”
Unlike her Cougartown costar, Courteney Cox, who has had so much Botox and injectables that she has actually been compared to a certain character from the Batman comic, Lisa does look to be aging naturally. Her eyes have crinkles around the corners and her long neck has horizontal lines, hallmarks of aging without the benefit of plastic surgery.
If Lisa does opt for plastic surgery, she may find it life changing, as she did when she finally revealed her childhood nose job last year.
The former Friends star was long Friends star suspected of having had a nose job before hitting the big time. But nobody could prove it because there don’t seem to be a lot of childhood photos of Lisa lurking online.
Yet the truth came out when Lisa revealed The Saturday Evening Post her life-changing rhinoplasty, which she says transformed her from “hideous to not hideous.”
“I went from, in my mind, hideous, to not hideous,” she said. ”I did it the summer before going to a new high school. So there were plenty of people who wouldn’t know how hideous I looked before. That was a good, good, good change.”
Prior to her nose job, Lisa said that she had trouble making friends but now she seems to have plenty of friends, both from her old sitcom and from her upcoming projects.
Plastic surgery may not help Lisa make more friends at this stage of the game, but she may find that it opens up her career and allows her to play roles that aren’t just suited for quirky blondes. Or she just might decide that she is fine the way she is.
